It is easy to just boil what you want and no more – even a single cup. It is good to have the 80 and 90 degree settings too. Easy to fill and easy to boil the whole kettle when required.
Slightly on the heavy side when full of water but you do not need to fill it up to the top eco saves money yes it does great invention.
Having had the previous version of this kettle knew ‘mostly’ what to expect so unlike other reviewers i/we were not troubled by the weight or the operating method (open lid/fill/close lid/press plunger etc). We have yet to find out if the three temperature settings will actually save any money over the previous ‘just boil’ model but for now it gives us the unconfirmed feeling that we are. What we like is the ability to fill just the amount required and not having to go to the tap each time as one would with a normal ‘graduated kettle’ and faff about looking at the level or using a jug to fill the amount required. Just press the plunger whilst looking at the reservoir window and it is easy. Well unfortunately there is. Because it may be the result of steam escaping to unwanted places. I have not pinpointed the exact source of the leak?.But whatever/wherever it is there is a very small amount of water managing to escape onto the base unit.

“Eco? possibly. Functional?certainly., The chrome effect on “plastic” is not a durable finish but the “plastic” body makes the kettle light weight and easy to handle p, Excellent energy saving device., Energy Saving Kettle”
The chrome effect on ‘plastic’ is not a durable finish but the ‘plastic’ body makes the kettle light weight and easy to handle p. Has a few snags, this is my second kettle of this design. The first one failed much earlier than any of our previous conventional kettles one of which lasted nearly 20 years. The chrome effect on ‘plastic’ is not a durable finish but the ‘plastic’ body makes the kettle light weight and easy to handle particularly if one has arthritic hands. On both kettles we found the scale filter difficult to remove to clean, this one seems wedged in tight. You will need to be well up on cleaning if you want to keep it looking smart. On the plus side being able to set three levels of water temp is an absolute bonus 80-90-boiling. So if you want a tea cup of boiling water or a cup at a lower temp for herb teas this kettle is a must have. If you want a large amount of boiling water put a sauce pan on the cooker hob.We must have liked it to have bought a second one.
Really good kettle was cheaper than ebay and does exactly what it saysthe good thing about it is that u can fill the kettle up and just put the right amount of water in .
Excellent energy saving device. . This is brilliant for only heating the amount of water for how many cups you want from 1- 7. It makes the perfect tea, coffee and more delicate teas taste better when they are infused by the correct heated water.
