Using the dumb version with mechanical button. Read reviews that the smart version touch sensitive button stop working easily. The inside got machine oil smell, boiled water also got the smell. No more smell after scrubbed with dish detergent.
Bought china 3 pins plug version from qoo10 before local version came out in mi shop. Better to buy local version with uk 3 pins plug.
Con: The cable is quite short, i think only 1 meter long.
Burnt a few cheapo 3 pins adaptor plugs. No actual fire, just that there was brown mark on the adaptor and cannot work. i think the cheapo adaptor plug metal contact area is very small and thin, metal contact melted by the high wattage. No more problem after using dedicated china 3pins to uk 3 pins adaptor.
Most importantly is whether the internal parts are all made of metal.
Most manufacturers like to cut corners and the top of their electric kettle are made of plastic.
Over time, the heat from the boiling water will cause the plastic to leak chemicals into the water.
The internal parts that comes in contact with the boiling water should be all metal.
This includes the spout.
