We’ve taken a look at retro kettles and modern kettles here at Kitchenables this month, but we’ve never seen a kettle as vibrant and funky looking as the Kenwood kMix Boutique! Let’s take a quick look and see what it’s got to offer.
As you can see, the kMix Boutique is a breath of fresh air. It’s bright colour and round shape makes it a nice friendly addition to any kitchen. It’s available in a host of colours. As well as the yellow colour above, there are blue, magenta, green and orange models available too.
Underneath those vibrant colours, there’s nothing too amazing to note; this is a pretty standard kettle. It holds 1.6 litres of water, which you’ll get a good 6 cups of tea from.
Inside there’s a removable filter for keeping limescale out of your cup. However, the concealed element reduces limescale build up in the first place.
The power switch is illuminated to show when the power is on, and there’s a rear water window for seeing how much water is in the jug.
We found that most kettles were cheapest at Amazon.co.uk, including the Kenwood kMix Boutique which is currently available for 10% off.

Customer Reviews and Feedback
The kMix kettle is fairly new, and as such we weren’t able to collect that many customer comments. Of those that we did collect, most were positive. 78% of customers would recommend this kettle to others.
There’s nothing particularly exceptional to report about the Boutique. It boils water quickly and efficiently, it’s not too noisy, and people liked the fact that it was simple. If you want a straightforward kettle with no gimmicks, this could well be the kettle for you.
As we’ve already pointed out, the kMix is available in a really unique and vibrant set of colours, and customers loved this too.
There weren’t many negative comments that we could see. A couple of customers experienced a faulty lid, however the problem certainly didn’t seem widespread (it was only reported by a couple of buyers).
It’s a simple kettle that boils water quickly, and happens to look really vibrant and up-to-date. If you fancy adding a bit of flair to your kitchen go right ahead; the Kenwood kMix Boutique kettle is a breath of fresh air!
