We bought this Kenwood JKP105 Kettle for about twenty pounds about two years ago. What can I say? It's a white plastic kettle which comes in a cardboard box with Kenwood emblazoned across the front. It comes with no instructions whatsoever (not that I need them, as operating a simple kettle cannot be that difficult, can it?) but it would have been nice.
It has a1.7 litre capacity and clear sides so you can see how much water there is inside and if you need to fill it up. I didn't like the spout as it was difficult to pour and it dribbled a lot, and I hate that in a kettle. It has a medium length cord and it does boil impressively fast. The quickness of the boil is the best thing about it but it is so incredibly loud!! I mean REALLY loud, it sounds like rumbling waterfalls in the kitchen when the lever is just about to pop and it's a bit scary.
It looks decent enough and its easy to keep clean, but it does look very plastic and cheap if I am honest. Its an okay boiler but maybe better if you are on a budget, it is certainly not sylish or classy looking at all.
Not a lot more I can say about this really, I gave it to my step son when he went to university and he's really pleased with it so it's been going for a while as it has some heavy use.
Summary: Good for the Price
