Our Review

The Vonshef Variable Temperature Control Kettle is a brushed stainless steel cordless electric kettle with five temperature settings and corresponding five illuminating colours. It's a rapid boil kettle, with features such as a limescale filter, a 360 degree swivel base, a concealed heating element, and a STRIX controller.

In terms of style, the kettle is tall and thin. It looks modern, and would suit contemporary and classic kitchens. It makes good use of black plastic accents (i.e. the handle and the top of the lid), and combines these well with the stainless steel brushed finish.

Variable Temperature Control

The Vonshef Kettle is designed to give you control over the temperature of your water. Such a feature is particularly handy if members of your household prefer different hot drinks. This kettle is perfect for drinks such as green tea, white tea, oolong, coffee, French Press coffee, etc. There are five temperature settings on offer which are 50C, 70C, 80C, 90C and 100C. So as to indicate which setting is selected, the kettle will illuminate in five different colours, as shown below:

Keep Warm Function

As a bonus, the kettle is equipped with keep warm functionality which will maintain the temperature of the water for up to 30 minutes.

About Vonshef

Vonshef is a brand of kitchen appliances. They have in their range products such as mixers, blenders, waffle makers, coffee machines, food processors, kettles and more. They're a well known and reliable brand which sell high quality goods. They're definitely a safe bet.

Specification

We now look at the list of features:

  • Capacity - 1.7 Litres. Or around 6-7 cups, depending on preferences. Most kettles are either 1.7 or 1.5 litres.
  • Dimensions - 26.3cm x 23.3cm x 21.8cm.
  • Rapid Boil - The kettle has a powerful in-built 3kW heating element which allows it to rapidly boil water.
  • Variable Temperature Control - As discussed above.
  • Keep Warm Functionality - As discussed above.
  • STRIX Control - The kettle uses STRIX brand electronics to operate. This is a fairly standard controller and it's often found in kettles. It's chosen for its longevity.
  • Water Filter - The kettle is equipped with an easily removable limescale filter which can be rinsed under a tap when needed.
  • 360 Degree Base - The kettle boils on a 360 degree base. It swivels around this base and can be placed down on it facing any direction, making it perfect for left and right handed people.
  • Concealed Heating Element - The heating element is concealed underneath the base. Doing this increases the life of the element (due to it not getting clogged up with limescale) and it also looks more visually appealing.
  • Boil Dry Protection - The kettle will not boil itself dry. It will switch itself off before this happens.

Clear Water Gauge

There's a clear and easy to read water level indicator on the side of the kettle. It's particularly useful for consistently filling the kettle with the minimum amount of water you require, therefore allowing for efficient boiling.

Flip Top Lid

Above the temperature setting controls is a large push button. This button opens the hinged lid to allow for quick and easy filling. It's a convenient feature as you can fill the kettle with only one hand, freeing the other hand for turning the tap on and off.

Recommendation

Overall, the Vonshef Variable Temperature Control kettle serves its purpose. It offers a wide range of in-built temperature settings, from 50C to 100C, allowing for more control over tea and coffee brewing. It also boasts a modern design and will fit in well with most kitchens. We particularly like the five illuminating colours that indicate which temperature setting has been selected. Overall, we rate this kettle 4 out of 5 stars.
