The Swan Retro Jug Kettle will give you a blast from the past. Its design is based on one of the original Swan kettles, but its features are very much modern. Such features include a 360 degree base, a 3kW heating element and numerous safety features.
So as to match any kitchen it may find itself in, the Retro Jug Kettle is available in black, blue (pictured), cream, green, grey, pink, red and orange. We particularly like the orange version. The design is brought together by the metal details on the spout, lid and handle. The handle is curved and connected to the top of the kettle only.
Trading for around about 100 years, Swan are known for their high quality home appliances. These appliances include kettles, toasters, microwaves and sewing machines. They're a well established and trustworthy brand.
Without further delay, let's take a look at the specification:
There's an easy to use and convenient water gauge situated under the handle. It marks 2 cups, 4 cups and 6 cups in large writing. It means you can fill the kettle with what you need, therefore allowing it to boil quicker while saving energy in the process. The gauge is pictured below:
Unlike the kettle the Retro Jug Kettle is based on, there's a 360 degree base. This means the kettle can be placed facing any angle on it (useful for left and right handers).

Overall, the Retro Jug Kettle is a good kettle. It certainly achieves its purpose and gives off a retro feel. We particularly like how new and modern features have been integrated into the design, giving the best of both worlds. We rate this kettle 4 out of 5 stars.
