    Default Recommend me a kettle

    Ours works fine but it is that noisey I think our neighbours could hear it. DH gets up about 5.30am and has a coffee and the kettle wakes DS. Occasionally he will go back to sleep but not always and I'm over starting the day at 5.30.

    So anyone know of a super quiet kettle??

    We got the el-cheapo $7 kettle from BIGW. Barely makes a peep. It doesn't whistle- just turns itself off when it's done

    Really! Wow, might give that one a go. Our current one is a stainless steal Russell Hobbs one that cost me close to $100. Luckily it was about 5 years ago so it's had plenty of use.

    We had a Russell Hobbs whisper quiet, which was so quiet I forgot I'd boiled the kettle numerous times. The quiet past lasted about 18mo, then sounded like a jumbo jet.
    I was advised last week in appliance store that plastic kettles are quiet, so I bought a black $115 Delonghi plastic one that looks all sparkly - and it's a jet engine too so disappointed.
    I called shop back, explained and was told they have metal bases hence the noise.
    So you need a plastic kettle wit a plastic base for it it to be quiet, or a specific whisper quiet one

    So cheap ones seem like the go!

    Yeah tbh I can't remember if ours used to be quiet or not, it's been so long and in our old house the kitchen was more closed off so didn't notice the noise

    I had a couple of sunbeam 'express cordless' and found them pretty quiet. Very fast to boil as well.

    I recently upgraded to a sunbeam 'retro' one. It looks so cool, but I can see why they stopped designing kettles with the handle at the top - I steam burn myself all the time!
