The product looks aesthetically nice in the kitchen (white/chrome mix)
The product feels sturdy and solid
The base is not cheap I find, it is perhaps light in weight, however it has rubber pads on the bottom of the base and it won't move/slide once the kettle is on it, even if pushed with force, so I would say the kettle and base are both solid
Some limescale (calcaire/kalk) will form at the bottom of the kettle, but I don't think it's due to the fabric/design, every where I have lived in Switzerland the water is more or less charged with limestone, so it is inevitable. Time to time we squeeze a bit of lemon juice and add some vinegar with water, let it work on the settle, then bring to a boil and it's all gone, clean like when new.
It is easy to clean as the opening is wide.
Lid is solid and easy to open/close.
I find it boils fast, doesn't make too much noise, the only time it starts making a rumbling noise is when it has limescale, then we know it's time to clean it like described above.
It has a nice blue led on the on/off switch that gives it a nice modern touch.…mehr
