Panasonic NC-ZK1 Kettle
Panasonic NC-ZK1HXC Kettle
I bought this kettle, along with matching toaster, less than 2yrs ago but it has started leaking boiling water everywhere when you try to pour from it.
I see several other reviewers are experiencing similar problems.
Unfortunately I'm out of the 1yr guarantee period but there must be a design fault with these kettles that's causing this (potentially dangerous) problem.
It would be sensible for Panasonic to issue a product recall before someone gets scalded.

Best Kettle Ever
It looks amazing in my new kitchen. Great performance. Modern. Amazing colour. Highly recommended product. Thanks to John Lewis!

Great Style and function - great product. Given some other feedback I was concerned about how heavy it would be - but it just is not a problem even though I have a problem with lifting generally. Can tell how much water is in it very easily, and easy to fill and the cool wall is a good feature. What's not to like.

Fantastic Design, Fantastic Kettle
This really is a fantastic kettle, we bought ours to go with our modern kitchen, and it fits in perfectly. Easy to clean, the outside does not get hot, pouring is flawless, once boiled the kettle keeps the water hot for a long period of time, quality and finish of the kettle are top! As with all the Panasonic products its built to last!

This kettle looks modern and a stylish, but does a terrible job . It is very heavy and awkward to use. It pours slowly and awkwardly. You have to wait Inbetween boils as it won't let you refill and boil immediately as the kettle is hot so thinks it has just boiled - even though it's filled with cold water. Very expensive and already looking for new one.

Great design but disappoingting performance
Spent a lot of money on a brand new kitchen and bought this kettle and matching toaster - perfect, or so we thought. Loved the design, a little heavy but knew that having tried it in-store.
After just 2/3 weeks lid started opening itself just as it reached boiling point, or when pouring. Back to store and replaced with new one. Sadly same thing happened with second one, so now that also returned and we have switched to a safer, but not as good looking alternative brand. Pity Panasonic, top marks for design but lacking in performance.

Went with a bang
In terms of looks it is very much a "statement"kettle but as one reviewer says it is rather heavy. Bought ours in March and in April it went with a "Bang"! Now exchanging it for a new one. It does what it it supposed to do but rather expensive.

Looks great and pours very well but when filling it is awkward to see the maximum level.
Also it is very very difficult to ascertain how much water is in the kettle as the viewer is not illuminated.
Apart from that great kettle .........wish I had waited until after Christmas though as it was £ 20 cheaper then !!
