“3rd time lucky?...... No!”

Written on: 12/12/2014 by Hibby1 (2 reviews written)

Our 3rd Magimix just gave-up. Each of the 3 kettles we have had failed due to poor quality design and fittings. First time it was the leaking plastic window. 2nd kettle it was the lid - the shoddy plastic hinge is just not built to last being in a hot environment!. 3rd kettle had a broken filter housing after a few months and yes, impossible to replace. Then, the lid hinge has just failed, broken, just like the last kettle. Magi mix make a product that looks sturdy and heavily built. But when… Read Full Review

“Faulty off and on switch”

Written on: 28/11/2014 by RyleeGibbs (1 review written)

Really nice looking kettle but for the price the switch mechanism is poor quality at best, worse still you can`t buy a replacement switch. Easy fix though, gently prising off handle cover, remove screw below switch pull out switch, remove plastic L shaped part, superglue a 3mm piece of plastic or similar to the angled face that the switch comes against, reassemble and voila lid now opens… Read Full Review

“Excellent customer service”

Written on: 15/10/2014 by Spindrift1 (1 review written)

We, like others have had problems with this kettle, BUT we have had excellent customer service. The first kettle sprung a leak after 15 months and was replaced the same day. The second one had a failing thermostat after 2 years. At this point we thought, as over 3 years had passed by, Magimix would probably decline any further responsibility. So we wrote a polite letter with our tale of woes and received a new replacement kettle with a courteous, apologetic letter. It is a great kettle and as… Read Full Review

“Third kettle! Time for a different make.......me thinks.”

Written on: 23/09/2014 by uvSnow446 (1 review written)

On to my third Kettle, the first just after warranty expired lid broke, second just after warranty expired thermostat failed now the third kettle warranty has expired it has started to leak from the handle. How can Magimix justify the cost of these kettles when they only seem to last as long as the warranty, if these were £20.00 kettles I would understand but they are not! they may look good on the worktop but they are just not worth the money, think I shall go back to good old Russell Hobbs… Read Full Review

“Expensive, Heavy, Useless”

Written on: 25/10/2013 by PaulNW (1 review written)

We bought the Kettle from COMET and soon after the Thermostat would randomly decide to cut out as soon as it was set, needing to be held in place until it boiled. Now the lid will not open. When polished it looks good on a worktop but buy a proper kettle if you want to heat water unless you want to stand holding the thermostat button… Read Full Review

“Three and out!”

Written on: 27/08/2013

The product looks good and solid and customer care was very good replacing two under warranty after faults developed but when the plastic lid mechanism disintegrated we were offered a discount on another. Other reviews are consistent with our experience, looks like a quality product but but fails to deliver for sufficient time to justify cost… Read Full Review

Magi mix make a product that looks sturdy and heavily built. But when you get used to the plastic parts that easily break or wear down inside, you realise its poorly design and build and very difficult to repair.

“Magimix kettle leaking”

Written on: 20/05/2013 by Gizzybeard (1 review written)

We purchased a Magimix kettle as It looked good quality and the price certainly reflected this too. However after 3 years we noticed the kettle was leaking from the base on to the electrical base unit and worktop. We rang Magimix and they were aware of the problem but said it was out of warranty so they couldn't replace. This is a known problem… Read Full Review

agreed on the value for money ranking - leaking water and faulty thermostat switch seems to be the norm in this model and fail to understand how Magimix did not recall this model and replaced by new improved as after all, it's a pity knowing that the product seems durable and smart.

“Disappointing Magimix Kettle”

Written on: 18/05/2013

I give this kettle one star because it looks well on the worktop and has a good capacity, that's where all the positivie comments end. I bought a Magimix Kettle (stainless steel with cream inside handle), during a 25% off event at Debenhams. Staff assured me that there was nothing wrong with it and I was delighted to save a few quid. I brought the kettle home and put some water in it to boil, around half full, it seemed to reach boiling point very quickly but didn't shut off and I was a bit… Read Full Review

“Expensive rubbish”

Written on: 26/04/2013

I have nothing good to say about these kettles - the first one I bought developed a fault in the lid which meant it flew open during boiling and then didn't switch off automatically. I was sent another kettle under the guarantee but 18 months on this has started to leak from the bottom and around the electrical connection to the kettle. I rang to complain again and was told that as my original guarantee on the first kettle was now just out of the three year period they did not have to replace… Read Full Review

“Leaking!”

Written on: 14/04/2013 by Bollydolly (1 review written)

Have had my magimix kettle for about 18 months. I really wish I had paid attention to other reviews. It's now leaking at the base and has ruined my beech work top. Rubbish! There is also a lot of lime scale build up around the handle and water gauge, I live in a soft water area, so this has been unexpected to say the least… Read Full Review

“broken lid - again!”

Written on: 12/03/2013

Purchased one of these a few years ago as it was fast to boil and, at the price, was hopefully of the appropriate quality...........wrong! The lid came off within about 1 year of purchase (plastic base (hinge)connection snapped)(As an aside we handle things (our household items)with care - so no 'fair wear & tear' here) Good old Comet changed it for us without a quibble. Lo & behold - a year or so later - ditto i.e.lid broke - same problem Law of averages says there must be hundreds of these… Read Full Review

“Poor Quality”

Written on: 07/03/2013 by LBreview (1 review written)

I bought this kettle in 2008. From the start the lid was difficult to open. Toward the end of 2012 it started leaking around the handle. I now have an unsightly limescale buildup round the handle which needs attending to on a regular basis and is getting worse. Magimix UK have no interest in helping saying its a non repairable part and its out of warranty. So thats £80 for 4 years functional life. Very poor value. A pity as the stainless steel parts are perfect. A small re-design would make… Read Full Review

“Great Kettle by Magimix”

Written on: 05/03/2013 by Timlikestea. (1 review written)

After reading the reviews on the Magimix kettle Id like to stand up for Magimix as mine has been fantastic for over four years with none of the problems other users have had or any other problem. Until now, somehow the lid closes a little to one side allowing some steam out thus possibly prolonging shut off when it boils. Yes ! ive tried fixing it with a screw driver and popped the lid off (broke it more like. So Ive bought a new one, the same, as I think they are by FAR the only kettle to… Read Full Review

“Worst kettle I've owned”

Written on: 01/02/2013

We had a new kitchen and wanted stylish new appliances, so very expensive Magimix was chosen. It was by far the most money I have ever spent on a kettle, and it's predecessor still worked well after 15 years but did not look the part in the new kitchen. John Lewis supplied it with a 3 year guarantee. After 18 months it began to leak at the base and was replaced. No. 2 lasted about a year and then leaked in the same place. No.3's lid was very slow to open and close compared to the others, but I… Read Full Review

Yup, we have had the same kettle for four years and had to go back to John Lewis twice for leaking at the base and a sticky switch problem. John Lewis great, product quality dreadful (especially for the price) and if we didn't have a matching toaster (same brand, actually working fine) then we'd have junked the kettle.

I'm surprised John Lewis still sell it, but they are probably unaware of the numbers being returned to Magimix direct. I gather from some of the comments on this site that some people did not realise it comes with a 3 year guarantee, so have not claimed and binned it after a year. It would almost have been cheaper to go out for every cup of tear for the year! Shame on Magimix.

“Magimix stainless steel kettle and toaster”

Written on: 23/01/2013 by Scottishcarol (1 review written)

This is my very first online review but feel people should know about these items. Purchased kettle, toaster and coffee machine to fit in with new kitchen. Toaster has been replaced once and broke again. The handle wouldn't go down and the crumb tray wouldn't go in. Husband has fixed it but we had to purchase the parts and fit ourselves. Kettle has had no end of problems. Leaking, handle gets too hot to hold, lid iis loose and the light flickers on and off. Contacted magimix and they said… Read Full Review

Mrt333's Response to uneak444's Review

My first Brushed Stainless Steel Magimix Kettle developed a sticking lid within 6 months of use, very shortly resulting in it being jammed shut. Upon eventually managing to prise the lid's cover off (not recommended normally for obvious "health & safety" reasons), I found that the ratchet mechanism of poor internal design and worn, i.e. cheaply made. Having cleaned the kettle and perfectly replacing it all back together, the lid remained jammed shut once more. I continued to use it until the scale filter fell inside the kettle and had to be filled up via the spout. The water level markings faded and I used guess work when filling it up. The rubber seal of the lid became hard and allowed steam to escape when boiling, prolonging switching off (another safety issue here.) This kettle is 1 year old.
I bought a second one from John Lewis (not contacted them yet) because Magimix had modified the sticking lid problem. In looks it is identical except instead of the original heavy excellent quality rubber lined handle, it is now of hard black plastic and the lid's rubber seal is thinner and shaped so that it doesn't snag near the back where the handle is, when opening/closing. However, the base of the kettle leaks as does the handle, switches, etc. It appears to me obviously due to poor quality control and that the whole kettle needs to be re-designed. Don't make the same mistake I made in hoping extra heavy weight equates with quality of build, especially when it really is design over function. Early Siemens Porche designed kettle is a case in point. It still looks great but I will be spending my money elsewhere on a kettle that can safely deliver on function instead. AVOID!

“Just awful”

Written on: 19/11/2012

I am on my 3rd replacement kettle, 1st one the lid broke, second one blew up, third one was dead out of the box. This has got to be a brand damaging product for Magimix as a brand normally associated with quality and durability, I know people that have had their food processors for 20 years. Also giving it a 3 year guarantee makes you think it is a quality product. I'm afraid now that I have reached the end of my tether with the thing and it's now in the bin and I am of to Argos to buy one for… Read Full Review
