My new electric kettle: pink and no microplastics

Anyone who’s been to my place knows there’s a high risk of suffering a massive sugar rush. Everything that isn’t white is pink. And my new kettle’s no exception – a replacement for my old microplastic spewer.

Generally, I only expect one thing from my household appliances: to be pink. Just like everything else in my apartment. My boyfriend and flatmate is not quite as enthusiastic about the overall look. He particularly struggled with the following items:

In the comments field below my article on microplastics (in German), it was brought to my attention by a Community member that plastic kettles also pose a problem. That’s when I decided to get a new kettle. This time around, the requirements were: must be pink, must feature non-plastic inner material. Although I’ll miss my old kettle «Marzipan», the environment won’t.

The new kid

With this in mind, I went for «Bubble» by Russel Hobbs – a model with stainless steel insides. By contrast, the handle is made of velvety plastic. At first glance, the base is almost inexistent, it’s that slim. What’s more, you can roll up the cable in its underside, which allows me to hide most of it.

Bubble: By far the prettiest kettle I've ever owned
The cable can be rolled up on the underside of the base.

The appliance features an automatic shutoff mode, has a capacity of 1.5 litres and is also available in mint green for those of you who are less playful in the colour department. The sieve in front of the spout can be removed, cleaned and decalcified. Something you probably couldn’t do with my previous kettle. Unfortunately, the maximum display is only visible on the inside. However, this is of no importance to me and my modest tea cooking requirements.

Let’s bring things to the boil.
The sieve at the front of the spout is easily removable.

All my new kettle needs now is a name. «Marzipan the second» is too uninspired. Your ideas are welcome in the comments field below! The best suggestion will be accepted. I promise. And now please excuse me, I've found a matching toaster I'd like to have a little flirt with.

As a massive Disney fan, I see the world through rose-tinted glasses. I worship series from the 90s and consider mermaids a religion. When I’m not dancing in glitter rain, I’m either hanging out at pyjama parties or sitting at my make-up table. P.S. I love you, bacon, garlic and onions.

Guter Hinweis mit dem Mikroplastik. War mir gar nicht bewusst. Das Zeug lauert wirklich überall. :/ Danke!

Bonjour Natalie,
Suite à votre article ventant les mérite d'une bouilloire "sans microplastiques", j'ai été surprise et déçue de constater qu'à l'intérieur de la bouilloire se trouve un élément servant à clipper le couvercle en PLASTIQUE ! Dès le moment que l’eau boue dans la bouilloire, elle va se condenser et rentrer en contact avec le plastique. Cette eau condensée retombe ensuite dans l’eau que l’on va boire. Et cela peut apporter du bisphénol A bien que toute l’enveloppe de la bouilloire soit en métal...
