I have one and no problems, good kettle very fast boil
Fast boil, illuiminating, water window. Nonsense lol
I had one of these, it lasted a couple of months. I was pleased with the kettle initially but after a while the lid fails to stay closed. I ended up having to place something heavy on top of it when boiling. Steam everywhere. It's in the bin now. Wouldn't recommend. Amazon reviews reveal the same problem.
Kettles these days just don't last. I wouldn't buy and expensive one.

Mine has lasted for years.

But then, it's a plain steel kettle. No electrics. On an induction hob. Boils just as fast as an electric - first thing I tested when I got it. Forget trying this on halogen or gas though, takes forever, been there.

Only downside being it doesn't shut itself off once it boils. Just sits there whistling - and blowing a bit of steam about. But I can live with that.

Did you work out if it costs more to use that kettle over an electric kettle? Seems to take longer to boil water but I use a gas stove. I hate electric kettles because limescale seems to show up more often than in a steel kettle. Nothing vinegar can't sort out though.

I've had RH kettles in the past and have one right now (though it's a Brita filter one but stopped buying the filter - just needs regular clean-up of the limescale). Was gonna buy this but remembered having this kettle before, it has a flimsy lever, the insides are plastic (afaik) and tastes of metal that goes away eventually but the taste sometimes returns - embarrassing if you have guests. It will take longer & louder to boil as most kettles are designed to fail eventually (so companies get you rebuying cheap appliances). The top of the lid will also leak but think that's with most cheap kettles.

Having said all that, might buy it anyway and get extra protection for £4 to cover 3-years. It will probably be needed.

Same. I've had the same stove top kettle since the early 2000's and never had any issues with it.

The problem with electric kettles is that people buy them, they last a few years and they then get tossed for a replacement.

Stove top kettles on the other hand don't really have planned obsolescence (as there's not much that can really fail on them) whereas electric kettles certainly are designed to fail after a few years.
Got a Swan kettle, cheap, real 304 stainless steel inner & outer, fast boil, now in its 7th year, really hard water area, no plastic fungi whiffs like with the plastic ones and descaled once a year to keep the filter clean

I seem to remember doing some quick sums when I got it and my estimate was the induction hob actually used slightly less electric. But it's a rough guess, I have a power monitor I can use on the kettle to see exactly how much it uses, but I can't do the same with the hob as it's not plug-in.

My old kettle was 2KW, so I doubt it's going to use more. Especially with the hob being marginally quicker.

On a gas hob (which it sounds like you're doing) it will be slow. I tried it in the past, but it was way too slow. Induction is the only method that can boil a stovetop kettle in a decent amount of time in my experience.

In my case, my kitchen is also TINY. (And I mean REALLY tiny!) So the extra worktop space I save is also a bonus.

Yup.

That was when I switched. Yet another electric kettle broke, and I'd just installed the induction hob. So I took a punt and never changed back. Except when a few of my dunderhead friends are round who are not capable of working an induction hob ... lol ... I have an emergency electric (super cheapo) kettle for them. I call it my "idiot kettle".
I have this kettle and it’s super fast boiling.
best kettle we have had.
Super price.
Heat Added
For all those that threw away the kettle you know it comes with a two year (three year with online registration) warranty right ?
I have one of these. I will never get excited about a kettle but had no problems with it
Loved this at the beginning, but after about a year it oddly started to leak from the bottom. Good price, but be prepared to replace it quicker than you would like to.

Same issue, scalding water would pi$$ out the top of the lid when you filled it to the highest water level when you tilted the kettle over and pored the water too fast. It's cool if you want 3RD degree burns..
I've had two or these now. First one lasted 18 months (on-off switch broke off. ) returned to store. Given a new one, 6 months in and the lid is not functioning due to spring breaking. Haven't got round to exchanging this one yet.
How much electricity it consumes?
