No longer will you be using other methods to heat your water, as this kettle heats up quickly in 6 to 7 minutes. All of the material is BPA-free and easy to clean from the inside out which is perfect for removing limescale build-up.

To filter out limescale, it has a built-in stainless steel filter which can be removed for easy cleaning. With 3000 W of power, its rapid boiling means that you don't need to wait long to brew a cup of tea or coffee. Besides that, it will automatically shut off once it reaches 100°C, guaranteeing safety.
The detachable limescale filter will give you calc free water, which can be removed for easy cleaning and maintenance. Overall, we love the geometric design with bronze and blue colour combination to add a little bit of vintage-contemporary decor to your space.
The geology of the area from where your water supply comes determines the water hardness in your area. Rainfall is naturally soft, but as it permeates through rock, various minerals such as calcium and magnesium dissolve into it. Counties in the south of England tend to have the hardest water in the UK, especially around London and Kent.
When the water evaporates, minerals are left behind causing limescale to build up. This is especially a problem for kettles since limescale tends to occur around heating elements, causing damage over time.
