Had our previous jug for 5 years & used endlessly. Yes they leak but only when overfilled above the line, a float marker would help see levels.
Purchased this kettle last April and after ten months it started leaking . I returned it for a refund. I would not buy another one
An excellent jug, size and quality for the price.
EXCELLENT KETTLE!! Doesn't make that noise for me. Working fine.
Goes well but is so so noisy
Brand new kettle boiled just once should not leak. Back to Briscoes it goes.
Looks great, but is very noisy in a kitchen/diner/lounge setup, and the level indicator is hard to see...could do with a red floating bead.
Taking this kettle back as leaks
Very disappointed in this product. First this jug is very noisy while boiling, We have noticed that there is a lime build up around the base of the jug and now we are finding rust spots appearing around this area as well. We have also noticed when we take it off the base, there is a small amount of water on it, but we can not find a leak. The handle is held on by a washer and bolt which also falls off during the boiling process. If I could find the receipt I would definitely return it.
Hard to get lid off and very hard to see water level. Will not be getting another like this
We have had this kettle for 4.5 years and it hasn't skipped a beat. In the last few months the internal screw that holds th ehandle on has come loose but it was easily fixed and for the price it's a minor problem. Semi loud but has never bothered us or woken my small kids in the early hours and very smart looking. For the price, I've been very impressed with the quality.
Had jug 1 week then took back as it leaked and was also horribly noisy. Ended up getting another brand. Would not recommend.
This was the most rubbish piece of junk I ever wasted money on. The switch to turn it on wouldn't stay down. Imagine the frustration of trying to boil the jug at 4am. Horrid returned and refunded.
Noisy, slow, doesn't switch off automatically sometimes, and the 'stainless' steel started rusting. Don't bother.
After buying several Zip Kettles in the past and being quite happy with them this latest Zip 417 is a disaster. The worst feature is that the black plastic base and plastic knob on the stalk inside the kettle emits a very unpleasant aroma. not only that the handle wobbles, the lid is hard to push on and off and the water level is hard to see. I am returning it for a refund and will probably not buy that brand again in the future.
Good kettle, I've had no problems with it. It does make some noise, but so does every other kettle unless advertised otherwise (which this one isn't).
I had this jug for over 15 years. In the end the top of the thermometer broke from the top which was my fault. Highly recommend
