This is actually ok so far had it a few months and it hasn’t stopped working :).
This kettle was exactly as described. Unlike a previous reviewer, we do not find the shape of the handle causes a problem when filling from the tap – in fact, we find no problem with this, whereas with our old kettle it was much more awkward. We emailed the company to request a uk plug and the stainless steel filter, and gabriella replied very promptly and confirmed that they had received the message. There are no plastic parts in the kettle itself so no plastic comes in contact with the water as long as you request the stainless steel filter, which is done by emailing the seller. There has been no unpleasant taste and no smell right from the start. It feels much more solid and durable than our previous kettles. We have only had it for about 3 weeks, but i expect it to last.
Ottoni Fabbrica Italian Top Kettle “Alice Nero” 2400W 1,7 L
- Electric kettle made entirely in 18/10 stainless steel MADE IN ITALY.
- Removable lime scale filter.
- The parts are all made in Europe.
This kettle is great, especially as it has no plastic parts touching the water, but sometimes is doesn’t switch itself off when it’s boiled so i have to flick it off myself.
I have been using this for just over a month now and am delighted with the purchase. Well made, stainless steel, no plastic filter, no space age lighting, no wifi, just a brilliant little traditional kettle. Well worth the money with wonderful customer service i might add.
Firstly, let me say this, i have been on amazon for years and lost count of the orders i have had and this is the very first feedback or product review i have left. That alone speaks volumesit is a quirky design but i love it. The stainless steel is outstanding quality and thickness far superior to indian or chinese imported products. It feels, looks and the service feels like it has been made with a lot of pride in the quality of workmanship and with the desire that the end users will feel that love, and it worked 🙂 highly polished to a gleaming finish inside and out, that it attention to detail. I came to this product having spent years thinking my tea and coffee tasted weird. My wife would never drink tea or coffee that hadn’t been filtered with a britta etc but to me it still tasted weird. Bought a new kettle for work a cheap plastic one and it was awful undrinkable chemical stodge. So i boiled some in a microwave which is not ideal but the smell and taste wasn’t there. That led me to googling tainted tea and came across a long thread on the which forum, it wasn’t just me there are loads of people with the same issues with the new cheap imported plastic kettles. So then my search began for a non-plastic kettle, blimey how difficult was that.
Ottoni Fabbrica Italian Top Kettle “Alice Nero” 2400W 1,7 L : The kettle is quiet, easy to fill and pour from and has a little red light to tell you it is on. It arrived early and was well packed in recyclable packaging. All the parts are made in europe so fewer ‘kettle miles’. It has no plastic touching water and so is healthier for you. It came with a free gift of 6 nice teaspoons (always useful). You can request both a british plug and stainless filter if you want and they confirm this by email. Definitely would recommend this kettle and the company.
It is refreshing to come across a company that is so committed to client satisfaction and craftsmanship. The actual kettle is very well made and you can tell there is pride in the construction and design. It took me some time to find a non plastic kettle (i. Having no internal plastic parts due to leeching and contaminating the boiling water). If you ask the company during the order to install a metal gauge instead of the plastic one and to install a uk plug they will they will do so happily. I also received a complimentary tea spoon set which was not only beautifully crafted but another sign of the companies commitment to client care. Great packaging and communication. My only slight issue is that the kettle can be a tad loud but this really is nothing to worry about. I would recommend this product and company.
Great looking kettle, packed very well and included some free teaspoons. It feels very well made with a high quality finish. I can taste the difference in my tea and coffee compared to my russel hobbs that it has replaced. I wasn’t sure it was worth the extra money but so far i’m impressed.
Great quality kettle, found this ‘plastic free’ kettle after a long research. Very happy about my purchase :).
Best buy kettle, albeit the plastic kind, lasted less than 6 months and i could not be bothered to take it back. I choose this kettle based on the good reviews here. As suggested by other reviewers, i contacted the company (in english i’m afraid) to ask for a uk plug and metal filter; their response could not have been prompter or more courteous. Simple, attractive, solid, easy to clean and it looks like it is built to last. Worth the money to my mind if you too are tired of having to throw electrical goods away.
No frills, but great quality, and best of all no plastic at all. Even if you’re dubious about the health benefits, it’s worth considering this kettle for it’s durability: the weak point in most kettles is where the plastic water window meets the metal, over time the seal can perish casing leaks. Boils quickly and reasonably quietly, pours well. Ordered on a monday, item arrived thursday morning.
I had been searching online for a stainless steel kettle that had no plastic in the interior of the kettle for so long but to no avail. I had purchased a glass kettle thinking that it would be a healthy choice but even that had a silicone rim at the base where it would be in contact with the water and i am trying to avoid toxic chemicals like plastic and silicone. However, by chance i had come across a post by a blogger who had managed to find an ottoni fabbrica stainless steel kettle (without any plastic interior) along with photos. I decided to do another internet search on ottoni fabbrica kettles which brought me to the amazon website where they had a couple of different designs of kettle and in lots of lovely colours. I have been shopping on amazon for years and when i was initially searching for a kettle on the amazon website, the ottoni fabbrica kettles never came up. I think it’s quite hidden for customers. You have to actually type in “ottoni fabbrica kettles” in the search engine before you can find them. I have had my kettle for a couple of months now and am very pleased with it. It’s somewhat expensive but i would recommend it.If you purchase directly from their website it is slightly cheaper.
Easy to use handle, pour and fill. Has retained its classic appearance. Relatively quiet and quick to boil.
The kettle arrived sooner than i expected, which was a nice surprise, and after a few weeks of using it i now can say that i absolutely love it. I’ve been looking for a plastic free kettle for a while and i’m happy to say that i finally found one which is also really robust as well as beautifully made. It will look pretty in any kitchen. It boils the water as quick as any standard electric kettle, and the water tastes. I can finally enjoy a cup of tea without horrible taste of plastic. It pours really nicely too, the spout is positioned just right so there is no leakage, no spillage or tipping your kettle upside down to get that last bit of water out (like my previous kettle). I highly recommend to everyone who wants a plastic free kettle to get this one. Although you have to ask for stainless steel filter to go with your non plastic kettle, but don’t worry because costumer service is an absolute delight. Very professional, very quick in response and just super nice. I even got a uk plug without asking.
I love this as had been looking for a kettle with no internal plastic parts for ages. It also came with a metal filter inside. The only drawback to this kind of kettle is that if you have just used it and want to refill it you have to remove the lid which can be quite hot whereas others of the plastic variety have the flip top lids. But really glad to have found this.
Ottoni fabbrica italian top kettle ‘alice nero’ 2400w 1,7 l theres not much i can add of value over many of the other 5 star reviews here, all of them well earned i think. This kettle is beautifully constructed, exudes quality workmanship-and in the the little details too like the slick mechanism of the one of switch. Plastic free quality , fantastic.
This is a kettle of excellent quality, which is well balanced and easy to handle. It pours well and the lid fits securely but easily. The switch is positive and never reluctant, even when the kettle has just boiled. I would not hesitate in recommending this product.
Superior craftsmanship, amazing style, fast delivery. I am very happy with my purchase, will definitely recommend to family and friends. No more worries about plastic 🙂 ps – loved the personalized letter and the gift of wonderful spoons included with my order. Thank you ottoni fabbrica :).
Fantastic kettle, very stylish. Boils very quickly and obviously high quality materials and well made. Excellent customer service also.
This the first product review that i have placed on amazon, having used them for many years. I should make clear that i am in no way affiliated with ottoni fabbrica. We came to this kettle by way of three other models in seven years. None were cheap, unbranded super market items, but top of the range offerings from what were once solidly reliable brands, whose products used to be referred to as consumer durables. Now they are transformed through “value engineering & offshore manufacturing“ to nothing so much as consumer transients. Take heart, as salvation would appear to be at hand in the form of a kettle from ottoni fabbrica. I say appear, as i cannot vouch for the longevity of the product on my present short acquaintanceship. All elements of this transaction exude quality: from the communication, packaging, to the kettle and base. The inner cardboard protection for the kettle has had much thought devoted to its design: no polluting expanded polystyrene here. The base comes with more cable than our last kettle.
Fantastic kettle, wanted one with no plastic parts in contact with boiling water. Looks stylish and not noisy. I asked for a stainless steel filter and they obliged. Lovely personal message from the company in italy and they sent 6 teaspoons as well :). A joy to use and a wonderful company to deal with.
Great customer service throughout the process, right up until delivery. Its a great product, the people who make and sell it seem to be really nice too.
