Poor Quality

1/5
The letters came off after 6 months as theyre stuck on, and now after just over a year it's stopped working. Very expensive for what it is

Letters are just stuck on - whilst giving it a clean I lost the G. Looks great but would be better if the letters were more robust and fixed on like the toaster.

Very heavy when lifting and takes a long time to reach boiling point, very expensive for what it is.

Nice kettle, poor quality base and handle

3/5
Although the body of the kettle is nice, I was really disappointed with the quality of the kettle base and the kettle handle which were made of plastic sprayed silver. I just know this is going to either quickly scratch or lose the silver colour quickly which is not good enough for a kettle that is in the higher price bracket. ??

Great if like me you’re materialistic.

3/5
Lets start with the pro’s. It’s says smeg and looks great on the kitchen worktop. It boils the water and pours without causing any spills via its stainless steel spout....and that’s about it. The con’s. When boiling it sounds like a small jumbo jet taking off so it’s noisy. The stainless steel body gets very hot and when holding water is very heavy so those with mobility issues will find this kettle difficult to use. The silver base is made from plastic and is horrible when viewed up close. Our first kettle rocked on its base when it first began to boil and after just two days we noticed that the paint had begun to bubble on the plastic lid. That said, Smeg replaced the kettle within days so their warranty works. We have other Smeg items so this kettle looks great alongside them but if I wasn’t so materialistic then I wouldn’t go anywhere near this kettle.

Style Over Substance

1/5
The kettle looks very stylish and does its one and only job and boils water. Other than that it's pretty poor. I the first kettle I received, I had to return because the lid wouldn't open properly when the button was pressed. The second one was a bit better but still needs a good hard pressing to get the lid open. When you lift the kettle you can hear the cheap plastic handle creaking. I would expect amazing high quality when spending £109 on a kettle but this kettle feels cheap and I doubt will last.

Quality Kettle

5/5
Yes I know it's JUST a kettle! BUT it looks great, it's quiet and it feels great quality too. I ummmed and ahhhed for ages because how on earth can I justify £120 for a kettle!!! .....and you know what I decided I'm worth it and I'm glad I did because it just feels good to use! PS him indoors has no idea though ??

Lid

4/5
Just purchased the Smeg kettle and although I am delighted Hayes with it. Iam finding th lid doesn’t open on the first press of the button. It takes at least two or three times
