Metallic Taste: Many users of the Breville SK500XL Ikon Cordless Electric Kettle have reported that reusing the water inside the kettle gives a heavy metallic taste.

Heavy: The Breville SK500XL Ikon Cordless Electric Kettle weights 9 lbs.; this is slightly heavier than most other kettles in this range. It does hold a great bit more tea, because it is larger.
