Morphy Richards Accents Kettle
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.

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.
