The red coating flakes off after 5 months of use.
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Although I bought this kettle in 2015, it has had in total about 5 months use.The red coating, which is lovely to begin with is now flaking off.This kettle has had normal use, i.e. it has not been bashed or knocked.

A quiet boiler, easy to use and the inside has little plastic levels that means you haven’t got to guess how much water u need for a single cup. Brilliant

Purchased this as a replacement and to match the colour of our other kitchen electricals.Works well but the design does not balance very well, otherwise would have got 5 stars.

Liked this heritage range also have toaster. Unfortunately the lid on the kettle has broken twice in 18 months was able to return the first time but 2nd time not able to have a replacement. Obviously a serious design fault do not buy. This was not a cheap kettle should have lasted longer.

Best kettle I've purchased
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Very atractive finish, with wide spout for filling. Fast boil with 3Kw power. Looks as though it will be very durable.

Happy shape! Makes me feel happy when I see it!
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

I recently bought 2 kettles, the RH Luna and this one. Both are fantastic. Both have a positive switch and pour well and look great. However, something to point out - due to its rounder shape, the legacy kettle does not fit as well in the middle of a straight work top, it definitely suits a corner position more. That point made, I personally love holding and looking at this kettle shape so have kept it for our holiday home where it sits in the corner of a small worktop in a cottage type kitchen.

Nice Kettle from good manufacturer

It does boil quickly and you can pour straight away due to good design. No spitting water from a daft spout. Good range of colours
