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 3.8 out of 5 by 51 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very happy High price for a kettle but have now had it for a few months and feel it was a good purchase. Quiet, efficient, like the range of temperature choices particularly as it takes less time to heat water to right temp for coffee (previously I would boil the kettle then wait a few mins for it to cool down), good design with safe pouring/refilling and looks good. This is my first Sage product and would consider buying another on this experience. 23 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Temperature control Great kettle with added temperature control feature. Handy if you need hot rather than boiling water. Useful for a range of tea types. Good design with sound indicator. 12 April 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by It does the job, but I expected more. I was influenced into buying this by my previous purchase of the Sage microwave and the handy risotto maker that came with it. I expected a similar experience with the kettle, but I am not impressed so far. I haven't experimented much with the temperature settings and stick to the one that I always use. It does the job. In term of actual usability, for some reason, when pouring water out of the kettle, the water pours through the lid as well. I am not sure if its by design or if its a fault with the kettle I received. If its by design, its a bad design, prone to accidents. May be I should contact customer service and get this sorted, but I am not sure what to expect and if it will be worth carrying the kettle all the way to the store! 24 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect hot drinks I first saw this type of kettle in the US, so have been delighted with my purchase. No more bitter green tea 09 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really useful product When my bright red, funky kettle packed up I decided to go for usefulness and quality over eye catching style. This kettle is just that. Now I can enjoy instant hot chocolate drinks without the lumps and green tea without the bitter taste. 09 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by matches my toaster. Really like our new kettle, especially the setting for coffee. 22 December 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Premature failure causing household RCD to trip My Sage Smart kettle boiled water merrily for about nine months and was in the process of heating water until, one day, without warning, a loud pop was heard followed by a flash of what seemed a yellowish blue light coming from the corner where the on/off button is located and the aroma of electrical burning. Although the apparent short circuit failed to blow the fuse in the plug it did trip the mains circuit RCD. I reset the RCD trip and, again, the kettle tripped the circuit breaker. I contacted Sage customer services who, to their credit, arranged for a replacement to be sent and the faulty one to be collected, both on the same day. So, although a single star rating for the kettle a big five to Sage. I've not received an engineers report as to what might have caused the kettle's demise, nor do I expect to. However, this kettle produces more steam than other kettles I've used because of a lengthy delay before the auto-off switch becomes activated. I suspect, therefore, the excessive amount of produced steam then condensed and fell back onto the horizontal control panel where the water found its way past the membranes on the selector button. For this reason I'll never again purchase a kettle where the controls are positioned horizontally rather than vertically on the kettle itself. 14 December 2015
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
