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

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 44 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant for tea lovers I love tea and I currently have seven different types to choose from. Recently I learned how teas taste best when brewed at different temperatures. This kettle allows you to tailor your hot water to your choice of tea just by pressing one of the buttons on the stand. It also has a setting for coffee. I've been using it for a month now and have really noticed an improvement in my enjoyment of both tea and coffee. 08 December 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great kettle, but lacks the lower(<80°C) temp range for speciality tea This is a solidly built kettle which has every function you will need. And by "solid build", I really mean it, truly brushed stainless and not some painted-on plastic ones. And the soft touch lid is actually something, steam was never a problem but it did prevents water splitting. Easily recognisable white/red light and peep sound. Handle is very ergonomic and the spout is of great flow control. If you have the money or really care about making tea, this is probably for you. My only complain of this kettle is, although the 5°C step is much appreciated, I would wish it could replace the 80°C setting with a 60°C one, as some speciality green tea/ white tea (especially gyokuro) actually needs such low temperature, whereas I don't think any tea specifically requires 80°C. Also when you're not boiling(straight to 100°C), it will boil in 2/3 steps, which I guess is for more precise temp control(it does wait for a few sec after boiling to beep as well which is good). But sometimes the pause is just too long and seems slightly unnecessary(such pause was not in my previous Bosch kettle), and when compared with it super-fast normal boiling speed. 04 November 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Persistent fault with shut-off I purchased this Sage kettle because it had a vairable temperature setting - It tend to drink coffee from a cafetiere, so it's useful having a 95C setting. It also seemed like a 'premium' product so I expected good quality. However, I'm just about to take the second one back in the space of a year as, like has been seen by other reviewers, it just shuts off and refuses to heat. The first did this within a month, the current one took several months before it developed the same fault. After becoming increasingly temperamental over the last few weeks, it now won't work at all. And I only use it once or twice a day. I'll be getting a different product in replacement. 02 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good kettle but over-priced It looks nice, works well, but is a bit on the expensive side. The selectable temperatures are more of a gimmick than a real benefit 16 September 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by I am Not sure about this product We bought this kettle a few days ago, i wanted a kettle with difference options of settings because I drink lot of free tea. The kettle starts to heat the water but it go silent for a few seconds and them starts again to heat. I am not sure if that is fine. Do you have the same problems ? Thanks 03 September 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Clever kettle My husband was looking for a really quiet kettle! Although this one is less noisy than the previous John Lewis kettle, it still isn't 'silent' but it answers the techno fun for my husband, it has lots of buttons to push for choosing different temperatures. The buttons are for giving the right temperature for tea/coffee making and there is a button you press for lifting the lid. It makes a good cup of tea. 01 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent A neat efficient kettle and it really does make a difference to have the water at the right temperature. Green teas and coffee taste so much better. The 5*C margin for error is a worry as that's the difference between settings. So far no problems. 01 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Clever Kettle Nice design, like the soft opening lid and the different settings. Happy with it. 23 August 2015
