We have had our Haden kettle now for about 19 months. That is easy to recall as its only about a month older than our baby LOL Haden make a range of budget kitchen gadget type appliances and seem to be able to keep in business, so obviously they are not too dodgy even though not the most expensive on the market! That was our reasoning anyway :)And sorry for the truly dreadful pun in the title!!!!! (Blush!)

Our particular kettle is white with a greenish water indicator window. There is a red light on the on button near the base of the jug, which lights up to let you know it has been switched on. The cordless kettle sits nicely on its short corded base plate. There is a nonstick sort of looking plate on the inside which supposedly helps reduce limescale. I would say it does a pretty good job as I have only had to descale once so far. I knew when it was a good idea to do so as it cut out just before a full boil as the plate was too scaly to heat up properly.

It will not boil if empty, and it will also not switch on if not sat firmly upon its base, which IMHO are two excellent safety features. Even with a kettle full of water, it comes to a boil extremely quickly, so is most convenient even when having a coffee morning with your mates or trying to make cups tea and ReadiBrek for complaining family members (you know who you are!).

We paid £19.99 for it and though you may see rival kettles with original asking prices of the same on sale for a lot less, stop and consider why they may be on sale now for that £5 before you buy. The money we paid we consider well spent, and my only quibble is it doesn't get up and make the coffee for me to have in bed...I think that may just be laziness on my part though!

I have a Haden kettle which sounds very similar in description - however, I must have been sold a dud cos it seems to take forever to switch off when it has come to the boil!! I was going to do a negative review on it but maybe I should just take it back to the shop and tell them that mines is faulty! Very good op. Wend x
