I've owned about 5 kettles in my life and have never seen one that approached the quality and beauty of this Panasonic kettle. Everything about this product oozes quality. The oohs and aahs start when you take it out of its packaging and admire the smoky glass finish. It really is beautiful. It fit perfectly into our kitchen dcor which features stainless steel appliances. Unlike cheaper kettles I've previously owned, this one has a satisfying heft. The build is solid and reassuring. It may prove to be too heavy for some people once it's full of water. One really nice feature is the latch to unlock the top flap. It seems ridiculous to comment on such a minor piece, but it speaks to the quality of this unit. When pressing the latch, the door effortlessly glides open. The motion is so smooth that it becomes addictive to continuously open the top flap. The kettle operates flawlessly - like any other kettle. It seems as if it boils water faster than other kettles. It also is bulkier than other kettles. It definitely takes up more space on our counter than other models. Overall, this is a high quality product that looks incredible on the counter.
