Tower 1.7L Rapid Boil Glass Kettle Reivew

Updated on October 8, 2019

About the kettle

The time had come when I needed to get myself a new kettle. I had shopped around for kettles, but opted for the Tower 1.7L Rapid Boil Glass Kettle from a catalogue. There are several reasons why I chose this one. I do drink quite a lot of tea and coffee, so wanted a kettle large enough to hold enough water. Also, the price I didn't think was too bad at £29.99. The main body of the kettle is glass and holds 1.7L of water. The instructions tell you to fill the kettle between the 'max' and min' lines - as is the case with most kettles you get these days. There is an instruction book that comes with the kettle but at the end of the day, who really reads these? But inside the book are the technical specifications and information about boiling the kettle.

The kettle can be opened by simply pressing the button on the top of the handle. Once the kettle is filled, place it on the stand and click the switch down at the bottom of the kettle to start boiling. I like the fact that the kettle is cordless. The lead is on the kettle base itself, so it is easy to pour water out once it has boiled. Depending on how full you fill your kettle all depends how long it will take to boil. Having said that though, even when it is filled full to the 1.7L mark, I think it still does not take a great deal of time to boil.

Another feature of this kettle which tempted me into purchasing it is the glitter part of it. At the base of the kettle is a rim of light around the kettle that lights up when you switch it on. When the water is boiling, it looks like the water is all glittery and lit up by the light. I purchased the pink one. As you can see from the pictures below, it lights up quite well. When the water has boiled and the kettle switches itself off, then the light will go out too.

When pouring the water out of the spout, it does not spill or drip onto the worktop, which is good. And there is a handy little filter attached to the spout to stop any limescale escaping from the kettle. The filter is removable for easy cleaning, which is handy.

My Thoughts

I really like this kettle. I've had it about 2 weeks now, and it works well. It's a bit of fun that is lights up when it boils. But from a practical side, it might be a pretty basic kettle, but it does its job. It boils the water pretty quickly and it pours easily without any spillage. It states that the kettle makes about 6 cups on a single boil, which is good. If, like me, you love your tea and coffee, then I think you will be mildly surprised with this kettle.

As I say, I got the pink one from the catalogue, but on the website you can get the blue one. Although on the website, it says it costs £38.49, I paid £29.99 for this kettle, which is good. It's a pretty decent kettle for the price and makes a decent amount of tea and coffee before refilling the kettle. The light around the base of the kettle is pretty cool and I like that it seems to light the water up too when it boils.
