Morphy Richards Colour Boutique and My Wee Kitchen

As a Morphy Richards Innovator I will be receiving some rather stylish Morphy Richards products to review from time to time. I will give my honest opinion in my reviews, which is something you can always expect from me, although as it is such a good quality brand, I cannot imagine I will have much to say that is negative.

For my first review, I was sent a kettle and toaster from the Colour Boutique range. The Colour Boutique is a selection of kettles and toasters in a wide range of colours to match and brighten up your kitchen. I picked the vibrant orange. A rather splendid colour and it matches one of my Le Creuset, that stay on top of my cooker. Let's face it Le Creuset are too darn heavy  to be lugging in and out of the cupboard, that is if I actually had room in the cupboard which I don't. So I matched my new kettle and toaster to my Le Creuset.



I also had to make a bit of room, as my kitchen is so tiny, but it was well worth it. My new kettle and toaster really look the part.

Carry on to the end of the post for a 35% discount code.


As to the functionality, both are working well as you would expect.


The kettle boils rather rapidly and now I have learned to pour the water into the spout, when I am re-filing the kettle, I no longer get burned from the steam and I am very happy with it. Silly fool that I am. Here are the specifications:

1.5 litre capacity
For 8 cups
3kw Concealed rapid boil element
For fast boiling
360 cordless base
For left or right handed use
Removable limescale filter
This limescale filter will stop scale getting into your drink, ensuring you can enjoy your hot drink without any bits


The Toaster has been a revelation to me. You can toast 4 slices of toast or teacakes at once. Hurray! No more queuing at the toaster. Such a simple function, but one, I never thought I had room for before. Just brilliant! I know many of you will have a four way toaster and know what a difference it makes, but me, I am just learning. It also has plenty of settings, so you will get your toasted bits and pieces browned to perfection and you can toast from frozen. Here are the specifications:

Hi Lift facility
To remove smaller items from your toaster such as crumpets etc. you can use this lift on the lever to safely remove these.
Variable browning control
Allows you to set the browning of your toast so you can have your toast just the way you like it.
Removable crumb tray
To keep your toaster clean and tidy, the crumb tray can be removed to clean.

The Kettle and Toaster both retail at £59.99 and both have a two year guarantee.

For readers of Tinned Tomatoes, I have a 35% discount code to use on the range. A brilliant deal, don't you think? So if you need a new toaster or kettle or would like to change the look of your kitchen with a spot of colour, then head over to the Morphy Richards website and place an order. Here is the code:

    1. They are really great. I could have gone for green which is the colour of my bigger le creuset which happened to be in the dishwasher when I took the photo :)

  12. Oooh....my Lovely Hubby would love these he has a 'thing' about the colour orange and would like everything in our lives to be this zingy shade, I'm more of a 'green' girl myself, so there's a few mild mannered arguments when it comes to replacing applicances.

    1. Oh marital strife over colours, tsk, tsk. My parents fell out over the consistency of custard once, it was very amusing! I love green too, but couldn't resist the orange :)

  13. Love the bright orange colour Jacqueline.

  14. GORGEOUS!! I do love orange so much, and I think I'm also slightly envious of your Le Creuset, although glad I am not schlepping it just now. In two more weeks, I will be planning the bits and bobs for MY new kitchen and I cannot wait...!!!
