Love my kettle
I love my kettle as it looks Amazing in my kitchen with my matching toaster. I use my kettle everyday to make tea, my children lunches for school it is very easy to use. I recommend everyone to buy this kettle if you love the vintage look! I picked a black colour one to match my kitchen theme.
Looks great Works Great little noisy
I love the look with our red toaster.
Had no problem with it had it few years.
It is little noisy sometimes have turn tv up so my son can hear it whilst I use kettle.
It is good if you dont mind a little noisy upon boiling the water.
Do buy it if you dont mind this.
I purchased both Icona Vintage kettle and toaster on 15/12/14 from JB HI FI. I'm very disappointed with the kettle as the paint is now peeling off it. I paid $118 for the kettle and $147 for the toaster. The kettle sits on my bench top and now because of it's appearance it now sits in the cupboard. I do find it very loud as well when boiling. The toaster so far is good.
I bought this kettle based on its looks but have been really disappointed with its performance. My main concern is how hot the exterior gets, especially the lid. You can not touch the lid for a long time after boiling water. If you need to add water to boil again (unexpectedly need to boil water again so soon) the lid will still be scalding hot.
Staff at Harvey Norman talked me into buying it and conned me with the price, saying I would never find it cheaper anywhere else - guess what, that's because they have it manufactured with a different button so customers can never find the EXACT kettle anywhere else. I won't buy any more Delonghi products and won't ever walk into Harvey Norman again!!
Manufacture Date wanted
The kettle no longer boils water properly & will not boil again for sometime until after it cools down. Can anyone tell me when it was manufactured as I was told I purchased it in 2013 which I feel is not correct. I did purchase extra warranty however this was after another brand of kettle started to leak and was returned to supplier.
I was hesitant to buy this kettle when I originally saw it because of the price tag. I love the look of it and couldn't resist. This kettle has never failed, I have had no problems, no switches have broke and have had it for years. I really like it.
waste of money
4 days after use switch broke and had to turn it on and off at the power point
1 week later it started to leak water
purchased it with fly buy points and seemed to difficult to get a refund so i threw it in the bin
for a kettle at this price a lot more is expected , went back to using out $6.99 kettle which had been going for 5 yrs now

Element burned out after 18 months
The element in the kettle burnt out after 18 months of light use, being turned on a couple of times a day. Delonghi don't care either, hard to recommend a product when the company that makes them don't stand behind their product. Go buy a sunbeam instead still working after 8 years and cost a whole lot less then this piece of junk.
December 21st 2017 Update: Element died after 14 months of use
Used a couple of times a day, the kettle only lasted for 14 months before the element went in it. For a kettle that costs $100 the quality of the k...ettle was questionable. The retailer I bought it from no longer exists and DeLonghi weren't interested in it. Have replaced with a similarly priced sunbeam kettle, hopefully this one lasts a but longer.
Delonghi Icona Toaster
Bought this toaster 13 months ago and it is now cutting the power in the whole house. Contacted Delonghi and they refuse to repair or replace. Worst customer service ever. Avoid purchasing Delonghi products as they are overpriced rubbish. A $15 toaster from Kmart will last longer. Avoid Avoid Avoid
Love the colour and the vintage style.
Got this kettle via Qantas redemption to replace our aging breville kettle.
Love the red colour and the vintage style that seems to be trendy nowadays.
kettle does the job, decent boiling speed. A bit louder when boiling compared to our previous breville.
only negative after using our breville is that the lid needs to be pulled off completely as compared to the 'modern' designs that flips the lip back, not really Delonghi's fault but i guess its the styling.
I purchased both the Vintage Icona Kettle and Toaster. After 6 months of moderate use, (1 adult and 1 teenager) the kettle started to fade its Colour (blue). The toaster hasn't faded at all. As they sit on the bench side by side, it is very noticeable. The kettle works perfectly with no rust or scale build up, however am pretty disappointed as I paid a lot for it.
terrible product and warranty
I purchased the kettle in March 2017 from Harvey Norman and used it more than once every day. Within 4 months, the kettle has rusted inside and outside. When contacted the manufacturer under the warranty, I was given the run around - to take to an agent who will forward the product to the Delonghi and wait for their decision. You have to live without a kettle during that time. What a terrible product and what a terrible service. Please don't buy this product. I will not buy any of their product in my life time.

Reliable, quality kettle
We purchased 20 Icona kettles for our boutique hotel. We were initially concerned about this specific model after reading some bad reviews about the product, but our retailer gave us a written assurance that we would be covered if anything went wrong, so we went ahead and invested in 20 of them because the look really suited our room design and colour scheme. We have had these kettles in the hotel rooms for over two years now and not had any problems with any of them. I am aware some people think their kettle is rusting on the inside. We though...t we had that problem with our last kettle model until we realized that it was a brown discoloration of the stainless steel caused by people boiling the kettle with very little water in it. The stainless steel overheats and turns rusty brown. Our housekeepers now ensure that all the kettles have at least three cups of water in them each day and so we have not had any problems with discoloration of the stainless steel with the Icona kettle. None of them are showing any paint peeling either, so I am am not sure why one of the other reviewers experienced that. After two years of extensive use by many people, all of our kettles still look good and we get quite a few positive comments about their attractive design.
Icons vintage kettles
After two years kettle started to pack up as when boiling the water it cuts out as the switch is faulty and no parts to fix the problem just another throw away and buy a new one then the winge about land fill but as I say no spare parts for these kettles
Disappointed to say the least!
I have never bought a DeLonghi product before and I certainly will not be buying another! I was so excited when I came across the Icona Vintage Kettle and toaster range online. I bought the kettle and toaster and they looked awesome in my country kitchen. Didn't take long for the Kettle to start peeling, I was shocked at how cheaply these products are made. The toaster takes ages to toast... I can't believe I replaced my trusty 10 year old Tefal Toaster with this crappy one! DeLonghi products look beautiful...you pay a fortune for them because you think you are investing in something that's going to last...NOT. Ripped off big time!!!
Paint is peeling
The kettle works fine, but the paint is peeling and the the plastic top of the lid is cracked soon after purchase. There is scale on outside of the kettle, but we don't know how to remove it without removing the paint with it. Doesn't look good any more. Expensive kettle, but the quality is disappointing.
Kettle stopped working after 2 years
Bought kettle from good guy's after the first one broke down due to a whistling noise ie it was supposed to silent. We bought a different model which just broke after 2 years. Never again will i buy a delongi kettle very dissapointed with the product. Kettles shouldnt break down after 2 years when it was expensive to pirchase
Worst kettle and most expensive I have ever purchased
The kettle will not lift off the base. You need two hands, one to hold the base and another to lift the kettle as it sticks so tightly and I have been using it for only nine months with this issue beginning a few months ago. Delonghi cares only that it is a few months over warranty so will do nothing at all. They will not fix it and dont care to see it to access this issue, so I have to throw it away and buy another. They offered me 30% off another kettle, as if i would ever consider another one of these duds. Their customer care department...could only keep repeating it is over one year and therefore they offered to do nothing to help me. This is the worst customer service experience I have encountered and it is clear that Delonghi do not have confidence in their product as they are not willing to stand behind it and step up to ensure customer satisfaction.
Looks lovely in my kitchen and works impressively
Very pleased with the kettle my only criticism si the window that shows the water level is not very clear. Would certainly recommend the brand and as my Nespresso is a Delonghi brand l was very confident of this brand.Very stylish looking kettle and very pleasing to the eye holder
3 years, still working
We bought the Delonghi Icona kettle and 2 slice toaster 3 years ago and both appliances are still working well. Very happy with them.
The lid on the kettle is quite tight and difficult to open but my hubby adjusted the clip inside and it's all good. Will buy delonghi again if I need to.
Questions & Answers
Our pearl white DeLonghi kettle has had coffee spilt on it and it has stained the outside of the kettle. We have tried regular detergent but it doesn’t budge. We are scared to try anything harsher without advice. Any tips?
Why did my kettle just stop working, it's 18 months old. Is it old age
Is the kettle noisy? I currently have a Bosch kettle and it's really noisy any advise?
