5 Reasons For for Choosing the Smeg KLF11

Non-Drip Spout

The Smeg KLF11 has a non-drip spout, and so does the Breville VKJ946, however the Brentwood Appliances KT-1618, the Brentwood KT1620 and the Dualit Studio do not. More ...

Whether the kettle has a spout that is specially designed to be easy to fill from the tap.

A well-designed spout means there is less chance of a spillage when filling up the kettle.

Boil-Dry Protection

The Smeg KLF11 has a boil-dry protection (as do the Breville VKJ946 and the Dualit Studio), but the Brentwood Appliances KT-1618 and the Brentwood KT1620 do not have this feature. More ...

'Boil-dry protection' is a special system that stops the kettle from boiling if there isn't a minimum amount of water in it.

Running the kettle without any water in can damage the appliance and stop it from working. Boil-dry protection stops this from happening.

Filtering

The Smeg KLF11 supports filtering (as do the Brentwood Appliances KT-1618, the Breville VKJ946 and the Dualit Studio), but the Brentwood KT1620 does not support this feature. More ...

'Filtering' denotes whether the kettle has a special filter to stop impurities being introduced to your drinking water.

A filter on your kettle means that the water produced by the kettle is as fresh and pure as it can be.

360° Rotational Base

The Smeg KLF11 has a 360° rotational base (as do the Breville VKJ946 and the Dualit Studio), whereas the Brentwood Appliances KT-1618 and the Brentwood KT1620 do not have this feature. More ...

A rotational base is one that allows the kettle to be put down at any angle, so there's not just one way that it fits with the base.

A rotational base is helpful, since it allows you to put the kettle back on the base from any angle or rotation, meaning you don't have to fight with the kettle to get it to dock with the base.

Cordless

The Smeg KLF11 is cordless, and so are the Brentwood KT1620 and the Breville VKJ946, however the Brentwood Appliances KT-1618 and the Dualit Studio are not. More ...

'Cordless' denotes whether the kettle has a power cord attached or not.

Cordless kettles are helpful because they are far easier to use and pour, without worrying about getting caught up in a power cable.

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Smeg KLF11

0.3L Smaller Water Tank Capacity

The Smeg KLF11 is a 1.7L electric kettle, and so do the Brentwood Appliances KT-1618 and the Breville VKJ946. That's 0.3L smaller than the Brentwood KT1620 (2L) and 0.2L bigger than the Dualit Studio (1.5L). More ...

'Water Tank Capacity' is the maximum capacity of water that the kettle can hold at a time.

A bigger water tank means that more water can be heated at once, meaning you'll need to fill up the kettle less.

Removable, Washable Anti-Calc Filter

The Smeg KLF11 has a removable, washable anti-calc filter (as do the Breville VKJ946 and the Dualit Studio), however the Brentwood Appliances KT-1618 and the Brentwood KT1620 do not have this feature. More ...

Denotes whether the kettle has a special reusable filter to stop impurities being introduced to your drinking water.

A removable, washable filter means that it can be cleaned to keep it at peak efficiency, and can be used multiple times, saving you money.

Does Not Have an Adjustable Thermostat

The Smeg KLF11 does not have an adjustable thermostat (As do the the Brentwood KT1620 and the Dualit Studio), whereas the Brentwood Appliances KT-1618 and the Breville VKJ946 do. More ...

'Adjustable Thermostat' denotes whether you can change how hot the kettle heats the water to.

This is useful if you don't need boiling water, and makes the kettle more versatile.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Smeg KLF11 has only received a Kagoo Score of 72, but the Brentwood Appliances KT-1618 scored 81, the Brentwood KT1620 scored 85, the Breville VKJ946 scored 82 and the Dualit Studio scored 80.

More Expensive by $118

The Smeg KLF11 is $111 more expensive than the Brentwood Appliances KT-1618, $118 more expensive than the Brentwood KT1620, $87 more expensive than the Breville VKJ946 and $45 more expensive than the Dualit Studio.

Not As Many Stockists

The Smeg KLF11 is only stocked by 1 retailer, however the Brentwood Appliances KT-1618 is stocked by 2 stores and the Brentwood KT1620 is stocked by 2 shops. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this electric kettle.
Older by Over One Year

The Smeg KLF11 is 10 months older than the Brentwood Appliances KT-1618 and 17 months older than the Dualit Studio.
