I am a self confessed kitchen appliance addict. There I said it…
So, you can imagine my excitement when I found out that two of my favourite companies are collaborating to bring us two fabulous and highly anticipated breakfast ranges. Russell Hobbs and Emma Bridgewater toasters and kettles are now available to grace the nation’s homes from exclusively selected retailers.
Established in 1952, and inventors of the world’s first automatic switch-off kettle, Russell Hobbs is one of the UK’s most recognisable and leading household brands. Emma Bridgewater, established in 1985, is a British design brand specialising in hand-made and hand-decorated pottery, based in Stoke-on-Trent. Both companies share brand-values for quality products made for the heart of the classic British home.
As of today, the Russell Hobbs and Emma Bridgewater ranges are available to buy in store and online from exclusively selected retail partners and feature the recognisable Polka Dot and Toast & Marmalade patterns. The striking designs feature on two flagship heritage Russell Hobbs designs including; 2 slice and 4 slice toasters, and 1.7L and 1.5L kettles.
The charming designs on the Russell Hobbs and Emma Bridgewater ranges add something special to any kitchen. The classic black and cream of the Toast & Marmalade design will take pride of place among any colour scheme, and the soft, multicoloured Polka Dots will inject some style into any kitchen.
Russell Hobbs Marketing Manager, Dominic Lewis, commented: “We wanted to work with a partner who shares our passion for quality, design and craftmanship to inject style and beauty into the nation’s kitchens, and we know people will be very excited about it!
“We’ve added the iconic and endearing Emma Bridgewater British style to the breakfast ranges to make every mug of tea and slice of toast more enjoyable. The collaboration marks the start of a new relationship with Emma Bridgewater, and a very exciting future for kitchen appliances to take pride of place in the heart of the home!”
Emma Bridgewater said, “We are thrilled to partner with Russell Hobbs, a company known for its quality and heritage, whose appliances are well-loved and hold an essential place in British kitchens. In making a lifetime’s worth of pots of tea, I’ve boiled water in an array of kettles, and it’s probably fair to say that the kettle I turn to most often is a trusted one made by Russell Hobbs. Of course, I do usually drink that tea out of an Emma Bridgewater mug.
“It has been immensely rewarding to translate our classic pottery pattern designs onto kettles and toasters with Polka Dot and Toast & Marmalade. I hope people enjoy their breakfast toast and tea from this cheerful breakfast range.”
The RRP for The Polka Dot and Toast & Marmalade kettles is £79.99 with the RRP for the 2 slice and 4 slice toasters at £69.99 and £79.99 respectively.
