It saves time and makes it easy to make drinks of varying sixes quicker than a kettle. Also it is safer than lifting a heavy kettle. refill lid release being at the back is a bit inconvenient

Great for a cuppa.
Reviewed on Argos.co.uk

This is my second purchase of one of these, the last one lasted me about four or five years which is impressive as we use it a lot. You can adjust the amount of water for different size cups or mugs which is very useful. Easy to use, would highly recommend.

A sage way to hot water
Reviewed on Argos.co.uk

This is the best of the bunch. It gives you the option of filling like a kettle, if needed. Avoids the lifting of a boiling kettle. It makes life easier and safer. Boil the volume of water you need, without excess. Saves energy.

Time saving
Reviewed on Argos.co.uk

I have only just used this for one week and it seems to meet my expectations so far. I do wonder if after many months of use the temperature will decrease/diminish, as there is no temperature adjustment on the unit and we like the tea boiling hot. Time will tell! But I would recommend it as you can walk away and leave your cup to fill.

Great except for filling teapots
Reviewed on Argos.co.uk

I bought this for my Mum, who has trouble lifting a kettle. It's very good except they the distance between the hot water nozzle and the vertical face of the body is quite small, so you can't fill a conventional China teapot. Otherwise it's fine, it seems solid and well made.
