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.

Great product, beautiful design but very loud.
We purchased this kettle in 2017 with matching 4 slice toaster.
We loved the design and how it compliments other Delonghi appliances (coffee machine). It has served us well for nearly 4 years, however, it is very loud. Aside from that, functioned well and served its purpose: boil water and look nice in the kitchen.

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.
This kettle has lasted me 4 years!!! And I have tea around 3 times a day. Very impressed with it, except only recently it has started to leak when I tip it to pour water into my mug. Otherwise.. i think it lasted pretty well for a kettle that gets used so much.
Don't judge toaster and kettle by its cover!!
I have always admired De Longhi products but they were a little out of my price range. Last year one of the major supermarkets offered a De Longhi package deal which I could afford. Well, I was really impressed with their beautiful pastel colours instead of traditional silver or black and I thought how well the pale blue toaster and kettle would look in my kitchen, so I bought them on the spot!
Here's the judging by cover part; I have always thought that De Longhi was a good brand, unfortunately, the products I purchased quickly turned to disa...ppointment! The kettle spout is too narrow to allow a stream of water to fill up the kettle. I started to use this way to fill the kettle after the lid kept falling into my cup! The lid requires a resounding bang for it stay on. The 4 slice toaster though is the big disappointment; there are 6 browning settings on the toaster and turning the somewhat tinny knob to 4.5 setting it will still only toast one side and barely the other; I don't know how many times I have to toast the bread twice to get a decent colour. I have had a $10 jug in the past, the same with a toaster, and, even though they were as cheap as chips, I had more bang for my buck as the expression goes!
Purchased for $130.00.

Looks nice but noisy
Love the look of this kettle!! The lid is a little hard to remove when filling and the water level feature is hiding under the handle which makes it a little hard to see. The element is hidden but it is noisy when boiling. But it looks smart with its glossy finish.

Slow but reliable
Reliable, stylish and easy to use. I bought the red and the colour is great, I also bought matching toaster.
It doesn't taint the water, scale doesn't build up and it works fine with tank water.
Lost a star as it takes quite a while to boil. Linger than my previous cheapo supermarket brand, but apart from that I am happy.
It certainly looks nice on the bench!

A nice kettle
The kettle I purchased was lovely to look at, the water books quite quickly when full and has a great water level indicator. It’s a stylish, simple design which would match many styles of homes.
I was disappointed with the chrome that is on the lid and around the base of the kettle as it peeled and chipped off soon after purchase. This was a real negative as I paid for a great product which it wasn’t in the end.
Stylish but needs a few design issues fixed
Purchased about 3 weeks ago from The Good Guys in silver with the matching 4 slice toaster (look up my toaster review) & so far it’s still working yay! After comparing so many average kettles on the market this seemed to be the best out of the bunch despite price. After using it we are finding the base is frustrating to manage. It’s so thin & light that the cord won’t stay locked into the cut out groove. We have to duct tape it in. The handle is slippery & dangerous due to a smooth high gloss finish open ended design with no grip. Perhaps next ...model should consider safety of the handle design. The water indicator is opaque making it difficult to read at times & the internal mesh filter is a bit tricky to remove & clean. If only it came with a flip lid and heavier base that locks the cord in place it would be perfect otherwise. Apart from the above we like the size, the colour range, the vintage style and the pouring spout is very good with not one drip.

Water level indicator is opaque
Having unboxed the kettle from Goodguys, and topped up water for first time , the plastic water level tube is opaque and my elderly parents want to know idiot would make it like that. :)
Fair comment from people who have seen a few kettles come and go over 85 years. I think this one is going to go because of that annoying issue...
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.
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.
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.
