Lid sticks and needs spoon to open it

I bought this kettle (in sage green) about 6 months ago and soon after, the lid was sticking and I had to use a spoon to prise it open every time. I should have returned it immediately but didnt and put up with the difficult lid. Over time I got lazy and didnt close the lid when boiling because it was so annoying trying to open the lid. Because of this the kettle didnt switch off when boiled and last week it boiled dry and the kettle is broken and I have had to throw it away. My friends kmart kettle is the same and she also has to use a spoon to open it. Show details

Faulty design

The lid opening system broke immediately. We got the kettle replaced and soon after, the new one had the same problem. It's a faulty design. After a few months of struggle with the lid, the kettle stopped working. There is a problem with the electric connection. It's not the cheapest kettle, but any other cheaper kettle would be a better quality. Show details

Broke after 2 months

We bought the kettle 2 months ago and the button to lift the lid has stopped working. It is quiet and fairly quick at boiling the water but we now have to forcibly open the lid, sometimes with other utensils. Show details

Very dangerous kettle

I received this kettle in April for my birthday and after last night i won't be asking for or purchasing kmart appliances again ... The lead was melted in the socket and we're so lucky it didn't start a fire and the base got very hot not impressed Show details

Faulty lid button

Having been very happy with my Kmart toaster which hasn’t missed a beat, I decided to buy a “higher quality” (ie. more expensive) Kmart kettle so it would similarly last me years. Within a month the mechanism that opens the lid failed. Inexplicable- come on Kmart - mine is now the 5th review which mentions this - where’s your quality control? Show details

Lid keeps popping open so auto switch off doesn't work

Looks great but only had it for a few weeks before lid started popping open every time we used it so auto stop doesn't work. Have to hold lid down manually to reach boiling point. Kettle is also loud and outside gets very hot. Will be taking it back and requesting a refund.  Show details

I love it!

Bought the white version and love the look of it. It does make very alarming noises when warming up BUT it works well. At the moment, form wins out over function for me! Show details

4 weeks and already faulty

Loved the design. Unfortunately the lid just after 3 weeks stopped closing properly and therefore it doesn't switch off automatically. I am highly disappointed. I really want my money back. And it wasn't the cheapest.  Show details

Don't forget the vinegar!

This little unit looks good ( matches the Scandi, light-industrial thing we have going on in the kitchen)...BUT...if you don't do the vinegar boil beforehand ( as per instructions) the tea and coffee will be undrinkable.

Can't cut corners with that one. Show details

Noisiest kettle I have ever had

Look it boils water which is what I bought it for . I could have gone cheap but i loved the look. When you turn the kettle on it initially starts off quiet then it starts sounding like popcorn being cooked then it is quiet just before it turns off. I have used it at all different water levels and always the same so I will just put ip with it as I really do love the look and it’s easy to clean inside and out . Show details

Its just a kettle that rusts internally

We purchased this design of kettle some time ago from KMart. It has been terrific up until we discovered the base on the inside rusting. We have scrubbed the pot to no avail Show details

It's amazing, it boils water!

A stainless steel kettle for under $40
It has a cool comfortable handle so you don't burn your hands, when it has boiled. It has a nice easy pour. works for me. Show details

The kettle body on this kettle is made of stainless steel which does not contain BPA.

But the see through window is plastic. Is that BPA free?
