      Disadvantages

      A great kitchen addition.

      Let's face it kettles are not the most exciting purchase in the world, but since my husband had some John Lewis vouchers gathering dust, we splurged on this one recently as I was instantly smitten by the vibrant, pink colour.

      Our boring chrome kettle was beginning to fall apart, so we set about finding a replacement and I was easily drawn to this one, quite frankly on its aesthetic qualities alone to start with. However, even I am not that shallow and so I backed up my fickle decision based on some good reviews I found!

      The kettle is made by Bodum, a cult brand that produces a range of functional, neutral kitchen appliances, as well as an uber-cool, bright, funky collection, which this item is part of.

      Also available in citrus orange, purple, lime green, beige, black and red, this kettle is a must for those wishing to vamp up their kitchen or add a colourful, modern twist.

      The kettle has a built-in water filter and a 1.7L capacity, meaning it is a good size, but still fits neatly into our small kitchen. Although its capacity is more than a lot of kettles I have owned, it looks no bigger, perhaps because of its well-designed, practical, cylindrical shape, meaning it holds more water.

      It is cordless, has a stainless steel element, and boils quickly and quietly, even when full. It has a cute little button on the top for effortlessly popping the lid open. I know that's a simple thing, but it's a real luxury for us as our last kettle required serious pushing and pulling and a degree of strength in order to wedge the lid off!

      Ok so we haven't had this kettle long so therefore I can't comment on how well it will stand the test of time, but so far both myself and my husband love it and its a real showpiece, which I never thought I would be able to say about a kettle!

      Some of the reviews I read remarked on how infrequently ths kettle needs descaling. I hope this is true but only time will tell.

      As this was bought with vouchers I can't remember exactly how much we payed for it, but it was around the £30 mark. It retails online from around £20 to £40, depending on the stockist.

      So far I can't fault this kettle, but will admit rather shamelessly that it was bought primarily for its fantastic design and not its functionality, although that is obviously a bonus!

      **Edit** Please excuse the irrelevent catagories in the quick bar rating as it would not let me publish without filling them all in!
