Advantages: Stylish and not too expensive
Disadvantages: Cannot see water level
We had our Tefal Elegance Jug Kettle a few years ago now but we have many kettles since then and a fair few before as well. My other half has a thing about kettles and she changes them a lot, though I am not sure why as I am quite happy with a kettle that just boils water. We have since donated this kettle to the office where I work and it is still going very strong.
I think this kettle cost us somewhere in the region of £25 and it is very elegant looking and stylish into the bargain. It pours very well with no drips and it is easy to direct the flow into the cup or the teapot with accuracy. It is made of brushed stainless steel and would look great in most kitchens. It is weird as I remember this kettle flashed green when it was in operation and I think most of us are used to seeing a red button to indicate it is on. Also, you have to push the button UP for on and DOWN for off - completeley the wrong way round to my way of thinking.
This kettle boils very quickly and is quite quiet when in use. It has its filter hidden in its lid and a concealed element so cleaning it is very simple and easy.
The downside to this kettle is the fact that you cannot see how much water there is inside unless you actually take off the lid and when it is new the lid is quite tough to get off and it sticks a bit.
Stylish looking ketttle thoug and one I can recommend. ..
