THE PERFECT CUP OF TEA
As avid tea drinkers know, the correct temperature is the key to the perfect cup of green, black or herbal tea. For the 42% of Australians that drink tea regularly, a kettle that allows tea to be brewed at the correct temperature is essential.
Like the other members of Smeg’s small appliance family, the Variable Temperature Kettle was also designed in Italy by leading Milanese studio deepdesign®.
Accuracy was a cornerstone of the design brief; this new kettle has seven preset temperatures: - 50˚C, 60˚C, 70˚C (green and white tea), 80˚C (oolong), 90˚C (chamomile), 95˚C (plunger coffee) and 100˚C (herbal and black tea).
Other features are its stainless steel body with 360˚ swivel base with non-slip feet and cord storage; a soft open lid; lime scale filter and 20-minute keep warm option. The kettle has a capacity of 1.7 litres (seven cups) and an acoustic alarm at end of cycle.
The Smeg Variable Temperature Kettle retains the same beautiful 50s retro-style lines as its family of award-winning stand mixer, toasters, blender, espresso coffee machine and hand blender and is available in eight colourways: chrome, red, pastel pink, pastel green, pastel blue, panna (cream), black and white.
