Morphy Richards Elipta Espresso Coffee Maker Review

Our latest product from Morphy Richards is the Elipta Espresso Coffee Maker, perfect for waking me up on these cold mornings!

Inside the box you’ll find the Elipta Espresso in brushed stainless steel, a one and a two cup filter, coffee dispenser, a removable water tank and a tamping spoon.  It was easy to set up, with the removable bits needing a wash and the machine a quick run through with water, and we were ready to go!

Elipta Espresso

The Elipta Espresso can be used with E.S.E (Easy Serving Espresso) Pods or espresso coffee just simply chose your filter (one or two cup), pop it inside the coffee dispenser and fill with your choice.  If using espresso coffee use the tamping spoon to pat it down.  The Elipta Espresso will indicate it’s ready to go when the blue light remains steady then select either a one or two cup brew.

The Elipta Espresso also has a steam wand which with make beautiful frothy milk, ideal for creating the perfect Cappuccino or Latte.  Again, this is very simple to use by changing the setting on the front of the machine and turning the dial at the side.  For any tea drinkers, the wand can also be used to dispense hot water.

We’ve made some great tasting coffee with the Elipta and Imogen just loves warm frothy hot chocolate when she comes home from school.  I love the removable water tank which makes i so much easier to clean and fill up.  It can be a little noisy but it’s only to be expected from a machine with the amount of power the Elipta Espresso has.  It looks stunning and even in my postage stamp of a kitchen doesn’t take up too much precious worktop space.

Me and My Kiddywinks readers can receive a hefty £50 off the Elipta Espresso at www.morphyrichards.co.uk by entering the following code CM55BLOG, a great Christmas present at just £89.99 after discount.

Morphy Richards Power Steam Elite Review

I don’t think alone in my dislike for ironing and have to admit that I don’t so an awful lot of it, thanks to the tumble dryer, but when Morphy Richards sent me their Power steam Elite Iron for review I couldn’t help but get a little excited; sad hey?

The Power Steam Elite is a Steam Generator iron which 2400 watts of power, 4.5 bars of steam pressure and 160 grammes of steam output, or put into simple terms a VERY powerful iron.  It also looks pretty darn slick!

If you’ve never used a steam generator iron before then you’re missing out, not only do they have a huge water capacity (this one has a 1.7 litre tank) and as this water is help in a separate tank they make the iron itself an awful lot lighter to hold and therefore easier to move.  They also produce continuous steam making light work of heavy creases and taking the “pressing” work out of ironing.  They can also be used for vertical steaming meaning that curtains can be ironed (if you do that kind of thing!) in place.

The Power Steam Elite also boast a ceramic soleplate which makes it easy to glide over your clothes, it also has three steam settings low, medium or high which are controlled by the rather fancy push button controls on the back of the steam base.  There is also and on/off button a blue light which will indicate when when the water tank needs refiling and red light which will indicate when it needs cleaning.  It also has a very nifty safety feature which will automatically shut off the iron if the steam button is not pressed for ten minutes, great if you’re distracted by children or the phone.

The Power Steam Elite is a mighty powerful iron which has made ironing a pleasure less of a chore, jeans only need to be ironed on one side and I can even iron my linen trousers in seconds without having to spray them with water first and all of my family look very smart and crease free!

Morphy Richards Never Loses Suction Lift Away Vacuum Cleaner

As part of the Morphy Richard Innovators team for 2012 I was sent their newest vacuum cleaner the ” Never Loses Suction Lift Away Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner” to test drive and tell you all about.

This vacuum clean may not have the catchiest name but it has some amazing features, which include:

  • Never Loses Suction Cyclone Technology ensuring constant pick-up performance.
  • Washable HEPA 13 Filtration, trapping 99.5% of dirt and molecules; perfect for allergy sufferers.
  • Variety of tools. Extra long cervice tool, cervice tool, dusting brush and turbo nozzle making sure you always have the right accessory for the job.
  • Lift-away canister, making stairs and other awkward areas a doddle.
  • Suitable for all floor types.  Just a simple switch on the brushbar power switch and you’re ready to move to hard floor, rugs or carpets.
  • Pivoting floorhead making it a dream to manoeuvre.
  • Extra long power cable giving an amazing 12.5 metres of cleaning range in lift-away mode.

When my Never Loses Suction Lift Away Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner (or 73411) I was thrilled to see that it was purple, my favourite colour and one of the main reasons I brought my last vacuum cleaner.  I opened the box to see that it wasn’t assembled but this only took a few minutes and if I’m honest the assembly has probably helped me get to grips with what does what.  With the vacuum ready to go and the kids in bed, I decided to give downstairs a quick going over, it been done that afternoon but with the kiddywinks running in and out from the garden and the sandpit all afternoon it was certainly needed.

I was really impressed with the manoeuvrability of it and it’s light (6.9kg) and easy to push around corners, under tables and in between chairs.  The extra long power cable was really handy too, we live in a 1930’s end terrace it’s not massive but I usually have to make 3 plug changes to do a proper job of downstairs and two upstairs, this time I managed to do the whole downstairs just being plugged into the hall socket!  The pick up is fantastic and where I would normally have to brush, vacuum and mop to get rid of the grainy sand from my kitchen floor, almost all of it had gone with a quick vacuum.

My favourite feature has to be the lift-away canister which is pure genius, not only does it take the weight of the vacuum cleaner down to 3.1kg but it’s great for cleaning the stairs and other hard to reach areas.  It’s simple to do, just release the handle and canister, add your chosen attachment and your ready to go.  I’ve used it to vacuum my stairs, sofas and even my car!

The Never Loses Suction Lift Away Vacuum Cleaner is brilliantly designed and combines the best of both an upright and a cylinder in one.  It comes with a 5 year guarantee and in my opinion has a far superior performance than the other purple vacuum in our house, just look at the filth it’s picked for our floors in week!

Morphy Richards have a special offer for Me and My Kiddywinks readers and are offering a whopping £100 off the Never Loses Suction Lift Away Vacuum Cleaner making it an incredible £99.00 when you use this discount code NLS100BLOG at www.morphyrichards.co.uk
