Panasonic NC-DK1 Kettle
Stylish & fast boiling
We pushed the boat on with this on after extensive research. Great investment and proud to show it off. Had doubts because of the reviews regarding its weight but now totally delighted. About half the price we paid 6+ months ago (arghh) but we've definitely appreciated it, plus our 2 yr old Morphy Richards had died the death so we needed a new one and knew Panasonic was a great brand. Now eying up the matching toaster , which wasn't available when we bought. Maybe not suitable for a family but for a single/couple with an eye for innovative style, this is a winner. Very classy

Very stylish and quick!
My husband chose this kettle because of the stylish appearance and he has good taste. We are very pleased with this purchase. It boils rapidly and is quiet about it too! Looks good in the kitchen and the outside does not get too hot so our 10 year old is happy to make the tea sometimes!

This stood out from the rest of the kettles. Looks stylish in our kitchen. The kettle is quiet when boils and doesn't take too long. The only downside is the kettle is a little heavy.

Fantastic looking kettle but heavy and is not the best to pour from!

very stylish suit any modern kitchen
delighted with this product, sets my kitchen off a treat.
unlike other reviews i do not have a problem with lifting the kettle when full or locating the base, and i am a 64 year old female who weighs 48kilos. so please if you like the look at least try it, you will love it.

style over substance
I purchased this on the basis of favourable reviews and whilst it looks good, the kettle is disappointing in use.
It's unreasonably heavy and difficult to place on the base unit, try it full of water a few times and you'll understand.
The pour is slow, tediously slow, which combined with the weight adds to the 'style over function'.
Water pools under the kettle on the base unit, I dont know why or where it comes from and I'm not inclined to waste any more time trying to find out as the kettles going back.
Finally, the fill level indicator is useless.
So, if you want to use the kettle, don't bother with this one.........it does look good though!

A curates egg
This is a mixed review. I like the look of this kettle. A distinctive style, tall and moody. Boils quickly and fairly quietly. When closed the top seals in the water so no leaking. Body cool to the touch.
However, it is very heavy. When filled it weighs over three kilos and is a bit of a handful to locate on the base. This is not an item for frail people or for children to use.
I bought it to replace a succession of cheap kettles which invariably leak over time. I doubt if this will leak but I may not be strong enough to lift it.

Great looking, quick and quiet. Makes a nice change from the normal choice of kettle! Cool to the touch on the outside is nice although it is a little heavy.
Overall.......a good buy.
