Definitely NOT the Russell Hobbs quality we were used to!!

Tasha "Willspeakthetruth", Amazon
27 July 2014
  • Summary: I have not even owned this kettle a year now and it has stopped working! I am so disappointed! From day one, the top was very difficult to pull off, and the rim started to rust within a month of use. This past week it just stopped working!!!

inside has PLASTIC bottom

F. Camacho "mememe3", Amazon
17 July 2014
  • Summary: I was looking for an all stainless steel electric kettle, and unfortunately this was not at all what I expected. The bottom of the inside of the kettle is plastic that's painted like stainless steel, while the sides of the kettle are real stainless steel.

"Mr. Hobbs"...

Denise M. Peterson "Denise P.", Amazon
28 May 2014
  • Summary: That is what I call this wonderful electric kettle. It is fast and quiet and can be used to heat water for recipes and soaking a finger with a splinter or anything! Quiet too. I have bought them for friends and family...everyone loves them!

Love this hot pot

ILoveMovies3, Amazon
23 May 2014
  • Summary: This hot pot is amazing. I've owned one for the past few years and purchased one as a gift. I highly recommend it. It is consistent in its quick boiling, and cleans easy and well. And I like that it is plastic-free as far as the container (there are plastic parts on the handle and bottom).

A Great Kitchen Electric Teapot - Reliable and Sturdy

Beth Shafran-Mukai, Amazon
17 November 2013
  • Summary: Really like this electric teapot - so easy to use, water boils quickly, and great automatic shut off. One slight design issue - as you can see the top is narrow, so difficult to dry inside of pot after use (which would help in avoiding mineral build up).

Hot hot hot.

Dinakar Sarma "Dino", Amazon
6 November 2013
  • Summary: I've trusted Russel Hobbs tea kettles for years, and am happy to see them in the USA. The water gets rather hot rather quickly (a full pot takes about 4 minutes total). It's also very convenient to be able to lift the pot off the base, and replace it on as needed, so that you're not dragging a cord...

Rusting base, too long to shut off

Yuriy Yatsyk, Amazon
4 November 2013
  • Summary: Chose this kettle as it is possible to strip all plastic parts from the inside and have no plastic in the boiling water. From that perspective it's good. But, after a year: 1. Rust appeared inside, on the base of the kettle.

Finally a good kettle!

rvharvey, Amazon
28 June 2013
  • Summary: We have no coffee maker and use a kettle for filter coffee and tea. We went through three big-name brand electric water kettles in 6 years. When visiting Great Britain, it seemed that everyone used Russel Hobbs kettles and raved about them.

  • Summary: This heats up very fast, and is durable. I bought it because it was all metal. I have had it for 3 months and there are no problems.

my new favorite gadget

Bargainfairy, Amazon
27 May 2013
  • Summary: I did some research about these and learned that they use much less energy to heat water than an electric stove. I have learned also to pour only the exact amount of water for my usual one cup of tea. It heats to boiling in about a minute and automatically shuts off. No waste.
