Kenwood kMix Kettle
I love the colour of this kettle and the whole design is very stylish. It feels nice to handle and pours well. I gave 4 stars because the capacity is less than I realised and less than my previous kettle. My fault - I chose it for the colour!

Great design, love the colour and the handle is easy to grip, if like me, you have arthritis. Very trendy to look at !

Style over substance
Just outside guarantee period, the flimsy lid mechanism has finally given up. The kettle has also developed a leak, which is potentially dangerous. Looks good, but this is a case of style over substance, not a great buy!

Great just what we wanted
I had been looking around in many stores for this produce but John Lewis could get me the colour I wanted and deliver it to my local store and give me 2 years guarantee which was great far better than the service from other stores.
The kettle is not the biggest but this Is what we wanted so if you are looking foe a large kettle then this may not be for you.
As we have an open plan house what ever we put in it will be on display so needs to look good and this does .
Great service again from John Lewis

Second time lucky?
This kettle is a great size and really quiet. Fab colours too. However, the lid on the first kettle we bought broke just after the guarantee expired (1 year). Very poor but giving it another go since it's spot on for style and the guarantee period has been extended.

very poor kettle
The kettle started leaking water from the bottom after 18 months. Also the opening mechanism of the lid was very poor and kept jamming. Don't buy this item!

Nice looking kettle but broke after 15 months
The button which opens the lid on the handle has failed so I can't open the lid.
I have decided to replace it with a different make.
Shame as my matching set of kettle and coffee make no longer match but it looks as if this is a perennial problem with this make.
I see it has a two year warranty now. Sadly it only had one year when I bought it so no choice but to buy another.

Nice looking product and good while it lasted
-lovely looking kettle
-easy to open and clean
-easy-to-read measure to ensure you don't overfill
-turns off quickly after boiling so it doesn't over-boil
But... lid did not fasten well and occasionally opened during boiling billowing steam around the kitchen. After about a year of owning the lid has now broken and will no longer fasten. The issue is that the ring around the top of the kettle on which the lid fixes is plastic and has split. Poor design.
