After the old cheap kettle (still from my student times) given up the ghost, had a fast (higher quality this time) Spare ago. The reviews and the product ranking at Amazon have ultimately been the decisive reason for this Philips kettle.
The device is indeed mostly plastic, but has a really good build quality and has a steel floor, the water heats up (ie, no heating elements or heating coil, but all "smooth"). When even a small water outlet (entnehmebares) sieve is conveniently placed so that any limescale deposits can not be reached in the cup.
A short afterburner with a tendency to "Off-Topic"
In various test magazines of this kettle has received considerable point deduction because it is hot outside. This view is completely incomprehensible to me, because if you put a pot on the stove, the all also hot. That's exactly THAT what you expect. To constantly make everything extremely "child safe" long-term damage to the children more than it benefits them, because they lack the appropriately respectful and serious dealing with such things!
Another good example of the recent development is the way to give the children only LED lanterns at St. Martin's procession. When should children or else learn how to deal with fire, when not under the supervision of dozens of parents, carers, children and other adults gardeners ???
The kettle was delivered quickly and entsprichtin all my expectations. It heats up very quickly, thanks to 2400 Watts (could in old buildings with 10-Amp fuses cause problems!) The device is inexpensive. , On an operating display with - signal lamp can be omitted, because the water is boiling in no time and the cooking noise signal is enough. I would buy the device again and again and can recommend it.
