      Disadvantages

      On my list of serous contenders for my new kettle.

      This is a rather elegant kettle ,it is definitely a case of form and function and we are seriously considering buying one for use at home. I work as stewardess on a power boat and we have been using this kettle for at least 3years without any trouble.

      It is a jug kettle with a 1.7lt capacity and a concealed 3kw element so you can make a good few cups of tea from it. It sits snugly on it´s 360degree black base and does not whizz around the galley counter unless it is very bad weather. In which case you hold it while it boils. The lead can be extended from the base of the kettle which also has a diode which glows red when the kettle is working.

      I like kettles that switch on at the base rather than at the top of the handle which gets rid of the potential of accidentally switching the kettle on when it is empty by catching the on/off switch when placing the jug back on the stand . The DeLonghi is designed this way so that is another mark in its favour. I also like that you can take the top right off and hold the kettle directly under the tap so it doesnt splash as you are bouncing about. The spout really is too small to use for filling it up but this is redeemed by the fact that it is a great pourer and I have never yet poured boiling water over my fingers. There is also a removable limescale filter.

      The Argento finnish is great you just wipe it over ,in fact I would like the whole boat in that finnish please!Only the spout and the lid are a high polish but I can live with that. The handle is black and easy to grip and all in all it is a jolly good kettle.

      DeLonghi have probably updated this model since we bought it (it costs around 25pounds I think)but if the newer models are as good as this I would recomend them ,it has hard treatment from us and normally travels wedged in the dishwasher where it cannot bounce about and remains a good looking ,hard working kettle.
