I have had one of these for 6 months or so now. A great piece of equipment normally selling at £59.95. I bought it last year for £39.95. I know not every one has access to Makro, but if you do I suggest you get one. They are great before it I spent an eternity boiling the kettle and whilst I waited the kids distracted me so I went back and boiled it again and yet again in those 2-3 minutes the kids did something else. I just spent my time and electricity heating water and never using it for a drink. Now it pours a cup in 30 seconds and I can drink it. In fact it probably comes out in 20 seconds, but i have a big cup.
