Morphy Richards 43774 Accents Traditional
Advantages: Looks lovely, boils quickly and it holds plenty of water.
Disadvantages: It's too noisy
I was very sleepy one morning over Christmas and I accidentally put my kettle on the gas hob instead of the saucepan... Needless to say, it melted and I managed to realise my mistake before it became serious. That being said, the kettle had melted enough to not walk anymore and so I started looking for a new one. The Morphy Richards Traditional Accents kettle is the one I ended up choosing.
Why did I chose the product?
My kitchen is quite traditional and I like things which look quite vintage. It is shaped like a curved pyramid with a circular handle which is black with silver edging. It has a silver metal spout and a silver removable lid with a silver hoop on the top. It has Morphy Richard written on the front in small lettering and it has a silver switch which you push down on to turn the kettle on. It has a small light on the front which indicates that the kettle is on. I chose mine in white because the pale colour suits my kitchen but it is also available in four other colours which is red, blue, green and black.
The kettle has a big capacity of 1.5 which is listed as being enough for 6 people. I vary rarely make tea just for myself so I wanted one that could make tea for quite a few people. It had a water level indicator to make sure you don't overfill it and a water window so you see how much water you've poured in. It had a rapid boil element to make sure that the water boils quickly which is important for me as sometimes I don't want to wait for my cup of tea! It also had a 360 degree base which means you could spin it all the way round, making it a left handed device for me and a right handed device for the others in my house. It also had a removable lime scale filter so you can keep the kettle nice and clean.
The kettle doesn't come cheap. I got mine off Amazon cost me around £40. It should be available from most good electrical shops and also from a range of online websites so if you shop around then you may get a better deal.
The kettle is easy to fill. You can either remove the lid of the kettle or you can fill it using the spout. The handle is easy to hold and it has a good grip so you don't feel like you might drop a boiling kettle which is always a bonus. The kettle does boil quickly, even if it's full so you won't be waiting for long. The kettle is noisy, a little more noisy than I would have wanted and it can be a bit intrusive if you are trying to have a conversation in the kitchen however it's over quite quickly so it's not enough for me to dislike the product. It holds plenty of water and I can comfortably make four large cups of tea and still have some water left over. It's simple to pour and none of the hot water splashes out on you. The water doesn't have a metallic taste to it so it makes lovely cups of tea. I do like how it looks because it is both modern and traditional so it looks lovely in my kitchen.
All in all, I really like my kettle. I like how it looks, it hold plenty of water, boils quickly and it is easy to fill and pour. If I had one criticism then I would say that it is too noisy when the water boils but it isn't terribly loud just a bit louder than I am used to. It is available in plenty of colours so there should be one that's suits you and I would happily recommend this kettle.
Summary: A traditional yet modern kettle which boils quickly and holds plenty of water
