Interior design trends are always evolving, influenced by changes in art, culture and the wider world around us. In recent years, the retro revolution has truly taken hold, transforming modern monochromatic homes into nostalgic capsules of a time gone by. Alongside mid-century sideboards and clashing colour palettes, the stovetop whistling kettle is reborn: a timeless classic and must-have for your kitchen space.

If you’re thinking about investing in a traditional stovetop kettle to elevate your tea and coffee making experience, you’ve come to the right place. This guide will shed some light on the top 4 reasons to buy one for your home.

Not Reliant on Electricity

Alongside a comfortable sofa and a reliable refrigerator, having a kettle you can count on is probably at the top of every homemaker’s priority list. However, with load shedding and subsequent power outages becoming increasingly common in South Africa, it’s not always easy to pour a cosy brew whenever you fancy one.

Investing in a stovetop whistling kettle is the perfect solution. Since they’re not reliant on electricity to function, a classic whistling kettle can still boil as much water as you need without any plug-in power. All you’ll need is a gas cooker or hob and you’re good to boil. Even when it’s pitch-black outside, when you hear that familiar whistle, you’ll know your steaming cup is just seconds away.

Built to Stand the Test of Time

As well as honouring the simpler way of life our ancestors enjoyed, a contemporary stovetop tea kettle also has some additional benefits to offer. For starters, whistling kettles from reputable brands are built to stand the test of time and offer unrivalled durability, often because they don’t contain any electrical components. If you’re eager to make your home a more sustainable place and invest in accessories that last, a stovetop whistling kettle is certainly an option worth considering.

Boil More Water with Every Whistle

A large capacity stovetop kettle is a complete necessity if you find you’re often the designated brew-maker. Whether you’re making coffee for 10, hosting a monumental tea party or need plenty of water to spare, a traditional whistling kettle is a great option.

For those who treat tea and coffee making like a fine art, a classic whistling kettle also offers some additional benefits. Thanks to their insulative design and ability to remain on simmer, the contents can be kept warm for hours on end. For coffee connoisseurs and tea enthusiasts alike, this can cut out the waiting time before sipping the perfect brew.

Complement Your Interior

When it comes to perfecting the ultimate nostalgic interior, there’s no brand quite like Smeg to turn your ambitions into a reality. Our brand new stovetop whistling kettle is designed to achieve just that, inspired by the iconic retro styling of our world-famous refrigerators or small appliances.
