Use the SMEG KLF03BLEU to easily boil 1.7 liters of water. This kettle's indicator displays both the number of liters and the number of cups. This means you can easily see whether you're boiling enough water for you and your guests. Press the button that's subtly incorporated in the top to open the lid. You can easily return the kettle to its 360-degree-rotatable stand. Clean the removable filter in the spout every now and then, to prevent limescale ending up in the boiled water.
