I bought a new Morphy Richards kettle two weeks ago. I boiled and emptied it as suggested in the instructions but the water from it had a horrible metallic/plasticy taste. I must have boiled and emptied it countless times now and it is no better. I read on the internet to try bicarbonate of soda and vinegar which i have done but the foul taste remains. Does anyone have any idea what i can do to get rid of this? I can't return it to Argos as I have lost the receipt. I have emailed Morphy Richards but apparantly they take weeks to reply. From what I have read it is a common problem with Morphy Richard's kettles. I am a bit angry tbh as i am still having to use my old kettle and the new one wasn't cheap!

This is a really nice kettle, fairly quiet for a fast boil kettle. The lid has to be taken off to fill the kettle and it has an easy 1,2 or 3 cup level inside or can be filled to maximum level if you have alot of tea to make. Nice product.

No advice, but if you bought it on debit/credit card, Argos MAY be able to accept your statement as proof of purchase.

This is the reason I won't have anything but a completely metal or glass kettle, for some reason plastic kettles always taste well, plasticky.

I've had a kettle years which dh still refuses to use as he says it still tastes plasticy. I noticed it for a week but then it was fine.

I had the same problem with possibly the same kettle, Morphy Richards. I boiled water with bicarb in it, left it to cool. Boiled and cooled water -took about 2 weeks but problem now solved.

I brought a Quest kettle a couple of months back. It's cheap and cheerful and does the job.
