Yes this is a relatively quiet kettle, but it stopped working correctly after about 6 weeks. The switch started to automatically turn off every 15-20sec even with cold water in it. Having to restart the kettle multiple times to get it to boiling point is frustrating and unsustainable. The one month Amazon return window has now passed, so there is no means (I can easily find) to contact the seller (Amazon) to return the product. Would I recommend it? Yes if it kept working but it hasn't.
