Our Review

The Tower Empire Kettle is a 1920s inspired kettle with an embossed geometric design as well as a whole host of features. The Empire Kettle is available in three colours, namely black (pictured), grey and midnight blue. In all three cases, the same textured design is present as are the brass accents on the lid, handle and lower body.

One of the more notable aspects of this kettle is the fact that it's a rapid boil kettle. It will boil 1 regular sized cup of water in 45 seconds, meaning you can catch that final cup of tea or coffee before leaving for work.
