A very well made kettle
The drawback with all kettles I have had with a built in filter is that the available space for water to be boiled is reduced
It's clearly been built well
The second example has started leaking in exactly the same way
feels well made
is very sturdy
Carried on using the kettle like this for a few more days then it broke completely
It looked a bit 'plasticky' at first
If there's no response then I would certainly not recommend buying this cheap plastic product that clearly is broken before even arriving
is very plasticky
