Save the money...Buy something elseAnko 1.7L Stainless Steel Kettle - Stainless Steel
Kettle is noisy.
Inside base start to rust after a week. ( we got water filter in house )
Buyers with Kmart Anko kettle could be drink rust . For $20 it's ok but health could be more expensive)
Ok for the priceAnko 1.7L Stainless Steel Kettle - Stainless Steel
Seems ok for the price, yes it is loud and yes the exterior does get hot (it is filled with boiling water after all) but for $20 can't really complain much.
Boils water quickly and doesn't impart a funny taste so no issues there, spout is well designed and makes pouring easy.
The level is a bit hard to gauge when filling as your hand covers the indicator however its easy enough to look inside and you can see the top / bottom of the level indicator.
Time will tell of its durability however thus far seems ok.Show details
Hate It.Anko 1.7L Stainless Steel Kettle - Stainless Steel
I only bought this kettle last week and I hate everything about it, as soon as this lockdown is over I am going to get the one I normally buy and chuck this rubbish in the bin.
The water gauge is impossible to see when I am trying to fill it because the handle covers it and my hand is on the handle.
The outside gets ridiculously hot…it’s noisy, sounds like it’s going to blow up…hopefully it doesn’t.
Also the water tastes a bit on the funky side..After the first coffee I started boiling water on the stove for my morning coffee…because it’s morning and I need the first sip to touch my soul…not to make me gag.
It won’t sit properly on the base…I guess I got what I paid for…$20 does not a good kettle make!

Poor qualityAnko 1.7L Stainless Steel Almond
Household of 2. Daily use. Boils water quickly. Medium-high noise level. Outside of kettle dangerously hot. After approximately 10 months of use the button to lift the lid just disintegrated one day. Under the button we can see metal parts rusted out. Some plastic parts just disintegrated. Unlike other reviews we did not see any black particles in water. We only use filtered water in kettle. Better to spend more money and buy a kettle that lasts and not create landfill.
Would not recommend this kettle.
I purchased this product 4 months ago. Used daily by 3 adults The product has performed perfectly.Anko 1.7L Stainless Steel Almond
In the past I have purchased very expensive electric kettles for the house and purchased this kettle for camping. So pleased with the product I brought the another kettle for the house. Whilst this jug is not noise free it is an improvement on previously used products. Water taste is excellent the water level is clear. The exterior of the kettle gets warm but not dangerously hot.Show details

A bit loud but does the job wellAnko 1.7L Stainless Steel Kettle - Stainless Steel
A reasonable kettle, although i returned mine after 6 months as it started rusting inside. The spout is nice and pointy and pours well with no spillage unlike some other Kmart kettles.Show details
Cleaned after first use I found small black specs in water. tried bottled water same resultAnko 1.7L Stainless Steel Almond
To be honest I couldn't taste any difference in the water but after I found black specks in it I decided not use tap water only bottled water but it was the same black specks so I will buy something else .Show details
TerribleAnko 1.7L Stainless Steel Kettle - Stainless Steel
The kettle looks great and is pretty well built, but after a month and cleaning it really well five time's, and boiling a heap more time's then should be needed, it still leaves a horrible taste in the water. I have now bought a new more expensive one and after just the initial clean it is perfect. This kmart one was just a waste of money and could be toxic to your health if thing's are leaching into the water.Show details
BELLINI Electrical Kettle - DANGEROUS1.7L Stainless Steel Silver
This kettle leaves a great deal of unreliabilty in its wake. Looks good, but leaks all over the base where the electricity is sourced. At best it is dangerous, at worst it could lead to an electrical fire under some conditions. Look at the attached photos.
The manufacturer is TOTALLY unreliable and all the products it makes must be viewed with caution and should not be purchased. Dennis RoyShow details
Dangerous!!1.7L Stainless Steel Silver
This is kettle number two,after approximately four months the water started pouring out into the base which is live!! Took it back ,Kmart said they hadn’t had any other complaints about this model,replaced it with the same model,after just a few months same thing again ,water poring out of the bottom of the kettle.Kmart need to recall these before someone gets electrocuted !! Will be returning this one today.Show details
Love it!1.7L Stainless Steel Silver
Super happy with this kettle. Definitely recommend it, especially for the price. Better than the more expensive brand kettles I’ve owned. The stainless steel cleans up nicely.
Nice and quiet, quickly boils water, no weird tastes, stays reasonably cool on the outside.
Good purchase1.7L Stainless Steel Red
I purchased this kettle a few years ago now. Am only just looking at replacing it now as I had it boiling the other day and it didn’t stop it kept going, I switched it off at the PowerPoint and flicked it on again and this time it boiled and turned off when it was done. Think it was just having a moment. But since it is a few years old and some of the red has come off I’m going to upgrade but I would recommend it to anyone looking for a stylish none expensive kettle.Show details
Rubbish & potentially lethal1.7L Stainless Steel Charcoal
First kettle leaked onto the electrically live base after around a month of use. Back to Kmart for number 2. Lasted 4 months of light domestic use then the same thing happened again.
This is a potentially lethal problem, I will return the kettle to Kmart, they need to pull these off the shelves if they are still selling them and do a recall. Sure it's a cheap kettle but should still be safe to use.Show details
