Morphy Richards Accents Kettle
Beware if you live in a hard water area! but such a shame
I also have this kettle which is unsafe to use because of the water leaking from it onto the base, although I am taking precautions until i get a new kettle. Some of the paint by the water indicator has also blistered and come off revealing the chrome underneath. It is so dissapointing because I also have the 4 slice toaster and they look so nice together. I am so cross about it and rang Morphy Richards to complain, (should have done it weeks ago) they told me i should be descaling it every few weeks or at least every month if living in a hard water area, as it is the limescale build up that causes the seals to open up. Well they don't tell you that in the literature do they! I am unhappy because i either buy a whole new package or replace the kettle for the same model which i don't feel inclined to do. Would have been better had I have had a receipt to prove when it was purchased.

Really loved the colour and design but totally disappointed in the reality - the coloured finish has worn very badly and within less than one year was very shabby am now looking for a replacement

I have recently purchased your Morphy Richards Kettle & Toaster set in Copper. I am extremely pleased with the goods, the service and the value. I compared various retailers before I purchased them but none came up with your great value and guarantee. I would definitely shop with you again. Many thanks. Ms S Bullivant.

this too leaks blowing the fuse of the house in the process.
the matching toaster also had to be refunded.

I bought a Morphy Richards, relying on their reputation and long history of making electrical appliances. How wrong I was - I now realise that I have paid for the name only!
As other reviewers have stated, it has leaked from the water indicator, the paint finish is just a film rather than a layer. The lid is not designed to be removed without a wrench, I personally will never buy another Morphy Richards appliance.
A sign of the times? I had to have my Dualit toaster replaced within months of purchase. I admit that replacement is great - BUT I should not have had to complain in the first place.

My new accent
We love our new kettle, had had a look around the shops and loved the style of it, then ordered it from the John Lewis website as they did it in the colour we wanted. Looks good in the kitchen, it's stylish and makes a nice cuppa!

Really pretty shape and brilliant purple colour. Sadly leaks from external water level indicator and also paint bubbles and peels off. Also chrome-effect on handle knobs also bubbles. Really a great shame for such a good looking item.

Stylish but noisy
Initially we loved this kettle - its stylish, sturdy & good at pouring. However, it is, unfortunately, quite noisy and seems to have become noisier with age - not a huge problem unless, like us, you have an open plan kitchen. After aprox 2 years it has started to leak so we're looking for another one, my next priority will be to get a quiet one.
