      I purchased this set form Argos last year and it’s still serving me well. It’s a great option if you need to pinch pennies a bit as you can get it for around £29 from a few retailers. First of all it’s stainless steel.

      When manufacturers describe some products as stainless steel, what they actually mean is it has a steeless steel effect paint job. These actually are stainless steel.

      A very thin layer and in the case of the kettle, particularly around the lid extremely prone to lime-scaling. But they look good.

      The controls are

      metallic grey so blend in nicely with the stainless steel. More on the kettle.

      It’s cordless with a nice round base, which to me is vital. Does anyone struggle with a corded kettle these days? It’s so much easier.

      It has a fair capacity, 1. 7L and most importantly doesn’t have a cut-off after boiling (A lot of kettles now have this helpful feature where they basically won’t boil again for a minute or two, until they’ve cooled down and generally had a rest presumably.

      If you’re making hot drinks for a lot of people, at a ...

      • dinner party, doing the round at work or whatever, it’s infuriating having to wait for the next lot of water to even start to boil …) The filter is dead easy to clean, although getting in the kettle to clean out limescale [because of the narrow lid, and steel edges] can be pretty awkward. The toaster.

        It doesn’t have any gremlins in it. I’m sure we’ve all had one of those infuriating toasters where the bread will come out pale and soft one minute, black and rock hard the next, strangely on the exact the

        same settings.

        I have mine set at 3, although wider peices of bread (thick sliced and fresh baked cut bread) would need to be turned down to nearer 2 otherwise they burn on the outside without actually crisping :- it’s quite a narrow toast slot. There’s a defrost and reheat setting, although I’ve not had occasion to use those yet.

        No other features like a crumb tray, but who needs it? If you want to clean out the toaster you turn it upside down surely?

        So all in all this is a good little package, ideal for a home starter.
