Morphy Richards 43775 I have always like the old style kettles and when I saw this one, I just had to have it, I will be honest and say it didn’t match anything in the kitchen, but hey it looked posh.
=The Kettle= The first thing I will say the kettle is of excellent quality, and it very well built, the body, lid, handles and spout are made of metal. The kettle is cordless, and fits onto a base to heat, the kettle has a 1.5 litre capacity, and a 3kw raid boil function, which is noticeable, it feels as soon as you have put the kettle on its boiled, which is great.
=The Water Gauge= This is located on the side of the kettle.
=Whistle away= The kettle has an electronic whistle on it, it just gives a 5 second sound when the kettle is boiled, but if you don’t like the whistle sound this can be switched off at the base.
=The minus points= Although I do love this kettle, there are a couple of minus points, that even though the kettle has an automatic shut off when the kettle comes to boiling point, the water still seems to boil for a few seconds. I find that the water comes out as a fast flow from the spout, so you do need to have a good strength in your hands and arm, due to the weight of the kettle, and the water coming out quick, otherwise it comes out over the mug and on the worktop, so there is a slight risk
=To refill= Although you are meant to refill the kettle through the lid, I find the lid bulky and heavy, I use the spout to fill the kettle.
=Would I recommend the kettle= I would recommend the kettle for anyone that wants a fashionable kettle, but would say no to anyone who has arthritic hands as you would not have the strength to carry it.
=For us= Unfortunately although the kettle did get some use, we found it heavy to use, so went back to the cheap and cheerful kettles
