My last kettle was a twenty-something-dollar, cheap-chain-store purchase apt-get herunterladen.

I was fresh out of home, armed with a box of cast off plates, pepper (but no salt) and a rice cooker that my mother had tearily packed into the car with me – which is all well and good until you start hankering a good cup of tea fireworks video to download.

It was a corded kettle, with a faux-metallic coating that peeled off in my hands from time to time, and it boiled my water well (albeit somewhat noisily) for a good year or so before giving up the ghost completely and refusing to turn on asio4all herunterladen. My sister replaced it with a cordless version from the same homewares store and tea-drinking returned to normal.

We never owned a toaster.

Sure, we had tabletop mini-ovens that also grilled bits of bread, but it wasn’t the same as having a compact, bread-specific device that would pop your breakfast out when it was done steam game and play at the same time. And while the grilling system worked for a while, we would, from time to time, forget that there was something crisping up over in the other room and only remember when the acrid smell of carbonated carbohydrates permeated back through the house panda pop for free.

On one occasion, the results were so dire that the entire unit had to be replaced as the heat emitted from the blackened bread had caused the plastic handle to melt right off handschriftarten kostenlos downloaden! (We super glued it back on for a bit, but eventually decided that some things just can’t be salvaged).

Needless to say, I was thrilled when Morphy Richards approached me to review their latest range of toasters & kettles – the Elipta 60s cod warzone download kostenlos. Inspired by the bold and distinctive designs of the 1960s, but with all the modern features you’d expect of a premium appliances brand. (Better yet, there’s a chance for you to win one of 12 toaster & kettle packs or $1000 cash – just keep reading to the bottom) ea spiele herunterladen.

Having been given a choice between Cornflower Blue, Barley & Sage, I picked the vibrant sage green to match my Pistachio Kitchenaid and the pale green of my parents’ kitchen herunterladen.

The traditional kettle (RRP $149.95) is sleek with a coated stainless steel finish and a see-through lid and water gauge. An insulated handle, plastic cordless base and removable scale filter (which pulls out easily from just inside the lid) make it light, practical and easy to use download flipaclip. My favourite feature, though, is the concealed rapid boil element, which has a full kettle of water boiled in just under 4 minutes (yes, I timed it) and so quietly that I couldn’t hear it from the next room – a far cry from the wobbly, violent boiling of our existing unit.

The matching two-slice toaster had my mum hovering behind me with a slice of bread almost as soon as it came out of the box.

Small, sleek and lightweight with a coated stainless steel body, it has assumed pride of place on the counter top, despite our usual habits as an empty-counter family. The removable crumb tray makes the unit easy to clean, and the browning control dial on the side makes it suitable for both barely-browned Betties and borderline-burnt Barries. My father (who sometimes floats around the comments section under the moniker Big Bite) had a little trouble figuring the system out, but got the hang of it after a couple of trial slices. (Mum was just happy that there was no chance of her melting the handle off the table top griller again).

With self-centering slots wide enough for bagels, a lifting unit suitable for smaller items like crumpets and reheat and toast-from-frozen settings, this unit is versatile enough to stay in use throughout the week (and will likely maintain its pride of place next to the kettle on the counter top, despite our limited bench space.
