I am a big tea fiend! Even when it was hot a lovely warm cup of tea is a nice treat. I definitely need a kettle, I couldn't just cope with heating water on the hob so when my last kettle broke, I put up with heating a pan of water until I could get out and pick up a new one. This was the one I chose as it is quite stylish and it has a pleasant look to it.
There is a lid in the top for you to fill the kettle up with which has a lid release button. The kettle is black and there is a see through glow window that looks very funky when the kettle is boiling.
I have had this kettle for around 6 months and I am having absolutely no issues at all. There are no issues with sound at all and I think the kettle is very quiet, I always know when it has boiled though so that is a good point.
The kettle sits on the work surface and it looks very smart. The kettle is of modern design and it fits in nicely with the decor.
The kettle can take 8 cups of water so you can make a large round of teas. The kettle can be filled in the spout or it can be filled in the large section where the lid is. You can see how much is in the kettle too so there is no risk of it boiling dry. The kettle is powered via the mains and it is cordless so this makes it easy for filling and pouring.
The kettle sits on a base and it is the base that is wired up to the mains. The good thing about the base is that it can be splashed and things so you don't overly have to worry about it.
The kettle is a quick boiler, by the time you have got out the tea bags and milk, the kettle is ready to be poured. I make really good tea and its all because of the order I do things but having a kettle that boils water so well is a big help.
The kettle cost me £20 from Argos I think so I was quite pleased with this pice. It looks like it is worth a lot more than this so I am pleased with it. The kettle is 1.5L so it's big enough for the family to use. I tend to have 3-4 cups of tea at home so I need something that will heat the water up quickly. This is an excellent option for anyone looking to buy a new kettle.
