Bought to replace previous Russell Hobbs "holiday" travel kettle (accidentally left behind on holiday last year),which had served us for years and years without any problems at all. Lightweight, compact but sturdy, efficient, and holds enough water to make two decent mugs of tea/coffee. We always take our own mugs as unless you like "continental" sized coffees the cups are too small - but are very useful nevertheless to deposit used teabags in. Or even as a sugar bowl if required. Spoon somewhat small but better than nothing! Boiling time perfectly acceptable, auto switch-off at boiling point so no worries about safety. Takes up very little room in suitcase, too. An excellent product at an excellent price - and if this kettle lasts even only half as long as our first one did (same make/similar model) we will be very well pleased. Recommended.

This kettle is compact and packs easily. It is really useful when travelling in Europe, where facilities to make a hot drink in your hotel room are generally nonexistant.

An excellent purchase. I bought it for my Mum who has arthritis and could not lift a large kettle easily. It boils rapidly and holds just the right amount for her teapot. It is light to use and fill.
The only downside is the attached cord. You have to take the whole thing to the tap, so there is a risk of wetting the plug by accident, but so far so good. It has not happened yet!

Bought this to use in the caravan rather than as a traditional travel kettle to pack in a suitcase. In the caravan it's just brilliant for the job and boils enough water for the two of us to have a cuppa or fill a flask to take out for the day! Doesn't take too long to boil either - unlike some of the smaller kettles. The higher wattage does mean that you run the risk of blowing a supply fuse on sites where the main electricity supply is only 6 Amps or below - so in those circumstances remember to do an 'Op Minimise' before you switch it on.

Having an auto-switch and boil-dry protection the kettle is great if you happen to take too long in the shower! Not sure what the point of the plastic cups is but I'm sure they didn't add much to the price and someone might have a use for them!

Many other 'travel' kettles are really only big enough to boil water for one cup at a time - a couple would need to boil water twice. However, this kettle is actually slightly too big to be popping into a suitcase for a fortnight in Spain - but then who really needs a cuppa over there!

This travel kettle is just the right size for those long-for cups of tea on Holiday in foriegn parts. The mugs are a decent size and you get 2 spoons as well. It boils quickly and has a limescale filter. Very good product, wouldn't go away without it.Russell Hobbs 14178 Travel Kettle with Boil Dry Protection

The Russell Hobbs 14178 Travel Kettle was ideal for our needs. It boiled quickly and the two cups supplied held more than enough water for a good sized cup of tea/coffee. Another advantage the cups did not get too hot to hold even with boiling water. I would certainly recommend the purchase of this kettle for anyone travelling abroad.

This is a great little kettle to take abroad. Lightweight,compact but big enough for 2 good size cups of tea/coffee. Cups provided are small but I take my own instead. It's not flashy but hey, it's only for boiling water.

I liked the convenient size and fast boil of this kettle but it only lasted one holiday of a week or so before failing. Now the light comes on but it doesn't boil the water. Really disappointed with the quality of this product. Maybe I was unlucky.
