I purchased this product mainly for it's energy efficiency claims.
It is a good looking kettle which appears to be very well made.
My first thought was it has a quite heavy base compared to our current thin metal kettle.
I did a comparison of boil times and was a bit disappointed.
I mostly boil a single tea cup at a time and this test using the same low burner and water temp of 24 Celcius had the metal kettle steaming at 3:10 and the Turbo pot steaming at 2:45
however, the whistle didn't start until 3:10 so no real gain
unless I am watching the pot.
I'm sure there will be small gains if more water is required or faster boil times if the gas jet is turned up.
If you need to replace a kettle this is a good choice. If your main aim is to reduce gas usage you might be disappointed.
Pros: High quality, Durable
Cons: not ideal for small amounts of water
