A red one. You can get red ones in Argos. They come in metal and they boil. You can also get blue ones. They also come in metal and they boil. Personally, I'd go for the red.

I have a Philips HD 4601, its around 20 years old I think and still going strong.

It is unusual in that you have to put the water in and then you can boil that water. The hot water can be removed via the spout by titling the entire kettle towards the front.

Well I assume this is unusual.

I think some Northerners have replied on this subject as the kettles look like they came from Coronation street.
'Want a cup of tea betty?' Just kidding.

I was looking at 'special' kettles yesterday.
Kettles with temperature controls
One kettle built like a vacuum flask so the heat stays longer- (60 quid though..)

I can give you a genuine opinion aha.

There's a Tefal Control kettle you can get where you can set the exact temperature you want. So you can set the temperature for the drink you're making, lower for coffee, higher for tea, and varying by the type of tea.

If money were no issue I'd probably buy a Dualit kettle. Everything they produce is very well made and stylish.

My wife loves gadgets so we're getting a Quooker tap installed. Our kettle will soon become redundant.

Tefal control kettle I think I saw that, it's quite a clever idea.
Dualit bit expensive for me, but looks nice.

Personally I always go for a kettle that looks a bit like an evil dictator as they are often more efficient. This Hitler one is good but I am saving up for a Mussolini.

I have a kettle, but it isn't metal; however, it does boil water (and probably other liquids too, although I haven't tried anything but water).

I've had it for over a decade, so had to lift the base unit to discover a sticker with the word "Asda" on it; it's a silver-grey cordless jug kettle, with the heating element under bottom (so no descaling required), 1.7l capacity, 0.5l minimum fill, which boils in under a minute so is economical to use and perfect for a quick cuppa during the ads in Coronation Street. I can't remember what it cost, but probably around 7.99.

Sorry I can't be any help on metal kettles.
