Steamy affairs

WORDS Malibongwe Tyilo

With so many shiny, hi-tech kettles around, you’ll be forgiven for thinking the stovetop kettle is dead and gone, a relic from a bygone era. Not so fast… The VISI team is loving the retro-inspired shapes popping up all over the place.

And we’re not just drawn by the novelty factor. The kettles we’re on about range from authentic-looking designs to sleek, modern interpretations. So whether you’re yearning for that old, familiar whistling sound, or you just need a burst of colour to brighten up the heart of your home, may we recommend some of our favourites?
