Have had this SK950 Kenwood Kettle for years! It was bought as a present from my daughter one Christmas. Only spec I gave her was that it should be cordless. Never had a problem.I love the shape and style and it's easy to keep clean. Only downside: when I've got a house full of guests all demanding tea or coffee I'm unable to continually fill & boil as it switches itself off! Probably a safety feature to prevent overheating but a bit annoying!! Overall a great kettle! (read more)

Heating element on our Kenwood SK950 Traditional failed after 1 year. Element is zinc welded to base of kettle. Cannot be DIY repaired. Unable to find a local service center and would probably be uneconomical to repair. Will bin it! Not a very green product. Difficult or impossible to repair. (read more)

However, if you do not care about actually using your kettle, then I would recommend the Kenwood SK950 as it is stylish and I love chrome. (read more)

The Kenwood SK950 Traditional is part of the "Rapid Boil" range, the Kenwood, once tested, will not leave you puzzled as to its nomenclature. Let me assure you, this baby's fast!
In preliminary trials, she boiled water more efficiently than any other method in our suite of tests, including the controversial Harding Method. I was amazed by the almost synergistic results, in terms of liquid heat, when a cup of water was made to work in tandem with the heating element; results that could not be... (read more)
