De'Longhi Vintage Icona Kettle
Fast and looks good
I like this range from De'Longhi because it's fits with our kitchen colour and the heating process is fast and is good quality, except that is kinda' noisy. Other than that, I'm quite pleased with it.

This kettle was initially really good and looked great albeit a bit noisy!
However the kettle is 18 months old and the element has died and the husband has put the receipt somewhere so safe that I can't find it!! Typical!!
If I didn't have the matching toaster I wouldn't purchase another one.
Disappointed especially at the price of this!

Beautiful, looks great with the matching items
We have this next to the coffee machine and it looks fab. Its noisy but its hardly the aeroplane like racket some reviewers have seemed to portray. The green one is lovely. Admittedly, its not as beautiful as the toaster or coffee machine but does the job. No problems with it so far at all and we've had it a month or so. Very happy with the full set and the John Lewis 2 year guarantee was the clincher for us.

only lasted two years
Bought the kettle and toaster set 25 months ago and element in kettle which can't be replaced has burnt out. The kettle is priced at the higher end so would have expected longer lifespan out of it. It is also very noise when boiling. Only wish i read these reviews first. Going to now have an odd toaster and kettle because I won't be buying another delonghi kettle. Looking at reviews on other websites the element failing is a common issue.

Thought I would review this in view of other comments about the noise, as it nearly put me off buying it. I have matching toaster, which is great too. There is no doubt this is a noisy kettle, but it looks great, only takes about a minute to boil and you can just leave the room while it boils if the noise bothers you. It is still well worth buying.

Very poor quality
I brought this kettle 2 years & 4 months ago and I'm very disappointed in the quality. I agree with other customer reviews, does not last, my last kettle was dulaiit model which lasted 8 years. This kettle has got chalk stuff all over rim & the brown coating of it is flaking off, so now looks awful in our new kitchen, we also brought the toaster to match but we can't return any because out of warranty! Also got purchase another one as won't match toaster and they've stopped doing this colour! Absolute nightmare! I would like some feedback on this, with what to do, please.

I have just purchased this icona model in bright red.
It looks great but I am very worried that a Green Moss colour has developed half way around the circumference of the inside base of the kettle.
I bought this kettle in january of this year at john lewis in glasgow whilst I was on a weekend holiday.
I have had many kettles over the last 50 years and never have I experienced this before, and I have never needed to descale my kettles before.
What is this GREEN substance.?
After less than 2 months use I am worried in case this is harmful so I am back to using my old kettle until problem is solved.
I would appreciate a reply.

Stylish addition to my kitchen
I bought the blue kettle in this range and I love it. The handle is very comfortable and being on the side has the added advantage that, it doesn't get too hot when you open the lid. Although the magic bubble that shows the volume of water in the kettle has stopped working after just two weeks, I still think it is a stylish and comfortable addition to my kitchen.
