Russell Hobbs’ in-house design team has created a futuristic range of glass kitchen appliances. The three product range consists of a cordless glass kettle, a glass toaster and a glass panini press, finished in a combination of steel and wood. The 1.7l kettle has a stainless steel body with an etched glass lid and base – that allows users to put the kettle down at any angle, so it suits both left- and right-handed users. The two-slice toaster features an extra-long toasting tray and centering guides. Its browning level is marked by a neon indicator. The panini press uses a flat cooking element and floating hinge to accommodate a variety of sandwich sizes. Retail prices for the products range from £40 to £60.
