Andrew James Apollo Kettle | Electric Cordless Fast Boil Jug Kettle : It works well but a few design issues

I took my time researching the market for this kettle. It is early days yet and because of this i don’t know how durable it will be. Looks good, lightweight, pours well, easy to open and dock on base. The full handle is comfortable for my arthritic hands. I hope it will last longer than my former beautiful but clumsy kettle that cost almost twice as much.

Another quality product from andrew james. Having been driven bonkers by our previous morphy richards kettle which spilled all over the show when poured, my main priority was to find a jug kettle that poured cleanly. This does exactly that, and is also less noisy than its predecessor. Excellent value for money, and here’s hoping that after a very promising start, this will continue ro give us long, hassle-free service.

This is a nice looking kettle but i am diappointed with it overall. The fill level is located right behind the handle which for me is annoying and really shoud be on the side to mae it easier to view. When it boils, sometimes it takes an age to switch off and also it rocks badly on the base when boiling which is a concern. Upon reflection i regret purchasing this kettle and will probably steer clear of andrew james products in the future.

The water gauge is on the inside face of the kettle under the handle. It’s not lit inside so it’s almost impossible to see how much water is in the kettle because the handle is in the way. Luckily it has boil dry protection but this is a bit of a design flaw. The lid is metal, operated by an opening button on the top of the handle. You need to be careful with this as the lid gets hot and if you need to refill the kettle after boiling you have to take care closing the lid. Apart from that, it is a functional kettle and works well and is fast boiling.

Update 30-06-2018: the lid broke, one of the hinges snapped. 07-09-2016: looks nice and comfortable to handle. No peculiar ‘new kettle’ smell. Average noise and speed to boil. Only con comments are that the spout filter keeps falling out and that the minimum you should boil is 0.

It’s perfectly balanced which is important for arthritic hands. It is more than a stylish kettle for me because of this. It would have been 5 stars but the makers name smudged when using a kitchen anti bacterial wipe.I would never swap for another make ever again.

This is a good kettle for the price. Have only been using it for a short while so can’t comment on its durability but see no reason why it shouldn’t last. It is quite noisy but all my other kettles have been too. Perhaps a more expensive machine would be quieter but suspect it would have to be heavier.

Looks good, we opted for the white version to go with the white goods in the utility. And it works fine – boils water – quickly. The spout is a potential problem however. It isn’t the best design as its very easy to over-pour. I would not recommend for an elderly person / someone with an unsteady hand. The other design ‘issue’ is that the water level gauge is under the handle. The last place it should be for visibility. . Sturdy and good kettle but not recommended if you need a ‘steady pourer’.
