New kettle

Post by Caryll on Mon Feb 10, 2014 7:19 pm

Most people who know me, know that I HAVE to have a cup of tea first thing in the mornong, or I'm  angry rude hitler evil  devil argh .......and that's putting it mildly. blush

So, this morning at the ungodly hour of 5am I put the kettle on to make my oh's flask of tea for the day, and more importantly my own first cup of the day - the one that makes me almost human.

Flicked the switch & the kettle started to sing.

Singing stopped. PANIC!

Flicked the switch & it started again. Panic averted.

It stopped. Again. impatient

Flicked the flicking switch several times & managed to get the water boiled, but then the kettle wouldn't switch off! angry

So, patient, sweet-natured person that I am, I judged it prudent to go and buy a new kettle!

It's now safely installed & tested.

Mankind can rest easy once more. happy

It's a Russel Hobbs 3 kw, 1.7 litre black cordless. It isn't bad, a bit quicker than my last one, but that was a morrison's own kettle!

We had been moaning about our kettle leaking for months, even got a new one from the company which also leaked! Then mum found a brand new kettle in the cupboard. Turns out we bought a new one but forgot and had been surviving with a leaky kettle for months unneccessarily haha
