Rated 4 out of 5 by Emmee from One small disappointment I reviewed this kettle a couple of months ago but in subsequent use I have been a little disappointed with one small point - something which was mentioned by a previous reviewer . . . In artificial light it is impossible to see the level of water within the kettle. Obviously, lighting in most people's kitchens is fitted in the ceiling, so the light does not get into the kettle via the water level panels on the side. I would suggest that a 'mark 2' version of this kettle should have internal lighting as does the Opera kettle. It is not essential to illuminate the on/off switch. I would recommend this kettle to a friend but with reservations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RobW from Great Value and striking looks Morphy Richards sent me this kettle to test and review. Firstly I must say that the colour ( poppy ) is striking and it looks great in the kitchen. The kettle is well made, it has a large easy to read capacity window on both sides, the lid, unlike the hinged type, is completely removed to allow easy filling, the angle of the handle is well balanced. Overall this is a well designed kettle that looks good, works well and is one of the best I have seen in this price range. This kettle looks even better in the kitchen when matched with the Chroma Toaster available in the same colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 90Diva from Lovely bright colour I purchased this jug kettle only today but can already state that I am very happy with my purchase. It is a nice bright spot in my kitchen. It switches off cleanly and has easy access via the removable lid for re-filling. And the spout is not too round, so it doesn't pour water anywhere but where it is wanted. It's a replacement for my several years-old Opera jug kettle, which I loved. But sadly, I caused its demise myself by accidentally damaging it. But I think I shall be just as happy with my new Chroma model.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chop from Love the look and it does the trick, quietly! Just got the kettle and it is fantastic looking, stylish and bold, not for the faint hearted. It boils quickly and very quietly, so the functionality is great. The 2 things I would change to give this product 5*'s are: 1. the 1.5l capacity is a little small for a big family, I did not appreciate the difference the .2l compared to my last kettle would make. 2. the lid is not attached, again I am used to an attached lid. I appreciate I am not going to get the problem of catches going etc, but I have managed to boil the kettle with the lid sitting in the sink. I know this is user error and I will get used to it. 3. the cable is black, for such a great looking item a colour coordinated lead and plug would have been the cherry on the cake.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great Kettle which needs one slight improvement... Bought this item about a month ago and have to say I already love it. It's bright, it's happy, it's easy to use and clean and it's easy to see the fill level through the vertical side window. The only improvement I'd make is to have a hinged lid rather a fully removable lid. Other than that this is an excellent product and would certainly suit you if you're looking for a kettle with a fully removable lid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dave O from good looking very pleased with this kettle. Lightweight plastic finish ,suits our water better than the metal kettle ,which was always needing de scaling due our hard water.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jeff the sound from Now that's a Poppy RED I nearly did not buy this kettle after reading a comment from a customer of yours about a vile smell. And surely so the first boil did smell, so emptying and refilling with cold water and boil again. Still a smell, but not so strong, repeated this twice more, then made a cup of tea, the smell had gone from water and just that "new" smell you get from any new bit of kit you buy. My dear wife liked it from the start, and now some 4 or 5 weeks later loves it because of the easy way to fill it, finger in the lid ring and pull. It is easy to fill and clean, it has a low noise level, you can hear a news broadcast over the top of it. The base is also designed to seat the kettle if you haven't quite got it right putting it onto the base. When turning the kettle on, I was struck by the white light used to show it's active and working. Overall very happy with the product, now we look to a long life and many, many cups of tea...

Rated 5 out of 5 by mrsDJC from Great Kettle! We have had the plum version of this kettle for over a year at home and have no problems with it at all. It does everthing you need it to and it is very easy to keep clean. We have recently purchased the poppy kettle for our office and while we are perfectly happy with how it is functioning, we feel the colour is a bit on the pink side (especially compared to the accents range which is a lovely deep red). Obviously this is of little consequence in our office kitchen and the cups of tea are just as tasty.
