Perfect pretty little but awesome kettle
This "Delonghi icona capitals red kettle" has been quite helpful and reliable unit of kettle that I have ever owned. Importantly, it is also very safe to use and to operate.
Purchased in July 2019 at The Good Guys for $116.10.

Best kettle I’ve ever owned.
This is definitely the best kettle I’ve ever owned. The pouring spout is perfect, never spills a drop, it doesn’t leak when boiling, and the water tastes great.
It wasn’t cheap, but definitely worth the extra money, plus it looks great in my kitchen (I got the dark blue), doesn’t even show finger marks like most other kettles do. Highly recommend!!
Purchased at Myer for $139.00.
A quality product with a stylish look and great colour. Works well and gives that extra look to our kitchen.Just bought another kettle along with the matching toaster as backup, incase DeLonghi changes the design. Love the look.
November 14th 2019 Update: Great design
Had this kettle for three years now and have just bought a back up one as Delonghi seem to be changing there design and I wanted to keep the look in our kitchen.
The quality is top notch and this little work horse never misses a beat.
Good quality finish as well.
Would definitely recommend.
Purchased in November 2019 at Peter's of Kensington for $89.00.
I have had this kettle for near 6 years and absolutely love it. I love the look of it, I have lived in several places since owing it and it has looked great in every kitchen. It gets used daily and sometimes several times per day and is still as good now as it was new. The only thing I am disappointed about is that the Beige colour has now been discontinued so I cant buy a back up for when this one eventually stops- hopefully that isn't sometime soon. Will definitely be looking at another DeLonghi when the time comes.
Purchased in January 2014 for $149.00.

Worth the wait...
The kettle is wonderful, I am highly satisfied with taste of water, time it takes to boil, the water level is something I had to get use too. But easy once I retrained myself.
The kettle can get hot, but like anything its just the product doing its job.
I waited and got a bargain not only in price but the quality of the product lives up to the what you would believe it to be.
Purchased in May 2019 at The Good Guys for $50.00.
Kettle and toaster were bought secondhand from a friend moving abroad. Both are used several times a day and the kettle in particular has heavy use. No rust, no spills, pours beautifully and is perfectly weighted. Cannot see what all the fuss is about as we really love ours.
Purchased in September 2018.
11 years of loyal service
we have had the Delonghi Icona in red for 10+ years and it has been faultless - it's a handsome looking kettle and often visitors often make enquiries - we always recommend it highly and advise that they can buy with confidence. We're are purchasing exactly the same model now
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.

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.
Our 6 year old black Icona kettle died today. We bought it with a matching 4 slice retro toaster which is still going strong. Hubby and I were really impressed to get 6 years out of the kettle so are now on the hunt to buy another in hope that it will last just as long.
4 years old and still going well!
I've had my DeLonghi icona vintage kettle and 4 bread toaster for 4 years next month and it's still like new! It does have a slight crack/peel starting on the silver rim near the base but otherwise all good. (Can't complain about that though after 4 years) It gets used every single day! I have 2 kids so I've also done the constant boiling for the bottles and water as you do! I love it and think it was worth every cent spent on it! I don't find it cheap looking or don't think the parts on it feel cheap either! My brother bought the diamond looki...ng one which was cheap looking and didn't last long. I'm very happy with my set! I guess if you look after your things they will last longer. (I have never dropped it and I don't use chemical cleaning agents on it and it's been through 3 moves)
Fantastic, love my Delonghi
After reading the reviews here, frankly I'd have to say a lot of them are either written by competitors or people just simply aren't using their kettle properly. I've had my kettle for six months with a busy family, on weekends its used almost every half hour and it gets a real workout morning and night during the week too.
I've never found it any noisier than any other kettle, it's fast, reliable and I love the stylish look of it. It boils water, that's all I expect it to do and it does it well. I love it and will buy another if this ever fails on me.
Never missed a beat
I have no idea what these other people are on about! Purchased mine from the good guys March of last year and oh my goodness, I was surprised at how well it has done. At the time it was top of the line (and cost me a pretty penny) but I was really wanting a statement piece and the matching toaster and coffee maker sold it for me. All three have been working like a charm since that day and I wish I used the coffee maker more often as it makes the most delicious coffee but I am just more of a tea drinker.
Great Kettle !
I was in the hunt for a new kettle as our last one called it quits after 4-years. My better half wanted to pursue the DeLonghi Icona as it'd match the toaster we recently purchased, something having to do with matching appliances or something... Anyway, the DeLonghi Icona was high on the list by virtue of aesthetics although I must say I was very concerned in pursuing after reading the reviews posted on this website. In the end we 'bit the bullet' and made a leap of faith, and design, and made the purchase.
I'm pleased to say that after 4...-weeks of use the kettle has worked beautifully with no faults. The lid's removal was firm but easy, nothing like a review I read earlier. The bottom is fine and not rusting, it wasn't any noisier than our past Breville kettle, time to boil was reasonable, and I even like the narrow spout for pouring. The handle is nice and wide and comfortable to grip. I guess the only complaint, and I wouldn't rate it as a complaint... more like a comment, is that the water gauge is hard to read as it's quite slim and sits behind the handle so you've got to twist the kettle and jiggle it a bit to see the water mark. But that's it ! I'd recommend this and suggest you give it a go if you're in the market. Ours cost $99.00 and was purchased at a local Harvey Norman who price matched to JB-Hi Fi, which was out of stock. As I told The Wife, "If it doesn't work out to our liking we can always return it." Good luck !
I purchased this kettle nearly 3 years ago and it has worked perfectly, with no problems at all. Looks great, easy to use and clean. When I purchased it the lid was a little tight but I adjusted it and it has been fine. I also purchased the toaster also. I recommend them both.
Can't beleive bad reviews
I cant beleive I almost was about to cancel this purchase because of bad reviews in this site.
The weight is realy ok and it works reasonably quiet considering it is a steel kettle.
The handle is really comfortable and the water level could be seen well when puring the water.
I also like that it is easy to clean, because drops of watter are not seen as on other stainless steell kettles.
For some people lid could be the issue, but as I am pouring watter without removing the lid it is not an issue for me.
Design, quiet, comfortable handle
Price, Lid opening not as easy as on other kettles
A great kettle, quiet, quick to boil the water. Comes in a range of stylish colours to match any decor in your house. Large handle for a strong hold when pouring out, doesn't drip at all, easy to fill with a wide spout and easy to remove lid, sits nicely on the base for cordless use.
size and colours
The best kettle ever,efficient and stylish
modern design with great capacity for family.Great energy saving features and makes my life that little bit easier,love it.Easy grip handle with easy top up which i only found with the Delonghi range and everyone has commented on it as it is colourful,funky and well made.It is light weight but solid too,well done Delonghi
energy efficient and functional
I wanted a red kettle to replace my existing one which I was having to use a rock on the old kettle's lid to keep it down (as the mechanism was broken) and put up with it for at least 3 months whilst I searched for the one! (The Murphy Richards kettle just didn't do it for me by the way). The De'Longi Icona kettle fitted the bill with it's teapot/jug style, chrome lid & spout, sturdy handle, cordless, good size, it came in a beautiful red and the lid had no mechanism -so was one less thing that could wear out. I am 100% happy with this kettle a...nd its quality (I have had mine for nearly 2yrs)and I really do enjoy using and seeing it in my kitchen! quality , style, design and colour more than what i wanted to spend but i don't regret it and would gladly buy another.
Hot hot hot!
Such a stylish and iconic kitchen must have! It does the job AND looks good. The Delonghi boils reasonably quick , is quiet and is VERY easy to keep clean. We even bought the matching 4 slice toaster just to make that extra statement. DeLonghi definitely statement items, that need to be seen as well as used.
It looks GREAT.
Maybe a little loud when boiling - but only in small areas.
