“Eco Kettle Review”

Written on: 07/01/2012 by Missmarshmallow (1 review written)

Eco by name, but certainly not by nature! This kettle has been a disappointment.
I first purchased an Eco Kettle (model 2) in October 2010 from the Ethical superstore, thinking I was doing my bit for the planet by only boiling the volume of water I needed and in turn saving electricity.
The first kettle I received had a fault with the chamber. When releasing water, the kettle would fill to the top without stopping.
The replacement worked, but I found several issues:
- The chamber that store the water holds 1500ml, which is larger than boiling chamber, that only holds 800ml. Making tea for 4, involves boiling the kettle twice!
- The pressure build up after the kettle has boiled, causes it to 'whistle' until the steam is released by opening the lid.
- The kettle is very heavy when full to the max 1500ml.
- Flick on/off switch temperamental.
Now, after 13 months the kettle has simply stopped working. After a change of fuses, no luck. Only 3 month out of manufacturers warranty and it's as dead as a doornail.
Off to buy a 'normal' kettle, with a simple volume scale on the side!
