What we didn’t like
- This is quite a heavy kettle, even when empty, also for those who are used to more of a straight design
- Because of the bulbous shape you really do have to tip this a long way over to empty it when boiling a small quantity of water.
The De’Longhi KBO1401R Electric Kettle is a great item. Retro look, red color looked very nice. When you pour water it comes out in nice smooth way without dripping around. Base is steady and it sits on easy. Heats water up very fast and keeps water temperature for long time. Only that we wish the water level indicator was larger, but it is still a recommendable choice for your home or office.
