decent product , can be made lot better
Product serves its basic functional purpose, does not deserve the premium pricing, it is currently priced at. At a very basic level, in most kettles, measuring scale is is outside or some portion is transparent, so that the water level can be seen from outside, with minimum effort. In this Product, you have to stretch your neck while filling water, as the water level marking is inside the kettle. The designer could not manage both, which competitive brands have done. This reflects quite adversely on the kind of things carried out in the name of 'innovation' as well as the mind set of the approving authority, in Philips.
Also, as a suggestion, why not introduce colours for the outside portion of the kettle. This would give the product a lifestyle / aspirational appearance rather than just a functional product.
