FEELIN' HOT HOT HOT
I've lost count of the amount of times I boil the kettle to make a cup of tea and then
walk away and forget about it. No more. In 60 seconds I can enjoy my favourite
hot beverage by simply placing my cup under Kambrook's Hot Cup Rapid Boil.
The appliance is energy e cient by only using enough energy to boil one
cup at a time. It's speedy and easy and has a six-cup
capacity for when you have guests over.
The spout dispenses 250ml of
freshly boiled water and the
removable drip tray catches
any spills. Available in a white
or black finish, the Kambrook
Hot Cup Rapid Boil is $99.95.

TWICE AS NICE
These divine artworks can be hung on the wall and worn. Ok, not the framed picture but
the stunning pieces of jewellery featured behind the glass. The Linneys 2010 collection

The rings, brooches, pendants and earrings are set within worlds that are created with
beautiful diamonds, pearls, gold and silver. Adding to the collection Linneys collaborated
with Western Australian fashion illustrator Pippa McManus to create exclusive art works.
