What is it with pink appliances?
Member Name: simodewey
Disadvantages: Rusted, doesn't boil, water gauge inaccurate
What is it with pink appliances. Your girlfriend always wants them, yet if they are pink they can almost be guaranteed not to work. They must sell millions of these (my sister in law got about three for wedding gifts last year)
I may be being a bit unfair on the colour pink. If you buy an appliance based on its aesthetics then you are very likely to be dissapointed.
My main problem is the water gauge - it is woefully innacurate. If it says there's half a litre of water in there, then you probably wont be able to get half a cup. Also, when you fill it up, the water gauge follows a minute or so afterwards often leading to overfilling
It also keeps turning itself off halfway through boiling - meaning that unless you watch it and keep flicking the switch it never boils.
After a few months it had rusted
On the plus side. It has not electrocuted me. It has not burnt down the house. It has not burnt out all the electrics in the house. Thank god for safety regulations.
Summary: Would not buy another
