Advantages Doesn't take long to heat up and makes a good cuppa
Disadvantages If the wire underneath moves it can suddenly stop heating up

|Value for money|
I've had this kettle for about 2 years now and I feel I've had it long enough to review it now. It takes 1.7L of water and I'm yet to have a bad cup of tea out of it (unless it's just been cleaned and I haven't rinsed it properly....yuck!) which I think is pretty good going.
It's very easy to use, just open the lid, put the water and click the switch and you're away (obviously make sure it's plugged in first ;)). However in the past few months we have had an issue the cable underneath can sometimes stop it heating up and it gets a bit 'jumpy' when heating up, so we now have to keep an eye on it and occasionally hold it down.
The manual is pretty short, but as it doesn't have any special functions this is to be expected. It came with a 2 year warranty; unfortunately we started having problems after the warranty was up! The instructions are easy to follow but there's nothing special about it, it read almost exactly the same as my first kettle which was an Argos cheapie.
It is fairly safe to use, however it's not the safest one out there given the problem concerning the wire. I forgot to warn my partner about it being temperamental and he managed to burn his finger while checking it over to try and find the problem and it suddenly started heating up again. He's now wary of making me a cuppa! I wouldn't say it is unsafe but as with all electrical appliances you do need to be careful, especially if it starts being temperamental.
Would I recommend? No, purely because it is expensive for what it is and I don't think it is worth that.
