Have had this kettle before love the way it looks.
Amazing looks and works perfectly.
Smart, elegant and highly efficient kettle. Here are the specifications for the Bugatti Vera Kettle:
- 360 Degree connection to the base permits easy use with display integrated into the handle.
- Energy saving and the maximum level of thermal efficiency.
- Self-timer that set and regulates the activation of the kettle.
- Clock function shows the current time.
- Thermal security system prevents kettle from overheating.
Wanted a statement kettle as an engagement present. Was nearly out of by the other reviews but have found it to be excellent. It’s mostly about the looks as in the end it is just a kettle, but it does that well as you could possibly hope for. Only slight (neutral) comments are that if you fill from a brita jug or similar you can’t see how full it is. The lid doesn’t open quite as much you need it to so you need to open it a little more manually, but may loosen up over time. Final thing, it’s not as easy to put back on its base as our old russell hobbs one. None of these diminish its value, but in the end it’s just a kettle. That’s more like a piece of art.
This is without doubt the most stylish kettle money can buy and i feel it has been very unfairly given a bad reviews on here. I bought ours over 4 years ago and in a house of 7 gets a lot of use and abuse. It is different from other kettles and so you have to take some care of it, descaling and not unplugging but in exchange you get a very fast boil that is quiet and does not spray water everywhere even when full as it turns down as it approaches the boil. You cannot switch it on when overfull, you can see how much water is in it, and what temperature it is at, very easily. To address the issues people have had with unreliability mine finally stopped cutting off when boiling (as i said after 4 years heavy use) being a bit of an engineer i tracked it down to a relay (assuming the warranty was long passed). The innards of this thing are actually very well made and assembled, there is a lot of electronics, which may be overcomplicated for some but that is what makes this kettle a cut above. I should also like to say we had got through 5 kettles in as many years before this one. Not cheap kettles either £100+ top of the range by some of the ‘best’ makes. Now this is the really important bit.I emailed epe group who are the service agents for bugatti in the uk asking if i could get a replacement relay.

A fabulous looking kettle which amazingly produces no steam. The clock is very useful too. I was happy with the price as it is a great talking point as well as very useful. However, very disappointed that after only 2 months use the on off button writing has worn away and this with very little use. The clock alternate buton has also started to lose its symbol.
Its a real statement & talking piece works wonderfully. And would fully recommend it. Its the focal point of my kitchen .
Great design and qualitynoise level very reasonablea bit heavy when full with watera great product with lots of programming options.
Love this its looks brilliant.
It matches my kitchen exactly and although i am still not 100% sure on how to make the timer work. I do manage to set it after a few attempts. Haven’t got anything negative to say about it at all.
In spite of the reviews i read in here, i ordered this kettle for its design at a risk it wouldn’t be so good. I’m fact it’s excellent both in looks and utility/functionality. I’d recommend it unequivocally.
