  • This Cookworks hob and hotplate kettle, which I found available at Argos for a pretty good value price of £12.99, is not too bad a choice if that feeling applies to you as well
  • Considering its low price for this style of kettle, I am really quite impressed with this Cookworks model
  • Overall, I have no significant complaints and recommend it

      Although I am a little bit too young to remember the days before electric kettles became quite as common as they are now in the United Kingdom, just once in a while I do get a bit of a yearning for something that looks a little bit more elegant than the usual white or cream plastic jug kettle that has become pretty much ubiquitous now. This Cookworks hob and hotplate kettle, which I found available at Argos for a pretty good value price of £12.99, is not too bad a

      choice if that feeling applies to you as well.

      You would never mistake this kettle for a genuine 1950s article, since the styling has been quite obviously refined from the old days - and that is not even to mention the obvious advances in safety features and so on since then. The kettle is still, however, made from real stainless steel, and the handle is at least advertised as Bakelite, although I have my doubts as to whether this is quite the same material as you would have found on such ...


      • an appliance half a century ago.

        Compared with an electric kettle, the Cookworks does take a little bit longer to come to the boil, but unless you are in a real rush it should not be an unbearable one. It gives a pleasant and fairly loud whistle when the water is ready, and I really liked the ability to pour out water via the spout by means of a control button situated on the handle. Talking of the handle, I do think that you might want to use a cloth when

        holding it, as although it doesn’t get dangerously hot I find it to get slightly uncomfortably warm sometimes.

        Considering its low price for this style of kettle, I am really quite impressed with this Cookworks model. Most people will probably want to stick with the speed and convenience of an electric model for everyday use, but this one might well still come in handy as an emergency reserve in case of a power failure, or perhaps as a cheapish kettle to take on camping trips. Overall, I have no significant complaints and recommend it.
