Sage by Heston Blumenthal the Smart Kettle

Product information

The Smart Kettle from Sage by Heston Blumenthal exudes elegance, high quality design and innovation.

This smart kettle will revolutinise the way you drink tea. To extract the most delicate flavours, different teas need to be steeped at different temperatures and this kettle lets you choose, for the perfect brew. Five pre-programmed temperature buttons tell you which temperature to select for which type of tea. It heats to the selected temperature, turns itself off, and if selected, will even keep warm for 20 minutes after heating.

The smart kettle features an ample 1.7L cord free jug. A push button and soft opening lid prevents hot water splatter for peace of mind. A quiet boil element and a scale filter tops off this model.

Q & As

Sage by Heston Blumenthal the Smart Kettle 3.6 5 19 19
Good idea but not so hot in practice Our kettle developed exactly the same fault with the controls as the reviewer of 3 January. I took it back to the store and they gave me a refund without me even asking for one, so I was very impressed with the service. Shame, because I found it quite useful being able to restrict the heat to something less than boiling point - but if the product ceases to work after 6 months it's not really worth bothering with. 12 January 2015
Had to replaced twice in 6 months! The kettle is controlled by the base which developed a fault very quickly - randomly switching between options, not allowing you to select anything and making a constant beeping noise. John Lewis were fab and replaced it however the SAME thing happened with the next one. Will not try a third time! Definitely would not recommend this product - the toaster however, is great no issues with that!! 03 January 2015
Poor quality again We bought this together with a two slice matching toaster. As with the toaster, on unpacking the kettle we found it badly marked, so returned it and chose something else 16 December 2014
Lacks insulation So far so good. The kettle seems good in terms of its functions, and it looks nice. The main drawback in my view is that the exterior of the kettle lacks insulation and can get very hot as a result. So make sure you don't burn your fingers! 30 September 2014
Changed for simpler one! Ordered this one, but changed for the simpler one thanks to JL excellent service. We didn't drink all the variety of teas, but on reflection as winter approached it would have been good for filling hot water bottles! 24 August 2014
More than meets the eye This looks like an excellent kettle with lots of options to select the right temperature for various beverages. It's not too heavy, sleek styling and has an excellent finish. But... The minimum amount of water you have to use to make it work accurately is much more than I would normally use to make myself a cuppa, it has to be switched on and off at the mains otherwise uses electricity all the time to power the lights on the switches and the '95C coffee' temperature was only just lukewarm. Pretty disappointed really. 21 August 2014
Loving it! Looks beautiful and works wonderfully, yes it takes longer to get to 95 degrees than it does to boil, but unless you're really impatient then it really isn't that important - great tasting coffee is - to my mind at least 12 August 2014
Boils and bells The different temperatures for different teas really do seem to improve the taste. Just don't get hung up on the fact that the kettle stops in the middle of heating while it thinks about the temperature you've set. It gets there in the end. The kettle and its base are very elegant. The contents gauge is quite easy to read, the handle and opening mechanism are comfortable and easy to use. It pours well. No lime-scale filter and no insulation to the main body. Whether you like the ping when the water is ready is a matter of taste. I find it quite useful. 04 March 2014
