At a sale price of just under £30 (10% at Quidco taking it down to £26.55), this is now in the same price bracket as many other 'normal' kettles and the biggest saving isn't in the price but in it's unique energy saving feature. Until now, accurately measuring the amount of water to be boiled in your kettle has been all but impossible. The result? It is estimated that, on average, we boil twice the volume of water needed every time. Which means twice as much energy, twice as much time. With a 3kW kettle that's the same as wasting the energy of around 50 light bulbs!

The Eco Kettle is different: its internal reservoir holds a full capacity of water ready for use, while the measuring button allows any quantity - from a single cupful to full capacity - to be released into the separate chamber for boiling.

The result? Exactly the right amount of water every time you boil - and no more waste.

The Eco Kettle has been approved by the Good Housekeeping Institute and is recommended by Powergen as a pioneering product in the battle to save energy in the nation's homes. During independent consumer trials directed by the Energy Saving Trust, the Eco Kettle used over 30% less energy than standard kettles

How can it tell how big my cup is?
Now i just fill my 352ml cup and tip it in. if the wife wants a brew i tip in two cups.

So how much will this save me? It will cost me £15 more than my kette.

Sorry cold from me.

Let me just test this theory out. If I empty my kettle, fill a mug with cold water and pour it into my kettle for a brew, do I achieve exactly the same improvement to the Earth, make baby Jesus smile and the dolphins all play and stuff?

If I do then I've also saved £29.95 and the terrible impact to our fragile planet of both disposing of the old kettle and making a new one.

Thanks.

How to save £30

Take cup
Fill cup with water
Empty cup into kettle

Next..........

First I don't have one of this and I am not likely to use it. Saying that I thought that one of the selling points (from what a friend was showing me over the weekend) is that the element is also flatter than other kettles allowing the minimum amount of water to be lower. S, if you want a small cup of coffee you can boil water just for that instead of having to go to the "Min" of other kettles.

Don't quote me on this though. :)

Erm, not defending the kettle but I think you guys have forgotten your basic science - when you boil water, some of it evaporates so the mug of water poured into kettle wouldn't be exact. :D

(This is as much for my old science teacher and not to be taken seriously!)
#6
My kettle has a flat heating plate, but I agree you must cover the element if you have the bending tube/coil type.
Don't let these ethical companies ask you to spend another £30 and dump your older kettle. I am sure many people know how much water to put in a kettle. Its just common sense in the end.

Ah that leaves room for the milk - all sorted then!

I've got one and really like it.

If you live alone, it means you can fill the kettle up, but only boil a cups worth at a time, so you save time avoiding repeated fills, and not waiting for excessive amounts of water to boil.

Seems an expensive way to save a walk to the sink

Sorry, pointless product/poor deal

I really don't have a problem boiling only what I need in my 10 quid kettle which I hope won't need replacing for a few more years (and yes, it has a 'flat' element).

Another marketing scam under the pretext of being 'green' I'm afraid. I wonder how much production is going on (probably in polluting China) making 'green' versions of perfectly good items.

I'm in favour of trying to be genuinely green (I'm a bit of a sceptic on the global warming thing but we shouldn't be wasting finite resources) but so many of these products are based on a commercial, not ethical, platform. If you really want to spend 30 quid on being green add some insulation to your loft (and get your money back in savings on your bill in a couple of years).

It may not be everyones cup of tea (pun intended) but for people like me who really wanted this but weren't prepared to pay £40+ for it this is a good price. Yes you can get kettles cheaper, but not this kettle. I personally wouldn't pay hundreds for a mobile phone but I'm not about to diss a post that finds a Nokia N97 for £100 just because my phone only cost £20.

As usual everyone seems to be missing the point of what makes a deal hot or cold. :whistling::whistling:Regardless of whether you think this eco kettle is a good or a bad idea, is it a good deal? Is it cheaper anywhere else, or is this actually a pretty good price?

I have no idea whether I want one of these, but I'm NOT going to vote it cold simply because I think it's a bad idea. Just judge the deal folks or hotukdeal loses its value......

Besford....I don't drink wine, but didn't bother to vote you wine deal cold or go onto your thread and avanglise about the evils of drink.

The implementation is good, but the build quality is suspect for me. I had one of these and it mysteriously stopped working a few days after the warranty run out. It is as if it were on a 'life timer' or something lol
I wouldn't buy another.

I reckon it saves me at least a minute per boil, between often not needing filling, and boiling faster because it has the right amount of water in it.

My time is worth £10/hour (for the sake of argument, may be more, may be less)

That means it pays for itself in 60 x 2.6 boilings -> 156 boilings. An ordinary kettle isn't free, so in reality it's less than that.

So, if I boil a kettle twice a day, it's paid for itself in just over 2 months.

Seems cheap to me.

That is great reasoning!!! Based on your formula I would have it paid off in no time at all because my time is invaluable :thumbsup:
That said this is a good product and is for the LaZy Tea drinker or Coffee drinker who cant be bothered to measure the right amount of water. To be honest I have never seen any of my friends or family measure out their water. We are a society of convenience and shortcuts and this is one.
(note tea must be just a tiny bit below boiling so this is ideal for a good cuppa quickly)
Dont bother with that Tefal instant whatever it is.. it doesnt boil the water at all its just hot; not hot enough though.
Waffle on I will not. But this is a bit more Eco than the Landrover deal that had everyone bothered.
If the Landrover/ RangeRover was so Eco then how come it was £60000, true utility comes cheaper and without leather seats and swish trim:-D

Besford, on a serious note, you don't like the product, we got the message. So did you just pop back because you ran out of other theads to **** off or have you really not got anything better to do?

Didn't you post the Land rover deal? :w00t:

Have to agree that this is a pretty useless product at this price. You'd need to drink 5 cups a day for 150 years to get the £20 markup. No, I didnt work it out lol :-D

my 3kw kettle boils about 4 cups in a minute so you must overfill by a fair bit then! Maybe you should learn to judge what a cupful actually weighs in your kettle :whistling:

or even find something else to do rather than watching it boil :-D

I judge mine by the tap on full. 1 sec = 1 cup.

The energy saving of these things is ridiculous.

1 cup of hot tea is about 0.03kWh

Not turning on your central heating for one day in the winter saves about 200kWh which is equal to about 6,000 cups of hot water.

Also not driving for one day will save about 20 kWh.


And that is not even counting that half the time the extra energy in the hot kettle is not a bad thing as it heats your house and you then burn less gas in your boiler due to that.
