Stylish and Great quality
This is a wonderful electric kettle of Smeg. Very functional and I love the style! Does a great job, when makes an awesome cup of tea and boil water, water and tea comes out smoothly even at the highest setting. If you like a decorative stuff as well as multi-purpose gadget at your kitchen area, it must a good choice.

Expected something a lot better
A lot of money to boil water. It looks great. And that's when the designers packed up and went home. At $200 I expected quiet operation. It's not loud but no different than my previous $60 kettle. When your pouring the boiled water, steam comes back on your hand and it's not comfortable. Wouldn't that be the number one design no no? The water level indicator is on the back of the kettle in line with the handle so when your filling it, and holding that handle, it's not easy to see what level you're at. It looks good though.

Lovely to look at but very heavy!
Lovely, simple & functional. The only downside is the weight, even completely empty it’s very heavy! Lifting it full actually requires 2 hands, the few people who have lifted it recently at my place have said the same. I just don’t understand why it’s sooooo heavy hahaha
Great product but noisy and heavy
Love this kettle. It looks great and does as designed. The only issue I have found is that it is very heavy. Much heavier than my old breville kettle. Wouldn’t recommend to anyone with weak wrists. it’s also a bit louder than our previous kettle but not that big a deal.
In general happy with the kettles performance.
Kettle is not made of a high quality. Laminate has bubbled up!
The kettle isn’t too bad to use but within a few months we noticed that the laminate on the kettle began to form a bubble. It looks really ugly and to be honest from a good brand like smeg, we didn’t expect it to happen.
My favourite kitchen appliance
I get so many comments on this beautiful kettle that I bought the toaster too. Happy I paid the extra for the SMEG brand, and hope to keep adding to my range.

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
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).
