Works great for me. Quick delivery, easy to set up
Its a great product. Was delivered within 5 days of ordering it. Easy to set up. I linked the smarterhome app with my google nest. Waking up to have my kettle boiled the same time as my morning alarm goes off is awesome. I found it quick to boil and quiter (compared to my old kettle) . Have only had it for a few days so will leave another review in a few weeks. So far, I love it.
Purchased in June 2020.
comes with different temperature setting. works same as how they mentioned. each temperature got different lighting option. but for me yellow light(90 degrees) is not working. instead of yellow i'm having green for 90 and 50 degrees. that's the only minus. but i'm not really unhappy. because functionally it is working good and perfect. 30mins keep warm function also available.
Disappointing Service Life
Great design and a great performer when it works as it should but just outside of warranty it started to go haywire. The keep warm function no longer operates it beeps continuously when it shouldn't and you have to switch it on and off to stop it after replacing it on the base. Would not recommend this product if you are expecting are reasonable service life.

Probably 4.5 stars. Great kettle
Great looking, fast to boil and easy to clean. No issues and I like that I can set the temp. I drink black tea and used to use a dash of cold water- only heat to 90deg now and I think the tea tastes better. Easy to clean- put in vinegar and boil, and thats it. LED lights look good.
Be interested to see how long it lasts, but brought on sale so if I get a couple of years I'll be happy.

Issues just after 1 year warranty expired
This kettle did the job until, just after the 1 year warranty expired, it developed issues with constant beeping on and off whenever the kettle is put back onto the base. I have tried to leave a review on the Kogan site but there is no function to do so, which makes me very dubious of the sites reviews!!
Definitely would not buy this kettle again.
Kogan 2L Cordless Smart Glass Kettle 2200W
This electric kettle is so fast, I have just bought my 2nd one, purely because of a breakage when dropped. It is clearly marked so that one can fill only the amount needed minimising waste of power and reboiling. There are options for heating to other temperatures, making the heat time even less. Being clear has an added bonus of being able to see that the internals are all clean and free of forgeign matter. The lights show if it is on or not. Excellent all round thanks Kogan. Also warantees etc. are digital so no excess packaging.
Purchased at online for A$39.00.

Heats up water quickly. Love the look/aesthetics.
Got this Kogan kettle via a Qantas point redemption. Very good for the price, especially if you can snag it during the $29-39 promotion. The variable temperature functionality is definitely helpful but not very intuitive at first. No complaints. Heats up water very fast.

Good cheap kettle with temperature functions
This kettle is so good for the price. You can hold it at 50, 70, 80 or 90 degrees for up to 30 minutes and the light up colours are just an addition extra that make it fun for the watching kids. I wouldn't pay full price but it's great for $30.

Awesome 2.0 Litre Cordless Smart Glass Kettle (KASMTGLSKTA) - Best Purchase of any Kettle to date
Kettle has great settings for different temperatures plus a “keep warm” function (great for entertaining). Boils quickly & quietly (2200 watts). Being a Coffee & Tea lover, the ability to choose 90C temp. for coffee or 100C for tea is perfect & energy saving. Great instant coffee; e.g., “Moccona” can be spoilt if a kettle has boiled & poured immediately over coffee. Older kettles without this option have to be manually stopped prior to “full boil” or left to sit so your favourite coffee doesn’t have that “burnt” taste. The kettle beeps twice ...having reached the selected temperature & also upon “reseating” on the base, which is a good safety feature. The 2.0 litre kettle is a cost effective, fabulous kettle, I’ve owned expensive “brand named” smart kettles in the past with similar features, but much more expensive. NOTE: Different kettle to the picture, kettle has a brushed stainless steel band @ the bottom and brushed stainless steel lid with touch button to open.
Space age light show!
This glass kettle lights up RED when you press boil and displays blue to reheat and green for Go. It is like a space craft about to take off with it's circle of coloured lights each time you use it. Very conversational kitchen piece and great VALUE at $59. It was delivered in 2 days from online ordering.
sleek look, works well
We bought this so we could see the water level and save energy by only heating the amount of water needed. It heats water quickly and does not get over hot (obviously not for children ). The other feature that is good is that you can choose three temperature to heat to, so for pre-boil temperatures this is great.

Looks nice, but has a few critical and dangerous flaws:
- Boiling water dribbles down the front of the kettle when pouring, splashing on the counter top and potentially yourself.
- When closing the lid, the filter that covers the spout always swings out and becomes jammed against the jug.
- The switch is thin, flimsy and looks like it'll break if bumped the wrong way.
Avoid this kettle like the plague.
Questions & Answers
Does anyone have any issues with plastic taste/smell with this kettle? We have had it for over a week. Tried vinegar and repeated boiling but the plastic taste/smell has not disappeared. It is a great kettle, but this issue makes us worried to drink from it.
oh really!!! i'm using the same kettle. i didn't get any smell like that. for you i made cup of 50 degrees hot water and tried. all good for me.
I had this kettle for less than 2 months it was good to start off with but after a while a black scum would appear in the kettle I cleaned it twice then a few days later it lit up but it wouldn’t boil. It didn’t have a taste to it just wouldn’t boil after I cleaned it so I bought another one else where. Bit disappointed as I’m a pensioner I couldn’t afford another.
