I bought this item for an elderly 90 year old neighbour, he is delighted with it, the ratings are his.James Gilland
Ideal for 1-2 cups of tea. Doesn't take up too much space on the kitchen workspace. Very pleased.VeeJay
I bought this as a birthday present for a blind friend who needed a new kettle. he was using a very small camping kettle that took forever to boil. 1ltr kettles are scarce in the shops and Amazon came up with goods! It is a nice looking kettle and easy to keep clean. He can pour in a mug of water without it spilling - he has his methods. It is light weight and had a good sized handle for better and safer grip.He told me that by the time he had put the coffee/tea in a mug and got the milk out of the fridge, the kettle has boiled. Which according to the description, it will boil a cup of water in 55 seconds. That is pretty quick.My friend is very happy with his kettle.Sarah Cat1
Excellent kettle. Lightweight. Quick to boil. Easy to clean.Jojo
I like this kettle as its small but holds enough water for most kitchen purposes. I also like the markers inside that tell you how many cups of water you have in it.John Midgley
Bought for my elderly Mum who loves it. So light to use and fast to boil! Looks great and cuteBee
This small kettle is perfect for one or two people. It isn’t too heavy and I just love itLucy
Perfect small kettle for my Mum. Not too heavy to lift with water in. Would recommend.Di
Great small kettle.Dmitry Yurin
This is a useful small kettle, which heats up quickly. My one criticism of it is that the light which indicates that the kettle is on is small and hard to see unless the room as a whole is dark.daveyp.
Brilliant little kettle easy to use when you have painful hands. Easy to judge how much water to use , really pleased with it . Personally far better than a big kettle.Diane Sisson
Bought it for my elderly mum who loves her independence! Old kettle was just too heavy and she often overfilled it. This is small but fine for 1-4 good size cups, so plenty for her. Handy red level markers inside too to show how full you want it to be. Light enough not to strain her wrist. Been a few weeks now and its just perfect! No complaints at all.bradswithit
I am very happy with my purchase! I needed something small just to make a cup or two of coffee at a time and I didn't want a full size kettle taking up so much space on my counter either.Tiffany
Use this in our bedroom for early morning cuppa.Great quality and boils very fast.mike49
The kettle is the ideal size and weight for an elderly user. It works well. The problem is that the on/off switch does not stay down in the on position and when the kettle has boiled there is no click to say it is ready. The light which indicates whether it is on is very small and my mother cannot see it. This would be perfect if the switch stayed down until the kettle boiled (like every other kettle I had owned).MarjB
Bought for my elderly mother who was struggling to lift her standard sized kettle. This is ideal for her, big enough for most purposes but lightweight and easier to manage. Switch might feel a bit flimsy to some people, but it's still holding its own after many months of use.Mrs E R Roarty
Just the right size and the cup markers make kettle water/electricity wastage a thing of the past.J.D. B.
Really dissapointed with this kettle. Not had it for 6 months yet and it keeps blowing the fuse in the plug when I use it. I almost each time. I would have expected a 12 month guarantee but it appears that only 1 month is available from this sellerS N.
filter fell off and won't stay in, hard to find replacement, bought July last yearFiona
Excellent product for making small amounts. I struggled to find a 1 litre quality kettle, (the last one I found was plastic and the tea tasted of plastic) this one is excellent. This is small, quality, lightweight to hold. It is also by a brand I have heard of so hopefully will last. inside the kettle on the side is a measuring guide to filling it for one, two or 3 cups.It is for a retired person and is exactly what I needed, same day prime delivery was fantastic, the person could not believe that was possible.jannn
