PerfecTemp Cordless Electric Programmable Kettle is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the temperature settings, but this is heavy I love the temperature settings for the various types of tea that I drink. Having the right temperature makes a noticeable difference in the flavor of the brew. The top opens wider than some other brands, making it easier to fill. Do not like the fact it remembers the setting and resumes where it left off when you set it back on the base. Some may like it, but I am used to my old kettle turning off once lifted from the base. It takes a bit of getting used to that this is still on and will resume heating, although the lights on the handle do provide a reminder, if you look. Generally I like it a lot but it is substantially heavier than other brands. With 1.2 liters of water in it it is heavier than some other brands with 1.7 L. That may be important to someone with low arm strength.

I've had this kettle for approximately 12 months now, however just recently the lights started flashing and the kettle won't do anything, I've tried unplugging the base from the power source however when plugged back in it keeps flashing lights

We have our kettle for almost 2 years now and the letters are worn off so we cannot always remember the temperature setting.  Could you please help me with this, as it is most annoying.
