Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect - Fast - Hot Water for our tea! My husband and I have always struggled in the mornings... he wanted coffee and I want my tea. I had always used his coffee pot to boil my water for my tea... It. made my tea taste bad, so I tried a steel kettle over the stove. That gave my tea a "metal" taste. Then I got this Russell Hobbs to try and I have never had such great tea! It was PURE water with no funky taste. The water boiled in half the time that it took on the stove. Also the cool blue light matched my kitchen accent lighting that is on all of our appliances. I recommend this to anyone who values a pure, great tasting tea. We got the glass 0ne though not the retro I just love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You won't be disappointed! I absolutely love this electric kettle and it's so easy to use. You fill the kettle up with as much water as you need then place it on the electric base. Push the button down that is below the handle to turn it on. A blue light will illuminate the kettle and it will go out when the water is done. It only takes about 4 minutes for a full pot to boil and it automatically shuts off when done. I don't have to worry about water bubbling out of the pot if i'm boiling water on the stove or the loud whistling noise that you get from other kettles. If you need hot water for anything I suggest checking out this Russell Hobbs electric kettle. I received this electric kettle for free in exchange for my honest review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Star Electric Kettle All I can say is WOW! This kettle heats water so much faster than a tea pot on the stove! It is also a very sturdy, solid, beautiful appliance that is fun to watch light up and then bubble. Am keeping this out on my counter. Excellent product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the classic look Russell Hobbs 1.7 liter electric kettle. I really like the classic look, with the black and stainless, and the analog thermometer. No LEDs, programming, or endless buttons. It reminds me of small appliances from the old days that would last forever. I'd be proud of the way it looks when having tea with guests. It's so handy having a thermometer to get to the perfect tea temperature rather than having to guess as with heating water in the microwave, and it doesn't produce a lot of waste heat as does using the stovetop. -A properly grounded, 3-prong 120 volt electrical outlet is required for operation of this electric kettle. Do not use on ungrounded 2-prong electrical outlets. -1.7 liters (about 1.8 quarts) is the maximum volume marked on the kettle, which fills the kettle around 3/4 full. This is just over seven 8oz coffee/tea cups. -To prevent scald burns, do not open (or leave open) the kettle lid while in operation. -Filling with 1.7 liters of cold tap water, I had bubbles appear on the bottom of the kettle in under 2 minutes. At 6 minutes it was boiling, and at 7 minutes 15 seconds, with a hard rolling boil, the auto shut-off turned the machine off. -Filling with one typical coffee cup of cold tap water, I had bubbles appear on the bottom of the kettle in under 30 seconds, and in about 1 minute 30 seconds, with a hard rolling boil, the auto shut-off turned the machine off. These single cup boil times were similar with refrigerator-cold filtered water. -As explained in the kettle's owner's booklet, you will note a few drops of water under the kettle after the boiling process. This is normal. The kettle captures a bit of steam to activate the auto shut-off, and the condensation of this steam is released below the kettle onto the top of the base plate. -The kettle can be turned off manually by triggering the power switch on the base plate, or by simply picking up the kettle from the base plate. -A full kettle of water stayed warm long after shutting off. I heated a full 1.7 liter (about 1.8 quarts) to full boil and auto shut-off, opened the lid of the kettle, and left it alone for about an hour. After on hour, I measured the temperature with a digital thermometer and found the water to still be 117 degrees. I did not re-heat the water to boiling again, but I think that re-heat would have happened quite quickly. -The booklet does not explain the heating process, but I'd guess the method of heating takes place by induction of a magnetic field in the bottom of the kettle, not in the base plate, which seems to only act as the electrical power source. Whichever, the heating process seems well insulated as the base plate and the bottom of the kettle did not become dangerously hot after the boiling process. -First-time operation consists of 2 cycles of boiling and discarding a full 1.7 liter kettle of water to clean and sanitize the kettle. Periodic de-scaling of water deposits is described in the owner's booklet. Plus it's big enough to get my hand in when I do want to wash it out. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase and would recommend it to a friend, or feel proud to give as a gift. It's obvious Russell Hobbs put a lot of effort into designing a good looking, quality product, that will last a long time.
