Morphy Richards Equip Jug Kettle 102774 Electric Kettle Kettle : Pardon?

No negatives, just a kettle.

I voted it a 3 because a kettle is a kettle right?. It isn’t bad but just not great either. I purchased my kettle based on looks rather than function. Well actually, it turns out the most important thing to me is the speed it takes to boil and noise and this kettle manages to do both of these badly.As it takes so long to boil, i end up doing other things in the meantime to use my time efficiently and then remember 15 minutes later, i wanted a cup of tea and start the process all over again. It’s red and looks good in my kitchen+ there is a little blue light to show you it is boiling+lid opens easily, easy to fill and kettle turns easily on its base+it works (just not as well as i’d like)cons:- takes too long to boil- after all that, i’ve gone off the red- quite noisy, annoying- wouldn’t buy again.

This kettle is wonderful, it’s lightweight with a sleek design. The only thing i will say is it’s not the exact same colour as in the images, it’s more of a bright light tomato red than a dark shine red. So be warned as i was a bit disappointed it didn’t match any of my other morphy richards red devices.

Took 2weeks to remove bad taste from boiled water( had to use bicarbonate soda).

This kettle is a smart looking kettle and you fill to how much you need whether it be 2, 3, or 4 cups as this will save on electricity too. It has clear glass so you can see how much water you have in your kettle.

Lovely red kettlethat boils quickly,has a luminated light switch that goes out when kettle has boiled. Kettle has tidy cord basethat you can have the cord your required length,great colour too.

A kettle is a kettle and it boils water. It is properly described as ‘very loud’. More important: if you have arthritis in your wrists, you will find this kettle heavy to lift when full, difficult to fill and irritatingly clumsy to pour. My old kettle with a handle was much easier to use.

The colour is s bit dull, not the lovely shiny metallic red of the one i had to replace. It is moderately quiet and quick to boil. If you try to pour it too quickly then water leaks out of the lid- so i end up with water everywhere. I will not replace like with like when this one breaks down.

Very good finish and quality.

Boils quickly, some may not like the noise as it’s a bit loud, but most kettles are. Nice lid, easy to fill under tap. Pleased with performance and looks smart in my kitchen.

Ok, it’s perhaps a little noisier than our last kettle but really it’s nothing to be concerned abouteasy to fill and use: pleased thus far.

Does what it says on the tin so far so good.

As usual from morphy richards a great quality product that looks superb . It matches the toaster and both look fantastic together and enhance any kitchen .

Very noisy, the water gauge on the side isn’t very good either. If water is left in there for a while it has a plastic taste to it. It boils quickly and the lid opens nicely.

I bought this to replace an older morphy richards jug kettle which decided to leak after a couple of years,i thought it was an upgraded model but when you see it in the flesh the exterior looks plastic rather than metallic and the colour is decidedly more like a pillar box red. Quality wise it looks like a downgrade. Mine arrived without interior box packaging. It does the same though thing boils water. If you are going to match this with other morphy richards kitchen appliances don’t bother the picture is a bit misleading.

I have to say that this kettle looks the part. It is very well made and is not that noisy. The outside finish is amazing, and i think this will last a considerable time due to the quality of the product. I like the push button lid opener, but this kettle can be filled through the spout as well. All in all a very good purchase.

Morphy Richards Equip Jug Kettle 102774 Electric Kettle Red Morphy Richards Kettle

It’s a kettle so i guess you can only get so excited. I expected it to be the same red as our morphy richards equip coffee machine (dark red and metallic) as that’s what it looks like in the picture. It’s actually a cheap looking, brighter red and not metallic. Not really worth the money in my opinion. But i get a cup of coffee in the morning so it does what is required.

The base on the kettle is wobbly as the cord is too big to fit into the space on the base , also the water indicator is not very clear. Apart from this it’s a good size ,a nice red colour and is not flimsy like the plastic kettles.

I have just received this kettle. Boiled quickly and quietly when full. Can’t comment on anything else other than it’s a lighter red, more postbox red than the image. Not a deal breaker for me but a shame as it doesn’t match my toaster now.

I buy this kettle or it’s equivalent every 2 years because that’s as long as it lasts.

Why is it so hard to buy a good kettle?. This one looks ok and on paper seems like it should be good, but is quite loud, hard to pick up and prone to spilling everywhere if you pour too quickly. It can be awkward to fill depending on the shape of your tap due to the lid not opening very wide. On the plus side it looks ok and boils water at a reasonable rate.

Great only fault is lid could open a little wider.

The kettle arrived very quickly after i ordered it. Upon opening the box i was disappointed that the colour didn’t match the colour i saw on the site. The kettle looked a darker red on the website and i expected it to match my red morphy richards toaster. However the kettle is a far brighter shade of red. Apart from the colour, the kettle seems to work fine and doesn’t leak as my previous morphy richards kettle did.

A good looking kettle that does its job. However, it’s a little flimsy, i expected something sturdier.

Quite loud, not that fast and the red plastic coating has already begun to peel off after just 2 weeks of use.

This has to be the loudest kettle i have ever heard. We have to close the kitchen door or the people in the lounge can’t hear the tv. The filler door doesn’t open fully. The red colour is nothging like their red toaster and has a different finish. Overall – yes it works but the noise level makes it anti-social.

Good, have a few weeks, no problems.

It’s alot brighter red than it looks. We bought it to match a morphy richards coffee machine. Pictures make it look like the same red but it’s actually a lot brighter. Annoying as it now doesn’t match but it’s a good kettle.

Great design, easy to use, quiet boil and well built.

Nice looking colour, very pleased with quyality.

Colour not exactly as appears in picture. More of a bright solid red as opposed to the metallic shiny red i expected.

Well packaged, looks great, boils fast and no funny taste to the water ( rinsed out, filled and boiled and emptied three times before using). Just keep the kids away as the body gets very hot which is exactly what you would expect with a metal kettle.

Looks great and works perfectly although a bit noisy.
