I like this pyramid-style kettle a lot: it's robust-feeling, an attractive design and together with the matching toaster looks very smart in our kitchen. The 360 degree base is handy - making it easy for both left- and right-handed people to use without descending into a war over kettle orientation. The water level indicator isn't the easiest to read as it's quite dark and doesn't stand out especially well against the shiny grey-black of the kettle's walls, however the position of the guide is well thought-out. Having this along the back of the kettle is neat and equally useful for left- and right-handers. The cable length is adjustable, as you can wind part of the lead around the inside of the base if a shorter length of flex is required. The kettle boils quickly, though is a little noisier than our old Breville model.

To date, the only problem we've experienced with this is that the handle for the lid (which is made of metal, with a rubber ring around the inside) can get quite hot.

Before buying I'd noticed a few complaints about longevity amongst the reviews on here - with some people's kettles developing faults within a time frame of significantly less than two years. It therefore seems worth noting that (as long as you register with Morphy Richards within 28 days) there is an extended manufacturer's warranty covering this product for 2 years from purchase.

PROS

- Stylish design
- Strong build
- Boils quickly
- Choice of colours available
- Other matching appliances available
- 2 year warranty

CONS

- Water fill indicator could be clearer
- Handle for removing the lid can get quite hot

It's a lovely shade of purple which is the most important thing to my wife.
It boils fast, doesn't splutter when pouring from a full load of water, unlike my previous kettle, and is well balanced in the hand. Hits the spot!

Despite some gloomy reviews this kettle is functional and looks great. If you like the design and any of the many colours available this may be for you. Silent, fast boil and cut off is reasonable at boiling temperature. Old kettle did not poor well, this does, just watch the bursts of water if you poor still boiling water but this is probably inevitable for fast boil of this design.

Had this kettle for about 5 weeks. It's smaller that we are used to, but the weight is much better and love the styling. Not sure about the lid though as it appears to be pitting a little already around the edge of the chrome - same thing happened with my old Delonghi which only lasted a couple of years. We are a family of four and fairly heavy users, but even still! I am hoping for better things with this one. All in all, a nice little kettle, but longevity could be an issue.

Matches the toaster and the new look I want in the kitchen. It works as expected. Hard to see the water level when filling. Not so easy to dump out the excess water with scale bits. I've hade more issues with the firm and their customer service then with the kettle itself. Best thing was as I tried to buy direct from them but my order wouldn't go through and they wouldn't help me I gave it a pass. Then I found the product cheaper on amazon. Yeah amazon!!!

Purchased this product 12 months ago . the copper coating has started to rub off, think this is a manufacturing fault
contacted Morphy Richards , they do not want too know about the problem, said it was out off warranty . Iv'e had kettles for
years without any problems. will never purchase a product from this company again. purchased the toaster at the same time
the toasters copper coating is great ,totally different to the kettles coating ,

Lovely kettle. Everyone admires it but one has to wait a bit after it has boiled otherwise the escaping steam burns ones hands. Not a good idea for a kettle.

This kettle although very pretty started off lovely but it is easily scratched and paint comes off. Also there is corrosion in the water gauge at the back. It seems to have aged very quickly. So disappointed now.
