Product Overview

Designed by Heston Blumenthal. The Sage BKE820UK Smart kettle was designed by Heston Blumenthal to not only look great in your kitchen but make sure you get the perfect brew. It has 5 pre-programmed temperature buttons so you can select the right one for the tea you’re making, whether its green tea or builders! Once the kettle heats to the selected temperature it switches itself off. There’s a function to keep the water warm for up to 20 minutes after heating, really handy if you have friends round and fancy a top-up. Its 1.7 litre capacity is great if you have a big family or you’re entertaining!

    The VERY Smart Kettle

    "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... The Sage By Heston Blumenthal The Smart Kettle 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....."

    Good looks

    "Quiet and quick, with variable heating options. Only negative is the transparent lid; which gets water droplets on it, and slighty detracts fron the overall look."

    Super Kettle

    "My daughter and I have noticed how different our tea and coffee tastes compared to other kettles we've used: the different temperatures on the kettle make such a difference. We were so pleased that my daughter recommended it to friends, who bought one, and they've noticed the difference too. It's not the quickest of kettles to get to the boil, but it's worth the wait!"

    Maggers Review

    "Any coffee drinkers, green tea drinkers or gadget lovers will think this is great. The kettle will boil at the correct temperature for tea, coffee, green tea etc, as it has seperate buttons. Only setback is minor in that it could boil quicker, due to it's sensors checking the temperature. But it is reasonably fast anyway."

    Nice little boiler

    "Thought I would treat the kitchen to a nice new kettle. I recently purchased a Sage juicer and was very impressed with it so thought the kettle would be of the same standard, I was not disappointed"
