Rated 1 out of 5 by from Electronic Issues - Replacement Kettle same issue We are on our second kettle after an electronic fault in the first one (replaced under warranty). Sadly this one is having a different electrical fault where it will decide not to work at random times. The old turn it off then turn it on again works sometimes, other times not. I'd say there is some faults in the circuitry given this is the second kettle to have this intermittent electronic issue. We have a lot of Sunbeam products and have been happy with them (including others in the Cafe Series) - the quality of this product for the price isn't justifiable, especially when marketed as a higher quality kettle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A Very Dissapointing Kettle As others here have complained, I've had this kettle for over 12 months and it’s the most useless and disappointing kettle that I've ever owned!!! It’s not quite and its definitely not a good or premium product, it keeps changing the countdown to boil and it beeps madly throughout its boil time. This kettle is out of warranty so I couldn’t be bothered to pay for it to be fixed. A very disappointing product from Sunbeam, especially when I thought that “it’s one of their so called premium products”. I’ve had other friends who bought this same kettle and they have had similar problems with this kettle. My suggestion is, do not buy this kettle, it’s a waste of money!!!

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Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not fit for purpose This kettle should be withdrawn from sale. We have this kettle and within the first six weeks of use the lid release button stopped working. As a result we could not open the lid. Returned the kettle to the store whom exchanged it for a replacement. The new kettle has now developed a faulty button caus ing the lid to either jam closed or spring open whilst boiling. I have also noticed that the handle is coming away from the body. This kettle is less than 4 months old.

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 The markings are already coming off We bought this kettle a few months ago and were pretty happy. However most of the button markings are coming off and this is on some buttons we have hardly ever used. If you run your finger over it, they just wipe off. Really disappointed as I'd have expected that the markings would be made to stay on for longer than a few months. I've now got no idea what the various buttons do!

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 1 out of 5 by from DISAPPOINTING I bought this kettle less than a month ago and no longer have it. I found it quite heavy to hold and would not recommend it for the elderly or people with arthritis. The main reason I do not have it any more is that the lid started springing open half way through boiling the water. I had never experienced anything like that before with a kettle. When I tried to close the lid it took a couple of times. Then when I tried to open the lid again it takes 2-3 times pressing the button for it to open. I then noticed small black plastic pieces floating inside the kettle. Clearly something had broken. Took it back to be replaced but the store had none left. They rang another store who had 3 in stock but 2 OF THEM WERE FAULTY and the 3rd was the display model. The fact that 2 more were faulty was the final nail in the coffin. I then purchased a different brand. It was disappointing because I have only ever bought Sunbeam kettles for over 35 years and will probably not buy one again.
