Our first one failed because it ceased heating. A second one leaks at the water level window, which cracked allover - crackleware.
Krups warranty is too short for this item which should last for years.
MADE IN CHINA may explain much of the problem for this German firm which is loosing its reputation with poor materials and craftsmanship (read more)

This kettle is a safety hazard. The water level indicator shattered whilst it was boiling and the water ran off the kitchen worktop and burned my little nephew.

As it is now out of its guarantee period not sure there is a lot you can do with it. Everything else works fine.
Not sure would buy again, expected it to last more than year and a half! (read more)

The (good) one I bought in HK was, I am pretty... (read more)

My Krups FLF39W is a good quick kettle, which looks amazing and like it costs a lot of money. Always wanted one of these and Krups are one of the better brands out there - Forgot Morphy Richards and Braun! (read more)
