When choosing a new kettle to replace a £70 Russell Hobbs one, the most important factor would be that it wouldn't drip and leek everywhere. This led me to look at the traditional style. This kettle is very stylish and looks good on the worktop. Doesn't command too much space either - very good considering it has 1.7l capacity (more than a lot of its 'stylish' competitors).

However the Dualit kettle is only £5 more expensive than this one and incorporates a water filter (we ended up buying a Brita filter) after several embarrassing days of serving guests cups of tea with floating limescale. It also has none of ... Read the complete review
