Tesco Value JK2
Advantages: boils water, cheap
Disadvantages: leaks water after a few months
First of all, this is a Tesco Value kettle so lower your expectations, it isn't going to last ten years like some kettles but it will boil your water for a quick brew. Quite appropriately, I am currently brewing a pot right now using this kettle.
In a white kitchen, this will look like a fairly sleek decent but low cost kettle. There are no logos on this kettle or anything like that but it is a plain, fairly ergonomical looking kettle.
Filling the kettle is well filling a kettle, you lift the lid and pour water in from the tap. It does seem to me to be a fairly slow kettle for boiling water, so much so that I will walk away and come back in 5 minutes when I am certain that it will be boiled. For some this may be an issue, for me it is a minor inconvenience.
You can pick this kettle up for around £5-£10. This is definitely in the budget range and for this price, you can make tea or whatever you fancy for twelve months most likely before you experience any issues.
My current version of this kettle is my second version however with both kettles after several months of use, it has started to leak when pouring boiling water out of it. I think this is a design flaw with a slightly loose lid which seems to leak water. This can lead to burning yourself so be careful and get a new kettle when this occurs, especially if still under warranty.
A decent useable kettle but don't expect it to last your lifetime. At the end of the day, it's a kettle.... and it works.
Summary: It's a kettle
