Our Review

The Swan Retro Dome Kettle aims to bring a retro feel to the modern kitchen, a feat which it achieves rather well. It features a large capacity dome design. One key difference between this and modern kettles is the handle is on top rather than on the side.

To match almost any kitchen, Swan sell this kettle in 8 colours. These are black, blue (pictured), cream, green, grey, pink, red and orange. You should therefore have no trouble matching this kettle to your kitchen. The use of chrome complements the coloured body.

In terms of construction, the kettle is compact and sturdy. The main body is made from stainless steel. The spout, lid and handle are chrome.

About Swan

The Swan brand is one of the most common in the UK for small home appliances. It's known for its reliability and trustworthiness. You will also find the Swan brand on toasters, microwaves, sewing machines, and more.


Let's take a look at the specification:

  • Capacity - 1.8 Litres, which is slightly larger than average. This equates to just over 8 cups.
  • Fast Boil - There's a concealed 3kW heating element inside the kettle which gives it its fast boiling capability.
  • Spout - The spout has been designed to reduce drips and spills. It does this by concentrating the water into a narrow stream.
  • Water Gauge - There's a see-through water gauge on the side of the kettle which marks 4 cups, 6 cups, 7 cups and 8 cups. Handy for accurately filling the kettle with the water you require, therefore saving electricity and reducing boiling time.
  • 360 Degree Base - The kettle sits and boils on a 360 degree base. It's a convenient mounting point for the kettle to sit on. It's suitable for left handed and right handed users.
  • Cordless - The kettle itself is cordless.
  • Automatic Shut Off - When boiled, the kettle will shut itself off.
  • Boil Dry Protection - As an additional safety feature, if the water boils away, or the kettle is switched on without any water in, it will automatically turn itself off.

In summary, the Retro Dome Kettle does what it says on the tin. Its design is stylish, and as a bonus there are plenty of modern features for convenience such as fast boiling, an easy pour spout, etc. Its design would suit both retro and contemporary kitchens. We give the Retro Dome Kettle 4 out of 5 stars.
