Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite kitchen appliance! I didn’t know what to expect from this Electric kettle as I’ve never used one before. Just setting it out on my counter, I couldn’t help but admire how pretty it looked! It’s a gorgeous red with a retro look and it’s insanely easy to set it up. I filled it with water to the two cup section and turned it on. I couldn’t believe how quickly the water boiled & was ready! Normally I have to wait for what seems like forever for my tea kettle on the stove to whistle!!! I was able to have my very hot water in no time at all & start my tea time! I love the temperature gauge on the front, the handle stays cool to the touch, and this kettle looks darling on my counter! Highly recommend & I will definitely be using this nonstop for winter!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Retro Style Electric Kettle I like the way the kettle looks in my kitchen, although it is bulky, I like the nice, big handle, but it adds to the bulkiness. The small spout does not let the water drip, which is a nice feature. The temperature gauge is also a nice feature. Our old kettle has a hinged lid, which is preferable. The water level gauge is not in a good place, located behind the handle. We use this water kettle a lot, we make pour over style coffee and I make several cups of tea during the day. All in all, I like the electric kettle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Groovy Kettle I was asked me to review this kettle for free in exchange for a fair and honest review. This is the really cool looking kettle. Very well built with stainless steel. Every pour was drip free. No mess at all. Comes with a anti scale filter which is nice, and easy to clean. It heats the water really fast and I espcially like the temperature guage.Lets me know the different temps for my teas. Has a nice base that it sits one. This is a extremely well built kettle and, you not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and Easy to Use! I love this kettle! Russell Hobbs Retro style kettle has made me so happy! It saves me time boiling water on the stove, it's also much better than microwaving water. It has a 1.7L capacity, which is great when I want to make a bunch of hot coco or herbal tea for family & friends. It has a gauge on the side and a 1-3 cup marker on the inside for smaller needs. It heats up pretty quick, and I enjoy having the temperature gauge so I don't boil it hotter than I want it. I like the fact it has an auto shut of feature, even though I found myself turning it off sooner, as I didn't need my water steaming hot. The best thing of all, I feel like Russell Hobbs kettle is the full package, as it also looks great in my kitchen. It's one of the best additions I've added in a long time, and I hope, this kettle will continue to show off its style for years to come.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful, effective kettle Absolutely love the way this kettle looks on our counter. My husband is English, and this kettle reminds him of the one he used to have growing up. We drink quite a bit of Green Tea, so having the temperature indicator is very useful to us. The only negative is the use of plastic indicators and small bit of lining. Change the material of those bits, and the perfect kettle might just be in reach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'll Never Scorch Another Kettle I can't count the number of stove top kettles that I've boiled dry and ruined. Never will again because this electric kettle has an automatic shut-off that will prevent it.You can quickly boil any amount from a cup to 1.7 liters. We use it for beverages, grits, oatmeal and anytime we need boiling water for a recipe. I love the retro look sitting on my counter.
