It's a kettle!

published

Solid little stainless steel kettle and perfect for 1 or 2 people. Lighter due its compact size. Boils fairly quickly. Noise: Average for a kettle. Design: Outside of kettle does get very hot so beware around small children. The water gauge is difficult to view, but very easy to water level when you open the large diameter lid.

Purchased in January 2020 at Myer.

Terrible.

published

Very loud when operating. Too hard to read filling quantity due to its location. Water awful taste. The so called limescale filter, holes too big to be effective. Would not recommend.

Purchased in January 2020 at Bing Lee Physical store for $59.95.

Happy with this kettle

published

This kettle, in the clear range, is a good size for one or two people. It looks nice and I like being able to see the water boiling inside. It boils a little faster than my larger kettle. The lid collects condensation bubbles though, being glass in the centre. I would prefer a fine filter in the spout rather than perforated holes, a cheaper option not favoured by me for the price. When cleaning the scale marks off the bottom next time I will fill less than 2/3 as a little water/vinegar solution boils out at the end. Luckily I placed it on my sink. Do on a warm day as you need to open a window to rid vinegar smell out of the house.

Purchased at Myer.

Perfect for one person use

published

The product images show it has a aluminium body but it has a plastic water level part on the side, The water level is difficult to look at there, I am not sure why it was designed. The aluminium quality is good and I found the whole unit quite solid. It is a bit noisy when boiling, a little bit noisier than my last used Chinese brand kettle. The size is perfect for one person, however, if you use it with 2 or more people, 1L could be too small.

Great Little Kettle

published

I bought this kettle for a small bed-sit kitchen and it's great. It holds plenty of water for its size and boils quickly. I think it would suit a standard size kitchen as well. It has a soft open lid (nice) and it's not too noisy. It's mostly made of metal and the stainless steel doesn't mark/show fingerprints, marks etc.

Pity about the plastic top

published

A great kettle but the plastic top on the lid soon became cloudy and cracked. No, I did not overfill it. I emailed Breville but they said the spare part was not available. That is not like Breville, in my experience, and my next kettle will be a different brand.

Nice compact shape looks good on the benchtop

published

Like the wide,soft opening see through lid and the design which avoids the overuse of plastics in the interior. This results in a limited view of the water level from the exterior but you can get a fair idea anyway by looking through the lid. Conveniently positioned switch on/off and opener.

Sorry I can’t advise, as my kettle doesn’t make that type of noise. It may be faulty.

Does it sound different from other kettles you used in the past? It is hard to know how the pebble/marble stuck sounds in your case. Can you see if you can post a sound or video on what you experienced?
