Rated 4 out of 5 by LizGB Works well
Kettle works well, and seems efficient. The only down side I have is that the filter in the spout keeps falling out.

Kettle works well and does what it is supposed to do BUT water level when filling is difficult to read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rosmarin Trouble free so far .....
We've not had a lot of luck with kettles in recent years, regardless of the prices paid. There have been drippy or splashy spouts, too heavy for our declining strength, leaky water level indicators, and, worst of all, imparting an overwhelming horrible plastic taste to the water that has just been boiled.
This very reasonably priced kettle has exhibited NONE of these faults so far - I've had it about six weeks. The water level indicator is under the handle, so possibly a bit awkward for anyone with poor sight, but it is very narrow so that there is very little plastic in contact with the water. My only reservation is that I'd have preferred a brushed rather than polished finish, but at this price I'm certainly not complaining.

Rated 2 out of 5 by focus360 Breville Kettle
Bought my kettle just a few weeks ago, and was extremely pleased until the other day when, for the first time I took out the filter to wash. I just couldn't put it back, my hands got quite scratched trying to put it back from inside the kettle as the opening is very small and lid does not fully open up.
I even tried to find advise on google and You Tube only to find even more frustrated people having the same problem.
My two main frustrations I have are:
1) re-inserting the filter should be simple but it is not and is a ridiculously difficult task.
2) The instruction leaflet is totally useless on this point. Barely a mention on reinserting the filter, if there was a particular technique, its not mentioned
Until the other day I was extremely pleased with my purchase. It looked and felt well engineered for the price. The reality is not so true. If you "never" take out the filter you should be ok with this kettle. Without this filter problem, I would have rated this a 4 and not a 2 star product.
This is simple product made unnecessarily (and thoughtlessly) difficult by this issue. John Lewis I hope you take this up with Breville.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Stdons Very quick to boil
Only one problem the filter in the spout keeps falling out.Given up putting it back because it falls out after only being used a few times.
