Nice kettle, I have one of these. The base place heats up rather than an element, so it heats up quicker and doesn't get so scaled up. It's easy to just boil what you need with this kettle. Good deal.

This was just under £18 around a week ago. I bought one as my previous one (a Prestige, about 15 months old) bit the dust (leaking badly around base) and I needed a replacement in a hurry.
It's not a dramatic reduction but good none the less. Happy with the kettle so far but time will tell as always with kettles.

y is this gettin cold votes? crackin deal

i thought this would have gone boiling hot by now !!

technically, it can be a max of 2990w if we assume no energy loss

Voted cold because of the numerous Amazon reviews that say it starts leaking and fails just out of guarantee!

3rd time listed yawn!

Damn I bought this from amazon when it was £16.90 which was a cracking price at the time also. Do you reckon because I purchased the item within 28 days they will refund the difference in price?

Bargain! I have this and I paid £25 or £30 for it a couple of years ago (can't remember which). As a kettle it's OK, no real problems. A bit plain/boring plastic white though. The energy saving part seems to mostly be one-cup, 2-cup, etc. marks on the kettle.

Good deal, have some heat.

Great deal, got one. Thinking of buying one at this price as a spare for when my current one fails!

Price gone up now!

Is this really energy saving re. cup marks?

I assume if you only boil what you need e.g. 1 cup, 2 cup a normal kettle will do just fine?

If it uses less power to heat the water up, doesn't it only take longer to boil so perhaps the same net power usage.

only £11.99 now!!

Looks a great buy but beware postage to Northern Ireland is £10.99. Where do these micky mouse companies like Amazon think we are.

Pretty much.
Water requires x amount of energy to increase in temperature, so whatever kettle you use, it will still use roughly the same amount of electricity to boil x amount of water.
I suppose the only way this kettle can be more efficient than the next is if it has better insulation, but since boiling a kettle only takes a minute or 2 it's not going to make much difference. I suppose it could have a slightly more efficient heating element.
But anyway, filling any kettle with the exact amount of water you need makes way more sense than buying this kettle.

But every kettle is made like that nowadays. You can of course boil less water in it than an old-style kettle, but why would it heat up more quickly for the same amount of water? The element is still there; it's just in a different place (and arguably less efficient because it is not totally surrounded by water).

Mine is over two years old now, used several times a day, and no problems at all. This is a fantastic price for this kettle, which is generally around £24.

That, plus the efficiency of the boil detector. There are some kettles which take almost a minute to detect that the water has boiled and cut the power. We have the Kenwood energy saving kettle with induction element, once the water reaches boiling it cuts off within 5 seconds, reducing the wasted energy.

If your kettle's like that, it's faulty! A kettle we had got worse after removing the filter (because the steam could escape more easily from the spout so took longer to get to the bi-metallic strip on the switch), but even then it only took about 15 seconds. Philips' dubious claims to energy efficiency don't talk about switching off so that will be bog standard. (_;)
