Voted hot. I bought one of these on 20th October after bookmarking it from a previous deal. No complaints so far. In fact it is just as good as my other kettle. Same capacity, same boil time when full etc. but it was at least £10 cheaper. If the on/off switch had been above the handle it would have been ergonomically perfect (when the switch is above you can use your thumb to switch it on without changing grip).

Plastic Cold . If it was stainless steel or glass , would have voted hot
