Visicook WKG 67R PowerBoil Glass kettle : Ooh, I love your kettle

Super,love everything about it.

I love this kettle and find it very easy to use. I am a little worried that i will break the glass jug part at some point, but it’s worth the risk.

VisiCook WKG 67R PowerBoil Glass kettle, 1.4 Litre, Red

  • Power Boil gives you 3000W at 240V for fast boil performance time after time
  • BPA free glass bowl
  • Lift-off lid aids cleaning, and it’s so easy to see that it’s clean, too
  • 360 degree base for your convenience
  • Nothing else looks like it, it’s a style statement

This is a smart little number – looks good and would recommend.

It does wobble a bit on it’s base and is a little noisy-but that’s not a big deal.

Ordered it on tuesday and it arrived the next day. I’ve had other glass kettles over the years and this is the best one yet. Love the easy removable lid, fast boil and just everything about this item.

VisiCook WKG 67R PowerBoil Glass kettle, 1.4 Litre, Red :

I bought this kettle around 2 weeks ago and so far im happy with it. Red plastic parts seems to be cheaply made but in fact the are attached nice and solid. I didnt check before buying properly and was expecting plastic free kettle (parts that have contact with water) and actually the lid is made of plastic. No idea if its bpa free or not. Without plastic bit i would give it 5stars. Good thing is that you can actually remove the plastic lid before pouring the water etc so i can live with it. I found out that if you fill up only half of the glass jug then boiling water won’t touch the plastic lid. The base is made in china and rest of plastic parts are probably too. It says that the glass part is from germany. Overall kettle is ok and boils the water really quick.

Love this kettle but unfortunately i live in a very hard water area and need filtered water in it otherwise it scales up very quickly. It does mean i am drinking less limescale though which is a good thing.

My old kettle broke and i fancied something a tad different so i chose this, it’s looks are beautiful, it boils really quickly and with it been glass it easy to gauge the correct amount of water to use, easy to clean. My only niggle is you have take the lid off to fill it.

This is the best kettle we have ever had. Good points: does not take too long to boil. Looks lovely in our kitchen. Glass is eco friendly and safe.

Very happy, definitely i will bay again.

Looks good, like the idea of a detachable lid. Hope it lasts as long as the one it has replaced which was the same type, but the lid disintegrated after 18 yearswell we’ve had this kettle a short while now and after using it regularly, it seems it leaks water when pouring and the blue light doesn’t come on most times, it seems temperamental. Therefore, i have downgraded my stars from 5 to 3.

Can only be half filled otherwise when water is boiling, it all spurts out. Alsobthe cord can only be very short or all out, nothing in between.

A very stylish and modern kettle. It is a bit rounded but you get loads in and nice to see water bubbling away. Can seem noisy by some but you soon detract from sound of kettle once you busy away with other things. Taking lid off completely and replacing takes time to get used to if you’re used to kettles with lid attached. I really like it as it looks completely different to what is mass produced on the market. Delivery was impeccably perfect.

This is my third visicook kettle, they are just beautiful, other kettles last me a few months, these last for years if you look after them, definitely worth the money.

The lid is a bit of a faff , but easy to adapt to.

And more to the point quiet when boiling.

Looks nice but lid may be a bit too much to keep taking off to fill up.

Would buy again if required.

Looks amazing love watching it bubble and it’s quick. Very happy but don’t keep a gold fish in it.

Having read many reviews and been extremely disappointed by what appears to be an obvious lack of quality (and no clear response by most manufacturers) to previous feedback from obviously disappointed customers. I bought first one then another arendo kettle. Which to put it mildly were cheap (errrmmm. And had to be returned for refunds. So, desperate to find a decent kettle. I opted to try team visicook. I have not been disappointed. And i’m extremely pleased and very happy. Visicook kettle is quality you can trust (ie not made in china)it has a very fast boil. But, a kitchen is not a library or a quiet train carriage . And what else for a fast efficient boil. Kids, washing machine and radio make more noise. I didn’t measure time and compare it to previous kettles (how sad are some people. With nothing left to do in their little lives?)and no. It doesn’t have a spout filter mesh (plastic / metal or anything else). If you want to filter the water. Get a separate water filter and pour from that into the kettle.

It is a great looking kettle and it is really quite clever to see the water you’re boiling. Makes you far more aware of how much you’re wasting if boiling just for a single cuppa. If i were to pick fault with it, it is that it is white i would have preferred a black one. And also that the lid doesn’t just flip up for filling. You have to know how to release it and also to put the spout-side in first before aligning the back. Fiddly, and definitely not the cleverest design. I live in a very hard water area and found that it furred up very quickly (no more quickly than my old one- but you could see it happening). I have started filtering the water before i put it in the kettle.Since then- no limescale at all any more.

    Works quickly, and as it is glass, it does not change the taste of the water. Since the water in london is very hard, i use diluted vinegar water to remove lime scale from the water every once in a while, and it does the trick and i can keep it clean without lime scale.

        . Is what virtually everyone who comes through the door says – i say ‘virtually’ ‘cos it’s mainly the women: it’s just not hard and blokey to admire someone’s kettle 😊i was a bit worried about the detachable lid thing before it arrived, but in actual use it’s really intuitive and somewhat easier than trying to fit your tap into the space between spout and lid on a normally hinged kettle, although a warning: water will condense on the underside of the lid, so exercise reasonable caution if removing it soon after boiling. It boils quickly and looks gorgeous whilst doing so – no illumination of the kettle bowl itself, but an oval blue light just above the base unit shows you its powered on. This is a review of the white version of this kettle by the way, which at time of writing appears to be unavailable.

      I have owned this kettle for 5 years, the longest i’ve ever owned a kettle. Usually, they fail after about 2 years or so. Not this one, and it’s well used every day. Easy to descale, i use lemon juice, put it onto boil for a few seconds and the boiling plate is good as new. I had to replace the lid which, probably due to so much use broke, i contacted the manufacturers, they sent out a new one which i received shortly after ordering, so really good service too. I really recommend this kettle, and when it does eventually go i will replace it with the same, absolutely.

      The base cracked within a couple of months. I see the product is only eligible for return within a month.

      After unpacking and rinsing several times, there is no plastic taste which is common with many other kettles (and the reason we replaced the old one). The high 3kw power capacity means it boils quickly. The removable top is possibly a good point although it can lead to scalding – best to remove it carefully whilst the kettle is hot.

    I do like this glass kettle, but i’ve given only 4 stars because of the stupid lid. My firstteam glass kettle was much easier to open (i think the lid was hinged); this one has to have two little buttons squeezed before the lid can be lifted, exposing one’s hand to steam if the kettle’s just boiled unless done very quickly. Then it has to be placed very precisely to fit back on. I’m used to it now because my last glass kettle was like this – in fact the reason i had to replace it was because the buttons got stuck and made it difficult to open. I also miss the way the water was illuminated by an orange light in my first glass kettle, but all the ones that illuminate now just have a blue light. This one doesn’t illuminate the water at all.

    Easy remove lid, i use filtered water to reduce the risk of developing scale and i wipe the inside dry after use. After years of using plastic i felt that perhaps it is unhealthy contacting the boiled water so glad i reverted to glass the taste of a cuppa has improved. Very pleased with this purchase.

    I have used the kettle constantly since my purchase. It is a little noisy but the other benefits far outweigh that small negative point. The style of the kettle is very nice. I love the shape of the sturdy glass body and that i can always see how much water is actually in the kettle. I also am very pleased that the markers illustrate from one cup up to quite a substantial full kettle. When the kettle’s sturdy on off button is switched to ‘on’ , there is a nice reflective blue light that indicates the kettle is switched on. The kettle is efficient and extremely fast to boil water. Thank you soooo much for such a wonderful kettle design. I would be pleased to try out /buy further visicook products as there appears to be a team of thoughtful practical disigners at work on their products.
