Famously the favoured kettle colour choice of Merlin, Judy Finnigan and 32% of sculptors*, blue kettles are once again right back in fashion. An aqua-coloured appliance for a hot aqua beverage. Picture it – it’s the nearest you can get to having water in its natural wild state. In that sense it’s no longer simply a kettle, it’s a nature reserve for H20. A nature reserve in which nature gets boiled.
