although the kettle itself works fine apart from the faint plastic taste am I the only one that has had my hand scolded by the steam escaping at the back of the lid when I pour water from it?I have had this kettle over a year now and it still catches me out if I hold the handle too high. It is down right dangerous and mine has now been thrown out.

Very loud,and replaced first which leaked from its level indicator plastic.The second always tasted of plastic,and finally also leaked from a badly fitted seal at the base of the indicator.The Level was not easy to read as was at the back,and did not show low enough levels for only a couple of cups required.Would definitely not touch Morphy Richards again!!!

Goods service, arrived promptly. Bought this kettle to replace same model, which I have had for a number of years without problems. It looks good and works well. Hope it gives the same service as it predecessor.

Excellent Value for Money
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

We purchased this kettle to replace one of the same model and it appears just as good as the old one. The only problem with the old one was the thermostat and sadly I was unable to find a supplier for a replacement thermostat which I am sure would have prolonged its life for many more years. A sign of the times i guess,when you have to throw away an appliance because one tiny part, costing pennies has failed!

Good sturdy kettle
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Has stood up well to a couple of months of abuse, still looks smart and boils quickly. My only qualm would be that it doesn't switch off when removed from the base so it starts to boil again when replaced. Otherwise it would have been 5 stars

Do not buy

This is a dangerous kettle. The pouring spout on mine just fell off while pouring boiling water and I was lucky to avoid scalding myself.

DO NOT BUY THIS KETTLE !!!!!!! Horible Plastic Taste.
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Dont buy this kettle, I bought one from a local retailer a month ago and after 150 boils of water it still gives the water a horible plastic taste, Normaly this goes after a few boils but not so with this kettle. I wish i had read reviews 1st before buying it but have never come across anything like it before. I contacted Morphy Richards and they say this is a new phonomenon which affects modern kettles and can only advise to change water everytime you boil, But this wastes money on electricity and i can still taste the plastic. They wont offer me an exchange or refund and pass the buck to the retailer to do so. Even though it comes with a 2 year guarantee. Very dissapointed with them.

Noisy kettle
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

I would not recommend this product, it is very noisy and the gauge is in the wrong place. Difficult tn read gauge.

Designed by an idiot
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Obviously designed by an idiot: the level indicator is obscured by the handle when it's on the charger, and by your hand when you pick it up.

Great kettle
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

It is unfair to judge a kettle noisy when you boil water with it. It is normal to generate noise during the process of boiling, so some of the negative comments I read prior to my purchase seems unrealistic. This is a great kettle, I would highly recommend anyone to purchase it.

This looks nice but is noisy and the metal around the kettle is extremely hot, I have burnt myself a few times by accidentally touching it! Works well otherwise.

plastic smell and taste
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Very disappointed with this Morphy Richards kettle Mode 43027 as it ruins every cup of tea I make. I just cant get rid of the plastic taste and smell no matter how often I boil water. I've had it for a week now and await a response to the email I have sent to Morphy Richard

Leaking handle
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

This kettle has outlived most others, no fault with electrics, and good design. Sadly has developed a leak at base of handle, water runs down each side of the switch, there is a thin line of lime along joint of plastic handle and steel body, I shall have to look for a kettle with a handle that joins higher up, and not so likely to pull the joints apart.

Morphy Richards cordless kettle
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

This kettle looks good on the worktop and is easy to keep clean. It's rather noisy but performs well. The instructions recommend filling through the spout, with good reason as the lid is only held on by two plastic pins which could possibly break off --- but with careful handling the lid can be used. Good value for the price.
