3rd world issue here.

Have a voucher for our wedding I really really would like a whistling hob kettle (the Orla Kiely one) DH says no way are we having a hob kettle.

Are they a bit shit or is he BU?

One word - Shrill

They are great until you are doing something and cant get to the hob to turn it off quickly and they become a massive PITA.

Hmmm wink

I would think that electric kettles are much quicker and more efficient and they turn themselves off when they're done. When I'm cooking, I always boil water in the kettle for pasta, etc, rather than starting with cold water in a pan. Hob kettles are a bit of a faff too, IMO and the whistle soon loses its novelty.

Do an experiment to see if the novelty will wear off. Get your DH to randomly stand in the kitchen and blow a whistle and see how fast you crack and want to throw him outside.

Noooo don't do it! We made that mistake and have since reverted to an electric kettle it takes FOREVER to boil, it's soooo shrill and is an all round pain in the arse

We were given [[ this]] one as a house warming present. I was dubious (to say the least) but after a few months of use I'm totally converted. It boils really fast, looks gorgeous and i just pop it on a lower heat don't flip the whistle on if I'm popping upstairs (or some such) while waiting for it to boil.

It's so nice not to have an ugly electric one cluttering up the worktop anymore.
