Offering a cup of tea is an essential ritual when a visitor comes to the door in many Irish households. However some electric kettles are so loud and noisy you feel like offering your guest a pair of earplugs rather than a biscuit.
The sleek and modern Buckingham Kettle RRP €49.99 from Russell Hobbs has a quiet boil feature that makes up to 75 per cent less noise than a standard kettle. With a 1.7 litre capacity jug, it’s big enough to make up to six cups and has a perfect pour spout to prevent boiled water spilling or splashing onto hands or work surfaces. It’s fast too, boiling one cup of water in just 45 seconds.
This kettle is perfect for early risers or night owls who don’t want to wake the family when they make a hot drink. With an illuminated blue ring that lights up when switched on and a stylish brushed steel finish, the Buckingham Kettle deserves pride of place in the heart of your kitchen.
Russell Hobbs products are available nationwide from independent Irish electrical retailers.
