When picking the best retro kettles, we’ve looked for the classic pyramid shape or the cute dome shape and colors we think have ‘retro’ written all over them including pastels, cream, and bright reds. Here’s a list of our top picks.
Russell Hobbs Retro Kettle
Russell Hobbs is one of our favorite brands for retro-style kitchen appliances. Their red legacy kettle has such a classic look that’s a perfect balance between retro and modern. The cream version is also great and it will boil your water super fast with 3000 W of power.

The Breville Impressions toaster and kettle duo is the most retro-looking thing you can own for your kitchen. We love the soda shop/ 1950’s ice-cream shop look with its bright red design and ridged texture.
Picking the Perfect Retro Kettle
Our top tip when purchasing a retro kettle is to consider functionality before design. Then, match your kitchen’s color scheme with the perfect kettle so you avoid introducing a discordant item in your kitchen.
Matching sets of toaster and kettles or 3 piece sets including a microwave is the best way to go. They will look so great together and are better value for your money, too!
