I own this kettle and was really pleased with it, I love the shape the colour(Its black like this one)and its nice to use, the whistle sounds more like a bomb dropping from the sky than a kettle, but its OK. Just after Christmas 07 the paint started peeling off and its starting to look tatty so I came onto Amazon to buy the stainless steal one and discovered the reviews, hardly anyone had a good thing to say about the brand as a whole. I think I shall look for another type other than Morphy Richards. Thanks everyone you've done me a favour.
Since writing this review, I contacted Morphy Richards and they are sending me a replacement in stainless steal. Will see how long it lasts.
Watch this space!
They sent another black one and...
Kettle number 2 is going through the same, the black paint is not just peeling off but practically falling off! Have revised my star rating down to TWO STARS. I am going to write again and complain. The plain stainless steal one would be a better buy, at least the paint wont come off!
Well I did write and...
They sent yet another!!!
Definitely cant fault them for service but haven't chanced it this time. Left it in its box and bought a Breville!
