The average kettle’s energy output is 2 to 3 kilowatts (kw), the highest out of any small kitchen appliance. Kilowatt hours (kWh) is how households are charged, so the higher the kw, the higher the cost. ZWILLING’s ENFINIGY Glass Kettle outputs 1.5 kw, while its Electric and Electric Pro Kettles output 1.8 kw. These numbers are all lower than the average, helping to preserve energy and save money. What’s more, ZWILLING’s Glass Kettle in Black or White features helpful cup markers to ensure the exact amount of required water is boiled, as well as easy temperature selection, a pre-boil function and keep warm function. Buying an ECO kettle that only boils the amount of water required can use 20% less energy than a conventional electric kettle, and by avoiding overfilling, £13 a year can be saved on a household’s electricity bill*. In addition, tea lovers will enjoy using the stainless-steel tea insert for brewing loose leaf teas for the ultimate freshness and authentic flavour.
ZWILLING’s Pro design features seven pre-set programmes (including one for baby food) along with a stylish sensor touch display. This allows users to preselect the ideal temperature for their drink of choice so that unnecessary boiling time doesn’t occur, while the stay-warm function keeps it hot for up to 30 minutes. Added benefits include a helpful litre marker, heat insulated double-walled body that keeps water hot while the exterior of the kettle remains cool to the touch along with a built-in limescale filter and a snug-fit seal to reduce spillage.
For those who prefer a cup of coffee, ZWILLING’s award-winning 12-cup coffee maker offers plenty of features to create the perfect brew. The large 1.5 litre water tank allows for multiple cups to be prepared while a timer and keep warm functions allow users to choose when to make their coffee and keep it warm for up to 30 minutes afterwards, saving on the energy it would take to re-brew. As well as ensuring the ideal time and temperature setting for high quality results, it also has a corrosion-resistant stainless-steel broiler that won’t alter the taste of brew water and a blooming function that develops a smoother, less sour-flavoured coffee.
Perfectly complementing ZWILLING’s ENFINIGY Kettles and Drip Coffee Machine is its matching toasters (starting from £89.95 for a two slot or £149 for a four slot) and double walled Sorrento glassware (starting from £19.95 for a set of two) which keeps drinks warmer for longer.
