Sage By Heston Blumenthal - The Smart Kettle - Review

If I have a kettle I expect it to boil water and that is it....I didn't even know that you boil water at different temperatures for different kinds of tea and coffee....I do now though thanks to winning the weekly #WinWeds giveaway that ao.com have on Twitter.....

I was lucky enough to win the Sage By Heston Blumenthal The Smart Kettle.....

It looks great!! Very fancy indeed! I love the sleek silver design and it feels so light compared to my old kettle....The handle is easy to grip and you can just feel the quality of it!! 

This kettle is especially for a household where a lot of fine tea is being drunk.....The five temperature settings on this kettle are ideal for green, white, oolong and black tea as well as for coffee. These settings take the guesswork out of making the perfect cuppa.....

It has a rapid boil function and a 'keep warm' setting to hold the temperature of the water for up to 20 minutes which is great if you have guests over...

 It seems to boil quicker than my old kettle and is a lot quieter....I like that fact that when it has boiled it beeps to let you know...

I like the feature of the lid...It has a slow opening feature which helps reduce the risk of boiling droplets escaping onto your hand and staggers the steam being released....I have found it easy to pour the water out.....There is no spillage especially when pouring it into a pan for pasta or potatoes....

At 1.7 litres the kettle holds enough water to suit the average family.....

If you are a big tea drinker who cares passionately about tea then this is perfect for you!!.....If you can afford it!!.....I personally wouldn't pay £89 for a kettle but that's just me....This is a luxury and would make an ideal gift for someone who already has everything and has plenty of time on their hands, and loves tea of course.....

I won this kettle in a giveaway and was sent it free of charge...This is my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own...
