Swan SK24030CN Retro Jug Kettle – but boils water as expected and doesn’t look too bad.

Looks really good retro style fits in with kichen.

Quite a cheap feel to this but boils water as expected and doesn’t look too bad.

I ordered this at the same time as the combi microwave and 2-slot toaster. It looks stylish and the base blends in well making it look as though it is part of the kettle. However, when i stood all 3 on the work surface, it was obvious that the kettle was not the same shade of ‘cream’ as the microwave and toaster. Not just slightly different, more like ‘coffee cream’ compared to ‘cream’. I did use it twice: once to clean it and once for a cup of tea. It boiled well, although a puff of steam seemed to emerge from the switch housing on switch off, which did not augur well for long-time reliability. Looking at the colour on this advertisement, it does seem to match better than the one i received. Perhaps, it was a one-off, but somehow i doubt it. I tried to ring the ‘help line’, as per the telephone number shown on the packaging to find out if it was worth ordering another kettle to see if the colour would be a better match, but the ‘help line’ is actually an ‘unhelpful line’.You cannot talk to a human, there is simply a number of short messages, such as ‘contact your retailer’ and if over 1 year old ‘write to this address’ – a bit like faqs, but not so useful.

  • more like “coffee cream” compared to “cream”
  • but boils water as expected and doesn’t look too bad.
  • purchased this item in september and the quality is poor. I liked the style of the kettle which

Paint is easily marked/chipped.

When it starts to boil it shakes around on the stand. As it boils water stits out of the spout even if it’s only half full.

Features of Swan SK24030CN Retro Jug Kettle, Cordless Design, Stainless Steel, 3kW, 1.5 Litre, Cream

  • Capacity:1.5L
  • Creative design and elegant appearance
  • 360-degree Rotational base, cordless design
  • Superior S/S body
  • Body color painting optional

Purchased this item in september and the quality is poor. I liked the style of the kettle which was purchased for my new kitchen. However the top has gone rusty already which isn’t really expected after 4 months. Looks like the kettle is years old.

Like the look and it’s quick to boil.

A bit noisey when boiling but great look for my new kitchen.

Lovely kettle matching all swan items in my kitchen.

Boils half full fairly quick. Is louder than other makes but looks good alao.

Reasonable price and easy to use but quality doesn’t appear to be very good and i dont think this will last as long as the previous kettle we had.

    Had kettle for 11 months and has developed an exceptional amount of scaling around lid – does not remove with normal kettle descaler.

    The kettle looks nice when you first receive it, but after a very short while there is corrosion and peeling and the switch stops working properly. I bought the whole set of swan retro kitchen items and i’d never buy swan again.

    Waited ages for delivery only to receive somebody else’s returned item (including returns slip, so if you returned it 07/04/18 i got it). Not only had item clearly been used as it was dirty but the enamel was chipped in several places, the spout had been glued, the lid was cheap wrinkled metal, the handle was a shade different. And dont even ask about the inside of the kettle *shudders*. Absolutely furious as i wanted it to go with the toaster and microwave. The microwave was fine but i have now ordered the toaster with currys and am looking for a kettle that will match.

      Paint came off of kettle after a wipe down with a soft sponge, cheaply made , looks good when new, after that a waste of money.

      Have not yet received this item. I’ve been waiting weeks for this kettle, the previous one leaks at the base of the spout, it’s a different style to the one i’m waiting for, just hope, when it does arrive, i don’t have any problems with it.

    On the lid the metal has started bubbling. Also the handle is quickly getting discolored. Would not recommend this kettle.

      I have had this kettle for less than twelve months but it looks like i’ve had it for twelve years. The paint is flaking off around the lid and the lid looks like it was coated in tin foil, it has bubbled up and is coming away. I don’t normally write bad reviews but i bought this for my mum and i am very disappointed in the quality.

    I bought this kettle about 8 months ago. Whilst the body is fine the lid has become tarnished and much of the silver coating has peeled away, looks and feels awful. Also, the lever which you press down to boil the water often jumps up again and you have to physically hold it down to make the kettle boil.

        Rubbish, cheap , failed:arrived dented (as the swan packaging was poorly designed) and scratched. Within weeks these turned to rust spots. The blue led glow failedthe ‘chrome effect’ started to bubble, mark, and discolorit then started to over boil (not switch off early enough)very poor quality.

      The lid is a firm fit and only removable by hand (no flip top) so when you take the lid off after kettle has just been used it is easy to burn your hand on the steam remaining in the kettle. The kettle has started to rust around the spout after only a few weeks of use.

      Pretty colour but badly designed item. The spout is too small to fill from tap without splashing and the lid is awkward to remove. Although fairly quick, it’s very noisy to boil. Centre of gravity is low so makes it harder to pour, especially for frailt elderly who may be weaker/less flexible.

    Less than six months old and chrome has peeled off edge of lid and has lime scale around base of spout which indicates it is not even water right. Really disappointed for the money. I thought swan was a decent brand but would not buy again.

      A very expensive load of rubbish. It takes more than 2 or 3 goes to get the on/off switch to stay down. Then, it stays down until the water begins to heat up then turns itself off, way before boiling. Very very disappointed and very frustrating. Going to keep as an expensive spare but would not recommend it. Added to that, the kettle itself is a different colour to the base.

    I ordered a whole range of swan kitchen appliances and this kettle has spoilt the others. The handle and base are a different shade of cream to the main body and it really stands out. The on/off switch is silver coloured plastic and looks and feels really cheap.

        I love the look and feel of this kettle, and wish that i could give it 5 stars, but after only 5 months of use it has sprung a leak in the bottom. I’m not even able to return it because their ‘return window’ is only one month. This is really terrible service and terrible quality.
