Advantages: Works fine
Disadvantages: Doesnt look that great. Plastic
In my new student accommodation, along with the Tesco microwave that I have previously reviewed, came this Tesco kettle. Another cheap addition to our kitchen that is currently falling apart. However, this product is one of the few things in this flat that hasn't completely disappointed me. And being such a huge lover of tea and coffee that is a major relief.
Again, just like the microwave, I didn't personally pick this kettle; however, I would have chosen something just as cheap. I don't really care how fancy my kitchen looks or how quickly and quietly it's going to boil. If it does the job then why spent so much more?
To open the kettle, you just lift the flap at the top and to close just click it back down. This seems sturdy enough and can't see it falling off any time soon. The on switch is at the top of the handle which just needs to be pressed down which lights the kettle up to show you its boiling. It takes hardly anytime at all to boil, depending on whether you've been sensible with how many cups you put it. It's a plastic kettle so may not last as long as a metal one and I can't see it lasting the whole year with the amount of people in my flat (especially when some people think it's a good idea to heat their soup up in it) but for now, it does a decent enough job.
For anyone who doesn't really mind how fancy there kettle looks and just needs something cheap then this is the product for you!
