Another reviewer (I guess he works for Russel & Hobbs) claimed that a full kettle boiled in 1 min 30 secs, one of the reasons I brought one, I can tell you that statement is complete rubbish, it takes exactly 5 mins, I feel I have been conned, so a little disappointed, but it does do the job without knocking your electrics out, just takes a little longer.

Great for travel in Europe
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

I bought this kettle for a trip to Mexico and was disappointed that it isn't dual voltage. It's basically just a small kettle. Having said that, i prefer this to the standard travel kettle as this one boils enough water for two large mugs. Great little kettle for travelling closer to home and further afield if you are happy waiting a little longer for it to boil!

Mini kettle very happy with us
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Very pleased with it. Don't forget it is a kettle with cord attached. Working well in room with person in quarantine. Perfect size so as not to get in the way, and what you need from a mini kettle

Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

I live in an en-suite room accommodation and this very helpful for me.Pros:Small size.Light weight.Enough water for around 2 cups.Doesn't take too much time to boil.Shuts off automatically when water is boiled.Cons:I didn't like the fact that the cord is fixed to the kettle and is not detachable.

Good but needs unplugging for refilling.
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Very good, suitable for bedroom.. BUT, the kettle does not detach from the plug so needs to be unplugged to be filled which isn't great for a bedroom. I've got round this by having a large water jug next to it. But if people want a bedroom kettle I'd suggest one where the kettle detached from the base and the power goes to the base. Apart from that very good and lightweight.

No base and wire crazy short
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Rubbish. It has no base, ie you can't detach the kettle to fill it so you have to unplug it and take the wire and plug to the sink. And the wire is SO short it doesn't even reach the plug from a bedside table so it needs an extension cord. Not exactly convenient. Don't buy this.

Great for Uni Bedroom
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

I love this little thing. I got it to go in my room in my uni halls, since I have mobility issues and the kitchen is a floor below me, so I needed something I could use to make tea and instant soups and the like (I have a sink in my room so getting water is no issue). My only gripe is that it could do with a longer chord, though it isn't really that much of a problem.

Lead too short to use on a table.
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Bought this to go on a low table but the lead is far too short. I have to now use a clumsy extension lead. Only good if you have high power sockets. Nice touch with 2 cups.

A great little kettle.
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

A great little lightweight kettle at a great price. Ideal to take abroad on holiday. It takes a little longer longer to boil but the pros outweigh the cons.

Great for travelers. I stayed in a hotel that does not provide tea sets. So I got this and it served us well. It has 2 cups inside so you don’t need to purchase additional cups. More like buy 2 items for the price of one.

I brought it to use when travelling, and it does the job. Only 0.5kg, does make too much noise and you have hot water for 2 cups.
