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.

Q & As


Sage by Heston Blumenthal the Soft Open Kettle, Silver 4.4 5 14 14
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 don't have to push the lid to make sure it's locked so that's a great feature 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
A reasonable, reliable and good lucking kettle We chose this kettle due to the price, which was very reasonable. It has turned out to be a really good buy, the features are really clever and really work! I love the 'ping' as it automatically turns off. Would recommend to anyone! 04 February 2014
Quality & Style It's taken me ages to find the right style, colour, and efficiency at the right price and this ticks all the boxes. Perfect. Highly recommend it. 04 February 2014
Good Decent kettle, no leaks an fairly quick and quiet boiling. Soft rubber lid makes a good seal, but button on handle to open the lid keeps sticking and feels a bit cheap. 28 January 2014
Highly recommend!! I was bought this item after we had a very bad experience from a different electrical kettle and I was kind of disappointed until we bought this kettle and I have to say this is really good quality for the price. I highly recommend to buy this item if you are looking for a very professional electrical kettle! 28 January 2014
Cool kettle What's to like? Soft grip non-slip comfortable handle easy to hold; wide opening lid easy to fill; clear water guages at sides not obscured by handle; foldaway cord; simple sturdy on/off switch; elegant lines in brushed steel; quality filter at spout; beautiful water drops in clear lid; the right 'ding' when it's boiled; fast to boil. I've used it for about a month and love this kettle. Hope it lasts, though have the reassurance of the JL warranty. 27 January 2014
