Kettles were first discovered in Mesopotamia around 3500 B.C and were made from bronze. The first electric kettle was invented in 1891 by the Carpenter Electric Company in Chicago, where the heating element was in a separate compartment underneath the water. Over 120 years later, kettles have not only become an essential household item, but they are also manufactured to last.
Available in a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles, these appliances are an essential part of the kitchen. With many brands incorporating the latest technology into their appliances, kettles are more than just a water boiling accessory. With automatic shut off and long-lasting pre-set temperature settings just some of the features of the modern-day kettle.
Aside from the aesthetic look of a kettle, many opt to use this appliance as it boils water far quicker than a pot on a stove top. Just like a toaster, a quality kettle is a staple of the kitchen and with Harris Scarfe, you can enjoy hot beverages all the time with our range of kettles.
Bring it to the Boil
Gone are the days when a kettle would whistle as the water boiled and steam blew out of the spout. The modern kettle has boil-dry protection that automatically switches off the heating element when the water tank is empty. This helps to prevent the kettle from getting damaged and indicates the need for refilling.
