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.
Purchased in November 2019 at Kmart Retail Stores for $20.00.
A bit loud but does the job well
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.
Purchased in June 2019 at Kmart Retail Stores for $17.00.
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.

Does a good job
This kettle definitely does the job and has lasted a long time. It's well worth the $20ish and does the exact same thing that an expensive one does. It takes about a minute or so to boil and have never had any issues. It also looks nice for an affordable kettle
Purchased this kettle in 2015 december, really cheap, does its job, still works perfectly, i use this kettle to boil water for my baby's formula, 2 and half years have no problems, i would definitely recommend this kettle whoever is on a budget but i must say it does not look cheap at all, very sleek suits my modern kitchen! Thanks kmart
Does the job
Does everything that a kettle needs to do. Is pretty good for the price and has lasted ages too... It's very simple and looks good in my home. All in all I'm actually very happy with the purchase. Was not expecting much from something from Kmart but they're definitely selling some good stuff cheap.
Stylish copper kettle doesn't last
I have purchased two of these kettles - the first one didn't last long and this one is already falling apart.
The first one lasted a few months - the lid wouldn't open of close and then every time I'd try to use it the power would Trip the meter.
The second one is a few months old now and the plastic bit on the switch where the light is keeps falling off.
