The person doesn't work so they only have a small amount of money coming in monthly from universal credit.
I'm not benefit bashing by the way, I was reliant on benefits for several years myself once and I just can't fathom spending so much on a kettle then or now.

Mine was about £65 I think and I consider it extremely good value for the amount of cups of tea it’s produced over the last few years!
I suppose it’s all relative. A £70 kettle is the equivalent of about 28 cups of coffee from a cafe. I know many people who would get through 28 cups in less than 2 months. If someone always makes their own tea/coffee then the kettle is a much cheaper option.

After FIVE kettles breaking in one year, I treated myself to the Sage smart kettle. It's amazing. It's lasted, and it's perfect for me because I drink lots of herbal teas so you can get the right temperature.
I'd buy it again in a heartbeat. If I wasn't doing well financially, I'd save for one. It's probably cheaper in the long run as it doesn't break!

Kettles can be bought for less than a tenner. Basic ones to boil tha wattter pet. Or you can buy a swanky one which looks rather nice on the granite worktop.
I could have paid a lot more for the one I had to buy last year but went for one in Asda which looks good enough for me. I think it cost approx. £20

There aren't even that many for sale at that price.
When I moved in here I was going to be replacing the kitchen so thought I'd get a cheap kettle until I did the kitchen then buy one that went with it.
It was something like £12 at Argos.
10 years later it's still doing fine!

My last kettle died 12th November 2019 and we were so skint I had to get dh to drop into Sainsbury's after work and use our nectar points on one of the cheapest kettles we could get. Cheapest in our small town store was 20.
75 quid on a kettle would make me cry.
