The Haden Guildford Glass Kettle is a modern electric kettle with a dazzlingly clear glass water window and an overall beautiful design. The kettle is functional to the modern standard, having features such a rapid boiling, a concealed heating element, and a blue LED illumination. Above and below the glass window is brushed stainless steel, which fits in well together with the glass and black plastic handle. As a bonus, the kettle is BPA free.

We now go into more detail:

  • Capacity - 1.7 Litres, or around 6-8 cups.
  • Dimensions - 15.6cm x 22.0cm x 23.6cm.
  • Fast Boil - Concealed under the kettle's floor is a powerful 3kW electric heating element. When switched on, this heating element will boil water rapidly.
  • Filter - There's a removable and washable filter just inside the spout. It can easily be removed and washed under a tap as and when limescale builds up.
  • Strix Thermostat - The kettle uses a Strix thermostat. Strix thermostats are known for their reliability and long lasting life.
  • Illumination - When boiling, a ring underneath the glass lights up blue as well as the power switch. The blue light is via LEDs which are very robust.
  • Flip Lid - The lid is hinged and is controlled by a button on top of the handle.
  • BPA Free - The kettle is entirely BPA free, therefore putting to rest any concerns about chemicals being leached from the plastic.
  • Automatic Shut Off - When up to temperature, the kettle will automatically stop boiling the water.
  • Boil Dry Protection - If the water boils away completely, the heating element will switch off to stop damage to the kettle.

Water Window

The glass water window is huge. It spans almost the entire circumference of the kettle, the only exception being where the handle is attached. It also has a water gauge on the glass, marking 0.5L (minimum), 1.0L, 1.5L and 1.7L (maximum).

360 Degree Base

The operational base is of the 360 degree variety. Simply place the kettle down at any angle to achieve a quick and easy boil. Perfect for left and right handers as the base doesn't need to be moved to accommodate individual needs.
