It's cheaper than tea bags or the milk!

almost as cheap as de scaling your old kettle

very good price even if it is just a value one

If they've got 2 for 1 on rich tea they'll be onto a winner

Voted steaming

voted hot, cant go wrong for 1.50!! x

Banned

best thing since sliced bread

Good if you can get one or more.

It doesn't take long to boil. We've had these kettles for years and do the job!

It's not a national deal though...I just checked my local in Tower Park, Poole and they're still full price.

HOT! Bought 20 of these @ my local couse I'm a moron.

I am very sorry to hear about your loss. Just imagine how useful that £3 would have been. You could have used it to pay for the petrol and time spent searching for this £1.50 kettle.

There is a debate whether plastic kettles may leach toxic chemicals into the water as you boil the water, as the plastic gets very hot and could release toxins into the water. Some people have suggested that this could risk cancer.

Metal kettles with no plastic water gauge parts might avoid this potential risk. There could be similar risks with using plastic containers to heat food in microwaves / conventional ovens, including the plastic wrap covering on top of the ready meal containers, and the containers themselves.

Here's some details on plastics and which ones to avoid:

That site is hilarious! Toxins in plastic? And the comments! "As a mom...". There might be a risk, and using metal instead might avoid it?

"Now that is scientific fact — there's no real evidence for it — but it is scientific fact".

Hot!

Ignore all the non-spellers & neurotics out there........this is a great deal, thanks for the post......it's a handy back up kettle to have!

Hot boils water job done

The other half bought one of these for me to use on a renovation job I'm working on. Despite being boiled and rinsed about 10 times drinks still taste of plastic. It's cheap for a reason.

My kettle broke down about a year ago so we bought this as a temporary measure as it was less then a fiver.
Over a year later we are still using it as its a great kettle, just a little slow then the previous one.

what is the energy rating?
Hope buyers are not paying for it in the long run in electricity bills

i HOPE some of these responses are being ironical, if not....


BACK AWAY FROM ELECTRICITY

Me.
I purchased one for the builders renovating a property I just bought. Saves getting a decent kettle covered in dust and dirty hand prints etc.

HOT HOT HOT

Just in time for the Students - every penny counts ...

Is this an energy saving kettle ?

If not - is it likely to be banned, just like 40W, 60 and 100W light bulbs, by those fat bummed MP's in Europe.
I don't remember asking for dimmer, yellow light bulbs

It uses the same amount of electricity to heat the same amount of water regardless of the energy rating of the kettle. There is no such thing as an energy saving kettle. One with a higher rating will just heat the water quicker than one with a lower rating

Brilliant price.

However been using 3000w for years now and couldn't go back to the slower ones.

Just bought this the other week. Agree with others that even after two dozen boils, water still tastes/smells slightly of plastic.

Its a CHEAP kettle....it BOILS water

Three options

1. If you think its quality is comprimised due to its price....buy a more expensive kettle
2. If you're too cheap to buy a more expensive kettle but don't want to search for this one....boil water in a pan
3. BUY THE KETTLE

Whatever option you choose, do it to the Benny Hill theme at an elevated pace and then get on with your life

Sorted...oh hot by the way

Full price at Milton Keynes

Excellent deal!
