I spent £130 on a kettle expecting it to be well made and designed. I am very disappointed! The base seems to be made out of very cheap plastic. In fact it looks like the same plastic my son's toy sword (which he won on a hook a duck at fun fair) is made of. The kettle does not fit snugly on the base and actually moves around when full of water and the kettle is boiling. The kettle is so heavy that when full of water my wife has to use two hands to lift it and struggles to pour from it at all (so I guess I will be making the tea from now on). Added to this the water fill gauge is located under the handle which means you cant actually tell if you have over filled the kettle until you put it down. Our previous £25 Bosch kettle may have been all plastic but in many ways seem far superior. This is a true example of design over practicality and substance. I will never buy Smeg ever again!Michael Cassidy
Works and looks greatAndy P
Cracking kettle that does the job nicely. You can get a much cheaper kettle with good looks and efficiency, but sometimes a little extravagence can be justified. The kettle looks great with the toaster. Retro Italian design at its best. I only hope it stands the test of time otherwise it's back to Asda's best!agipdog

Lovely kettle but broke after 4 months.Miss OGrady
First I bought the toaster then this matching kettle. They really do look great together.The kettle is solid with the quality feel one expects with Smeg products. It boils quickly and the automatic switch of works efficiently.A bit expensive, but what the heck ...........it's worth it.Alexander Bryce

It’s a great very stylish kettle which looks very cool in our kitchen so gets 5 stars for looks. On the whole it works well. It boils fast, is relatively quiet, and pours without dripping. However there are three areas that let it down. 1. It’s way too heavy 2. The handle is disappointingly plastic and a different colour and finish from the lovely stainless steel body. 3. The seal around the back of the lid where the hinge is is very poor and when it boils steam pours out at the rear of the lid and can scald your hand if you hold it high up the handle. This is a design problem and for a kettle of this cost it’s rather suprising that this made it through product testingAmazon Customer
Great kettle, looks lovely, and well built. Minor gripe is water gauge is next to useless, as condensation builds in inside, so view of water level is badly impairedApart from that, good buydarren

Best looking kettle. Quick boiling and matches my toasterl robertson
Very good item, is a bit on the heavy side but well worth a buy. Did have a few problems with the first kettle, but contacted Smeg for a replacement and they replaced it fast 1st class service by Smeg. Would buy a Smeg item againQADIR
Boil up to 7 cups at once with this stylish, retro-inspired 1.7 litre stainless steel kettle, available in a choice of 7 colours. 3kW of power provides a quick and efficient operation, while the removable, washable stainless steel filter allows for easy cleaning after use. A 360 degree swivel base makes the kettle suitable for right or left handed users, while anti-slip feet provide added stability on the countertop and a water level indicator lets you easily assess when it is time for a refill. The kettle is complete with an auto shut-off feature, which turns it off when the water reaches 100 degrees, for added safety.
