As premium home appliances lovers, we have heard of SMEG for a fairly long period of time. Its appliances in minimalistic style and retro aesthetics are just impressive.
Recently our kettle has just broken down and it’s the perfect timing for us to get a SEMG kettle and we also took this chance to get a toaster and drip coffee machine together. This product combo is just perfect for making breakfast and this incentivises us to get up earlier for a full set of breakfast in weekends (hopefully).
Let’s take a look at our unboxing article first.
SMEG早餐三寶開箱 Unboxing SEMG Appliances
Our 3 boxes of SMEG appliances arrived!
Let’s begin with this kettle. We selected SMEG’s kettle mainly because of its appearance.
Since our original kettle was broken down we did some window shopping on a new one. What we found was that it’s not really easy to find a good looking one out in any home appliance shop. The SMEG kettle is by far the best looking one we have come across.
Due to this unique positioning, its price is also in premium. However we found it worths the money as having this kettle is just like adding a nicely looking art piece at home.
Apart from its appearance there are also some features worth considering
First it’s the cap. Upon a press on it, it opens slowly and gently. According to the official description it helps get rid of massive steam coming out rapidly. Apart from safety we think this also adds a premium touch to this kettle.
Second it’s the filter in the water outlet. This spreads the water pressure and prevents water from suddenly flooding out at a certain angle
The filter can also be taken out for cleaning
nicely looking water level window and handle with premium touch
有人覺得水煲就係水煲，基本款，有發熱線煲到水就get its job done，不過我地就覺得如果佢同時係一件精緻既擺設，令屋企因為佢而靚左少少，成件事又變得物有所值
Some may think that as long as a kettle can boil water it’s already get its job done. But what about it’s also an exquisite piece of ornament? To us this kettle worths the money
Here it comes the toaster!
It’s also in 50s retro style with round silhouette and minimalistic colouring
There are clips in each slots to automatically centralise the toasts so they get heated evenly
Not only can you select the degree of browning, there are also the defrost mode and bagel mode (heating only one side of the bread)
Removable crumb tray for easy cleaning
Last but no least it’s the drip coffee machine.
Sleek design machine body. It also comes with a glass serving vessel and a measuring spoon
Open the cap it looks like this. The coffee filter and filter holder can be taken out for cleaning
Sideview. It can tell by the water level window that at most 10 cups of coffee can be made by this machine in one go.
As a coffee addict, we are interested in making coffee. Usually we like buying specialty beans back home to make pour-over coffee. We will write another article to share our experience with the SMEG drip coffee machine.

This has become the breakfast corner of our home.
But its value is more than merely preparing breakfast. These good looking appliances catch our our eye and they just made our home to look a bit nicer.
