Kettle has an aesthetically pleasing appearance. The lid is metal with no plastic on the inside. The water level is easy to read. The kettle boils relatively quickly, although similar to other kettles we have owned. This kettle is quite. There is a small light to indicate it is boiling but this is sufficient. The lid can be hard to remove and put back in completely. There are some small scratches after six months of use appearing on the interface between the lid and the rim. Overall decent kettle, so far so good.

SOOO NOISY ! WAY TO LOUD
It's a kettle, looks good and works well however it's SO loud you have to stop talking / turn the tv right up when it's on. Definately would not buy another one. My mum also has one with exactly the same issue. Get this kettle is you are deaf lol
delonghi kettles (crome) silver, stainless steel around kettle has come off. would not recommend. tried to get refund but no joy price was expensive. at the price you would like to think it would last.
Peeling and not good quality
Bought the kettle and matching toaster. Peeling and fire hazard. Not worth the close to $300 that was spent on their products. They look good but poor quality. Not impressed.

Do not buy this!
Kettle heats water, tastes like any other but it sounds like I've got cars backfiring in my kitchen, have to yell over it, turn the tv / radio up to hear it whilst it's boiling. Loudest kettle I have heard. The lid is stiff to get off & on, it's a pain. Toaster does not toast evenly. Terrible!

Stylish, noisy, slow, rusty and dangerous.
The noisiest kettle I have ever owned. Can’t hear the tv or hold a conversation. Cannot use if someone is sleeping!
Takes too long to boil.
Bottom of the kettle has a black rust within months. Water tastes burned.
Difficult to refill. Stiff lid is a struggle. Measure is useless, allowing over boil.
Dangerously hot to touch!

Chic looks, fragile design
We bought this in red along with a matching DeLonghi toaster as they were quite stylish but it proved be a big mistake. I'll discuss aesthetics firstly, and the good looks didn't last long before the chrome ring around the lower section began peeling off. Then the black vent on the lid simply cracked in half with one side simply falling off exposing bare rusted metal to conveniently burn yourself on every time you try to remove the lid to refill. And that is quite an effort too. It is stubborn to take off and put back on again, as someone el...se referred to. The water level indicator running along the back is pointless as it never accurately displays the true volume of water leading to more hand burning as I'm left to remove the broken top to check the level. Apart from the fact that the chrome and plastic (or is it Bakelite?) lid broke, this is one of the noisiest kettles I've ever heard, or owned. I have to turn it off to hear conversation from someone talking to me in the same room, and I have to turn the volume on the TV in the next room up to continue hearing any show I'm watching until the kettle boils and turns itself off. I could not recommend this kettle to anyone, and I'll be staying away from DeLonghi in future. I guess that'll teach me for choosing design over function (but to be fair, I couldn't do a sound check in the store).
Fake fake fake!!! When I pay nearly $300 for the pair, I want the real deal and not Chinese!! What a rip off!
Chinese fake product!! What else needs to be said... Disgusting. How is this allowed in Australia? It should be a clear statement that this product, despite the high price, it's made in china!!!

RUSTY AFTER A MONTH
It has taken 2 weeks to get rid of the very tinny taste. Also 3 weeks later the inside has rusted . Taking it back to good guys today as not happy. I absolutely love the look of it and was so excited to buy it but very dissappointed! Going for a different brand. I thought $100 for a kettle was steep and it is if it rusts within the month.

Wouldn’t buy a new one
Loud, very loud for a premium kettle, taste is fine. It’s slower than most, but that’s because of the 1.7l volume, which is larger than most.
Had this kettle now for 5 yrs now, average 3 boils a day, but it disappointed me from the very first year for what you would be touting the looks. The chrome started peeling the first year and asked if something could be done about, the staff at the good guys said it wasn’t an issue that could be resolved.

Was super excited to have saved up to afford a kettle that i had been wanting for quite some time.
I was under the impression that DeLonghi was a good brand. Only backed by a 1 year warranty should have warned me. In 14 months I noticed the outside of the kettle rusting. Upon further inspection the inside of the kettle rusted as well. Was so shocked by this. Would not purchase another item from this brand.

Worst kettle design possible
The lid is very difficult to come off or get back in. When it does come off, the residual moisture trapped in the lid gets everywhere. The water meter does not reflects the actual water level. The last bit of water would never come out without spilling everywhere. The worst is that it takes like 3 times the time to boil the same amount of water with other kettles. The worst possible kettle ever.

Had a good run from this kettle
I had this kettle for a good 7 years it was reliable ,a bit noisy when boiling, eventually had to chuck it out when it started to Leak from the bottom, I would recommend it and I would buy another one.
Purchased in March 2013 at David Jones for $199.00.
My first kettle lasted about 2 yrs then stopped working so we bought another one and same thing happened after 2 yrs stopped working , expected more for the price these sell for. Wouldn’t buy another one

- Icona Kettle
it must be 1-2 years out of warrenty but it keeps stopping working, i'm a bit worried it might be dangourous. Not very good as I paid to get a good product and only lasted a few years. Not impressed with China produced goods. Update : having said this review, we have gone and purcchased another delonghi this weekend, for hte price, functionality and look, we think it is good value even if it fails after 4-5 years. Probably no different to any other brand these days.
