love love love
Love it! $160 worth of gorgeousness! Had always bought Russell Hobbs in the past but the last one corroded in a short amount of time. Quiet, and lots oh so nice.
Purchased in August 2019 at Peters of Kensington for $160.00.
Given the cost $199 it's a pricey. It does have quick boiling time and isn't too loud, and alongside the toaster it adds a touch of flair!
But it's still a kettle!
Stylish Retro and Gorgeous red that makes a statement in the kitchen. Boils quickly and holds a lot of water although is quite heavy even when empty. Its also not too loud when boiling which is important for me in large open plan space.
Purchased in February 2019.
Handsome and stylish
I chose this kettle for its classic, handsome and everlasting style. Eye catching, Quick to boil, easy to fill. Superior in quality. Nothing more attractively simple yet fit for kings.
Purchased in January 2018.
I have been wanting this for so long but it was pricey. I finally got it as a present and love it. The retro style adds a cool touch to my kitchen and the functionality is excellent

I always wanted it
I finally moved into my new apartment and i just bought my new kettle! I always wanted it for my kitchen, it looks so classy, and i think no other brand beats it. I AM being extremely careful with the surface as i am afraid it may scratch. The button is soft and no sound but yesterday i noticed it popped open when i needed another new pot of water when the kettle is so hot, no sure if its designed that way, will keep an eye on it
Not the best actually
Nice style and good finish. Like the press down button to operate lid opening. No hot steam from round the handle when pouring it after boiling. Good size. Sometimes the water tastes a bit of plastic, but they may go with repeated use
Purchased in October 2018 for $150.00.
Little disappointed but still like it
Love the retro shape and matches well with the retro toaster also Smeg, find it a little heavier than our previous one also the silicone pads seem to dislodge easily,we are on our second one after 6 months losing pads and slow boil cut off reaction no problem exchanging atHarvey Norman.
Love it / looks good / perfect visually.
Great taste day one
Easy to fill.
It is heavy to lift though.
It can pour a little clumsily.
Looks great with the matching toaster.
The pastel colours are great, green and pink were my 2nd and 3rd choice.
Looks great, sturdy, beautiful to display on counter
Was in the market for a new kettle after having a Variable kettle. I wanted a kettle which not only looked lovely sitting on my kitchen bench but also matched my black kitchenaid. I came across this Smeg kettle which matched perfectly.
It is a later model so doesn't have the issue of peeling letters (which I had read about when doing my research). The letters on the kettle are made of metal on this model.
When you turn the kettle on, it has a little blue light behind the lever telling you its on and is boiling. Boils quite fast and not ...too loudly. Its simple to use. Its a slightly heavier kettle than my last one but its mainly because of the solid build. Feels sturdy in the hand and its just beautiful. The only thing about having a black kettle is that you need to 'dust' it occasionally as you can see dust easier than having a silver/whilte one for example.
Time will tell
I have just purchased this kettle and it appears all great. I saw with similar products (different colours) there were some complaints of fading and other small issues over time but it seems that also the after purchase customer service is excellent; at least from the comments. I will look forward to seeing how it holds up over time which is often what you really want to know when getting more expensive appliances and will report back (if memory holds).
Klf03pBAU great kettle
I bought the kettle and matching two slice toaster, I was looking at Morphy Richards scandi, but they were too big. I’m happy with this kettle though. It looks great, heats water quickly, doesn’t get hot on the outside. Not a problem for me, but it is a heavy kettle even without water. The level indicator get condensation on it after boiling but I can’t see how that would be avoided with ANY kettle. But it works well, doesn’t leak, waters doesn’t taste funny.
