Sleek, slightly ‘retro’ styling and stainless good looks attracted me to this particular kettle. The fact that it is cordless and easy to use was an added bonus. Unlike some cordless kettles, where you have to boil a fair amount of water to cover the element, the Phillips Filterline...

“Sparkling cordless kettle.”

Attractive stainless steel.

Slower than some of the modern kettles.

This kettle is a well made example as expected from a maker such as Philips. I bought it many years ago for around the £40 mark if i remember correctly.

This is now an old kettle so you probably wont find one for sale. Your best bet is to try and get a second hand one through a site such as Ebay. Hope this helps.
