Russell Hobbs silver 'Windermere' 20430 jug kettle
Easy to use.
This kettle is attractive and easy to fill and is still light to hold even when full.
Best brand for kettles, shiny finish, easy to fill
I have had a number of brands of kettle, none has been as good as Russell Hobbs, and the price is quite reasonable.
The top flips open when you press a button with your thumb, making it very easy to fill under the tap one-handed. This is an important feature to me.
This model has a shiny finish, which is not as easy to keep clean as the brushed stainless kettles, I didn't notice when I ordered it.
quick boiling and nice looking...BUT..
boiled it a few times before use. Only had it a couple of days. Tasted of plastic, phoned up the help service told to boil with bicarbonate of soda, which I did, then boiled a few more times before using. For a couple of boils was ok, then started to taste again of plastic, phoned help services again and suggested taking it back, which I did. Plastic was inside so you can see the level for cups of water, so now looking for a good kettle without the plastic levels inside
Great product, good quality & excellent price I bought the 4 slice toaster also because in effect I got two for the price of one in the sale. Very happy as was bought for a gift.
Stylish, reasonably priced and great pour.
Very nice looking kettle with good pour which is what we were after.
Good for boiling small amounts of water
I often use my kettle for boiling enough water for a single cup of tea, therefore it's important to me that I can see the level of water for one cupful so that I don't boil more water than I need. The 2 features of this kettle which make it very easy to see the level are the red plastic markers inside the kettle showing 1, 2 or 3 cup levels and the clear window down the side of the kettle.
Another advantage is that it is hard to press down the 'on' switch by mistake, so avoiding switching on the kettle when it is empty.
The disadvantage is that it is much noisier than previous jug kettles I have had, but I rated it as excellent value because it was on sale for half price.
Ideal Home Kettle
Lovely clean look with excellent view of water quantity enabling you to only boil the amount needed. Very quiet to operate with an easy lid opening control.
Kettle is light to lift and boils quickly
Although the kettle is light to lift and fill and you can just use enough water for one cup, it is however, very noisy whilst boiling.
