Advantages: Simple Design, More than amazing value for money, long life span
Disadvantages: It does the job, can't find any faults.
I've had regular use with this kettle in our common room. Using it along with other students several times throughout the day for the past 6 weeks and its a life saver. Being a massive improvement to our common room this year and helping us keep "switched on" during those long days.
Its never really stood out or had that wow factor and eye catching apeal. However its discret and simple. Boasting a sleek plain white design with a small glossy finish makes it fit with any room style with or colour. Having this white finish also makes it extremly easy to wipe clean.
It comes with a flowing handle built into the main body of the kettle which has a seamless design but comfortable fit. Although if you have bigger hands it can be a little bit of a tight squeze. When using the kettle straight after boiling the handle can become a little warm but nothing uncomfortable and is completely safe. The fatness of the handle allows for a good tight grip so you can pour away with ease without fear of dropping the kettle even if its cheekly been filled past the max level.
To begin the boiling process you simply flick the metal switch beneath the handle and off it goes. However there are no lights or flashing timers to make him stand out or a small alarm to tell you its boiled. There's a small plastic window on each side so you can see how much water you've got in there or incase you want to watch the bubbles as it boils. Depending on how big your cups are we've normally got around 3 full cups just on the minium level alone!
The kettle is cordless! So its perfect for us students who need to move it and pass it around the kitchen side to allow everyone full use. However because its a value kettle the base has a white connector which must be properly alligned in order to boil the kettle. This can be fiddly and annoying when you have a full kettle to boil.
It averages around 2 minutes normally to boil and this has been consistant from when we first started using it. So its life span has been amazing as its still good as new for the price it retails at.
Its a massivily underated product and is one of the biggest values of money i have ever seen. It might lack a little in the fancy lights but a simple design is all you need for this product because it gets the job done. Holding a good amount of water to keep those cuppas comming.
-Finding the product-
I wanted to take a look at the packaging so i poped along to tesco to have a look. It comes in simple cardboard box with only a picture of the the kttle and the Value symbol, In store its very easy to find and is at a very easy size to carry and take home.
Summary: Ane xcellent kettle with amazing value for money!! with just a simple design.
