I bought this kettle to go with my new toaster and they both look great together. It’s a lovely kettle and looks fab.
A quality, attractive kettle – at a price. . I wouldn’t normally consider paying this much for a kettle but it was a perfect match for our refitted kitchen. It looks and feels a quality item and, having had it for several months now, seems easy to clean in order to maintain it’s appearance. Quick to boil but quiet it certainly isn’t – sort of likes to let you know it’s there and working. I trust it will last long enough to justify the cost.
Read these reviews before purchase. The comments on the loudness of this kettle are correct, it is noisy. As for scalding when pouring, yes if you hold the top of the handle steam comes out from around the lid and you will get burnt. I think you will soon learn not to hold the top of the handle. Apart from these issues i would recommend and am pleased with my purchase. Hier sind die Spezifikationen für die De’Longhi Icona KBO3001:
- Stylish pearl white cordless rapid-boil jug kettle with chrome detailing and gloss paint finish
- 360 degree swivel base and stainless steel concealed element
- 3 kW power and 1.7 Litre water capacity
- 3-level safety protection: auto shut-off when boiled or lifted and thermal cut-off
- Removable, washable scale filter and non-slip feet
Paying more for the design, nevertheless i love it. De’longhi’s icona series brings style to the kitchen, it’s sleek and very sophisticated looking. I love the 360 degree swivel base compared to most normal kettles where you can’t move the kettle around without having to turn the whole unit. The kettle has a filter which majorly helps prevent any lime-scale getting into your cups of tea/coffee, it’s also super easy to remove and clean. On average it takes around 2 minutes to boil 1litre of water which i personally don’t think is that bad. As for pouring the water, i’ve had no issues with dribbling be it pouring the water fast or slowly. There is one flaw about the kettle that may or may not bother some people, that problem is the water meter which is based directly behind the handle, okay so it’s out of sight and yes does look neat, but the problem is the text on the meter is centred. I don’t get why you would centre the text when it’s directly behind something, why couldn’t they have printed the text slightly to the side to make it more visible?. Well, whatever the reason is, it doesn’t bother me so much mainly due to the fact i know how much water i need to put in a kettle for a cup by the weight and just looking inside of the kettle. I’ve also read a few reviews mentioning about leakages and steam being condensed in the handle, now this is my second de’longhi kettle (same model, but different colour), my last one lasted me a long time and technically still works, but i didn’t maintain it well and let the lime-scale build up to much making it too hard to clean(lesson learnt), this is why i got a new one.
I must have a different kettle. I was very nearly put off buying this after reading the other reviews, but am glad that i ignored them. It is stunning, not slow to boil and not excessively noisy.

Beautiful, light and good quality. It looks good, and works well and is so refreshingly light for a good quality kettle. I had replaced another kettle which was starting to leak, but more importantly was extremely heavy and caused some members of our family difficulty in picking it up, especially if there was water in it too. This looks beautiful, is light and also boils very quickly. Like most kettles (i have had a few) it seemed relatively silent the first few times, but now it has joined the rest of them in being too noisy to hear a phone call in the kitchen – but it boils so much more quickly than the last one that this seems a very small price to pay. I am so glad i changed kettles and would not hesitate to recommend it to others (especially if style, lightness and good quality is high on your list).
