This is a really lightweight kettle. Might be ok if you are going in a caravan where you want something light weight but this feels more like a toy version of a kettle than a real one. I am not sure how the others could have given this 4 stars. It heats up water, so I gave it two stars but this is not the usual sunbeam quality at all. It does not say it is plastic in the product description so they need to change that.
