Townhouse collection is a new kettle and toaster range from Swan. Both appliances in the range come in three different colour options, metallic red, traditional cream and sleek black. The kettles are cordless and are pyramid shaped; a design which fits with both a contemporary and a traditional style kitchen
The item required little effort to set it up ready for use for the first time. Once the outer and inner packaging is removed from the kettle and its base, it is more or less ready to go.
Remove the lid and fill with water into the top of the kettle (as the mechanics of filling directly into the spout did not work that efficiently). Fill with a capacity of water that sits somewhere between the MIN and MAX lines. Make sure the lid is back on again tightly and securely, place the kettle on its base, connect the plug to the mains supply; press the power switch down; allow to boil (the kettle switches itself off), then the discard this water from the first boiling.
Testing the efficiency of heating water to boiling point, we filled, with the same volume of water, this new Swan appliance (figure 2 below) plus another kettle (from a different manufacturer – figure 1 below). We turned on the switches in unison. Once electricity was flowing the older kettle was quieter in its operation than the Swan version, the Swan kettle however, reached boiling point a whole 15 seconds sooner than the older kettle. Admittedly, in the case of the latter, some scaling could have slowed the process slightly, but, still, fast boiling means a faster cuppa for the thirsty. Liking this new kettle by Swan, aesthetically it is very pleasing.
