Sunbeam Designer Series Glass Kettle

I’m a bit jealous of you Aussies because you guys get this beautiful Sunbeam kettle designed to look like a carafe. Designer David Knott wanted something high-end and functional but to do so meant developing an electronic temperature sensing control to avoid the need for a steam tube up into the handle like most electric kettles. The result is a completely transparent design; modern and sculptural. The handle is chrome plated and the glass body is manufactured by Schott Duran.

    great design I will try to pick one up myself even though I’m in the states (go internet!). Question though..eventually wouldn’t water leave calcification stains on the glass?

    I dont say this all that often but this is lovely. Nice work. I would buy one of these in a heart beat.

  • David says:

    Hi everyone.
    Thank you for all of your positive comments and a big thank you to Yanko Design for posting my work.

  • Yelena says:

    I am in the United States. Will this Kettle ever be sold in the US? Meaning the voltage difference?

    • David says:

      I don’t know Yelena. The design will need to be licensed to a US company for production in 120V. I certainly hope it will but unfortunately it is out of my hands…

      • Ben says:

        It’s a lovely design – makes me wish I was still living down under but I’m sure I can get a mate to mail me one here in Europe.
        One question though – if this is glass them wouldn’t it get very hot to the touch and possible your knuckles might get burnt if they strayed from the handle too much?

    Hi David,

    I have a similar question to Ben about burns… I really really love this Kettle and want to buy it so if you could respond very soon that would be awesome.

    My question is: Does the handle get hot considering it is metal (stainless steel) and the close proximity to the glass?


  • Belinda says:

    yikes just read a review that says the lid pops off when pouring and the handle gets hot if you leave it for a bit.. This looks awesome but not for me.

  • Brentster says:

    I live in NZ and have had one of these for about a year and it is great!

  • Brentster says:

    The handle will get warm if you boil say two or three jug loads, but not hot enough to be of concern
