Looks like glass but it is clear plastic. A plastic kettle!
My wife bought this to replace our well used Home & Co 1.7l glass kettle which was great, but was starting to rust. We loved that so we had no hesitation to buy another to replace it. Unfortunately they don't sell the same one anymore and this one was only 1.5l but we accepted it for what it was.
When we brought it home I was instantly disappointed. Initially the lid wouldn't open when the button was pressed but eventually got it open by prying it slightly around the edge with my fingers. The we discovered the lid doesn't open fully which make...

Looks nice, boils water
My requirements for a kettle was glass for visibility, lightweight for arthritic hands, and at the lower end of the price scale. The Kmart Anko kettle at $39 fitted the bill and was in stock at my local Kmart.
It’s working fine. Boils the minimum 0.5L in about 2 mins but takes about 10+ seconds at a roiling boil before the auto cut off.
The worst feature is that the lid does not open fully which makes filling the kettle difficult. The photo below shows the maximum angle the lid would open.
All the components are very lightweight, don’t look...or feel strong, but seem adequate: - The body of the kettle looks like there are 2 thin layers - an outer of clear plastic that keeps it from getting too hot and an inner of glass - bordered at the top and bottom by very, very thin stainless steel- coloured bands. - The cover is black plastic partly covered by stainless steel-coloured surrounds. The hinges are plastic and feel very flimsy and breakable. - The spout is shallow and wide with a metal mesh that is not removable.
