Stylish but poor design
The design lines you up for a steam burn unless you overfill it. So if I want just one cup of tea, I only need the minimum BUT if I do this I have to almost invert the jug to get enough boiling water out to fill my cup. On the other hand when I overfill it, almost needs half a jug, it takes a lot longer, uses more electricity but I am able to get the water in my cup bu holding it just beyond the vertical and the steam safely away from my hands etc. So. Not as good as my $29 Sunbeam jug which looks ordinary but is much more efficient. Anyhow, my wife likes the colour.
Unreliable costly Sunbeam Kettle.
Bought kettle / toaster combo from JB HI-FI for its good looks and also for the fact of Sunbeam having a supposed good name. I also bought the same combo for my son as a new home present. The kettle is just out of warranty and now turns itself off and on for no apparent reason. At this stage it manages to boil but the stoppages are more frequent. I have read in another review that this is a problem so i would not recommend this product.
Its a fashion statement...
The other half purchased it from Myer as we needed a new kettle. Obviously the glitz and glamour of the colour range etc caught her attention. $129 is a bit stiff for something that boils water.....
It looks nice in the kitchen, it boils water and serves it purpose. I do like the White LED indicator to show when its boiling away .
