Ovente 1.7l Temperature Kettle (KS88S)ovente temperature kettle ks88s

Introduction

Cheap and cheerful. No frills but still with some bells and whistles.
This best describes the Ovente kettle.

It comes in the traditional kettle design, and the brushed stainless steel casing gives it a sturdy and clean look.
There are other color choices as well: red and brown (see image at the bottom of page).
Both options are shown on the product page and can be selected before ordering.

A nice visual gimmick is the changing lights which correspond to each of the five temperature settings.
For example, the green LED light indicates 140°f/60°C, red for boiling with other colors in between.

From all the reviewed kettles, this is the lightest (2.1lbs / 1kg).

Ovente offers a one year warranty provided you register online within 30 days after the purchase date.

How does it work?

The full kettle (1.7l) boils in about 7 minutes.
Once the temperature is reached it lets you know with a beep. In case the beep annoys you there is also a quiet version available (KS89S, see here).
The range of programmable temperatures is sufficient for all teas, coffee, baby food, etc.

When you turn on the kettle, the default setting is “Boiling”.  There is no extra temperature button for it which might be slightly confusing for some.
For any other temperature, you simply press the +/- button until you get to the desired setting.

The Ovente kettle has all the necessary features of a modern adjustable kettle and is BPA free.
For a list of all features see here.

    I already have quite a decent kettle in my kitchen which is a Breville Curve and I love it but I am looking for a kettle for my "Man-Cave" which is where I spend most of my time and certainly drink most of my tea so it makes sense to have a kettle there rather than make my cup of tea in the house then take it to my Man-Cave.

    I don't want to spend a load of money on a kettle just for there so to get something of this quality for the price it is I can't really go wrong can I

    I love the different colours that this kettle has and with my man-den being mostly red and purple I think a perfect choice would be the red Ovente 1.7I temperature kettle

    What do you think?

    Thanks for showing me this great kettle :)

      Hi Matthew,

      Thanks for the comment. Colours are very personal and if you like the red kettle, go for it.

    Yes, for the peanut price it is sold for, the ovente kettle might be the best option for me. I want to buy a new kettle but then I'm on a budget and this blends perfectly with my requirements especially the pricing aspect. Very cool to know about. This should be a very good option for me considering the fact that it is self regulated.

    Thanks a lot for your post. I had a kettle. Recently it has damaged. That's why I wanted to buy a kettle. But their price is a little more. In the meantime I saw your post. This Ovente 1.71 kettle is so beautiful and cheap in price. The activities of this kettle is wonderful which can boils in about 7 minutes and contains no extra temperature button that might be slightly confusing. I really like its structure. As soon as possible I want to buy it from Amazon.

    Can I get it in coffee colour?

      Thanks Zihad, Unfortunately, the kettle is not available in coffee colour. You can always paint it yourself.

      - Just joking. Don't paint it.
