    I never really took a lot of notice and it seemed to boil up pretty quick, but our current kettle that has developed a leak is only 1kw. It wasn't until I almost picked up a bargain in Tesco yesterday that I thought arrrr :coffee:, any standard kettle in usually over 2kw or even 3kw for a fast boil.

    That will be blowing the trip too often, especially in Spain!

    We don't want one of those silly travel types...where are folk buying them from these days?

    We've been using this one from Lakeland

    http://www.lakeland.co.uk/13661/Lakeland-Travel-Kettle

    Appreciate its a travel one, but it's great quality, is Stainless Steel and easily stows away into a drawer.

    Low height wide base means it never gets stowed away being completely stable.
    Fits under filtered tap in toilet.
    Boils in under 5 mins on inverter when full.

    An alternative is to buy a single ring electric hob and use the same kettle whether on gas or electric. The hob will be useful for heating saucepans of food as well.

    I have not trawled the internet but something like this might be suitable:

    www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-Premi-Electrical-1-5kW-Electric-Portable-Kitchen-Single-Hot-Plate-Hob-/201436140487?hash=item2ee68793c7:g:MFMAAOSw0HVWA8Kn

    Cost us €44 in France and another one at £26 from Ebay Italy so the UK is a great price and for newbies theres a £5 discount if you subscribe to their news letter which offsets the postage

    You can't beat an 'Informed indicator light'

    I saw this one at Los Pinos, Peniscola, I read it as giving me permission to gather up any towels and throw them in the pool :LOL:.

    If you could have heard the abuse I've just had to endure by suggesting we don't replace the kettle...the air has turned blue o_O.

    I tried to apply the same logic as the time I suggested black hand towels so they didn't need to be washed so often...:rolleyes:.
