Tesco JK07 Jug
Advantages: GOOD PRICE
I have recently bought the Tesco Value white kettle and this is my review.
The Tesco Value kettle was the cheapest kettle I could find at the time I needed it which was only about two months ago. As it was just after Christmas time I was a bit short of money and needed a kettle as my other one had stopped working. I just wanted a basic kettle to keep me going until I could afford something a bit better.
The Tesco Value kettle is only available in one colour and that is white. It is all made of plastic and I think it is not that nice looking or eye catching but this was not to much of a problem for me as I just wanted a basic kettle.
The price of the Tesco Value kettle was under £5 which I think is a really great value price for a electrical item like this. I think I paid only £4.97 for the kettle.
The kettle is a 1.7 size which means it holds 1.7 litres of water which is quite a good size. Cheaper kettles can sometimes be a bit smaller than you are looking for so I was surprised that the Tesco Value kettle held as much water as this. I think it makes this kettle a good size if you have a family or a new born baby as you need a lot more hot water than if you lived alone.
The kettle is easy to use and you need to fill it up and boil it then empty the water out the first time you use it before you drink the water from it. I think this is the case with most kettles I have bought over the past few years. There is a clear window on the side of the kettle so that you can watch how much water you have poured into the kettle and this stops you from putting to much water in and it also stops you from letting the kettle boil dry when you have run out of water.
The Tesco Value white kettle is cordless which is good for me as I think it makes the kettle easier to fill up. You can just lift the kettle off the plastic base and fill it with water then put it back onto the base easily. The Tesco Value kettle is not to heavy to carry and this is probably cos it is made out of plastic. A lot of kettles I have used before have been very heavy but this one is nice and light.
There is a filter inside the kettle but I didn't use this much which is probably because I only used this kettle for a few months before I bought a new one. If I had used it for a bit longer then I would have probably had to clean out the filter. The filter sits inside the jug and you do not need to move it each time you fill the kettle so it does not get in your way or anything.
I thought that the Tesco Value kettle was nice and sturdy and I have dropped it a couple of times by accident and it didn't have any damage to it. The handle is chunky and quite big and I think this would make it easy for elderly people to use and the buttons on it are quite chunky to and there is nothing to fiddly to use on this kettle.
I do not think that this kettle is very fast when I compare it to the last two kettles I have had before it. The other kettles that I have had before have boiled the water much quicker than the Tesco Value kettle but then again they were all much dearer kettles to buy so I cannot complain to much about this.
I would suggest giving the Tesco Value kettle a try out and I thought it was a very good kettle for the money I paid. I have now bought a nicer looking kettle for my kitchen as I did not really like the look of the cheap looking white plastic of the Tesco Value kettle but it worked well and it was easy for me to afford to buy it when I was short of money so that is fine by me. I think it is a good kettle for young couples who are starting out in there own flat and are short of money or it is a good kettle to keep as a spare in case your main one stops working. I would buy it again if the same thing happened and was short of money again and I think it is a very good value kettle to buy.
