To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Got this as a replacement kettle, cost effective for size and light up feature. Have had this now for many months, it is used daily for cups of tea and boiling water as required, and I have had no issues with it so far. The spout is easy to pour from so no drips, and the lid flips open/attached, so allows for quick and easy fill. Lovely item, sits on a swivel base so can point to left or right to fit in with your kitchen requirements. A lovely item, and I would personally buy it again. Large capacity.
Having read some bad reviews about this kettle I decided to give it a try due to its low price tag. I only have it a few weeks but have found it very satisfactory. It boils a lot faster than its predecessor ! Only bad point (in my humble opinion) is the colour is a lot less glossy than it appears in the photos. Having invested in kettles at double the price tag , only to find them slow boiling or chipped to pieces within months, I think this kettle is stylish and excellent value for money.
I bought this as a replacement for an old version of a similar RH one. It seems to have the same boiling time, which is fairly slow (full capacity). I was hoping it'd be quicker. Not a deal breaker though, it's a lovely looking kettle. Noise is average, not quiet but not really loud either. Don't expect luxury, it is plastic-y, the picture makes it look more sturdy. Pouring is nice and drip free. The blue light looks really good as well however I never understand a blue light when you're boiling water... surely it should be red?! Happy with my purchase overall and can't go wrong for £23!
Needed a new kettle and saw this one on line at a reduced price. The lid was easy to open and it had an easy to pour lip which was made of hard plastic . It also has a lining of hard plastic inside. Unfortunately when boiled the water tasted tainted even after boiling the full kettle over 12 times and cleaning with lemon and with bicarbonate of soda. I even used bottled water and that had the same taste. I would not recommend this kettle due to the above.
I know sometimes you get one which is bad in a batch. This is my second Russel hobs that has not lasted long ( the other one a more respectable 2 years). this one has lasted 10 months and the on off switch flashed and is now broken. I will try to get in touch with the company via Amazon so they might consider this is not long enough and replace it. If they do I will write on here a very positive review as I did like the kettle and it is stylish and seemed sturdy. Maybe just a one off fault.
I like that this is both a left handed and a right handed kettle, in thatI, as a left hander can easily see the fill line. It's nice and quiet in operation and the flip up lid operates smoothly. The only downside is the shape of the handle; it's a little thick neat the top making it a bit awkward to hold when it's full. At my age with a touch of arthritis in my fingers this may cause a problem.
