Firstly, as a jug kettle it's much better looking than most of the competition, as it's a clean uncluttered design executed in stainless steel.
Secondly I prefer my tea made from water a little below boiling and this kettle happily does 85°C, 90°C and 95°C as well of course as 100°C. It's also pretty fast and quiet, I just boiled enough for a mug in about a minute. So, for me, this is a good all-round kettle at for the price.
And, in fact, I've just remembered we put one in the kitchen in Banstead when we first opened and so far as I know, it was still going strong more than 10 years later!
