Chantal Debuts First Electric Water Kettle
June 28, 2012,
CHICAGO-After 30 years of making stovetop teakettles, Chantal has entered the electric kettle market with the Ekettle. Offered in four finishes--chili red, indigo blue, brushed stainless steel and onyx--the Ekettle has a 52 ounce capacity and a suggested retail price of $79.99.
"Many of our customers requested that we create an electric kettle," said Heida Thurlow, founder and CEO of Chantal. "We knew that we would need a great-looking, top-quality item if we were going to enter the electric kettle market. We took our time designing the Ekettle to ensure it offers the beautiful Chantal style with the convenience of a plug."
