Are you happy with your kettle?

Ours has started leaking from the water level window, we tried gluing it but it leaks worse than ever. Looks like we're going to have to go out and get a replacement, and asap as don't like the idea of my electric kettle standing in a puddle of water. Kettles being such dodgy things to buy, can anyone recommend one? Best one we ever had was a basic plastic one by Russell Hobbs but I'm looking for a steel/chrome one.

Buy a cheap one! Someone bought us the Seimens Porche one for a wedding present and it is crap at pouring. Toaster in same range is useless too - totally uneven browning. They do look beautiful but if it wasn't for them being (unwanted ) gifts I would be buying Asda/Aldi/Tesco own brand!

I had a classic Russell Hobbs metal one 20 years ago which should have lasted forever, but as it went wrong after about 5 years I have little faith in any of them these days.
Our current one is a Morphy Richards cordless jug which has been-fine-touch-wood, although my cousin had the same one and hers died years ago. It's sort of like this only not silver, window isn't illuminated and it doesn't whistle - apart from that it's identical!
