If you have bought a kettle from Aldi, you need to check it now! It could be defective and needs to be returned to the supermarket.

Aldi has recalled one of its popular Special Buy kettles amid fears that a possible fault could cause scalding injuries.

The supermarket advised consumers who purchased its Stirling 1.7L Electric Kettle to stop using it and return it for a refund.

The handle on the kettle may become loose or separate from the body of the kettle, risking customers becoming scalded by the boiling water.


The kettle was sold nationally between 22 March last year to 13 June this year, and was available in various colours.

Aldi advised the faulty appliances have a PLU number, found on the underside of the base unit, corresponding with 58848, 60039, 60040, 60041, 56361, 56362, 56363, 58091, 58092 and 58093.

If you have a kettle with one of these PLU numbers, please stop using it and return it to any ALDI store for a full refund.

“Aldi takes product quality and safety very seriously and wishes to advise all customers of a recall on the following product,” the supermarket noted in a recall notice on its website.

Customers can contact the recall helpline on 1300 886 649 Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 6:00pm for more details.

  • Again? I brought an Aldi kettle 3 years ago that was recalled! How disappointing


  • I am concerned that these items are not subject to strict quality testing before they get sold.


  • We don’t have Aldi here in Tas, so no faulty kettles. The number or recalls lately have me a bit worried though


  • This is so silly, so dangerous


  • I wonder who the manufacturer is and if they are being distributed via a different company name in Aust. at all.
    Thank you for advising us about this.


  • Thanks for posting this information!


  • I dont have an aldi kettle but will passon the word


  • I don’t have one from Aldi but thanks for sharing. I will share with my friends who are regular Aldi shoppers.


  • Thank you for head ups, so glad we do not have Aldi here…


  • Scary! But my kitchenaid kettle had a recall for the same problem recently.


  • I would never buy appliances from Aldi, so cheaply made, go for the bigger and long established brands. I have a Breville glass one and it has not missed a bit for years.

    • Whoops, should have read ‘not missed a beat’, wish there was an edit function on the posting of comments.


  • Thanks for the heads up.


  • That’s a pretty dangerous fault!
