My mum and dad are the original Kettle Killers!
They need a new kettle every 4 months and sometimes the kettles don't even survive the journey home! Sometimes the poor kettle has a defect that is detected after being unwrapped and has to go straight back! They overflow, refuse to work, blow up and generally don't cooperate!
I had the same trusty kettle for about 14 years and in fact it is still in working order, wrapped carefully and stored in the loft. The only reason I replaced it was that I was sick of looking at it. A refit of the kitchen seemed like a good excuse to buy a new shiny metal one!
What are my parents doing to their kettles?
