Product information

The Soft Open Kettle from Sage by Heston Blumenthal is incredibly stylish, easy to use and will look the part in any modern kitchen.

High quality design and impressive functionality allow you to enjoy the ritual of making your cups of tea with this kettle.

A soft grip handle, quiet boil element, and a soft opening lid make brewing a cup of tea almost as tranquil as drinking one. The quiet boil element reduces the size of the steam bubbles to reduce noise while heating. The push button and soft opening lid prevents hot water from spluttering out and staggers steam release.

A concealed 3kW element ensures rapid boiling, allowing you to get your desired temperature quickly and efficiently. A large 1.7L capacity allows you to cater for a number of guests with ease. A large spout provides safe easy pouring and dual water windows allow for easy viewing of the fill level. A limescale filter improves the quality and taste of your drinks and cord storage under the base tops off this model.

Sage by Heston Blumenthal the Soft Open Kettle, Silver 4.1 5 19 19
Looks great new... Looks great when brand new, however. It soon marks as water on the outside evaporates when kettle is boiled to leave rings on the brushed metal, and they're not easy to remove. Rust spots on the boiling plate appeared almost immediately upon use. Otherwise it's great. It boils nice and fast, ping upon boiling is quaint and it's not too heavy to hold. As with any mass produced item, there are going to be problems with some units, c'est la vie. Will be going back when I next pass by a JL. 29 July 2014
It is fine It does boil water and it looks okay but compared to previous siemens kettle it falls short. I would have expected some developments in kettle design and manufacture but we seem to have gone backwards. I spent a while browsing before buying so this probably the best of what is on offer. Either the ping is broken or I don't notice it anymore, should not be a deal breaker for potentials purchasers. The difficult to keep smudge free surface and how flipping hot it is on the outside is more of a concern. old fabulous kettle was barely warm on the outside with a brushed finish that never needed polished. If any kettle manufacturer reads this, please just replicate the Siemens Porsche kettle circa ten years ago and don't bother with any expensive research. 25 June 2014
Does what it says Looking for kettle with good capacity but not overly heavy as have arthritic hands. This Sage kettle fit the bill perfectly. Well balanced shape; boils quickly; stylish looks; clear volume levels - extremely satisfied with purchase. 19 June 2014
Looks great Super looking kettle with no frills. Just boils and switches off. Light shows when it is on. Minimum boil is just enough for two mugs. Fingerprints show though, being stainless steel, but can easily be removed with baby oil. Well pleased with purchase for the look, though could have saved money with a basic kettle. It does nothing special. 27 May 2014
So noisy! Just bought this kettle and it is so noisy that I don't know if it 'pings' when boiled. Will give it a further week and if it stays as bad, it's going back. 25 May 2014
VERY PLEASED - WELL WORTH THE MONEY we're very pleased with this kettle - it's the best kettle we've ever bought ! The hinged lid opens up to quite a large opening compared to other kettles so it's extremely easy to fill - my left-handed husband finds it as easy as I do to use - no dribbles or spills when you pour - relatively quiet when boiling - the ping noise when it finishes boiling is very quiet and ours only pings once so we don't think it's annoying as other reviewers have said...you don't have to push the lid to make sure it's locked so that's a great feature too....it looks great ...well worth paying more for this kettle - compared to the cheaper kettles you could buy, this kettle really is superb in every way 06 April 2014
Disappointed. Had this kettle a few days now and it is driving me mad with the ding a ling sound it makes every time it is picked up, not just when it has boiled. The ringing/pinging is exactly the same sound as a bicycle bell. The body casing gets extremely hot something my last Siemens kettle did not do. It is also very noisy. The balance is good and the rubber handle comfortable to hold. The flip top makes it easy to fill. Having exhausted the present market, this choice was the best of a bad bunch. 22 March 2014
Where's the ping? It was only on reading these reviews after I'd bought this kettle that I discovered it should ping when the water's boiled. Mine doesn't, so it's going back to be exchanged. Looks nice, the gauge is easy to read and the kettle does the job. As another reviewer has noted, there's no insulation inside the kettle, so the casing is as hot as the contents. Fortunately we have no young children to burn themselves. 09 February 2014
