Amazing price for such a handy kettle, 1.7 litres and very nice looking. Reduced price, many more prices cut down on many kettles and toasters at Asda! Heard this is nationwide

Isn't this the regular price for a cheap kettle?

Even still it's been reduced from £25 something pounds so still worth getting a cheap oneas a spare maybe
I had one of these, it worked well but after 18 months started leaking badly. A common fault with this model apparently.
Reported it to Philips who weren't even remotely interested.
Bought a Kenwood one eventually for much the same price which is much better and I'm still using it 5 years later.
The "Eco"-marketing is highly questionable and includes rubbish such as "...The unique "one cup indicator" feature..." Seriously? Is Philips suggesting no other kettle has a one-cup indicator? Even the £5 ASDA/George kettle has a one-cup indicator.
Who needs an indicator? Just pour 1 cup of water into an empty kettle and it'll boil 1 cup.

Everyone, judging by the number of people I see filling the kettle for one or two cups. I weigh mine on the odd occasion it is used (by hand) and typically have the perfect amount. Call me tight if you like, I'm saving the environment (and money).

Well it's supposed to be covered by a Philips 2 year guarantee.
Bought one from Argos years ago. Lasted just over 2 years and was really good until it started to leak like a sieve.

That's what I thought. They just told me take it back to the retailer and refused to accept and responsibility. Odd, as they're usually quite good with warranty with the Sonicare toothbrushes. Couldn't be bothered arguing any more over a kettle, so bought the Kenwood instead.

Oh well, I've registered my £10.40 one with Philips online, I'll see what happens when it breaks! I've rarely had a kettle last more than 2 years, so it's very likely I'll need to avail myself of the warranty.
Eco-Kettle..what cobblers.
So it has a slightly larger window and it scaled in cups.

My 17 year old Russell Hobbs has a scale and it's not hard to gauge how much water to put in.

What next, does it boil the water using less energy? Does it boil heat with a lower heat, over a longer time to save energy?

Don't get me wrong energy saving devices have a place. LED instead of filament lights, heat pump tumble dryers etc. As for a heating device, this is off the scale.

They are not all the same. This is much better than the rubbish you normally find at this price.
