Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best kettle ever! I'm wondering why I didn't buy this kettle sooner! It has every feature I want, including digital temperature display. It is efficient, simple to use and so quiet. And it looks sleek and modern. It is somewhat heavy, which I attribute to the extra inbuilt layer which dampens noise. But I don't have a problem with the weight and it is well compensated by sturdy construction and quiet operation. I want it to last, so will be diligent with descaling, having found the Sunbeam descaling liquid inexpensive and readily available at Harvey Norman.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it but confused! It is a great product...quiet and love the different temps and keep warm setting. Confused why it has a sterilisation feature, as there is absolutely nothing to explain what this does (yep, get what sterilisation does, but why is it a benefit and for whom?) Pretty poor description everywhere on page. Love kettle...but would appreciate knowing why there is this feature...does it clean water? Very confusing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn’t last I love the idea of this kettle, and while working it’s got great features. The variable temp setting is super useful- I’ve used it to water to the right temp for making bread, and I really liked the extended boil time for baby formula etc. However, the built quality is extremely poor for the price. We were fortunate enough to have sunbeam replace our first one just out of warranty when the temp sensor started to play up causing constant beeping and stopping the unit from turning off once boiled. The second kettle is now doing the same thing. This time though, the mechanism to open the lid has also failed and we also have to pry it open with a knife. For such an expensive kettle, it should last much much longer. A terrible waste that will end up in landfill!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what i needed with minor issues I have this kettle for about a year now. It's still running but sometimes it beeps while heating up, i think it has to do with the thermometer function because it keeps changing the countdown to boil when it beeps. Also like other users have reported some buttons have started peeling off. Not incredibly quiet, but quiet-ish. HOWEVER! It is the only kettle in the market that sterilises water and that's it's best feature. Another user is wondering whats the use of the sterilise feature. Firstly it's great for anyone needing sterilised water such as people with medical conditions as well as for sterilisation of baby bottles etc.... Secondly, sterilised water contains less oxygen which is great because if you are a green tea drinker you know already the benefits of antioxidants and polyphenols in the green tea. Did you know however that the oxygen in the water kills the antioxidants? The only way around it is to use water that has been boiling continuously for some time and contains less oxygen. So thank you Sunbeam for this unique product that has heaps of useful features despite the minor issues. I am considering to purchase one more as a backup in case it gets discontinued as there is no other kettle in the market like it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quality just not there 2nd faulty lid On my 2nd one now after 1st one having a faulty lid, 2nd one now the same problem, also not always recognising heating base and now the handle is coming away from the kette at the top. For the price tag you would expect a bit of longevity. Could be great, but even if it was half the price it still wouldn't be a good buy. I'm happy to pay more for something that is made well and lasts. Disappointed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really is quiet! We've moved to a new house which is very open plan - kitchen dining & living is one big open space. The noise of my old kettle was driving me mad, so looked at few different ones & decided on a black cafe series. I'm so pleased that it actually is a quiet boil kettle, so not only does it look good on the bench, it's perfectly quiet & we use it every night. Love it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Was a good Kettle until breakdown was a great kettle even with the high price, until like others, I noticed plastic floaties. Now the lid does not open and I am still finding plastic. Older than 12 months of course and for a kettle of this price I expect a lot more. $20 kettles rarely have an issue and with the failed button I have lost out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than the previous model We had an older version of this kettle that lasted years but unfortunately sprung a leak. Rather than trying to reseal it I just decided to get a new one. This new model is much quieter than the previous and has some cool feature like being able to sterilise which would be really handy if we still had babies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek, stylish and functional I bought this as my brother had it and have never looked back! It is a very stylish looking and ergonomic piece for the kitchen. My favourite function is the timer countdown and I know how long I have left to do a few tasks before making a cuppa. Fantastic price for the product too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and quite. Had this kettle now for 2 years paid less than the rrp from Harvey Norman. Has more features than i need but is a great looking kettle. Only problem i have had is the writing next to the other boil temperature button, on two buttons has rubbed off. It is quick and very quite too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Continuous beeping - drive you mad! This kettle is not really as quiet as claimed, but much, much worse is the continuous beeping as it is heating - random and annoying! Is there any advice from Sunbeam on why this is happening and how it might be stopped?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Kettle Would have to be the BEST ever kettle that I have owned over a 50 year period, maybe a tad heavy BUT never any scale build up on the inside as others have done at this address and is just spot on it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great style I bought this for the matte black colour and the design, and still love it. Looks great in my kitchen, pours beautifully and nice and solid. It's quieter rather than quiet but has a good quick boil.
