Is there anything more mundane / wonderful than that first sip of strong tea in the morning? Doing it in style only makes it better. Every time I flick the switch of this beautifully minimalist, gleaming kettle, I feel happy. Really, I also feel underdressed – slicked back hair and cotton pyjamas do not an elegant morning make – but I haven’t quite reached the stage of dressing up for my kitchen appliances. Yet. OK, this kettle is quite pricey for what it actually is, but you can’t put a price on style (well you can. It’s £139. Get it here).
