The perfect kettle

When our first De Longhi kettle gave up after 10 years service, we bought a different brand from KMart.
That lasted around 6 weeks before the lift up lid stuck. It was a piece of junk really. Decided to splash out on another De Longhi and it is just the best kettle ever. Looks fabulous and is solid. Love it Show details

Removable and washable anti-scale filter

This kettle is easy to de scale and keep clean. I love the removable and washable anti-scale filter for my own peace of mind. It's also quiet when boiling which I love. All you need to do is boil and empty the water 3 times before you first use it and off you go. It looks so stylish on my bench. Show details

Poor Quality for the price. Disappointing

I bought this kettle couple of years ago thinking this was high quality because of brand and price. This is not to be the case. The kettle functions ok but the quality of the kettle itself is not up to standard. To thirds down the kettle on the outside a silver look rim that deteriorates overtime. The colour stripping and around the rim and discolouration. I have to continually wipe the rim a green substance comes off continually. Disappointed. I will not buy this brand again Show details

Worst kettle ever

Had this kettle for about six months and the colour is starting to come off near the base.
It first started a month ago and now it is peeling a lot.
Going back to my trusty Breville that we had for years and was half the price of this piece of rubbish. Show details

10/10

Love it.
Does what it needs to do and is very stylish, compliments the kitchen with the matte finish look.
We love it, and cant stop using it.
Recommend it to anyone e. Show details

Very noisy

Kettle is aesthetically pleasing but it ends there. Sounds like a train when boiling water. The sleek design would style any kitchen but don't buy if you're in the market for something practical. Show details

Good Kettle but colour came off

The Delonghi kettle is a great little kettle but the red surface started peeling off 6 months after we purchased it. We took it back to Harvey’s and they exchanged it for another one. Hope this one is ok, I love the colour. Show details

Disappointed in my Delonghi Kettle

I purchased my Delonghi Kettle and matching 4 slice toaster on the 28th November 2017. The toaster seems to be going well however, I am very disappointed in the finish of the kettle. The black colour seems to scratch so very easily and the chrome at the base is peeling. Does not look presentable any longer. Show details

It was great when it did work

When the kettle was working it quickly boiled water and I was satisfied with it however it broke just after a year and it kept turning off before the water had boiled. The kettle is very hot to touch from the outside and the lid does come off completely. I probably wouldn’t consider this style of kettle again given my concern for safety. Also may reconsider ever buying a delonghi brand kettle again given the short lifespan. Show details

quality not good

Kettle water leaks out of the level window and colour is coming off. The silver strip around the lower level of kettle is peeling off. Not happy with this products and it is not cheap to buy definitely not happy with this products at all. I have bought cheaper products than this that have lasted longer and performed better that than this product Show details

Looks good, but that's about it

I bought this purely because of the blue colour!!

The base is pretty light and feels like poor quality compared to my previous Sunbeam one.

It is really noisy and seems to take ages to boil - even when not full (1.7litre model).

Kind of expensive for a kettle at $130.

But hey - it looks pretty!!

Great Upgrade

Purchased kettle as other stopped, very happy with the look and is very quick at heating up without making to much noise as it boils the water, holds 1.7 litres and so far no problems ,the old plastic kettle used to have an aftertaste but this one is fine so far, will no after further use of product.

Ok, so if there are so many problems with this kettle why are they not being recalled & why are Delonghi allowed to keep selling this ? They are not the cheapest items out there & it is supposed to be a premium product. Delonghi obviously don’t give a toss about their customers as indicated by the lack of response to these issues.poor form.

Why is the black colour coming off around the rim of my kettle I only wipe it over with a damp cloth.

Mine is doing the same I think mine is because the water slowly leaks out of the bottom of the water level window I have the Bronze one

Mine is around the rim where the lid fits, lot of money for this to happen. Wouldn’t buy another one
