Russell Hobbs 15082 Blue Illuminating Glass 1.7 Litre Kettle
This is a great improvement on the Krups kettle it replaced which went bang and ceased to work.
The blue light is both attractive and useful because it's easy to see that it is turned on. The lid opens without any difficulty for filling which the Krups didn't. As it is made of glass it's easy to see the water level and what is happening in the heating-up process. The interior is designed for easy cleaning; descaling with a recommended agent was effective.
It is simply designed with no unnecessary gimmicks and does exactly what I want it to - boils water for tea. Why pay more?
