Cookworks White Kettle
Advantages: It boils water! It is quiet, decent capacity, easy to clean
Disadvantages: None really, apart from looking a little cheap
I bought this kettle when I moved into my new house for around £10 in a sale at Argos. My parents have had all kinds of expensive kettles yet I never saw the point - all any kettle I have ever used does is boil water!
So, when I unwrapped this kettle and filled it to do the first of two or three boils you are recommended to do before you use the kettle I was quite happy that... yep... it boiled the water! It didn't take very long to do - I filled it up to it's capacity of around 1.7 litres and whilst I didn't time it, it didn't seem to take any longer to boil than any other kettle I have used before - I would guess at around 2-3 minutes.
The kettle has a light indicator to tell you when it is on - this is handy as the switch is quite low and as such you can knock it on accidentally and it isn't very noisy.
The kettle is very easy to clean and as it is plastic it doesn't look as dirty as quickly as metal kettles which you can see water marks from the steam on. You just wipe this kettle down every now and again and it looks fine. It is easy to descale as well, just using a descaling powder from your supermarket.
Overall, people wont comment on your fantastic kettle, but their tea will be hot, and that's what matters!
Summary: Nothing wrong with this
