Boils water, what more can you ask for in a kettle?!

Advantages: Cordless, cheap
Disadvantages: Has developed a leak when pouring (after more than a year of daily use)
When we moved into our new flat, we needed some cheap kitchen stuff so headed to Tesco to see what they had to offer. At just a fiver, this kettle caught my eye and we decided to buy it. Having just had the expense of moving, we decided we didn't want to be spending too much and hoped that this kettle would do the job.
The kettle itself is made of white plastic and has a rounded body with a clear plastic bit so you can see how much water is in the kettle. It's a cordless kettle which is great for the price, but the cable between the stand and the plug is quite short, which in our small kitchen is no problem to us. The on/off switch seems pretty sturdy and lights up when the kettle is turned on.
We've been using the kettle daily for 18 months now and it's still going strong. The only problem is that it's developed a leak when pouring so when pouring hot water into a mug for a cup of tea, the kitchen side gets a bit wet too. We can't see any cracks or anything so assume it must just be that the lid isn't quite as tightly sealed as it was when we bought it.
Overall I'd definitely recommend this kettle. It boils water, doesn't look too shabby and is very cheap. When it packs in, I'll definitely be heading back to Tesco to buy the exact same kettle again.
Summary: Great kettle for the price. Would definitely recommend it.
