Hi, does it really pay off to invest in a good kettle ? I bought a John Lewis own brand one a couple of weeks ago & while I empty the water out when not in use it's already building up with scale inside and around the spout

Not sure about expensive kettles but the ones with the Brita filters are great. We have the Russell Hobbs one. Takes a bit of getters my used to. Remember to fill it back up after making your drink as it takes a while to filter the water thru. No scale and the filters last at least 3x as long as the timer reckons. We have very hard water, I was having to descale my old Kettle weekly

I'm not sure spending more on a kettle will stop it scaling up, that's more to do with the hardness of the water. What a more expensive kettle might but you is a better filter at the spout to stop the scale being poured into your cup.

Recently bought a Dualit. It’s brilliant AND made in U.K. where most that are advertised are made in China when you look into it.
