4.0 out of 5 stars Great design, 5 Sept. 2009
This review is from: Prestige Checks Art Deco Cordless Dome Kettle, 1.5 Litre (Kitchen & Home)
Looks great, hats off to prestige for doing something different with what is normally a boring household item. Its plus points- Definitely the looks, it was purchased to go in a craft room but somehow doesn't look out of place in my traditional style kitchen (maybe Ill get another!). Its not the fastest to boil but it is a rather pleasing purring noise up to the boil rather than the clicking, cracking and gurgling noises that all my other previous metal kettles have made. The fill level indicator is well placed in the handle so it does not break up the design and the amber switch light is a pleasing change to the usual blues greens and reds. It also pours nicely and is well balanced so my weedy hands are not straining! On the minus side the lid feels flimsy and is a bit stiff (this may be a bit of newness) but it fills through the spout very easily although the instructions say not to do this. The coating is not as seamless or glossy as it appears in the picture but its still pretty darn close to it! I cant comment on how long it will last as I havent had it long enough!
Prestige may have hit on a good idea here, I suspect other printed designs would sell very well, can you imagine a Kath Kidson Roses, Emma Bridgwater crockery prints, The Muppets (or other popular retro things) or some pretty fabric pattern printed over a kettle? Primary coloured kettles are done by everyone Im surely there's a gap in the market?
All in all Im very happy with it, congratulations you clever designery person!
