Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even Better than Prior Model We had an older Russell Hobbs (several decades old) that finally bit the dust. We loved how it worked and were amazed at how much better this model is compared with the prior model. I especially like the markers for 1, 2, and 3 cups inside the pot. Very convenient when you only want a single cup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Russell Hobbs Retro Kettle The kettle looks very 'classy' and fit in very with my kitchen. Performs very efficiently, and boils quickly and quietly. The size overall is not intrusive. Being from the UK., originally this brings back many memories, as we had many RH products at my home there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Stylish Kettle I received my white Retro Style Electric Kettle about six weeks ago. I absolutely love it! It looks perfect on the counter. Loving the thermostat that shows temp of the water, the heating element is in the base not the kettle itself and the retro style.
