Dèlonghi De’Longhi Icona Micalite KBOM3001W Kettle – – Lovely addition to the Kitchen

Bought several of these over the years – a great kettle. Great looking, more powerful than most (so boils water faster). Didn’t actually need to buy this one as i managed to fix my current one.

It is no noisier than my previous kettle.

Very nice kettle, works very well and looks great. Only downside is when filling it up water goes everywhere unless you take the top off and fill it up through there. This is only a minor problem apart from that it’s a 5 star product. I highly recommend this product. Here are the specifications for the Dèlonghi De’Longhi Icona Micalite KBOM3001W Kettle –:

  • Stylish high-gloss pearlescent red finish
  • 4 slot with option for use of 2 slot independently
  • Electronic controls: reheat, defrost, bagel and cancel
  • Extra lift position for easy removal of small slices
  • Variable browning controls

The look of this kettle is great, it’s nicely designed and finished but i am not convinced under the value for money point of view.

Love this kettle, stylish and works well.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Excellent, smart kettle.
  • Bought 3 years ago – really great!
  • Beautiful stylish kettle with some minor design features.

Very good item, quickly delivered.

I ordered this kettle from amazon because it was a lot cheaper than in local shops. Delivery took a while because they were out of stock but i waited because of the competitive price. I have now used it for a couple of days. With workmen in the house, it has been used rather a lot in that time. It boils very quickly, looks smart and a bit special on the worktop and seems stable on its base. Metal kettles do feel hotter than plastic ones and it would have to be treated with care with children around, but then so would any other kettle. The flex is a good length, not too long, not too short. The only drawback i have found it that if you don’t put the lid on properly, it can fall into the kettle – and it difficult to get out again. However, in general i am very pleased.

Lovely looking addition to the kitchen. In short:in my opinion it boils quickly, has a good noise level when boiling and is easy to keep clean. I have given 5 stars as i’ve used it daily sincemay 2015 (it is now aug 2015) without issue. I’m hoping the reliability will prove to be as good as other delonghi goods i’ve owned. If not then it will drop some stars.

Great kettle that looks stunning next to it’s toaster counterpart. Highly recommend for any modern kitchen.

Is lasting well despite the hard water in our area. Great design, looks good with our coffee machine.

Goes with my matching toaster.

This my second delonghi kettle works just as well as the first, pleased with purchase.

Slightly more noisier than other ones i have had. Bought on question answered by other owners as to its durability as kettles in our house only last 14 months due to heavy water. Have taken advise and started descaling with the aim to do it every 1-2 months. Noticed after a month a significant amount had already built up. Thanks to all who gave advice. Will report back how long this one lasts with the regular descaling.

Kettle is brilliant at boiling water, but the water gauge is hidden behind the handle so difficult to see level when filling.

Ok but doesnt take long for enamel coating to come off.

Really happy but it is a heavy kettle.

Design is sleek, pours beautifully. The lid is not attached but i quite like that. Would recommend this kettle definitely.

I love the design of this kettle and it boils quickly. The one negative i have found is that every time i take the lid off it spills water on the work top, however, pours really well, which is a big plus.

It looks amazing sitting there on my kitchen worktop. I would definitely recommend the super stylish looks. Aside from looking amazing, it boils really quickly, has a very comfortable handle and pours without spillage. I would also recommend buying the matching 4 slice toaster.

Not a lot you can say about a kettle really, it looks fantastic and boils quite quickly which is what you need.

Fast delivery and excellent service. This is a beautiful stylish looking kettle in metalic red. Have bought matching toaster and look great together. The kettle swivel base is very light and flimsy and could do with a little more weight to keep it flat. The spout is too small to fill up directly, so requires the lid to be removed each time. Other than that the design features seem ok and only time will tell.

  1. 5.0 out of 5 stars Bought 3 years ago - really great!
    It is a fast boiler, really rapid and it is useful to see exactly how much water you have put in, so you can judge for one cup or six. It is a great design and always looks good on the work top. It is easy to clean and has a wonderful shine even after 3 years of daily use – we are home all day (retired) and we make at least 12/14 mugs of teas or coffee every day. My only downside is that it tends to be noisy, but this may have been fixed on a newer kettle and as it boils so quickly it is not really a major problem. Even my scaredy cat doesn’t take any notice of the noise when she is feeding, despite running frantically upstairs and hiding under the bed when the doorbell rings.

    I have had 2 of these kettle and each one lasted about 13 months, then pfffut stopped workingi know what you’re thinking ‘heavy use, overfilling, underfilling’ nope i have about 3 to four cups of tea a day i always ensure there is enough in the kettle so it is above the minimum and it is switched off at the plug when not in use. The cost of these kettle are not value for money, but if you want a stainless tea kettle (which you should there is no plastic taste to your drinks and the water does stay warmer longer because the reflective steel in the kettle) i would not choose this one as it’s reliability is not great at £60+ a kettle that lasts just over a year is not value for money any electrical appliance should last at least 5 years more if it is lightly used as this one was. I would not recommend this product to anyone because the quality and life of the goods leave much to be desired. I gave this 1 star since it last 1 year.

    Annoyingly hard to read water level and it’s quite a noisy boil.

    This is my second red delonghi kettle – i was so happy with the first. A little unfortunate that the micalite finish is not the same as the first one, as i also have both the toaster and espresso machine to match the original. . But it’s still a thing of beauty, to my mind at least.

    Have had this kettle for two months, not even used once a day and it has just stopped working. Definitely would never recommend to my worst enemy.

      1. 1.0 out of 5 stars Leaking! Very bad quality! I was surprise to see made in China!!!
        I was so exiting to try this, it’s look very stylish and suits to my kitchen and delonghi coffee machine. But when first time i put it to boil, it is start leaking from the water display window at the bottom.

    1. 3.0 out of 5 stars Nice looking but consider safety
      The kettle does look briliant on the kitchen worktop, boils water quickly with no nasty aftertaste as experienced with some cheap products but there are negatives. – measuring 1 or 2 cups is a struggle as the indicator is geared towards larger amount of water. – the casing is metalic and will get very hot to touch after boil. – small amount of scalding hot water shoots out of the spout when kettle is moved upright soon after finished pouring. This is not only annoying but quite dangerous if you have small children around you in the kitchen. No idea how this got missed by the company.
