Vektra 1.2 Litre Kettle 5 "An excellent kettle" Catherine 20 November 2014 I bought a 1.7 litre version of this kettle a few months ago and am very happy with it. It keeps the water very hot exactly as promised; which is great for me since I often get distracted, and make frequent cups of tea. Minor niggles are that pouring the water can take longer than a normal kettle since the insulation allows only a small flow with the lid on. If I am feeling impatient I now take the lid off and then pour. It is heavier than a normal kettle, hence I am now buying the smaller version for my elderly mother for Christmas. Overall I am very pleased.
