Our Review

The Tower Bottega Kettle is a smart, traditional kettle which is classic in its design, but modern in its functionality. Its most prominent and notable feature is the temperature dial on the front. It allows you to boil water to your desired temperature. This is particularly useful if you're into herbal teas, or even if you just prefer your coffee brewed at a lower temperature.

The classic style completes the look. The kettle is available in three colours schemes. These are black & rose gold, marble & rose gold and white & rose gold (pictured). In the case of the white & rose gold colour scheme, the stainless steel body is coloured white and the accents (part of the handle, lid, power switch and temperature dial) are coloured in a lovely rose gold.

The handle is particularly noteworthy. Unlike the vertical handles on the side of most kettles, this kettle breaks the trend by having a horizontal handle over the top. The handle is metal with a soft plastic covering to allow for ease of grip.

Specification

The main features of the Bottega Kettle are as follows:

  • Capacity - 1.7 Litres, or around 7 cups.
  • Dimensions - 28.8cm x 22.0cm x 19.6cm.
  • Temperature Dial - As discussed above.
  • Rapid Boil - The kettle is designed to rapidly boil water. Your guests won't have long to wait for their cups of tea. It's also particularly useful if you need a quick cup of tea before leaving the house.
  • Quiet Boil - The kettle is designed to boil quietly. Perfect for open wall kitchens and busy offices.
  • 360 Degree Base - There's a 360 degree base to make placing the kettle down easy (no having to line it up with the base). Having a base means the kettle itself is cordless, so the boiling water can be moved anywhere without having to unplug everything.
  • Boil Dry Protection - The kettle will not continue boiling if the water evaporates, or if it's boiled with no water in. It will automatically turn off for safety.
  • Automatic Shut Off - When the kettle is up to its maximum temperature, it will turn itself off.

Our View

In our view, the Tower Bottega Kettle delivers both in terms of design and functionality. The vintage design looks beautiful, particularly the white & rose gold model. The white stainless steel body together with the rose gold accents really do hit the mark. The features are mostly standard, except the notable temperature dial on the front, making it perfect for boiling water at a specific temperature.

If you love to try herbal teas, or brew coffee in a particular way, then this kettle is most definitely for you. We rate this kettle 4.5 out of 5 stars.
