I got this 20 litre version to replace a 23 litre version so it is decidedly smaller but I have no problems with anything fitting inside. In fact I like it better than the larger model because it doesn't dominate the kitchen like the old one did. The waveguard cover is plastic ( card on the old one ) which makes it easy to clean.There is a slight disadvantage to this black model because the inside is dark to check if it needs cleaning but this is minor.Controls are pretty standard and straightforward (though I don't like the trend to flush fitting buttons which don't feel as secure as they used to ) and it is a pleasure to use.

Black Microwave, Shiny mirrored front, generally OK
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

It's a microwave. It's black, 800watt power, look ok.My main gripe is the front isn't the easiest to clean, it's definitely like a mirror surface, not black like in some of the pictures (that would just be a black reflection in it).It's pretty basic but does the job and look OK. I wouldn't pay more than the £59.99 I paid for it.

Glass plate very loose
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Just arrived and first out of the box (literally) the microwave was quite damp on the outside/exterior,so i'll leave it over night before use.....safety first.The glass plate is very wobbly sitting on that turn thingy which will slide off for sure and will annoy me as well as anyone.Inside this new microwave it's a 20L (of course) and measures 28cms wide x 17.5cms high x 26cms deep.My older microwave is a 17L and measures 29.5cms wide x 18cms high x 25cms deep.When putting a plate inside this my large/wide plate just fits inside.So for the sake of a bigger microwave of 3 litres the width shrunk by 1.5cms which is a big deal...what's that about? I gave it 3/5 stars for these reasons.

Poor Quality

18 months old and all the paint on the inside has come off. This has been looked after as well.

Small but works well
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Bought this microwave around a month ago, it was smaller that I expected (it can be hard to work out the size using volume) but everything I've wanted to get there has fitted perfectly.Using the microwave is fine, but its UX isn't going to blow anyone away. I wouldn't bother with the programs, they're not much use, and the power indicator isn't intuitive, most instructions for products you're going to microwave specify watts, but this uses a percentage of the full power.The start button doubling as a "set a 30 second timer and start" is useful and it how I end up using this most of the time as it's a great 1 touch function. Once started the start button also adds 30 seconds to the timer, so the majority of the time, I'll just set the time and start with multiple presses of the start button. I previously had a much larger, non-turntable microwave, but this works just fine and cooks food more evenly. I mostly use the Microwave for defrosting meals that I've cooked and frozen and it does that without any issues.Overall the microwave looks great but the glass door seems to pick up (and highlight) fingerprints quickly.It's a microwave that serves its purpose just fine, nothing more nothing less.

Kettle looked very nice but the water tasted foul. A very plastic type taste even after boiling it ten times so I returned it to the shop.

Returned it
Reviewed on Argos.co.uk

Takes ages to boil and is so big and chunky. The water meter on the side can only be filled half way until it’s full so a lot of extra space for no reason. Noise when boiling very loud.

An excellent kettle, weighty but this makes it, for me, very stable. Love the blue lights when on and coming to boil, also love the button to open the lid.

Microwave 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 5 microwave power levels to choose from, you can ensure all your food is cooked or re-heated to the perfect 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 RHM2076's 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.

Hints and tips

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.
