SMEG serves up style with new matte finish retro-style kettle and toaster

Iconic Italian appliance brand SMEG has moved away from its trademark pastel shades, to launch a trio of new matte finishes for its retro-style kettle and toaster.

Perennial favourites, the KLF03 kettle and TSF01 toaster are now available in matte white, black and champagne. We reckon the change in style is sure to widen the appeal of these kitchen classics.  

SMEG, a multiple Red Dot Design Award and iF Design Award winning brand, says it’s identified the growing popularity of the matte finish in recent years.

Certainly the all-new matte white and black kettle and toaster combo are ideal for kitchens with a minimal aesthetic, while the new champagne matte finish speaks of elegance and individuality.

The appeal of the matching KLF03 and TSF01, with their rounded lines, chrome detailing and stainless-steel accents, remains unchanged.

With a stainless-steel body, the kettle has a large capacity of 1.7L (equivalent to seven cups), and features a soft opening lid, 360-degree swivel base with non-slip feet, automatic shut-off at 100 degrees, a removable, washable stainless steel limescale filter  and concealed heating element to prevent limescale build-up. 

The sibling toaster, with deep drawn sheet steel, is a two-slice design with extra wide and deep 36mm slots perfect for thick-cut, artisan breads and bagels, six browning levels and three pre-set functions (defrost, reheat and a bagel setting). A distinctive illuminated dial and touch-release removable stainless-steel crumb tray, keep things practical.

The appliances with new matte colourways sell for £180.
