You may not have the kettle icon, however you may have something similar, hover of the icons to see what they do!
Regarding the background, i afraid you will have to compisite it in after fx, which is why he rendered it PNG!
And ensure you have clicked the correct viewport before rendering, i.e. bottom right, (or wherever it is your working)

TUTORIAL NOTES:
Using a skylight is an easy solution to soft shadows but for faster rendering try using an array of point lights in a dome pattern above your scene with shadows on.
