This beautiful product from Philips has all the features expected from a modern kettle. It provides safety with its automatic shut-off feature and double boil-dry protection. Less important safety features are non-slip feet and hinged locking lid. Other features were added just for the comfort of daily use. Ergonomic grip is comfortable and prevents kettle from slipping out of your hand. When needed, you can easily place kettle back on its base. It doesn't matter which angle you will do it from as a swivel, 360 degree base let you do it your way. Probably the best part of this kettle is its power. 3000 Watts mean nothing else but the rapid boil. You won't wait long for your morning cup of tea (or coffee). Cleaning this item was made easier as flat heating element let you clean inside the kettle much faster. This brushed metal kettle is energy efficient which has particular meaning when you use kettle often.
