Morphy Richards Accents Kettle
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.

Nice looking kettle and quite quick to boil. On the poor side, it is much noisier than the previous model and has no 'whistle' like the previous model, even though there is a function for it on the base.

Quickly disappointed me....
Like the style.... Initially. Very quickly (within a few weeks) found that the paint bubbled and came off, lots of limescale around the handle & the water level indicator. Very disappointed as it's not a cheap kettle. Looks like a cheap kettle which is very shortly going to be replaced. Don't normally leave negative reviews, but feel compelled with this. Had Morphy Richards products in the past and have been pleased, but not this time.

As stated by another reviewer our kettle also looked good to start off with but unfortunately the paint soon bubbled and peeled and looked terrible. We had limescale build up on the outside around near the handle and the water gauge and it has to be the worst kettle I have ever purchased. I should have returned it before the 2 year guarantee ran out but I couldn't be bothered with the hassle. So disappointing.

very poor quality
We bought this some time ago and it has been really poor. The paint began wearing off of it 6 months after purchase, revealing the grey undercoat, it leaks and the capacity measure has an air lock in it, so often shows that there is more water in the kettle than there actually is. I forget how many times I've boiled an empty kettle that tells me there are 4 cups in it. Incidentally 4 cups, actually equates to 2 normal sized mugs..

Quick boiling, and reliable
We've had one of these kettles for several years now. Ours is cream. It's had a lot of use - including boiling a lot of water for many many cups of tea for our builders who've been on site.
It still looks good and boils ever so quickly compared with others that we've had.
We highly recommend.

Accents kettle - excellent purchase
This kettle is quick to boil, easy to use and looks great in the kitchen. It's easy to fill the kettle from a filter jug without removing it from the base - no need to use the tap.
I read some other reviews saying that users got their fingers burnt by steam when they picked up the kettle straight after it had boiled. I've tried picking it up in loads of different ways and haven't had a problem - I'm not sure exactly how other reviewers are using the handle ...!
The only small drawback is that the level indicator doesn't always display accurately - if you give the kettle a wiggle it's fine, though.

I recently redecorated my kitchen and needed a specific blue for accessories to provide the finishing touches needed to complete the redesign. The Morphy Richards kettle is exactly right, not only is the colour match perfect but the online service was sooo easy and I was able to collect my kettle at my local Waitrose outlet, it is so convenient and I will certainly be using this service again, thankyou John Lewis.
