Water tastes of plastic.
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

The kettle is good in every way EXCEPT I can taste plastic. I thought this was because it was new so persevered however, tea tastes terrible. I will be returning it.

Poor quality lid doesn’t match the good quality of the rest of the kettle
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Good quality and performance but let down badly by the poor quality of its lid. The spring is weak and the lid doesn’t close smoothly. On occasion, the lid springs open just as the kettle has reached boiling point

Dissapointed: Very noisy and not well built!
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Noisy from day one and we should have returned it then, but now only 5 months old and the switch has broken off with normal daily use!

Broke after 3 months of use
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Was a great little kettle, but sadly let down by poor on switch, which has broken off after 3 months or useLuckily, I bought it when it was on sale so it did not cost the full price and now seems hardly worth the bother of returning it

This kettle broke down after a couple of months, the flat knob you push down to boil the kettle came out of it's plastic holder which had cracked and broke. A complete waste of £50.I went for a known brand but Russell Hobbs let me down,shame.

Not fit for purpose! Foul tasting water.
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

I normally read reviews but in this case I didn't because it was a Which? Best Buy.I have experienced the same issue as many the other one star reviewers. It looks good, is fairly quiet and not particularly expensive but even after following all the the instructions i.e. boiling and throwing away the first few lots of water...... and many attempts after that, the tea or coffee is still undrinkable. I wrote to Russell Hobbs explaining the issue and their only suggestion was to return it for a refund which I have done. They gave no indication of why the water might taste so awful or anything I could do to stop this happening. It's odd that some people don't seem to experience this. If you buy this you are taking a risk and may have to return it or you may be one of the lucky ones.

Quiet kettle
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

The colour is a bit 'brash' for my taste, not a subtle red, but the kettle at the time of purchase was cheaper than the cream. It is much quieter than my previous kettle, like the fact the lid opens with the press of a button.

Not quiet boil!

Kettle looks great, but definitely not quiet boil by any means! Really disappointed with this feature as that was the main reason for purchasing it.

Not amazingly quiet!
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

We decided to buy this kettle as recommended and our old bulky kettle had died. It is slightly, but not much more quieter than our 'years old kettle' . It does smell sort of plasticky....I thought that would wear off after a few boils, but we have had it about a week now, so... However, the smell hasn't affected taste that we have noticed thus far! It's a tidy design that is a lot sleeker than our old kettle and it pours well. Would have given a higher rating had it lived up to the 'quiet kettle' promise and had it not been for the unpleasant smell. Also expected it to arrive on time given was ordered on Amazon Prime! That said, so far relatively happy with it.

Paint residue on the inside imparts oily taste.
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Love the design and color (gray). However the kettle imparted an oily flavor to the water which only faded after about a week and a lot of scouring out of the interior. The interior appears to have been contaminated with a gray residue that may have been from the exterior finish. A lot of cleaning later the residue appears to have gone.

Should be 5 Stars...
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

This should be a 5-Star kettle, it's a great design, looks really smart, seems well constructed, boils super quiet and super quick but the water it produces tastes rank.... We've used it for best part of a month in the hope it will improve but with the return deadline approaching it's now going back... We did think that maybe we were imagining it or that somehow our water supply had changed (our water isn't great, it's hard and often has a lot of chlorine in it), but we carried out a taste test with boiled water from a pan on the hob (old skool) - definately the kettle! On taking it out of service ready to pack up last night it looks like the coating on the element (that helps keep it quiet) is coming off (see pic) - we've been drinking that.... not particularly happy and somewhat concerned... Maybe our hard chlorine water attacks this coating, who knows (?) it's not fit for purpose in any case... I deliberated long and hard about this kettle, as so many seem to be critcally flawed so am very dissapointed... back to the drawing board it seems... wont be buying another Russel Hobbs either...

Definitely not quiet - I don’t know how RH can say this. It is louder than the 5 year old RH kettle I had previously! Everything else about it is fine...

In fact, not very quiet
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

I bought this kettle on my brother's recommendation, to replace an old Kenwood kettle that had started to leak. Like many of the reviewers on here he raved about how quiet it is so I figured it was worth the £40 cost - at least £10 more than most others on sale.First impression? MUCH noisier than our old Kenwood which was not a special 'quiet boil' kettle. It looks nice and appears to be well made, but quiet? Nope.
