Wish it wasn't made in China
This was an emergency purchase and if we had a choice we wouldn't have purchased an item from a company that manufactures in China, especially with the trade tensions right now. It is so sad that so many Australian companies have turned their backs on Australian manufacturing out of greed.
That said, it is a kettle. It is fairly solid and a little on the heavy side. The lid doesn't open far enough for easy filling with a mixer style tap and it has no safe spot to shut the plastic lid which can get hot.
Purchased in December 2020 for $68.00.
Was so good now a little worse
We bought our previous Sunbeam Quantum over 5 years ago and use it more than 10 time every day (maybe even 20) and were very happy with it. The spring in the lid finally gave out. The problem is almost all the changes made are not an improvement. The handle does not feel as nice to hold. The switch is in the now popular at the bottom spot (mind you they could have stopped the fact the switch sometimes got steam on it another way I am sure) and this makes the light harder to see. The neck is smaller and it does not poor as well as the old one. N...ot sure the opaque window is better or worse then the old clear one. The open button is not as smooth (this could just as its new and it will get better after a few weeks), hopefully this will mean the spring is better. Still for the price (and if it lasts as long as the old one) it is a great buy. I still recommend it but I just hope sunbeam put a few of the changes back in the newer model we are likely to get next time.
Great price, easy to use!
Great kettle, love the viewing window to take guess work out of water level!
Heats quickly and much quieter than our previous kettle.
Easy to clean - totally reccommend if you want a great kettle at a brilliant price!
