Default Morrisons Basic Kettle 3.99

Hi all

I was in Morrisons (Sheffield, Hillsborough) the other day and noticed their basic brand kettle was only 3.99. This was a special offer not a mis-price. Normal price is 7.00ish.

Grabbed one for my son who's off to uni shortly. As he's likely to boil cheap noodles in the kettle I didn't think buying him an expensive one was a good idea.

Ideal for uni IMO.

Enjoy!
Awaiting inspiration.

I presume it is gas. Is it aluminium, like camping kettles are?

I got a Morphy Richards stainless steel kettle which has panel on side which lights up when kettle is boiling, reduced to 14.98 last week in Morrisons, http://www.morphyrichards.co.uk/Prod...?Product=43731. The value one I saw at 3.99 was white and plastic.

Why would anyone need a light to tell when a kettle's boiling?

We had a Morrisons basic kettle in our office kitchen, it lasted about a month before it started smelling like burning plastic whenever you boil it and then another 2 weeks before it started leaking from the power socket part of the kettle.

Personally I'd never buy one and wouldnt recommend them to anyone either (however cheap)

Luck of the draw I think. I had a basic one that's still going strong. I had it for two years then gave it to a friend.
Awaiting inspiration.
