     Looks lovely. Just a shame there’s no automatic switch off once the water has boiled

    Had my last RH kettle for 13 years before the lid hinge cracked. It actually still works and is being used on a building site now. Hence I bought the same brand again. This one seems well built, nice switch, books fast and looks great. The brushed stainless steel will show marks but I guess I have to clean it more often.

    Plastic taste when new only very short lasting. Works ok, looks a bit old fashioned. Easy to fill and pours well.

    This is an excellent and thoughtfully-designed kettle. It seems like the sort of appliance which is the result of a long evolutionary process of improvements to make it safer and easier to use. It seems to have been designed from the inside out by experienced people, rather than being something designed to look good but that falls short in practice.

    The centre-coupled base is solid and stays in place when lifting the kettle up and down, and the kettle slots into the connector with effortless ease, and from any angle, every time I put it on. This has not always been my experience with other kettles. The kettle feels solid and well-balanced whether empty or full. The handle is substantial and has a nice grip for me – full-sized man with large hands.

    Some features which stand out are: the pouring spout gives a really nice and accurate flow of boiling water. Never any spills. It also seems to have a safety feature in that no matter if you tip the kettle all the way over while pouring, the amount of water that comes out is always the same. I’ve had kettles that splash the water our too quickly if you’re not careful: this one is very safe in this respect. It would be good for people with shaky hands for this reason. The lid pops up very nicely: wide open for filling, and then when you go to put the lid back down, the centre of the lid is a plastic disc, so if you’re filling multiple kettles, the metal lid will not burn you when you close it after subsequent fillings.

    The on switch is a broad illuminated and textured tab at the base of the handle. I find I’ve occasionally switched it on inadvertently when wiping the countertop, but you see the light go on and it’s easy just to flick it back up. It’s a good size switch and has a reassuring click on and click off. Probably people with vision impairment would like that big switch. Nice.

    You can relatively easily see the level via the plastic window on the side. Also there are three red tabs inside the kettle so you can precisely measure out just one single cup if you want to save on electricity.

    It heats up very fast. It’s noisy at first but after the water starts to get hot it quietens down. I don’t mind the noise. I like a noisy kettle. Sounds reassuring. (At least you are never in any doubt that it’s on.)

    Some reviews have mentioned a label that leaves a mark on the stainless steel after being pulled off. I had the label, it left the mark, but after a few days of use (perhaps the heat helped) and a few very casual wipes with some bog standard supermarket kitchen spray on a microfibre cloth, the label mark isn’t there at all. I didn’t even have to put any effort into removing it. (And I detest label marks so would have been the person to spend all night trying to get it off.)

    There’s a little filter in the spout for calcium etc. deposits. I live in London and the water is full of that stuff, so the filter is starting to get cloudy. I can see there’s a convenient thumb tab to remove it. Doubtless it would be clear again after spending the night in a shot glass of vinegar.

    Our previous kettle was one of those ubiquitous white plastic ones. It was rubbish. I’m glad it died, because this one is just great. I would not change a thing about this kettle.
