5.0 out of 5 stars Kettle classic now sadly discontinued..., 21 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Tefal Elegance 92051 Kettle, Polished Stainless Steel, 3 kw (Kitchen & Home)
I'm having to replace my esteemed Tefal Elegance 92051 kettle after over seven-and-a-half years of continuous service - simply because the built-in pour filter in the lid has disintegrated, and replacements (of course) are unavailable for this old model. None of the current polished metal kettle options from Tefal or its competitors come close to the Elegance 92051 in terms of ergonomic design (good sturdy handle and wide pour lip), fit-in-anywhere curvaceous appearance, and ease-of-use, so it's a difficult choice. Most sport push-button-lift lids which you just know are going to break within a couple of years; the Elegance 92051 has a good, gripable twist-and-lift lid which meant plenty of filling space, and no risk of extended attached lid colliding with tap stems, wall cupboards, etc.
Tefal made a mistake in discontinuing this product, or at least in not having sustained the basic design with newer iterations.
Can't find an Elegance 92051 on eBay or elsewhere. Had I had known that such an excellent product would be discontinued ((Should have guessed) I would've bought two or three more at Argos back in 2006, and stored them in the loft for future use. Adieu...
