I bought this kettle for one reason and one reason only, it's pink! I live with my husband and three sons and we seem to have a house full of blue, the kitchen was the one place I could fill with pink things. Therefore on my search for pink accessories for the kitchen I came across the Morphy Richards Accents Kettle.
I have had this kettle for almost two years now and it has been used an awful lot. We love tea in our house and the kettle boiling is a sound you will always here in our kitchen. After two years the kettle is still working but is starting to look a bit grimey.
The kettle has a 1.5L capacity and on the front there is a see through part where you can see the water. This is marked 2, 4, 6 and Max. indicating the amount of water required for the number of cups you want. I find this inaccurate as we have big cups and need to fill with water to the 2 mark just for one cup.
There is just two buttons on the kettle, one to switch it on, which will automatically click off once the kettle has boiled. The other button is to open the lid at the top in order to fill the kettle with water. On my kettle this has actually broken and the button will not open the lid. I therefore have to fill with water through the nozzle, not ideal.
As I said my kettle is looking at bit grimey now, I do clean it all of the time but it just doesn't look nice as more. This kettle also gets a lot of limescale and needs de-scaling all of the time, in it's defense it does get used a lot.
After writing this review I have realised that maybe the Morphy Richards isn't as great as I thought it was. It has worked constantly for the last two years and it is my favourite colour pink. However, with the limescale, grimey appearance and broken lid maybe it is time to change my kettle. Will I get another one? Probably not, but I will look for another pink one.
This fantastic Morphy Richards kettle is the perfect accessory to any kitchen, particularly with the matching Accents toaster. It features a 3.1KW element for fast boiling, 1.5L capacity, a handy removable limescale filter and hidden element for easy cleaning, cordless base, and fail-safe automatic switch-off.
