Heavy but who cares; it’s gorgeous. Only minus point is that steam can escape from under the lid onto your fingers as you tip the pot – but then it’s easier to lift with your finders well down the handle.
Poppy ceramic cordless kettle. I am pleased with my kettle, it’s very pretty. However i will buy another kettle to use when my family are here as this one is a bit heavy (i have arthritis) and as advertised, it holds one litre. I don’t want my grand children to use this precious, pretty kettle. They can use an ‘ordinary’ one. I find it helpful to support the spout with a pot holder when pouring if you have weak hands.
The kettle arrived well packed with no damage to the box or product ,we started using the kettle straight away and found that it boils very quickly,the lid has to be lined up with recesses to remove it so it can be a bit fiddly as there are no marks to show where the slots are,otherwise it is well made and the wife likes it ( which is very important ).

Comments from buyers
“Poppy the alternative Polly put the Kettle on., Bought in 2012. Pretty kettle but not for regular daily use, Ceramic kettlelovely but, Poppy Ceramic cordless kettle, Orbit poppy ceramic kettle, Poppy Tea Kettle”
I adore poppies and hence my initial purchase of my poppy kettle but it is also very quick boiling a little heavy when full but i can manage even with arthritis and i get compliments from visitors and friends.
Came well before the date given well packed but i have not tested it yet as i bought it as a present the person who i giving it to will be very pleased as her last one stopped working(different make and company).
If you want a electric kettle that is good enough for the gentry, look no further. I would not buy any other plastic or metal type as long as one of these ceramic ones were available. And this model is so reasonably priced.
