Morphy Richards Pyramid

Morphy Richards appliances are famous for being really good appliances wrapped up in excellent design, and the Morphy Richards Pyramid is no exception. Available in a range of bold, shiny colours it looks fantastic with its lovely curves and appealing design. There’s a window on the side of the Morphy Richards Pyramid that shows you how much water is inside, but it’s quite difficult to read it.

With a 1.5 litre capacity he Morphy Richards Pyramid is slightly smaller than most of the kettles on the market nowadays, but it should still be okay for normal, every day usage. What’s more, as the Pyramid is a cordless model you can heat the water up and transport it from place to place in the kettle without worrying about burning yourself.

The 360 degree base makes it easy to pop the kettle back on the base and take it off again — there’s no fiddling around with getting an exact match on where it’s supposed to fit. As with most modern kettles, there’s an auto shut-off feature that means as soon as the water is boiling the kettle will turn itself off so you don’t waste electricity or time on heating water that’s already boiling.

Unlike most modern kettles, the Morphy Richards Pyramid has boiling dry protection. This means if there’s no water in the kettle but it’s accidentally turned on it won’t try to boil water that isn’t there and damage itself. On top of this, although there’s a whistle when the Morphy Richards Pyramid is boiled, it’s really quiet so don’t rely on it.

Easy to clean, easy to use and genuinely just a nice kettle, there are however a few niggles with the Morphy Richards Pyramid with a number of people reporting that if water is left in the device for too long it starts to take on a plasticy taste, so you need to change the water inside frequently.
