the Soft Top

With the lid that opens slowly

The daily cup of tea or coffee provides a rare moment to relax. So how can making a cup of tea be as relaxing as drinking one?

Dual-sided, high-visibility water windows make it easy to make sure you don't heat more water than you need. Also features a push button, soft opening lid to prevent hot water splattering. The 7 cup (1.7L) cordfree jug has a concealed element. And with its 360° directional base, the kettle can be placed down from any angle.

Takes all the stress out of de-stressing.
