This kettle IS cordless. I've had mine for over two years now and it's the best one I've ever bought. In fact the first review on there is mine . It boils a one cup measure (300ml) of water from cold, in 59 secs ( yes I timed it!). It's still as glossy looking as the day I bought it, the only sign of wear is the cup measure guide on one side has worn slightly.

Your review is why I bought the kettle

Thanks!

bought this about a year ago, nice and lightweight very happy with it!

Thank you just ordered

Great kettle, got one. Two year warranty as well IIRC.

ECO? all the kettle I have ever owned must have been eco if they just need a scale up the side to tell you how much water you have in them.

Compared with what exactly? Is this a nuclear-powered kettle?

That will be the advanced technology cup marking system on the side of the kettle so you only boil the right amount of water

Why are they always only 1.7 litre?

Why are they always only 1.7 litre?

Probably because hardly anyone wants to boil more than that. By the time it's boiled 1.7 litres (about 3 minutes) the extra time needed to refill it is proportionately small.

Review from which:

The excellent HD4644 jug kettle from Philips is a Best Buy because it’s quick, energy efficient and well built.

The HD4644 might be a good choice for small households, as it can boil as little as a single cupful of water – so you won’t be wasting electricity by heating more water than you actually need.

It’s only takes two and a half minutes to boil a litre of water, and a single cupful will be ready in 57 seconds - so there’s plenty of time to grab a cup of tea during the ad break.

The limescale filter traps a reasonable amount of scale, and it’s one of the easiest to get in and out when it needs cleaning.

The lid opens with very little effort and the large release catch should be suitable for most users – even those with poor dexterity. The HD4644 can also be filled via the spout if you prefer.

The dual water gauges are clearly marked in cups and the jug fits onto the base comfortably from any angle, so it’s convenient for left and right-handed users.

The on/off switch lights up so you can tell at a glance whether the kettle is switched on.

The white plastic exterior is easy to clean, as marks and splashes wipe off with very little effort.

Pros: Quick, energy efficient, can boil as little as a single cupful, excellent build quality

Cons: Could be quieter when boiling

The Philips HD4644 is also a full high definition kettle. It makes water 80% lighter (some people call this 'steam') hence it is eco friendly as it therefore uses less water. Also they send it in a used Tesco shopping bag so there's no waste with cardboard and other non-eco capitalist products.

In fact I've just bought 70 of them for my entire street so we can all recycle our old non-eco ones and move to 3000w of Chinese designed and built HD steam.

Boiling hot UK deal.

Dixons have the same price http://www.dixons.co.uk/gbuk/philips-hd4644-60-cordless-electric-kettle-01062595-pdt.html

Dixons is doing free delivery at the moment (MET-A-99 is the automatically applied code in the basket).

You can boil only 300ml of water if you want, a lot of kettles need more water than that in order to work properly. Therefore it is saving energy. But no doubt you can find another that can boil less... *sigh* lol.

Your review is why I bought the kettle :)Thanks!



Ooh fab, you're welcome! *thinks I should get commission from Philips*

Sorry I was not disputing whether or not it was a good kettle, just the fact that having a cup scale on the side made it eco. I would say 90% of the kettles made now have the disc type element making them equally suited to boiling small amounts of water but they are not advertised as eco.

Just ordered, my £3 Tesco value kettle is leaking. This is my birds birthday pressie

We’ve got this kettle (but unfortunately paid full price — 25 quid — for it, in Asda, a while back). I really like it. It’s incredibly quick to make a single cup of tea, if you fill it just for that amount. The scale is calibrated in “cups”, with a little diagram of a cup on each cup number, but to fill a proper decent mug of tea I find I have to get the water just below one and a half “cups” worth. It’s a very likeable kettle.

Whats the direct link as I can't fnd it on the amazon site at all for this price! I've done a search for HD4644 and free delivery I get a toaster & a book

Really wanted to use my HUKD voucher on this

Sorry found it, its: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B001EHF3OG/

It's not the HD4644 but the HD4644/00 that's why I think the searches didn't highlight. Placing the order now, thanks for posting

Still available at this price and I'm very tempted having read the reviews on amazon and comments on here.
