Tea and Toast with style!

There are some pieces of kitchen equipment that we simply take for granted.  How often do you boil the kettle?  I know that mine is on many times every day, not just for tea and coffee, but to boil water for vegetables or stock as well.  This Morphy Richards Chroma is a sleek, modern jug kettle in shiny black and silver.  It's fast boil and surprisingly light.

I really loved the lid which isn't the usual hinged type but lifts right out with a ring handle and a good seal around the top.  The cup measurements are really clear on the side too.


The Morphy Richards Chroma 2 slice toaster has good clear controls with a range of heat settings.  It toasted evenly and quickly, great for breakfast toast or a quick snack with cheese.

Both items did the job you expect with the minimum of fuss and the maximum of style and get a big thumbs up from me!

Thanks to Morphy Richards for the kettle and toaster to review, I was not paid for this review and all opinions are my own.

Many thanks too, to my friend Avril for the use of her kitchen and beautiful Portmerion Pamona crockery as I have major building work going on in my house!

    This is a fab combo! I love butter (real butter!) on slightly cooled toast so that it sits on the top and doesn't melt in. Then depending on my mood it's spread with either Bovril or peanut butter. [Savoury all the way :-) ]
