Recognise this one? You bought it thinking it would last forever but then it broke, you couldn’t fix it and had to chuck it out? That’s a nomination for the Weakest Link Award. Your chance to vote out products which seem to have been designed to break, are impossible to repair or which would cost more to repair than to buy a new one. The Award winner will be redesigned over the summer.
So far kettles are in the lead, closely followed by headphones.
