A sleek glass and metal design make this a versatile kettle design wise and we can see it sitting pretty in most modern kitchens. When not in use, the kettle emits a pleasant blue glow from the onboard LEDs. At the flick of a switch the kettle can be urged in to action and a red light marks the start of the boiling process. Stylish and elegant, Salter seem to have created something with great presence.
The 2200W kettle comes with a 1.7 litre capacity which is enough for around 8 standard cups. Boiling time is OK, although perhaps not the fastest kettle we have used.
Sat on a 360° swivel base, the kettle is ideal for both right-handed users and left-handed users. Additional features include an auto-shut off feature when the kettle is accidentally put on when dry and Strix control.
If you live in a hard water area then be prepared to descale every 3-4 weeks, as the build up of limescale does become visible over time. Within the kettle there is a limescale filter, so that you can rest assured you will never get any in your morning cup of tea.
