Black & Decker Cordless Kettle and Black & Decker Deluxe Heater
PET Approved Products: Phantasy Star Online, Kung Fu Chaos, Tao Feng and TravelJohn

Electric Kettle in the Kitchen,
Deluxe Heater in the Basement

LACK & DECKER produces the best and most innovative products for the home. Our Product Evaluation Team reviewed two hot items which we think worthy of your attention.

Classic Cordless Electric Kettle has an easy-to-clean stainless steel body. The 2-litre kettle lifts off its swivel base by the cool-touch handle for easy filling or pouring.

It comes with a safety thermostat that kicks in if the kettle boils dry, and indicator lights with an energy saving auto-off when boiling is done.

Order the Electric Kettle (APP DKS700) at for $49.99.

Heatwave Deluxe Utility Heater is a heavy duty product with power to heat small or large areas such as basements, workshops or garages.

If you happen to tip over the heater, it will automatically shut itself off. Two bars on the front prevent it from burning a surface if itís knocked over face down. Now thatís innovative.

More preventive measures: the heat sensor changes color when the front grill becomes hot to the touch. Not only that, but if the cord is damaged, the unit will shut down to protect against electrical fire.

You have a choice of keeping the heater on up to four hours before it shuts itself off. The unit will also turn itself on automatically if the temperature drops below 40 degrees F to protect against freezing pipes or frost damage.

Donít put it away after winter. During summer you can keep the fan on to circulate cool air.
