Good kettle
Reviewed on Argos.co.uk

Have had two of this particular model kettle in black before, the last one being a couple of years ago. Needed a new kettle so decided to go back to this model again. While it is good, it is nowhere near as fast at boiling, as the previous models I have had in the past. Would not necessarily buy this model again in future.

Quiet, light, stylish and boils water

Really pleased. I'm very sensitive to the 'new plastic taste' from new kettles and this one tasted great in only a few boils. Does everything a kettle should so would recommend.

Boils fast
Reviewed on Argos.co.uk

I really like this kettle, it boils quickly, looks good and a great price. The only downside is the section that lights up is made of plastic. For me this brings down the overall look of the kettle but still a good buy.

It’s a black kettle it works & bright enough
Reviewed on Argos.co.uk

It’s boils quickly, a bit heavier than I expected when it was full but happy with it & would purchase again. A bit noisier than expected.

It's made of plastic (rather than a glossy metallic look in the picture), but other than that it's great.

Recipe Ideas for your Russell Hobbs Microwave

2 tbsp butter

1 tbsp cocoa powder

1 medium egg

3 tbsp caster sugar

2 tbsp self-raising flour

4 tbsp mini marshmallows

1 tbsp raisins

2 tbsp. broken rich tea biscuits


1. Add the butter to a large microwavable mug of at least 350ml. Microwave for 10-20 seconds to melt.

2. Add the cocoa powder and stir to combine. Next add the egg and sugar, beating with a fork.

3. Add the flour and beat again until smooth.

4. Stir in most of the marshmallows, raisins and biscuits and sit the remaining on top.

5. Cook on full power for 1 minute 40 seconds. Check that the mixture is cooked. If not, add time and check at 30 second intervals until it is completely cooked through.

Fuss-Free Poached Egg


1 medium egg

Pinch of salt

Recently boiled water


1. Using water from a recently boiled kettle, half fill a microwavable mug.

2. Add a pinch of salt and carefully crack the egg into the water.

Jacket Potato


1 medium baking potato

1 tbsp olive oil

Sea salt


1. Thoroughly wash and dry the potato.

2. Using a fork pierce the potato skin in 4 or 5 places.

250g asparagus

1 tsp butter

2 slices lemon

1 tbsp. chopped dill

Salt and pepper


1. Place the potatoes in a microwavable container with the butter. Season and cover with cling film. Cook on full power for 4-5 minutes or until cooked. Keep covered.

2. Meanwhile, place the salmon in a microwavable container with the lemon and dill. Season and cover with cling film. As soon as the potatoes are cooked, cook the salmon on full power for 3 minutes. If necessary, extend the cooking time by up to 2 minutes, checking at regular intervals until the salmon is cooked through.

3. Finally, wash and trim the asparagus, cover and cook for 2-3 minutes, then serve with the salmon and potatoes.

Hints and Tips

About your Russell Hobbs microwave

Microwave ovens do not generate any heat themselves but instead cause water molecules in food to vibrate. This vibration produces heat that cooks the food. This is why your food will come out of the microwave piping hot, when your utensils inside the microwave stay much cooler.

Microwaves cannot go through metal, so the inside of the appliance is lined with metal. The door is lined with a fine metal mesh which stops microwaves getting through.


Avoid using scouring pads, steel wool or other abrasives. Warm soapy water and a sponge should get rid of all moisture and food spillages.

How to get the best cooking results


With five microwave power levels to choose from, you can ensure all your food is cooked or re-heated to the optimum temperature.


This microwave has automatic defrost settings, all you have to do is input the weight of the food and the microwave selects the ideal defrost time.

Auto Cook Menus

The RHMM701 also features pre-programmed auto cook menus such as pizza, fish and popcorn, allowing you to cook all your favourite food at the push of a button.

Avoiding Mishaps

To avoid any microwave mishaps it is recommended to take extra care with the following:

Low moisture foods (eg. cereals, bagels, dried pasta, pulses and chocolate)

- These must be cooked on a low power level for a very short length of time, or preferably not at all.

High sugar content foods (eg. jams, syrups)

- These foods can become easily ‘super-heated’ when cooked in a microwave oven.

Foods containing alcohol

- Foods with an alcohol content must not be cooked in a microwave as they could ignite.

Foods with a membrane or outer skin (eg. fruits, sausages, potatoes)

- Food with a sealed or none porous skin must be pierced to allow pressure and steam to escape
