Stove Top Kettles for the Retro Touch

The traditional, stove top, whistling kettle remains a popular choice for people who love the retro look.  There’s nothing more satisfying than the sound of the whistle from a traditional kettle to let you know that the perfect hot drink is only moments away!

Although the kettles in our stove top kettle comparison chart below are all traditional in function, their style is definitely not old fashioned.  With a mixture of elegant, retro designs with a modern twist, and choice of vibrant colours, there’s something to match every kitchen.
