Buckingham Dome Shape Induction Whistling Kettle 2 : Excellent kettle makes better tea

As described and arrived on time.

Fantastic kettle, lovely colour.

I bought this for my wife, and it was pre-ordered from amazon. The item was dispatched immediately after it was released. It has a nice shape, and my wife likes the color. It does whistle when the water is ready, and is sometimes fun. The kettle does not use electricity, and there is no heating coil inside. This makes the kettle light. Furthermore, the water tastes better when making tea. Definitely recommend this product.

Very pleased with this kettle. The handle does not get hot , it whistles and pours without spilling. The spout cover opens with a trigger action on the handle.

Buckingham Dome Shape Induction Whistling Kettle 2.6 L, Red

  • BUCKINGHAM dome shape stainless steel whistling kettle
  • High quality 18/10 stainless steel
  • Aluminium and stainless steel 4mm bonded base for even heat distribution
  • Suitable on all heat surfaces including induction hobs
  • Mirror finish with an outer metallic red colour coated

Well worth scrolling down the list of available induction kettles. Good quality finish, although the red is subtle rather than vibrant. The whistle is amazing you can hear it from upstairs when it goes. Handle does not get too hot unless you leave it boiling away. Just make sure the lid is on tight or the steam can heat up the handle.

Very bright red and a very loud whistle. Love this kettle as it boils faster than an ordinary electric kettle on our induction hob. I’m hoping that the red stays on as it could be easily damaged but so far so good.

Love this whistling kettle, have wanted one for ages, exactly as described and would recommend.

Great funky red whistling kettle, arrived on time, a very slight dent just under the handle, i know i could have sent it back and they would have been pleased to replace it but it wasn’t a problem. Excellent water capacity, i only have to fill it very slightly for two cups of of tea. This is the first whistling kettle i have bought and found it to be a much faster boiler then an electric kettle, very impressed and despite the dent i would be happy to buy items from this firm again.

This kettle is light weight, it boils quickly, it has a resonably loud whistle and you can open the top with out scalding yourself with the steam. It is a nice colour and looks good. I am happy with my purchase and i would recommend it.

Scary sparks emanating from the on switch of my year old electric kettle resulted in my looking for a hopefully reliable replacement water boiler-upperthis kettle looks very attractive whilst sitting on my ceramic hob. It pours well & isn’t too heavy when filled. The handle is substantial & the mechanism for opening/closing the spout is good. During its first week of use it seemed a little shy. Rather a quiet whistle, but now it’s found its voice for sure. The loud whistle’s heard from all over the house & garden. A strange foible during its first week of use – when the spout was lifted after boiling, the lid popped open too & became difficult to close. This was a potential deal breaker, however, it sorted itself out within a couple of days so return-packaging was duly binned. There’s no maximum marker for filling, but i’m able to advise you, through experience (read as: stupidity), stay at least 1 cm below the spout otherwise there’s no whistling. Just violent spitting, spluttering & puddling over the cooker top.

Really pleased, looks smart. Nice to hear the whistle as it boils, so much quieter than an electric kettle when it’s heating up. Was a little perplexed when it arrived without any covering packaging at all and no tape over the lid of the box. But when i opened the box all looked fine and untampered. Is it a new policy of amazon to not use any packaging at all now??. This was delivered to a neighbour as i was out, which is fine, but if the item had been of a more ‘personal’ nature would it have come without packaging then??.

Looks lovely and performs well. Have used on both the woodburning stove and the hob. Obviously it takes longer than an electric kettle, but when the stove’s on at this time of year, you’re getting free hot water. The whistle is cute and loud enough to hear in the next room (but not if you’ve got the radio on).

  1. 1.0 out of 5 stars Handle fell off

    The rivet on the handle fell out after only second use, within two weeks of receipt, on a campervan trip. We had to wire it up so we could use it, but it will not be suitable to use again, so not worth buying.

  3. 2.0 out of 5 stars Manufacturing issues; and not as good as a copper-bottomed one

    Bought this last year in august 16. Now march 17 and the plastic handle has become semi-detached, making it less safe potentially (will probably break completely soon) and whistle less. I have used it intensively but carefully over the past 7 months. But kettles should be designed with intensive use in mind. On a previous search for a hob kettle i made a point of getting one with a copper bottom. I think it does actually make a difference to the boiling time, even in summer. So my next stop is an all-copper welded one. And the traditional technique of our ancestors: picking up with a cloth.
