Review and Buying Guide of Philips HD9340/90 Glass Kettle

This philips kettle arrives very well packaged and is contemporary and attractive searching in black, brushed chrome with a glass physique. At initially i was obtaining that i was not filling it sufficiently for my desires being employed to a one. 7 litre kettle, this currently being a 1. 5, but soon after a number of days i obtained the hold of it. It manufactured me realise how a great deal i have been more than-filling a larger sized kettle for just two men and women and really feel absolutely sure that this a person will establish to be both equally drinking water and electrical energy efficient. It boils reasonably rapidly, not as quickly as a larger wattage a person, this being a two. 2 watts, and just isn’t much too noisy possibly. A button on the top rated flips the lid for quick filling and the spout is relatively huge and pours nicely with no dripping. All round, it is a pretty kettle and i am pretty pleased with it.

A flat bottom is the best for hard h2o. . I stay in a difficult drinking water region and so i struggle to find a kettle that can deal with the calcium construct up. What can make this kettle distinctive is the beautifully flat bottom hiding the aspect. Mainly because it is completely clean this makes it substantially more challenging for the calcium to construct up and tends to make it considerably simpler to clean up. The kettle is also elegant in glass although i often truly feel a very little nervous when i refill it right after a short while ago boiling drinking water as i fear about it cracking. There have been no challenges so far. My just one quibble is that it talks about a filter for tough h2o and so i was imagining along the strains of a little something like brita filtered water, but what it means is a filter in the spout to get out the calcium develop up. This is high-quality but then you have flakes that you have to swill out by the lid to get the kettle clean. That is why i only gave it 4 stars and not 5.

This is a attractive on the lookout kettle. It is really fashionable and would glimpse very good in a modern day shiny kitchen area (i don’t have the modern shiny kitchen, but i do have the kettle. The lid is simple to open up and near and the filter is easy to get in and out for cleaning. 5 litres which is pretty ample for my requires. I appreciate looking at the drinking water starting to boil, and it is a little bit of an instructional process for my kids to observe. It boils quite speedily and it is not way too noisy.

Comments from buyers

“Watch that limescale dance!, Good Looking, Stylish and most importantly Works Well, A genuinly superior kettle, Good looking kettle with double filter and wide neck for filling, Quick, silent and beautiful, Attractive and well-made”

A excellent hunting, ground breaking and productive boiling kettle which is quite safe and sound to use. . The strategy of boiling h2o in a kettle built of glass is fairly astonishing and a little complicated at first, but when it is understood the glass is the pyrex-form toughened glass that in no way breaks or deteriorates, then just one will become reassured. In actuality it is a delight to watch the very small bubbles of steam form at the foundation and rise upwards in countless filigree streams. As the bubbles get to boiling stage they turn out to be rather turbulent, practically violent, but there is no threat of steam escape considering the fact that the lid seals tightly with a rubber ring and is firmly held by a basic safety capture. The kettle could be knocked above and minimal water would escape, and then only by way of the spout… a clever layout. No risk of scalding steam escaping by way of the lid. The obvious glass permits a single to notice when the drinking water is having near to boiling issue, and all those connoisseurs who prefer to make tea and espresso with h2o that is approaching boiling place, or promptly it is boiled, for a superior and fresher taste… can do so with this kettle, but would not uncover that so easy with an opaque plastic kettle. There is a printed scale in steps of litres and cups on both sides of the glass, enabling just one to boil only the precise amount of h2o essential, the amount of cups expected, and no a lot more. This saves equally time and vitality. The scale is printed on the exterior glass in a form of white paint, which may well rub off over time?.

Speedy and economical, no plastic bits. I have it for a 7 days now and i’m pretty satisfied with that kettle. It boils up really quickly, especially when getting ready just 1 cup of tea. I come to feel it boils even more rapidly than with my saucepan. The inside is smooth, manufactured of glass and steel, so no plastic bits (other than for the lid). When boiling, there is certainly no dripping close to, it pours cleanly. As it is produced of glass, you can see the limescale setting up up on the base, but a couple vinegar and in it and it is really long gone.

This is a fantastic kettle, which came as a welcome shock next a 12 months exactly where we have tried various kettles with disappointing effects. Most notably, there was a russell hobbs, all excellent appears to be like and flimsy make and a smeg, which had been recommended but which experienced to be held just so (and uncomfortably) to prevent staying burnt by steam. This phillips, a manufacturer we hadn’t thought of, bettered them all, with it is great seems to be, which are important in a designer kitchen, and it really is speedy functionality. The best flips up just and rapidly to fill it up and the crystal clear overall body suggests you can see what you are boiling, so no more than-filling, if that’s important to you. The grip is at ease and when you pour, the stream would not strike bare pores and skin – often a good. It can be a kettle, so there is certainly not significantly more to say, but it truly is a incredibly very good a single at a sensible value – the only drawback being it really is a little tiny, so it wouldn’t accommodate a massive family, or a smaller relatives who consume from extremely large mugs.

    Quick and efficient, no plastic bits. I have it for a week now and i’m very happy with that kettle. It boils up very quickly, especially when preparing just one cup of tea. I feel it boils even quicker than with my saucepan. The interior is sleek, made of glass and metal, so no plastic bits (except for the lid). When boiling, there’s no dripping around, it pours cleanly. As it is made of glass, you can see the limescale building up on the bottom, but a few vinegar and in it and it’s gone.

    A smart and stylish finish, coupled with the glass means that looks smaller than it is, and although it’s not a large kettle to begin with, it will certainly do the job for a smallish household. As some other reviewers have commented already, after a while with see-through kettles, limescale becomes a problem and they will start to look a bit grubby, but keep it clean and change the filter regularly and it’ll be fine. Overall, a good kettle, nice design, possibly a bit small but otherwise a solid purchase if you want a nice looking and functional kettle.
    • V. Warrington VINE VOICE says:
      This is a great kettle for the price. This is a decent enough kettle, made mainly from toughened glass. It’s quick to boil, and much quieter than my previous kettle (albeit with less capacity). It would have been really enhanced if it included an led light or two. My only concern would be how the kettle will look over long-term use, especially if you live in a hard water area. I can well imagine the glass becoming stained and fogged over time. Still, this is a great kettle for the price.

    This review is from : Philips HD9340/90 Glass Kettle, 2200 W, 1.5 Litre

    I have been pleased with this kettle overall. How it looks is a matter of opinion of course, but i find it stylish and minimalist with a somewhat industrial look, which would look great in a modern-style kitchen. The handle is easy to grip and the whole kettle feels well-made and solid. The glass looks attractive and despite other kettles having water indicators, i think being able to see the water from all angles does mean you estimate how much you need very accurately. I was a little disappointed in the “two-way filter” – i was hoping “two-way” might mean it filtered the water for taste like a brita kettle, but it just seems to mean it has a fine mesh filter like most kettles and a larger plastic criss-cross filter – i’m not entirely sure of the advantage of that as it seems to me the mesh on its own would do the job. It’s easy to fill and the lid has a release button which is useful but i suppose could be an area where the kettle might fail in future, though it does feel well-made. The spout is quite small, as is the lid opening, so it is very fiddly to empty the kettle entirely. 5 litres but that’s slightly down on 1.

      On first look you might think it is a beaker from a chemistry lab, but you will come to love it. Okay, i have to admit that when i first looked at this kettle i thought “someone used a glass beaker in the chemistry lab to boil the water for their coffee and it gave them ideas. ” but okay, it’s turned out to be a good idea. The clear glass body gives you a proper view of the water so you actually do see how much you put in, and perhaps more importantly, how much is left in it after you have poured out what you want. Having used a variety of other kettles in recent years which made seeing the water level next to impossible or entirely impossible i really do appreciate the difference. Might seem a bit odd, but it can be strangely soothing watching the water boiling through the glass. The anti-calc filter does the job well. So well that i forgot it was there and only remembered when i had another look through the instructions to help me write this review. The power toggle lights up a nice red colour when it is on. Never understood why some kettles have a really piercing blue light, so the red (which reminds me more of heat than blue does) is much more satisfying as an indicator that the power and the heat is on.

        Philips hd9340/90 glass kettle, 2200 w, 1. 5 litre. The philips glass kettle is so stylish. It looks great, works brilliantly – extra fast boil, and is easy to clean (no more waiting for the lime scale to appear in my cup before de-scaling, as we will be able to see the build-up). 360 base, easy release pop-up lid and anti-calc – all great features that are now pretty much standard with modern kettles. It is much easier to boil the correct amount of water, something i can never seem to judge. The price is pretty good, i will be interested to see how long this kettle lasts. I was lucky enough to receive this free of charge through the amazon vine scheme.

    This is a great looking kettle that boils quickly and is surprisingly easy to clean. We live in a hard water area so we use this in conjunction with maxtra-filtered water and find that, into the third week, we have to empty the kettle between boils otherwise it gets scaly. Overall, a lovely kettle – i don’t tire of watching the water boil behind the glass.
    • Charlie-CJ HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER says:
      Looks great, the glass seems solid enough for family use, it isn’t that heavy, and it biols water just fine – we quite like it. A few years ago i was bought an expensive bodum glass teapot for christmas that i really fancied and it didn’t even last until boxing day before the glass cracked and it was in the bin. So i was nervous about this philips glass kettle, even though i got it free to review via amazon vine, but on handling it i’m far more confident that this kettle will last much longer – although as all the family break and chip cups & glasses regularly by hitting our metal kitchen mixer taps, it will still have its work cut out when being filled (at least the waters cold then). Still the kettle’s solid top, handle and base all offer good protection (far better than that bodum tea-pot which was glass everything). First thing everyone said on using it was how great it is to see the water level so easily. And the kettle weight was fine – at 992g empty it’s little heavier than our standard russell hobbs 18278 deluxe stainless steel kettle that weighs in at 913g. Being similarly rated it also boils as fast. It has a reasonable 75cm cable length and the base switch led glows bright red when the kettles on (it doesn’t illuminate the water though). The kettles schott duran borosilicate glass wall is the same as used in laboratory beakers, i. Its got an excellent resistance to thermal shock. Ok the glass will gradually cake up inside with lime-scale as we live in a very hard water area (using a couple of the little stainless steel le’xpress mesh kettle protectors inside will at least reduce the rate of scale build up), but i think it will still look cool even with all that kettle fur. We could use filtered water but we like the hard water for tea and drinks (and it’s supposed to be better for the heart as well) and we can’t be bothered to filter or use bottled water. My only negative with this cool kettle is that i prefer the white version to this black one, and that the nylon mesh filter will be far too flimsy for our hard water (stainless steel would be better, although the mesh filter will be easy to replace). I guess the lid flip-up is a bit less positive than i’d like as well, but overall we love this classy kettles looks, it boils water as good as our other kettles and has a two year warranty (although our russell hobbs kettle has a three year one, and the philips warranty doesn’t cover the schott glass for accidental damage, but you could argue that on ‘fit for purpose’ if it breaks in normal use).

    A flat bottom is the best for hard water. . I live in a hard water area and so i struggle to find a kettle that can deal with the calcium build up. What makes this kettle different is the perfectly flat bottom hiding the element. Because it is perfectly smooth this makes it much harder for the calcium to build up and makes it much easier to clean. The kettle is also stylish in glass although i always feel a little nervous when i refill it after recently boiling water as i worry about it cracking. There have been no problems so far. My one quibble is that it talks about a filter for hard water and so i was thinking along the lines of something like brita filtered water, but what it means is a filter in the spout to take out the calcium build up. This is fine but then you have flakes that you have to swill out through the lid to get the kettle clean. That is why i only gave it four stars and not 5.

    This philips kettle arrives well packaged and is modern and stylish looking in black, brushed chrome with a glass body. At first i was finding that i wasn’t filling it sufficiently for my needs being used to a 1. 7 litre kettle, this being a 1. 5, but after a few days i got the hang of it. It made me realise how much i have been over-filling a larger kettle for just two people and feel sure that this one will prove to be both water and electricity efficient. It boils fairly rapidly, not as quickly as a higher wattage one, this being a 2. 2 watts, and isn’t too noisy either. A button on the top flips the lid for easy filling and the spout is fairly wide and pours nicely without dripping. Overall, it is a lovely kettle and i’m very pleased with it.

    Design kettle which does the job. . Well designed kettle, which does what is required of it. Easy to fill and it pores well. It looks good with glass see through, where you can see the water coming to the boil. The only down side so far (just under a month) is the glass sides are quickly collecting calcium deposit from the hard water in our area. It does come off easily using a brush, but due to the top opening being smaller than my male hand it’s fiddly.

    This review is from : Philips HD9340/90 Glass Kettle, 2200 W, 1.5 Litre

    Very stylish kettle, performs very well. . This is a very stylish and practical kettle. Not overly large in its capacity but sufficient for my use, with the design also being so different from other kettles i am used to i was very impressed when i received it and removed the packaging. It is very well made with good quality plastic used for the base, handle and top of the kettle (lid) and stainless steel for the top and spout. The spout is of a wider variety than i am used to, i haven’t had any problems with spillages from pouring. The light shines through the switch at the base of the handle when it is on, the lid for filling is opened by the switch at the top of the handle. There is also a calcium filter attached to the spout and this can be removed and cleaned. Because this is a glass kettle and you are not using any other type of fill level indicator as you can see straight through you can actually minimum fill for one cup of water. Filling to the right level is so much easier as this is clear that i have found myself saving more water. The performance of the kettle is good, not overly powerful at 2200w but can boil to the fill line in 4 minutes 36 seconds was my timing on this and for just one cup it takes only 1minute 40 seconds.
    • John E. Davidson says:
      It is wider and squatter than most kettles, certainly every kettle i have owned in the last 20 years. I like the shape – the wide base seemed to shorten boiling time, the clear sides allow a clear picture of how full or empty the kettle actually is and the squatter shape fits well into my kitchen. I only have one problem and to be fair it isn’t entirely a problem with the kettle. I live in an area with extremely hard water and this kettle has confirmed the need for a kettle with a filter.
      • RayG VINE VOICE says:
        Stylish and efficient – and looks cool. This is a really stylish, efficient and comfortable to hold kettle. I really like having the main container made of glass, enabling you to see the water as it boils. It may sound strange, but it’s actually really cool to watch a kettle boil when you can see all the thermals moving around and then eventually turning into bubbles. Naturally, i don’t do this every time i make a cup of tea, but it’s a nice distraction from work every now and then. The kettle itself boils pretty quickly, and being able to see the water so clearly does really does help you judge the amount of water in it. My only criticism, and it really is a small criticism, is that the lid doesn’t open as wide as previous kettles i’ve owned, so you need to be a bit more careful when filling it up. It’s really a compliment to the kettle that this is the only criticism i can think of.
