I am well known for killing kettles in our house but to be honest I usually just go out and replace a kettle with a cheap one and don't take time to look around for a good deal, but about four weeks ago I thought that I would spend my money on this kettle.
The Morphy Richards 43836 Accents as I spotted it in Morrison's for £19.99 and knew they were supposed to be a lot dearer to buy in other shops. They retail from £29.00 up to £49.00 depending on where you buy them from , so when I saw it at £19.99 I jumped at the price, as it was only a matter of time before my value Morrison's kettle would give up the ghost anyway.

I am really impressed with my purchase and it has been going strong for four weeks now. The Morphy Richards Accent kettle is a nice stainless steel kettle it's a sleek and stylish design not like my old plastic kettle thats now in the bin.
It holds up to 1.7L of water but why you'd need to boil this much is beyond me as that's a lot of cups of tea. It comes packed in a cardboard box with the picture of the kettle on the front so you know what you are getting before you buy.

The kettle has a lid with a spout and has a cordless base unit, the kind where you stand the kettle on the base to switch it on.
It has an on off switch that lights up blue when the kettle is boiling and it switches itself off when it reaches the right temperature. The thing I like the most about it is that it has a water level indicator and these are on the side in the see through window.
They have a 2 cup and a 4 cup level, which is great for when your making a cup of tea for just two people as it helps to save on electricity. It goes right up to a 8 cup level too just incase you need to make that many cuppa's.
This is fast boil kettle so it doesn't take long to boil about three minutes for two cup level, so your not waiting ages for a brew.

When you first get your kettle you have to boil it once and throw the water away to clean the kettle and because it hasn't been used before, once this is done it's ready to go.
There is a button on the top of the handle to press which lifts up the lid so you can fill it with water. No struggling with pulling the lid up like on a plastic kettle. The on /off switch is at the bottom of the handle.

It also has a water filter fitted near the spout so that no impurities get in your cuppa when pouring the water, this can be removed when cleaning the kettle. Although it's a fast boiling kettle it is slightly noisier than other kettles but it's very rare I stand at the kettle while it's boiling I usually switch it on and carry on doing what I was doing until it boils.

I like this kettle and am happy to recommend it to you, I like the design and the fact that it's stainless steel and easier to clean. The water level indicator for me is a must as I hate wasting energy and the price was great at the time I bought it.
10 out of 10 from me for a great kettle from a good named brand.
