Morphy Richards offered me the opportunity to try out their brand new Brita Accents Brushed Stainless Steel Filter Kettle with Brita Filter technology to see if I could taste test the difference like the BBC have recently as part of the north-south water quality debate.
The kettle boasts some great features, as well as the built-in Brita water filter including 'memo technology' that lets you know when to change your filter, it also includes a 360 cordless base, fast boil and an illuminated water gauge.
I set up my morning cuppa as normal, and made two identical cups of tea - one using my regular kettle and the other using the water filter kettle.
So... Could I taste a difference in the water?
In short, yes. Personally, I did find that the water filter kettle offered a smoother, purer tasting cup of tea than the regular kettle. I could definitely taste the difference in the quality of the tea using filtered water.
Bearing in mind that hard water can also negatively affect the longevity of kitchen appliances, I believe that a kettle with a built-in filter would offer excellent value for money as well as better tasting hot drinks.
But then, don't just take my word for it - try it for yourself!
