    I find the sound of a whistling kettle very comforting, I suppose it’s the association of the noise with mum making a brew as we got in. But as I have tried to make my van as Green as possible using the gas when I have lots of electric seems a bit daft. So my question is, has anyone got a whistling electric kettle? Of about 1-1.5kw and 1-1.5l and if so where from. I can find plenty of 2.5-3kw ones but no small whistling ones.

    Now I've read the post correctly...:Blush: I have no idea where you can get a whistling electric kettle, is there such a thing?

    yes I have one, bought it from Asda's I think. It's a Morphy Richards and Silver in colour with a orange glow light on it too.

    i love the whistling element, but if it gets too much it can also be turned off.

    Thanks for that Terry, I'll need to have a look for one of these at Tesco next time, I couldn't see it on their website. Our gas "whistler" causes great amusement if you leave it on whilst chatting outside to someone:RollEyes: Ideal for quick stops on the road, but we need to get an electric jobby when on hook-up:thumb:
