When they say it's got a pilot light do they mean a light that illuminates when you turn it on? Because I think every electric kettle ever made has one of those. Or do they mean a pilot light like in a boiler?

What they mean is most kettles don't have individual cup markings, especially down to the one cup level. A lot of kettles have markings for 0.5L, 1L, 1.5L etc, and even those that have actual cup markings are difficult to guess just a single cup amount as the markings may start at say 2 cups onwards. This new energy saving is becoming more common on more kettles recently, so it can only be a good thing right?

I have just bought this kettle and can confirm it looks good and the cup markings are surprisingly accurate!

I know that, mine just has 0.5L markings too, but you know what? I have learned how much water to put in for 1 cup. It wasn't difficult.
