It's energy saving also, achieving a 66% energy saving when boiling one cup of water compared to 1 litre. The Adventure Kettle is available in two finishes - Polished and Brushed. Both of these have black plastic accents. There's also a 2-slice and 4-slice matching toaster available.

The Adventure Kettle is designed to be convenient to use. It has a "perfect pour spout" which directs the flow of water in such a way to reduce splashing and spilling. There's also a removable and washable fine mesh filter behind the spout which is designed to catch particles of limescale. The lift-off lid facilitates easy refilling.

Specification

We now look at the features in more detail:

  • Capacity - The capacity of the kettle is 1.7 litres. This serves around 7 cups.
  • Design - The kettle has an open handle and a lift-off lid. Lift-off lids are more durable than their hinged counterparts.
  • Rapid Boil / Energy Saving - The kettle features a rapid boil 3000W heating element which boils one cup of water (235ml) in 45 seconds. Approximately 66% of energy is saved when boiling one cup of water compared to 1 litre. There are rapid boil zone markers inside the kettle to help you measure out accurate amounts of water.
  • Perfect Pour Spout - The spout is designed to cause water to flow into cups without spilling or splashing, therefore keeping your worktops dry.
  • Filter - There's a limescale filter which sits behind the spout. It's fine mesh in order to catch tiny particles of limescale. It can be removed and rinsed under a tap.
  • 360 Degree Base - The kettle has a 360 degree swivel base. The kettle can therefore be placed down on it facing any direction. This is convenient for both left and right handers. The underside of the base has room to store excess electrical cable.
