Disappointed but being corrected
I purchased my Delonghi black kettle, with a matching toaster in May 2011. The kettle stained inside on the bottom almost immediately on using it - Melbourne water which is pretty good quality! It has been used about twice every day, with the exception of being overseas for 6 weeks, now it doesn't boil at all!! Very disappointed with this, as it has been treated with care - one middle aged user. I thought the warranty was only 6 months, but have just called customer care to be told it is 12 months. I have now taken it to the repairer as advised by cust care, but will be without a kettle between 2 - 4 weeks!
Just over 6 months and no longer works - Bad Value
Stylish and Practical
A very classy design and looks great with the matching Toaster.
1.7 litre capacity, which boils quickly and stays hot longer than other kettles I've owned. It doesn't drip nor does it taste. It comes in a range of colours. Overall im very happy with my purchase and managed to haggle The good guys down to $110
quick boil, easy to clean, nice handle, no drips
lid is a little tight, water level is a bit hard to read, a little noisy when boils
Love the look!
I love the look of this kettle though David Jones seemed to be the only store that stocked it in black. It is a bit more expensive than stainless steel kettles but I think it is worth it. I find it to be really good to pour, a lot of the kettles that I tried out in-store seemed to be awkward to use and top heavy which hurt my wrist. I like using cordless kettles. Not really quiet but is not too noisy.
The look. Easy to pour.
It is difficult to difficult to see how much waster is in the kettle using the water level indicator. The lid is a bit difficult to lift off and I do find it a bit annoying to have to lift the lid off, I prefer to use a lift release button.

Know better, choose better.
I LOVE this kettle. I only found out about it because of product review. I was thinking of buying a breville BKE260 but it had some scathing reviews and i hardly buy anything without researching it on here first! One of the reviewers mentioned the Delonghi kettle as being really good and far better than the Breville. So i looked it up on the internet and fell in love with the design of it straight away. I like to have a kettle that looks a little bit different because it's always on the bench and we always have to look at it many times a day. I...dont want an ugly boring kettle. At the moment it's the pride of the kitchen :) I would like to give the kettle 5 stars but i have to take 1 star off for Delonghi's customer service.:( I purchased the glossy pearl white colour. It looks decorative, elegant and stylish. The lid comes off to fill it and it's easy to pour because it has a pointed spout and the handle supports the weight of the kettle really well. Very comfortable to use. Boils quickly and quietly. Was very hard to find! I read a recommendation for this kettle and tried to buy it from any of the big name chain stores myer, harvey norman, good guys etc etc.., but no one stocked them. So i tried Delonghi's website to buy it online but they only sell replacement parts or accessories, not a 'whole' product, So i emailed Delonghi to find out where in Melbourne i could buy one and guess what....i didn't get a response! Anyway i found an online shop called insane deals and they sent it to me and it still worked out cheaper than full RRP. Yay for insane deals!
Style over Substance
We have upgraded from a rather slow and loud stovetop kettle to the Delonghi Icona. We purchased this kettle from Harvey Normans in the white. It is an absolutely gorgeous looking kettle, it's heavy and easy to recognize as good quality. Having read previous reviews on this site, I thought I was purchasing a rather quiet kettle but I haven't found this to be the case - it is not at all quiet except for when it turns off! I don't think it makes an exceptional cup of tea like others are claiming either. If you want a beautiful accessory in your kitchen that is good quality but in all essence works as well as your average kettle then this is a good choice.
Pretty, good quality
