Students in Kenyan Universities and Colleges use this Kettle to Boil Water in their hostels



RAMTONS RM is the most popular kettle among students in Kenyan universities. The Kettle costs Ksh 1,200 to Ksh1, 400 and is a must have for students in our universities and colleges.

The kettle is most useful when you are in a hurry during morning classes. It will save you time as your work will be to fill it with water, fix it to the socket and wait for 3-5 minutes for the water to boil. Within 5 minutes you are done with breakfast and ready for classes.

This important kettle is also useful for people in employment, security guards and offices where preparing tea is not a norm .If you are a single man, who has little time to spare on lighting up a jiko,you will find this kettle useful.

Since the kettle has low fuel consumption history, it’s most preferred for boiling water for shower. If your bathroom does not have a hot shower, you will definitely have to purchase this kettle.

When I was in college,this is the kettle I used for four years.One thing I loved about it was the fact that I could leave it boiling water as I go to buy bread.On arrival,I found it had automatically turned off.I also liked the fact that it was from Ramtons,a company known for producing quality home appliances.
