Our Review

The Morphy Richards Dune Kettle is a sleek, compact and stylish modern electric kettle from the well respected small appliance brand Morphy Richards. The kettle is available in five colours: black, cornflower blue, cream, green and white (pictured). Each of the designs has a glossy finish and a "dune" design, that is to say, a repeated swirly pattern like sand dunes, as shown below:

On the practical front, the kettle is highly functional. It has a limescale filter, 360 degree base, integrated cord storage and an illuminating power switch when boiling. It's also a rapid boil kettle, which is a big benefit. The handle connects to the top and bottom of the kettle allowing for easy pouring.

Specification

We now take a look at the feature specification:

  • Capacity - 1.5 Litres, up to 6 cups. Perfect for large families and work offices.
  • Dimensions - 20cm x 16cm x 24cm.
  • Rapid Boil - There's a 3kW electrical heating element which boils the kettle. This particular heating element allows the kettle to rapidly boil water. You'll no longer have to wait what seems like forever for a lovely cup of tea.
  • Water Window - So as to see how much water is inside the kettle, there's a translucent water window. It denotes 0.5L, 1.0L and 1.5L. It allows you to boil exactly the amount of water required, allowing for a speedy cup of tea and a healthier looking electric bill.
  • 360 Degree Base - The kettle has a 360 degree base which it sits on. It easily slots on to the base and will do so facing any direction. It's an extremely convenient feature.
  • Illuminating Power Switch - To indicate that the kettle is boiling, the power switch will illuminate.

Limescale Filter

Pictured below is the limescale filter which sits behind the kettle's spout. As you can see, it's easily removable and washable. Filters are essential for most places in the UK as the water is saturated with minerals which cause limescale to form.

Integrated Cord Storage

As you can see below, the kettle has integrated cord storage. Storing excess electrical wire in this manner will result in a cleaner and neater looking worktop.

Matching Toaster

It may be worth considering buying the matching toaster, which is also by Morphy Richards. The pair are pictured together below:

Summary

The Morphy Richards Dune Kettle delivers both in terms of substance and style. The swirly sand dune patterns combined with the glossy finish gives a beautiful aesthetic. The kettle doesn't hold back on features either, giving you a filter, 360 degree base, boiling light, and also a rapid boil. We give the Dune Kettle 4.5 out of 5 stars.
