Chantal Debuts First Electric Water Kettle

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."

The Ekettle incorporates a number of features from Chantal's teakettle line, such as an ergonomic handle with stainless-steel accents and a durable stainless-steel spout and lid. The signature Chantal knob found on the lids of a variety of its best-selling stovetop kettle models is also used on the Ekettle. In addition, the Ekettle has a water-level window, an indicator light and a removable mesh filter.
