The practical features are numerous. The most notable is definitely how quickly the kettle boils water. The 3kW heating element really brings down the boil time. Other features include the removable limescale filter, the convenient water window, the 360 degree base and the safety oriented boil dry protection.

Specification

We now take a look at the features.

  • Capacity - 1.7 Litres, which is around 6 cups, or possibly 7 depending on the size. 1.7L is fairly standard. Most kettles are either 1.7L or 1.5L. This kettle suits large families perfectly.
  • Dimensions - 21cm x 15cm x 24cm.
  • Rapid Boil - A concealed 3kW heating element allows the kettle to boil water fast.
  • Limescale Filter - The kettle comes with a pre-installed limescale filter in the spout. It can be slotted in and out, so cleaning is no problem. It prevents limescale from entering your cup, making your drinks look and taste better.
  • Push Button Lid - The lid is controlled by a large push button on the kettle's handle. It's in perfect reach of your thumb when the kettle's handle is being held. Pressing the button will open a hinged lid to allow for filling.
  • 360 Degree Base - The kettle is cordless and boils via a base. The 360 degree nature of this base means the kettle can be easily taken off the base and placed back on it.
  • Boil Dry Protection - The kettle is protected by a safety mechanism which prevents it from boiling with no water in.
