Bugatti Vera Kettle
Stunning Designer Kettle with a few issues
I absolutely love the design of this kettle and creates a complimentary conversation on its style every time someone new enters my kitchen.
It has played up on numerous occasions resulting in having to reset it like other reviewers have mentioned.
However the style of this kettle stops me from returning it, it is so authentic and a statement piece.
It is very expensive for a kettle, my reasons for also purchasing an Alessi stove top kettle so save having to use the Bagatti as often.
Boils very quickly and very quiet too.
I have given 3 stars more so for its designer look than it's actual practical use.

Lovely looker, Pants at boiling!
This kettle is the most unreliable kettle I have ever owned. It needs rebooting more often than my Windows phone! Honestly, since we took it out of the box it has been nothng but trouble, About 30% of the time you hit the button to boil and it sits there doing nothing... and then when it does start to boil (it is very quiet), about 60% of the time it will then stop at random temperatures.. it may be 40deg or 50deg or 80deg... and when it does stop, you then have to reset it using a fiddly lillte reset "pin hole" on the inside of the handle.
It has now complletely failed... all the lights and LEDs have gone out and this is now a dead kettle.
This kettle is being sold at a premium price and for that amount of money you would expect a quality product. I have given 1 star for "poor quality and poor value"
I could not recommend this Kettle to anyone who actually wants to make a cup of tea once or twice a day!

Worst kettle ever!
Both myself and my mother bought this kettle and have both had nothing but problems with them since the word go! The writing on the power button rubbed off after just a months use, every time you fill the kettle it resets itself to factory settings. And finally, the boil function won't turn itself off so the only way to stop it boiling is to turn the power off at the mains and keep it turned off until you need to use it again. Considering how expensive this kettle is I would advise you to save your pennies and buy a cheaper more reliable kettle! I've only given it 1 star as I had to put at least one star but if I had the option it would get zero stars!

A real statement piece,for looks nothing comes close. The temperature display means i can get the right level for different teas, coffee and even lemsip! Always gets comments from guests and no problems in the 12 months I've had it

Do not waste your money
This kettle is very nice if only it was reliable,
We have now had 2 both have broken for different reasons and have been sent to the repair shop 2 times each some of which have been within the warranty and some not, 1st one was only purchased
Less than 3 years ago.
There is only 1 repair shop in the country that can fix these kettles and any repair is a full refurb as Bugatti
do not sell any spares,this repair is a staggering wait for it £110 so have now thrown both of mine in the bin and wrote them off as a overpriced waste of money only wish i could of read my own review before we bought them
