Tea and Toast with style!

Uncategorized | February 22, 2014 | By

There are some pieces of kitchen equipment that we simply take for granted.  How often do you boil the kettle?  I know that mine is on many times every day, not just for tea and coffee, but to boil water for vegetables or stock as well.  This Morphy Richards Chroma is a sleek, modern jug kettle in shiny black and silver.  It’s fast boil and surprisingly light.

I really loved the lid which isn’t the usual hinged type but lifts right out with a ring handle and a good seal around the top.  The cup measurements are really clear on the side too.

The Morphy Richards Chroma 2 slice toaster has good clear controls with a range of heat settings.  It toasted evenly and quickly, great for breakfast toast or a quick snack with cheese.

Both items did the job you expect with the minimum of fuss and the maximum of style and get a big thumbs up from me!

Thanks to Morphy Richards for the kettle and toaster to review, I was not paid for this review and all opinions are my own.

Many thanks too, to my friend Avril for the use of her kitchen and beautiful Portmerion Pamona crockery as I have major building work going on in my house!

    A very neat little set – like it. Although I have an Aga and tea and toast are both made on that, but if I didn't, I think I'd be rather tempted by these…

    I like the set, very stylish but having lived with a four-slice toaster I couldn't cope with a two slice any more! x

    A good quality butter is all that hot toast needs – but it has to be hot so the butter melts

    Can't beat a bit of honey and some real butter on hot toast ๐Ÿ™‚

    This set looks great and I'm crossing everything to win as both my kettle and toaster are broken!

    Our toaster is on the blink and our kettle ancient, so I shall cross fingers for this one.

    I love toast and eat a lot of it. Hot chilli sauce is one of my favourites for breakfast – it wakes me up.

    This is a fab combo! I love butter (real butter!) on slightly cooled toast so that it sits on the top and doesn't melt in. Then depending on my mood it's spread with either Bovril or peanut butter. [Savoury all the way ๐Ÿ™‚ ]

    I love marmite on toast done the Nigella way – mix softened butter and marmite together, then fridge it til it's nearly set before spreading on hot toast….mmmmmm!!

    If toasting a thick doorstep of freshly baked crusty bread I like lime marmalade; on more basic breads I'll have honey, marmalade, Marmite, jam or thick-cut orange marmalade. Fingers crossed hoping for a little bit of luck now
