The best kettle ❤️
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

 Looks lovely. The button is so smooth to switch on and off. The blue light is a nice touch. Love the cup measurements on kettle.Noise is a bit loud but eh, not an issue for me. The handle is quite thick so might be a little hard to hold for people with weak grip or arthritis etc.I’d recommend filling the kettle up, boiling the water and then rinsing it out for the first time clean. The first few uses from the kettle did give my brews a weird taste but literally after a day of use, the taste has gone and the brews taste immaculate x.

Do Not Buy makes water taste like antiseptic
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Bought this kettle because of all the good reviews, however after it arrived and we boiled the water it tasted funny, like antiseptic, we boiled It numerous times with fresh water and every time the same.. it’s like the plastic lining of the kettle is tainting the taste of the water, you can smell it when you tip the water out. We are having to return it and purchase a different one.. Do Not Buy as it makes the water taste like antiseptic.

Stylish black kettle looks good
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Really love this kettle. Bought to replace an older one by Delongi. It matches my microwave. Looks stylish with the blue light seems sturdy and really like the button to pop the lid up to fill so easy. My kettles usually last about 3 years so we shall see but really impressed with it so far. Not too noisy and easy to clean.

Bad buy!!
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Did not last more than 2 monthsThere was a leak that caused it to trip my mains every time I put it on therefore stopped using it. No response yet from Russell Hobbs as usual even if it says 2 years warranty. Looks like a faulty product sold at cut price.Is amazon equally responsible for bad customer services as it’s sold through you?If so I need some sought of response to compensate for this!!This would be my first ever bad review for a product bought from amazon as it’s unaceeptable.Thanks, but won’t be buying more of Russell Hobbs.

Mass Produced OK if it works
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

The first one lasted less than 3 weeks before the heating element failed.Also it took several cleansing boils to remove the plastic taste. The replacement arrived within 2 days of my defect report and only took a couple of boils to remove the taste.As long as this one lasts I will be happy with it.On line warranty says 2 years.

Nice looking but......
Reviewed on Argos.co.uk

I was surprised how heavy the kettle is even when its empty. It boils Ok and it glows blue all the time when its switched on. Has almost a 2 pint capacity and does what its designed to do.

It is practical and functional. Ok for price. Takes about 10 boils to get rid of the taste of plastic in your hot drink.

Quite a nice looking kettle
Reviewed on Argos.co.uk

I've had my kettle 10 days now and I am still having to empty it of water that has already been boiled. There continues to be a nasty, chemical taste unless I boil with fresh water every time.

absolutely love the look of this kettle, looks fab in my kitchen. I purchased one around a month ago, but the water had a metallic taste for weeks. I took it back to the store yesterday and they exchanged it for me. I have boiled the new kettle a few times and the water is tasting spot on. Would definitely recommend, 5 ⭐️

Purchased to replace a much cheaper kettle that proved to be faulty. Whilst more expensive, you get what you pay for. This is Stylish, fast and much quieter that the cheap versions. Large wide spout, wide opening lid is easy to fill. Highly recommended.

Great kettle
Reviewed on Argos.co.uk

We have a small office and the kettle is on at least once an hour and is handling it very well. It is great. Easy pour, comfortable handle and doesn't take too long to boil either.

Do not buy this kettle
Reviewed on Argos.co.uk

The manufacturer must coat the inside of this kettle with some kind of preservative because it gives the water a horrible taste. I must have boiled the thing at least a dozen times and it still tasted foul. Took it back in the end and bought a cookworks one and had no problem with it.
