We bought our Phillips kettle at a local auction, which has the only licence for electrical goods in our part of the country, at half price with a full guarantee. so it was a real bargain as it was the exact same one we were planning on buying in the shops at full price, which was around £50 at the time, but we found it would have been a good buy even if we had paid the full price. Prices have gone down at the moment, because of similiar designs from other makes.
Even after nearly 4 years in a hard water area, the filter has held out, only now just starting to show signs of wear. The inside is still looking good, and the outside, with it's appealing round design still looks fairly smart (apart from the odd dent off course).
The only problem i have found is you have to be careful not to over fill it, as i used to when making up baby feeds, because of the shape/design if you do when the water boils some may run down the sides into the base and will trip out the fuse (I did this twice, stupidly in too much of a hurry), and fair play to Phillips, no permanent damage was done to the base.
Though i certainly don't recommend trying this at home!!
As we tend to drink a lot of coffee in this house, the overall condition is still extremely very good. Though other makes may look as good when new, i think from experience that this is probably superior to similiar makes/models in and around the same price range.
Hi. Please can you give me some feedback on why you gave my opinion only a FH. I felt I had written an informative, detailed opinion, giving all the information I could and that would be required by the potential user, written in clear English. If you can think of information which was required to make it a VH please let me know. If it was because you felt it was in the wrong category and thereofre not helpful then please let me know this in the comments section so I know the rating is not a reflection on my writing, just on ciao not providing suitable categories. I hope you do not feel I am being aggressive as that is not how I intend this comment to sound. All I would like is some feedback so I can improve my writing style. Vicky
