Of particular interest is the textured design. With vertical grooves, a high gloss finish and polished satin chrome accents, the Impressions Kettle has rather a unique and stylish design. On top of this, it's available in a multitude of colours, so one of them is bound to match your kitchen. The colours are as follows: black, black & rose gold, red, cream and white. Pictured in this review is the white model.

We list the main features below:

  • Capacity - 1.7 Litres, or approximately 6-8 cups. Ideal for large families and offices.
  • Dimensions - 16.2cm x 20.7cm x 25.5cm
  • Rapid Boil - The kettle has 3kW of power which gives it the ability to rapidly boil water.
  • Rear Water Window - The kettle has a rear water window so you can fill it with the amount of water you require, therefore saving on energy.
  • Limescale Filter - There's a limescale filter inside the spout. It's removable, washable and reusable. Not only does it make your drink taste better, but it improves the drink's look by filtering impurities.
  • Concealed Heating Element - The heating element is concealed in the bottom of the kettle. Together with the removable lid, this makes cleaning the inside easy.
  • 360 Degree Base - The kettle sits on a 360 degree base, meaning the kettle can pivot around it. This is ideal for homes and workplaces with left and right handed people. The base also has non-slip feet, which work even on wet worktops. Underneath the base is space to store any excess electrical cable.
  • Lift Off Lid - The lid is completely removable, allowing for easy filling and easy cleaning.
  • Illuminating Power Switch - When boiling, the power switch lights up red.

To summarise, the Breville Impressions Kettle is a stylish uniquely designed kettle with extensive functionality. The high gloss, textured design with chrome accents brings style to your kitchen. If you're after a kitchen redesign, it may be worth buying the matching toaster too. All things considered, we rate the Impressions Kettle 4.5 out of 5 stars.
