However, it is not quite perfect. Because it is tapered at the top to a small opening, I can't fill it through the lid opening at the water cooler at my office - there isn't enough room around the spigot. So I have to fill it through the spout....even through the instructions explicitly say not to. For home use, filling from a sink, it won't be an issue.
Also of note, the instructions say, in bold type:
"when you lift the kettle from the base, you will see drops of moisture on the surface of the power base. This is the steam used to switch the kettle off automatically, which then condenses and escapes through vents in the underside of the kettle. This is perfectly normal, and should not be cause for alarm or returning the kettle."
Sounds like this is maybe a sore subject with Dualit? Anyway, I haven't noticed any undue water on the base.
The biggest nitpick I have, and it may be more than a nitpick for some, is with the lid closure. Unlike other electric kettles I've owned, which have a soft-touch button which gently opens the top lid, and you press it gently down to close, this Dualit lid has a friction closure, and it is *very* stiff. There are two tiny "outdents" on the lid which rub against the inside of the opening and keep it closed. It takes a firm grip and a firm (but careful) tug to open the lid, and a very firm push to close it. I guess I could have tried taking a pair of pliers to it, but after a few days I just took to slamming the lid closed with the palm of my hand. BAM! Every weekday, for six months, slamming it closed: I do think it points up the sturdy build quality of the unit. However, it is definitely a design flaw in my view, versus other electric kettles. Maybe my unit was unusual, but those potential buyers perhaps with arthritis, a weak grip, or who simply don't want to deal with this daily, should beware. I was going to give one of these to my parents, but ended up giving them a Breville SK500 due to this.
Other than the lid-closure issue it seems well-designed. The handle is far enough away that I've never accidentally touched the hot metal part of the kettle, as I have occasionally with other electric kettles I've owned. The bottom of the kettle gets quite warm, but not hot, so you could take it off the base upon boiling and set it down on most surfaces without a hot pad. There are fill-level windows on both sides of the unit (most kettles just have one fill window).
All in all this seems (so far) to be a well-built unit, with one design issue keeping it from being a five-star product. Most of the kettles I've owned have lasted for 2 to 3 years of daily use and then eventually the thermostat gradually fails and takes longer and longer to shut off the unit after reaching boil. If this unit checks out before then, I'll update my review.
Does its job fine so far-One month in of heavy use.
