My kettle has made zero deposits in the last 10 years if I would of checked the elements on the last water heater Im pretty sure they would of been clean. If anyone here has a kettle that has scale your water heaters elements would likely benefit from being removed and given a descaling dip.

0.5mm of scale is apparently a 10% efficiency hit 24-7 365 days a year.
A 2mm deposit = 40% increase in running cost

The elements probably burn out shortly after that point
