Lakeland Travel Kettle
Advantages: Compact, light, everything fits inside
Disadvantages: none that I found
Following my aversion to planes we made the decision to start taking the ferry when we return to Ireland to see the in-laws. With this longer journey (which to me is so much more enjoyable than plane flights) we always get a cabin and so that developed into me making the most of the time.
As well as the laptop that gets brought along so I can either get some writing done or watch a movie on, the additional piece of kit I insist comes with us is the travel kettle.
I remember travel kettles from when I was little and my parents had one that didn't seem all that Travel-designed due to be fractionally smaller than a normal kettle! Thankfully they have come a long way and the one we have is travel size.
The kettle weighs just 500g and is a good size holding 500ml which is perfect for two people. With a metal body and plastic lid and handle for easy handling.
The kettle comes with two small, sturdy black plastic cups (no handles), two small plastic spoons and another little plastic tub with lid for sugar or coffee. This tub has a built in divider so that you can store sugar and coffee together.
It does not just have to be used for travelling, it makes a great permanent kettle for people who have smaller households and keeps their energy usage down.
The two cups slip easily into each other and then the sugar tub stacks on top. These three and the two spoons all then fit perfectly inside the kettle to keep the whole thing neat and compact.
It comes complete with small a drawstring tote that the kettle fits snugly into (cable and all) allowing it to go into a bag or suitcase without taking up too much room.
Kettle Weight: 500g
Kettle Volume: 500ml
The kettle boils very quickly, so you are not left waiting for ages for a good brew!
We purchased our a few years ago and we've used it loads. It has held up well with all the travelling and even became our regular kettle for a time when our house kettle died. So we were able to continue with our brew making while we sourced a new kettle.
It is currently priced at £14.99 with Lakeland, reduced from £22.99
Lakeland supply great quality products at good prices, we have purchased many items from them into the Roomba iRobot vacuum and fold-down heated rack (both reviewed). We have never had any problems with Lakeland and they are quick to reply if you contact their Customer Services.
When our kettle arrived, the two spoons were missing we inquired if we could have some replacements. They couriered a whole new kettle set over (spoons were included this time) and took back the original. No hassle or issues at all.
If you are looking for a good quality, compact travel kettle this is a great buy.
Summary: A great little kettle
