Smeg is an Italian appliance manufacturer that specializes in retro style pieces with modern convenience. They offer everything from toasters to ovens in a slew of adorable colors (like baby pink and chrome).
I am seriously obsessed with this kettle. Aside from being cute (which is really important to me), it is insanely fast. If you make as much tea as I do, this little detail makes a huge difference in my life. It has a soft open lid and a simple lever to turn it on and I seriously love everything about it.
