Good points:
my wife has damaged hands, and finds this traditional kettle very easy to pick up. Like traditional look, and quiet boil
Bad points:
Bought one before, and started leaking after only 18 mths. Also, quiet boil only lasted about 6 mths. Like the kettel, so giving it one more try

Good points:
stylish
Bad points:
Bought this kettle 2 years ago and up to recently was very happy. The lid is difficult to remove and there is a tendency to over fill. This is for a domestic use. However 2 weeks ago the kettle started to leak around the base of the filling gauge running over the on switch. The water was running out when cold flooding my work surface. I contacted by email manufactures customer advice centre explaining what had happened. Knowing that it was out of warranty I requested help and advise so that I could get the kettle working again. They asked for the kettle to be sent back at my cost so that an engineer could examine it and only then would they give me advise. We came to the conclusion that it would be unlikely that we would receive an unbias report so decided to look at it ourselves. In conclusion, although the rubber seal under the plastic gauge was integral the plastic of the gauge was brittle and we believe it was leaking from this point. We have managed to mend it by using specialized silicone sealant. We also noticed that the on off switch was showing signs of stress damage (cracking).
