Giveaway Wahl Eco Kettle ~ Review



Every time you use a normal kettle, it is almost certain that you will boil a lot more water than necessary wasting time, energy, and adding to carbon emissions.With the ECO Kettle we can boil as much or as little water that we need. The Wahl ECO Kettle looks like a stylish electric jug kettle in appearance but it has a special feature; an internal reservoir that holds a full capacity of water ready for use, and the ECO control knob allows any quantity; from a single cupful to full capacity  to be released into the separate chamber for boiling. This results in only boiling the amount of water you need and there will be no more wasting of energy boiling surplus water.

Wahl sent me this kettle to review, the kettle has a nice jug like appearance, its light weight with clear marking on the side in milliliters so you know exactly how much water is in the boiling chamber. The lid has a a central control knob that you can lock to boil the complete kettle. A removable filter in the spout is an added feature that enables you to remove it to clean it for scale periodically. The chrome finish gives the kettle a classy look. The kettle also has an auto cut out should you accidently switch the kettle on without water in it. 
My only concern was I found the central locking knob a little flimsy and difficult to twist whilst locking the lid to fully boil the kettle.I  was worried that if I over twisted it it would break off.Also when you refill the kettle and if  the knob on the lid is left in locked position it will not click shut and could cause an accident as the lid would remain partly open and cause a spill.

My rating  for this kettle:
Style 5/5
Function 4/5
Design 4/5
Energy saving 5/5
Total score 18/20

I would definitely recommend this kettle as I love the feature of only boiling the necessary amount of water and saving energy. The ECO kettle has been awarded the prestigious 'Recommended' mark by the Energy Saving Trust .I am not surprised at this as it really is an energy saving kettle.To see how the kettle works in action you can click this video

Thankyou to Wahl for sending me the Eco Kettle to trial. All the opinions and views expressed in this review  are my own.
