FIRST-LOOK REVIEW: RidgeMonkey Square Kettle

It's a kettle and it's square - meet RidgeMonkey's latest twist on the mundane...

First there was RidgeMonkey's square stoves, now the straight lines have been brought to kettle world.

The RidgeMonkey Square Kettle, which is available in two sizes, is designed with two things in mind.

Firstly, it offers a more efficient design in terms of storage - when the cuboid design is stuffed inside a bag it makes much better use of the space than a round kettle. 

 The small version holds 500ml of water (or baked beans if you've forgotten your pan again)

Secondly, RidgeMonkey says the Square Kettle is, like for like, more efficient in terms of fuel usage than a traditional stove-top kettle. There's also the fact it looks smart and fits perfectly on the Quad Connect stoves the company brought out earlier this year. 

The small version can hold 500ml of water and the the larger model can handle 1.1l. Both are made from anodised aluminium and both have fold-flat dual handles, which is definitely a neat touch.

As RidgeMonkey's own promo video makes clear, there is not an awful lot else to say. However, for those who appreciate the look of things then these will find plenty of admirers.

We've already nicknamed them the Squettle in our office and look forward to giving them a proper test. 

 Dual fold-flat handles are a nice touch
