“ Kettles „
As I've always wanted a stainless steel kitchen (and also because for some unknown reason I keep buying kettles ~ 6 on the last count!) I opted for a 'Russell Hobs - Carousel'. As the old man is left handed, I also wanted to make sure that it didn't have a cord and could be picked-up from any angle, ~ so he couldn't get out of making me a cuppa! The handle is placed directly on top, so for all you lefties, it's just right (pun intended). I bought this Sturdy/Chunky kettle from 'Makro'(which is a warehouse store on the outskirts of Bristol) for 37.99, quite expensive, but this kettle has now lasted about 10 months (which is good for me!) It does have a washable filter, but I seem to be cleaning and descaling it anyway :-( (although not as often as some others) This seems to be the only downside to this kettle, although apparently it has an 'optec disc' rapid boil thingy ~ which means that you can put enough water in it to make a cup of tea and it won't boil dry or you can fill 'er up and it won't take long to boil (about 1-2 mins). Please remember to put the lid back on, why? because I had a kitchen full of steam because i forgot - duh! PS. It's now selling for 48.99 in Argos, but it's still worth it.
Hi There, Is there anybody out there who can help me ,my sister-in-law is collecting Baby Blue items for her newly decorated kitchen easy i hear you say! She has found the Kettle, Sandwich Toaster,and all the Washing Up Bowls,Dish Drainers the one thing she cannot find is a Baby Blue Coffee Perculator. We live in Lowestoft in Suffolk there is not 1 to be seen anywhere in the shops here,she has tried Great Yarmouth, Norwich but no good it seems nobody makes one. Which brings me to my point why do these manufactures make only part of the set , i think we all like things to match in our homes don`t we?. If anyone out there can help i would be very grateful. Thank You
After having the same kettle for about 5 years which was full of limescale and even descaling it wouldn't get rid of some of the limescale, we decided to buy a new kettle. We live in a very hardwater area and when making a cup of tea there is always a film of scale which seems to float on the top of your cup. I looked throught the many catalogues that we have at home and decided to give this kettle a go, its very expensive but as we have a new baby I felt that some of the features would of been quite handy. It has a 360 degree swivel base, which is ideal if you are right or left handed, a removable washable filter, a scale resistant OPTEC disc element (which works so far !!) and rapid boil 3000 watt element. When you switch the kettle on it starts to boil immediatley and boiling a full kettle of water takes only a minute or 2. It has a concealed element also which would make descaling easier. We have had this kettle now for about 4 months and there is only a little bit of limescale inside, and this is very loose and can be removed. I would recommend this kettle to anyone.
