I got this kettle secondhand almost two weeks ago and it's my first stainless steel kettle purely for home use (I have a camping kettle too). I've always had plastic kettles before and have usually handled plastic ones in other people's places so this review highlights the features in a comparative way. DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THIS KETTLE AND A 'NORMAL' PLASTIC ONE 1. The first thing I noticed was the shape; this is a conventional 1.7litre kettle but because it's round it's shorter than my previous plastic tall, rectangular ones. It looks smaller but it does take the full capacity and somehow feels lighter. 2. It comes on a round base and ... Read the complete review

We bought this when we moved house - it came in a combi set with a matching toaster and I think we literally popped into Argos, found the cheapest deal and bought it - it was simply to last our 'settling in period'..... Fast forward two years and this kettle and toaster still have pride of place on my kitchen side. Incredibly easy to set up - take it out, plug in the base, and away you go. Great lead length - unlike some stingy companies who give you a cord that barely reaches the work surface from the plug, I had to coil this around the handy wind up storage ring underneath the base - love clever little ideas which save cords lying around on the sides. ...

My partner moved to Stoke from Liverpool in April and has since been living in a small studio flat whilst we look for something a bit bigger for the both of us which can house all our stuff. When shopping for bits and pieces for her flat we didn't want to spend a huge amount but didn't want cheap and nasty things that we would undoubtedly have to replace as soon as we start renting together. As a result of this we bought the majority of things from Argos as they had the largest range of products at a reasonable price. One of the first things on the list, mainly because I'm a complete tea addict was a kettle, we managed to find a Cookworks Kettle in Stainless Steel in ... Read the complete review

The model I have is the Cookworks - MK2217SA which have been discontinued as far as I know, I did purchase mine about 2 years ago and it's done me quite well to last this long, although I'm thinking of purchasing a Brita filter kettle sometime in the near future. Anyway, I bought it from Argos for about £10 which was a bargain. My mum had exactly the same kettle and she had no problems with hers thus why i made the choice of this particular kettle. Over 2 years I dread to think how many cups of tea this old thing has had to make, but it nearly works like it did the day I bought it. There are only a couple of issues I have with it, and this has happened in ... Read the complete review

As mentioned in a previous review, when recently moving home I was required to purchase a range of kitchen equipment quickly and had very little choice and ended up shopping at a store that sold only cookwork items thus I am working my way through reviewing them as I have been using them for a few months now and feel that is long enough to form an opinion. Of course, being partial to odd cup, or in my case twenty cups, of tea per day the first item on my list was a kettle and a few of the cookwork models were in stock but I prompted to purchase this Cookworks Jug Kettle for £9.99. This is a stand alone kettle in a stainless steel which sits on a ... Read the complete review

Breville KT10 - Looks nice, boils well - perfect really!!! Model no longer available...and the kitchen window crack???
Haden 10329 - Easy to use, comfy handle, reliable Filter fiddly to fit (if you're daft enough to remove it)
Brita Acclario Select - Looks great, easy to see when the waters boiled which it does quickly once it's filtered. Leaks onto electrics and therefore is dangerous. Slow to filter water, steam can get onto hands.....
Philips HD4685 - 501 to 1499 ml - 2001 to 3000 W
Philips HD686 - Keep warm feature, range of temperature settings - not just boiling water! None, not even the price, you really do get what you pay for with this kettle.
