Stellar Horwood SV69 Casstel Kettle – Five Stars

Excellent kettle, thank you.

I ordered this item on sunday and it was delivered to us in the south of france on wednesday morning, incredible service, beautifully packaged and just the kettle we were looking for, thank you.

Excellent quality and good capacity. Deafeningly efficient whistle – just be careful not to scald your hand removing it too early. Handle can get warm if left too long on the heat, neverthless am delighted with this purchase and courtesy of supplier. Here are the specifications for the Stellar Horwood SV69 Casstel Kettle:

  • Satin stainless steel hob top kettle
  • Suitable for all hobs including induction
  • Sculptured hollow soft grip handle, thick thermic base
  • Easy to Fill, Easy to Pour
  • Pleasant Whistling Tone

Looks good, boils fast, all round lovely kettle.

Good, whistle wakes the street.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • lovely kettle
  • Great stove-top kettle.
  • Lovely kettle

Wow should have bought one sooner.

Has lived up to its reputation.

Had it for over a month now. It boils quickly on our induction hob. The handle is comfortable and easy to use. The whistle is not too noisy or piercing.

Really nice to look at and heats up quickly. I’m very pleased with this purchase, good value. The whistle is loud so i can hear it when i am in another part of the house- no change to boil it dry.

We’ve only had this for a few days, so i can’t comment on longevity, but otherwise it seems a great buy. Solid, well designed and boils very quickly. Many kettle handles get too hot, but not this one. Whistle/spout cover is completely removable which is what we wanted, but is not always mentioned in product descriptions.

I looked at every hob kettle and review i could find for weeks before ordering the stellar casstel. It’s even better than i’d hoped. The whistle works (in an increasing crescendo), the lid is snug but not difficult to remove, the spout is positioned high enough for a full kettle to boil without overflow, the angle of the handle makes for comfortable lifting (but the instructions warn that it can get very hot). The overall design is beautifully proportioned and unfussy, enhanced by the brushed steel sheen. Pretty as well as functional, thank you stellar. The box containing my kettle should have contained the instruction/maintenance leaflet but didn’t, so i had to find these online. I also emailed the customer service and received a very prompt reply. Very satisfied customer here.

I could see that the kettle was unsuitable when i opened the box. It was back in the box after less than a couple of minutes. The description says suitable for aga use. I don’t think so it is very light and flimsy and small. Not as good as one which i have been using for 25 years and which is still going strong(just thought i would have a shiny new one). To be fair this is the sort of product that one needs to see and evaluate. What upset me was that it cost £10 to return it,although the delivery postage along with a full refund was refunded i was still out of pocket to the tune of £10.

Bought this in a flash of inspiration to use on my induction hob. The kettle is ok but the inspiration wasn’t. We have now gone back to an electric kettle. The whistle had a tendency to fly off, possibly we had the heat too high, and the whistle was also piercing, possibly also the heat was too high. All in all we preferred the ease and safety of a cordless electric kettle.

Had kettle for several months now, whistle very loud, but brilliant kettle.

A bit flimsier than i thought it would be.

I recommend this kettle for it is great quality and looks very good in our kitcheni bought from harts of stur via another online service, just to use my loyalty points there. Ordered on christmas day and it was delivered to fife, scotland on 30th december by dpd.

Really pleased with kettle and would recommend. A small tip is to wait a few seconds before removing whistle after kettle has boiled, otherwise you’ll get scalded with the steam. Not rocket science but noticed a few reviewers had complained about getting scalded.

Works very well om the gas hob or induction.

Received 2days earlier than expected so i was very pleased. The product looks well made, as expected of stellar. It works well on the induction job, the handle remains cool andvpoursxwell.

Bought stellar products in the past and always found them well made and good value this is no exception, the rubber coated handle in comfortable and does not become to hot. We use this on the top of a wood burning stove where the wide flat bottom maximises the heat from the stove and boils the water in very quick time. I would recommend this item for use on any solid fuel stove aga etc.

Have always had stove top kettles. On the high street it is impossible to find this sort of quality. Comfy handle that doesn’t get hot. At this price you’ll be pushed to find better.

    This was bought as a requested xmas gift for my son and daughter in law who prefers stove kettles to electric. It’s well made very attractive and the design of the wide base makes it ideal for use on the stove my son and his wife love it. Plus it was a reasonable price.

    I bought it in august 2017, so it has not been a year yet. It is used twice-three times a day. The rubber bit on the handle is now starting to show some bubbles. I guess it comes from the heat and eventually it will come off completely. I have not figured yet how to contact the seller. The stainless steel is not going to stay that colour. It becomes yellow straight away from the heat, not that it bothered me.
