Q & As

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 52 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointing We bought this Kettle 2 years ago,(looks great but..) and over the past 6 months its slowly corroded all around the top where the chrome rim meets the body of the kettle (which has now come adrift!) and then last week the knob on the top fell off (that too had cracks appearing in it) ! For the price I would have expected this product to last a lot longer ! Very poor quality for the money...will not be buying another. 15 September 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by A Little dissappointed I have gone through numerous electric kettle and thought I've had enough of this and bought a LC kettle went back to basics, It looks lovely we bought the beige one, very heavy especially if your only used to electrics kettles. The only fault that I have with it is when you turn the gas off after it boils the water spurts all over it's really quiet dangerous, so be aware otherwise love it. 24 March 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Lasted 4 months, JL service just as bad Bought in October 14, Feb 15 whistle broke. Whistling kettle with no whistle.....No problems we thought, the JL 5 year guarantee will be great here. Returned kettle to York yesterday to be told that this is a Le Creuset guarantee(!) and we have to post kettle back to them and JL will not replace or repair despite buying it from them! Appalling service and manners from staff. Practically we now have to buy a kettle, send LC kettle back to them and wait... 24 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by improved whistle! This is my second one of these - the old one lasted 6 years so not bad as it's subject to a lot of use. This model is very slightly lighter in weight but very robust, the whistle is louder and improved although still feels like the weak point on the kettle. I bought a black one, which means that if it does get "flame" marks on it they won't show. If you are used to an electric kettle, this is not for you as it takes a while to boil if you fill it to it's max! 04 February 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Takes forever to boil and whistle is very very quiet Takes at least 15 mins to boil on our AGA with 2 mug fulls of water, the whistle is very very quiet so you can't leave the room while it is taking an age to boil. The lid doesn't fit properly so steam escapes. Looks quite nice hence the one star. I'll be returning and getting a proper AGA kettle. 28 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does what it says on the tin After having 3 electric kettles break, we went for a stove top, this is a great size holds enough water when you have guests so not constantly boiling the kettle for caffetiers and tea. No electrics so should last forever! Takes longer to boil but doesn't make much difference. Great kettle and works on any heat source not just gas, looks great too! Would also double for camping being pretty sturdy. Would recommend this product. 30 July 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by No more leads! Bought this kettle as we have an induction cooker and wanted to make the most of it with this induction kettle. It is nice not to have the trailing lead of the electric kettle in the way any more and it has also given us more worktop space. Very pleased with the kettle. It does take a little longer to boil but you get used to it and it is worth the wait rather than having trailing leads. Easy to fill & easy to pour and the handle stays cold so no worries about picking it up. The lid is a little tight but that is not really a negative. Overall I am very happy with this product. 08 July 2014
