Advantages: Cheap, looks good, boils fast.
Disadvantages: Cord is short.
Last year the kettle in our caravan blew up and we had to get another one in a bit of a rush whilst we were away on our holidays. We went to the nearest supermarket and literally picked up the cheapest kettle we could find baring in mind that we would only use this kettle whilst on holiday.
So this kettle was in it's usual blue and white striped Tesco Value box with no frills. It looked simple and basic, ideal for what we needed it for. It clearly states that it is a cordless kettle and has a total capacity of 1.7 litres. It came very well packaged and was white in colour. It didn't take is long to set the kettle up and we were very surprised to feel how sturdy it was considering it was the cheapest of the cheap. It also has a handy limescale filter which is very easy to remove and clean when the need arises.
You know exactly how much water you're pouring into the kettle as this can be viewed very easily to the left of the jug where you'll observe a filing gauge. I usually put enough water in to make 3 large mugs of tea or coffee and this process takes about 2 minutes to boil the water. There are no LED lights on it to indicate whether the water has boiled or not, but it will switch off automatically when the water has boiled. This kettle is very easier to clean, more so than our brushed steel one in our home kitchen.
As with most kettle bases it comes with little rubber feet that are very effective.
We must have used this little kettle approximately 50 times now and it's still going strong. I'd recommend it to anyone who needs it for camping and for those on a low budget such as a student.
Purchased from Tesco for £6 last year in 2011
Summary: Excellent value for money, does exactly what it says on the box with no frills.
