Over clever design and pricey
My wife bought this kettle mainly because it looked good, even though it’s over priced. Some clever designer decided that you can’t open the Smeg kettle if it is still hot, therefore if there’s not enough water to boil up enough for another round, you have to empty the kettle or wait until it cools down. Another example of an over zealous safety conscious society.

Pretty to look at but not so functional
I was forced to replace my much loved Kenwood kettle and unable to replace with same, so I selected the pretty SMEG to provide some style to my kitchen with a “premium appliance”. On first operation there were a few small issues which had been identified in previous reviews such as the weight of the kettle and the general plastic nature of the build. I can live with these issues however, I cannot stand the continued metallic taste of the water. No matter how many times I empty the kettle and/or do a vinegar clean the metallic taste returns. ...I have had similar issues in the past with cheap kettles, but never with a quality kettle such as Kenwood, Russell Hobbs etc. Another small but annoying issue is the small stream of water which leaks from the open lid after pouring a full kettle into my bucket and then opening for a refill. Yes I can wipe it away but I shouldn’t have to. I had to talk my husband into the additional cost for this kettle and now he justifiably shakes his head every time the metallic taste returns.

I want to thank Smug for their quick and efficient response to replacement of my kettle. I do appreciate this service and the support I received.
I had been very disappointed in the initial kettles leakage problems and explained this through Product Review. A timely response by Smeg was appreciated and a replacement sent out quickly.

Very Stylish Kettle
I bought the pastel blue SMEG kettle and I am very happy with my purchase. It is great quality and looks lux in my kitchen. It is on the more expensive side for a kettle but you can tell it’s made well.

Have loved everything about this kettle
Purchased a kettle in October 2018 and have loved everything about it. Unfortunately, however, it has been leaking for a few weeks.
Within hours of posting my review I received an email from the national manager of SMEG requesting a few details. The following day I was then phoned by a lovely administrative assistant to confirm my contact details and had a replacement kettle on my doorstep three days later. I am extremely happy with this outcome. Such great service and customer care. Thank you to all involved.

Great kettle for a while but has started leaking
Loved this kettle when we bought it, but it has started leaking from the bottom after only a few years of use. Doesn’t seem to compare at all in quality to the Breville we had previously which was still going strong after 7 or 8 years. Disappointing for the price.
Purchased at Harvey Norman.
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

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.
