A Fine Kettle
Member Name: bilbobaginz
Advantages: Good shape, material and ease of use.
Disadvantages: A bit of heat hits your thumb when releasing the lid.
Initially I saw Logik as a company producing only electrical goods, but then I came across this neat looking kettle in a catalogue a while back. I thought it would fit in with my new kitchen design and so decided to give the kettle a go - for £15.00 it seemed like the right price-range for such a device.
With a 1.7 litre capacity, the kettle is plenty large enough for the boiling of water for multiple cups of tea and coffee, and is ideal for use in cooking related endeavours. I like how the device adopts a small blue, luminous glow at the base of the transparent plastic measuring piece - this is more for show than allowing people to read the measurements at night, however it does add a touch a class to the matt black product. The measurements on the kettle are easy to read and give note to how many cups of tea/coffee any given amount of water inside will fill.
The handle is also plastic, and feels thick, bulky and stable to grasp. This is exactly what you want from your kettle, anything loose or spindly and there's a chance of spillage and possible injury. The button used to release the lid of the kettle is situated at the top of the handle for ease of use. Thumbs reach round nicely to click the hard plastic button - and occasionally you can feel a sensation of heat coming from the boiling water up in-between the two pieces of plastic. This isn't anything to be worried about, and I've encountered it with a few kettles.
To turn on the device you click the switch/lever at the base of the product attached to the kettle. The kettle lifts off a separate plastic base which not only holds the kettle steady when being heated, but actually provides the heat through a metal device in the centre. A relatively long power-cord (roughly 500mm) links the kettle base to a plug. This is long enough for the kettle to sit neatly on a kitchen side, but not long enough for it be anywhere requiring significant distance between plug and device.
The length of time it takes to boil water seems similar to other models I've had, just enough time for you to sort out a coffee with sugar and flick the television on before pouring.
Overall, a solid product with no faults at all. The price is just right and the quality of material, time it takes to boil, and shape of the kettle is perfect. An all round good product from Logik.
Summary: Just, Great!
