Advantages: speed, easy clean, good quality
Disadvantages: spout design
Tefal Elegance was one of my oldest kettles. I think I bought 3-4 years back and paid a good £35 for it. Well, I know £35 is a bit too much for a kettle but I was a little new to buying kitchen appliances- and I bought most of the things that people recommended and the companies I had heard of. And tefal was well known for its small kitchen appliances. But until today, I don't regret paying so much for this.
Tefal Elegance is a stainless steel kettle with black good quality plastic handle, spout and the base. It is a cordless kettle and most of the wiring in the base can be wound around the inside of the base, so it doesn't look ugly. It has a concealed heating element. The inner part of the kettle is also steel when compared to some newer other brand steel kettles. The steel finish and concealed heat element makes it very easy to clean.
The spout has an attachment with filter/mesh but this makes that part's cleaning a bit difficult. This also accumulates the limescale along the years.
The shape of the kettle is very elegant- just as it name!
The 3 KW heating element really shows its heat- it boils very quickly. Ideal for my partner who always wakes up late and needs to have his breakfast in a hurry!!
It holds upto 1.5 litres of water. there is a plastic pointer in the inside of the kettle which shows the maximum level for water. If overfilled, i have noticed that the water pours out and starts collecting on the base.
Since this was getting older, I bought 2 kettles after this but none could keep upto Tefal's expectations. So I had to go back to my old one again- because even after years, it still works perfectly fine- just the stainless steel finish is a bit dull and some limsescale collection on the spout. Rest of it is still perfect. Now I am waiting if this comes on some offer to buy it again.
I enjoyed my cuppa tea with the help of my Tefal and hope you enjoy yours now. Tea anyone????
