Haden corded jug kettle.
The builders, bless their cotton socks broke my kettle and they replaced it with this Haden corded kettle I am not ever so happy about it but at least they replaced my kettle without being asked.
This white auto jug kettle cost about £18. The guarantee is for 12 months.
A plug is already fitted to the lead. I find the cord/lead a little short .I am sorry I can find no info on the length and I can not find a measuring tool its about 30 cm long I guestimate .
This kettle is a tall jug with a water level gauge on the side. I find this useful. It will boil 1.7 litres of water.
The on off switch is located on the handle of the kettle. This is pushed down to start the kettle top boil and when the kettle boils it automatically switches off. My husband thinks it takes a long time to boil.
The spout is fine pours water without dribbling. It has a lid that fits on the top, which sometimes I find fiddly to put on.
Generally this is an adequate kettle, simple does its job. (it’s had plenty of use while the builders are here working.)
Thanks for reading. I shall go and use it now to make another cup of tea
Good op. We have a red Haden jug which dates back to the start of the 90s, more like the 80s if you were to look at it. Infact its the same one as pictured on here but we lost the little ball in the water guage and last year it was chucked out as the plastic guage began to crack at the bottom which eventually gave way due to a broken seal. Im surprised they paid so much for it though as this model in particularly is usually half the price. Is it a 2.2 kw ? Haden also improved the lid as the older models were prone to coming off and scolding users whenever the kettle was tipped over to pour. N

What more can you say about a kettle? I do believe that it is now law that all electrical products must be sold with a plug attached. We recently bought a new kettle, because it has a swivel base and whistled on boiling - the damn thing is driving me bats, I suspect it could get lost in my forthcoming house move.
