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

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 38 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not what I expected. First kettle was noisy starting up & the window had what appeared to be glue coming from it. The second was again noisy & leaked from the lid even when pooring gently. This appeared to be condensation from the boiling running from the lid. 09 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best kettle we've ever had This replaced a run of faulty kettles (another brand) which JL replaced without issue. After two we decided to pay a little more and get this Sage kettle. Really Really pleased with it. 26 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A good choice After two useless cheap kettles, it is good to have a sturdy one. More expensive but good to use and I feel sure this one will last, Perhaps a little heavy but really nice to handle and looks good too.. A good choice for me. 20 May 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by We're returning this kettle Yes it boils water and it does so fairly quickly, so it does the job it is meant to do but we are returning it for the following reasons: * It really is not that quiet. It is far noisier than our prior kettle. It really roars into action and then becomes slightly calmer, but overall noisy. * The outside of the kettle gets very hot. Our last kettle was double skinned and stayed fairly cool on the outside saving our hands from being scolded (when putting the toast on - as has recently happened) * It feels cheap. It does not feel solid at all and the bell that 'dings' when the switch clicks continually 'dings' when moving the kettle around as well. * The 'soft opening lid' is pointless and, reading other reviews, will potentially go wrong over time. * We've had the kettle for just over 2 weeks and the water gauge is already silting-up and becoming hard to read. Also, the gauge does not illuminate, which is a handy feature on other kettle makes. On the plus side water does boil quickly, the kettle is light and the lid is big making it easy to fill, but that's about it. I have other Heston products and they're good but this one, for us, doesn't cut the mustard. 15 May 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Giving up on this kettle This kettle has great looks and quality feel to the handle and lid BUT fails on 2 basic points 1. It does not switch off quickly enough after boiling, producing clouds of steam 2. It has to be emptied after every use or any water left quickly becomes tainted and undrinkable on the next boiling. I have tried all the recommended solutions but the taint soon comes back. This hasn't happened on the previous 2 kettles I've had. So regrettably this kettle will have to go back. 29 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Elegant looking kettle This kettle is good in all respect except that it is rather noisy. In looks it is almost exactly the same as the Breville Cafe Series kettle which we had for several years. When this 'died' we were pleased to find this kettle which is far superior in looks to any of the other kettles that we have seen. it also has no gimmicky coloured lights which is another plus factor. 21 April 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by misrepresented on the website I bought this and a toaster both described as 'silver' in colour. I bought them as a bundle and I presumed they would match. Unfortunately not at all. The finish on both is very different. 30 March 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Wouldn't buy it again We bought this kettle about 18 months ago and the idea of it is great but in practice we're not very happy at all. The lid now has a crack in it and has been super-glued as otherwise boiling water pours out when filling a cup and is dangerous. The writing on the kettle has come off (a good job we know which setting is which) and last night it stopped working completely. Unfortunately I can't now find the receipt and it was purchased with vouchers so nothing else to do but buy a new one. It definitely won't be a Sage kettle though! 29 March 2015
