Buttons get stuck - don't buy this!

published

We had this kettle for about 6 months before the most commonly used temperature setting buttons began to get stuck. Sometimes we'd have to press them multiple times, and very hard, for them to work. Other times, the kettle would just keep boiling and not shut off properly - probably because it "thought" that we were holding down the button, when in fact it was just stuck.

Poor manufacturing quality.

Leaks water from plastic sight window down onto electrics base just out if warranty.

published

Leaks water from plastic silicone sealed sight window .. down onto and around the electrics control base. Plastic sight glass and silicone seal got cooked by the hot stainless steel and hot water.... resulted in baked fracturing part allowing hot water to leak out. Tried to buy the replacement seal and sight glass kit but was told by russell hobbs service that they dont have.... just buy a complete new jug.
Obviously to us this is a pity to fill the tip with this not so durable kettle. I can fix if I can be sent the weak part.

Leaks from water level window

published

Overall this is a fairly good kettle.
- The keep-warm feature is especially useful.
- The cord is a bit short.
- It lasted close to 2 years before leaking from the water level window.
- Replaced by Big W under warranty.

Labels wear off

published

Heats up perfectly. Love the different settings. However - would love to know what those settings are.
After less then 12 months the labels that say coffee / white tea etc have worn off so I’m not sure what the functions are.

Not very longlasting

published

I've had this kettle for about a year and half, and now it finally died. It's really nice looking and not noisy. You can choose the right temperature for every tea or coffee needed & you can also keep the water warm if needed.
But my kettles element started playing tricks recently. I can only boil cold water, if it's lukewarm it won't let me boil it anymore as its thinks its already boiled.

Perfect kettle _except_ for the beep - have disabled now and its great!

published

Perfect variable kettle, however the beeping was driving our family bonkers. After we had a newborn it came time to finally fix.

Its nuts they didn't have a way to disable, beeping every time it is lifted/lowered/started/stopped/paused - so many beeps for each kettle usage.

You should never do this - I do not recommend this and take no responsibility - but this is how I was forced to stop the beep in a visual story.

To fix you'll need a tri-wing-bit (the ones shaped like a 'Y') to get the outer casing off.

See pics, and the beeper just needs the metal bit taken out. Pop off the beeper, remove the metal, put the plastic plate back.

Good kettle

published

I have had the kettle 2 months now and I'm happy with it, its a lot quieter than my previous kettle you do need to descale frequently to minimize the noise level. Only con is that the 100 degrees marking is showing signs of wear already so it no doubt will wear off all together, but it boils easily, is nice and quiet, so it is doing what I wanted

Good, but could be better

published

Purchased the Kettle from The Good Guys in October 2021, it chirps every time you do anything with it and the chirping cannot be turned off, very annoying also if you wipe the dashboard temp settings down the black painted temperature lettering wipes off they need to be engraved to avoid this.

A good quality kettle for the price

published

Been using it for 8 months. Looks solid and working well.
A bit noisy when it comes to boil, but otherwise pretty good for the price.
Water tastes good.

Only con, outside of the kettle is really hot.

Sprung a leak after three years.

published

I bought this model just over three years ago. It did everything promised, the water tasted fine. It seemed a little noisy when it came to the boil, but not enough to bother me. It was easy to see the water level as the water level indicator was at the side, not behind the handle like some models.
However, this morning it sprung a leak from that indicator and began trickling down over the base, even when turned off. I gave it three stars because I expected it to last longer than this.

Good value, quieter than my previous kettle, does the job

published

Very easy to use, have nice feature where you can select the temperature to suit your hot drinks. It's actually quieter too, replacing a Breville see-thru glass unit i had previously. All-in-all, good value for a digital kettle.

6 months in and it's rusty

published

I've had this kettle for less than 6 months and it's rusty on the inside and the boiled water now has a taste. I will purchase a different kettle and get rid of this one. I purchased this kettle because I was tired of poor quality kettles. I was wrong.

Works well

published

Easy to use, fill and press a button for temperature of the water, auto-shutoff when it's done, easy open lid (push button) and it's not very loud when boiling...Really nothing bad to say about this. It does what it is supposed to do and does it well. The keep warm is a nice feature, but I haven't needed to use that yet

Good price and works well

published

Loved it so far. Waited almost 2 months before writing review and it has worked perfectly. For us cable length is fine, not noticed it to be over noisy, we like the buttons lighting up and the beep when it reaches temp. Its a metal kettle so it gets hot...that's its job. It only has the water level indicator on one side, fine for us, but not for lefties. The speed the top opens was a bit of a surprise as our last one was a soft opener, but we are used to it now. Took out the filter as others have suggested to get better pouring flow.

Hi my kettle has recently stopped heating up. When the kettle is placed on the base it beeps and all the buttons light up. I then push a button to heat the water, there’s a beep but then it just goes back to all the buttons lit up. It doesn’t heat the water. Any ideas?
