1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this kettle - it is rubbish 28 Feb 2011
By Cat

This kettle looks Ok but the switch turn it on is fragile. The main problem with it was that it started to leak from in-between the black base and the metal after two and a half weeks!

I have returned it and I'm waiting for a refund.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good design, better than illustrated 16 Dec 2010
By michal

Different design from illustration and even on box. No line down side, black ring round base is straight, not turned up as shown, so manufacturer's logo is centred on side. Only had this a week, was worried about steam from switch, but may have been from water evaporating on exterior.

5.0 out of 5 stars Russell Hobbs Kettle 18152 20 Jan 2011

Russell Hobbs Kettle-stainless steel. I am absolutely delighted with this kettle. It is smart and elegant, boils very quickly and easy to clean. One little annoying thing [which is not too important] it is quite hard to see the water level as one fills the kettle from the tap.....I have learned to 'hear' when the kettle sounds full! However, in spite.....I recommend this item without hesitation. Thankyou.

1.0 out of 5 stars Broke after just 9 months .... 9 Aug 2011
I bought this kettle in november 2010 and was pleased with it until the last few weeks when it started to leak all over my countertops whenever it's filled higher than for one cup. I expect a Russell Hobbs kettle to last longer than 9 months!

5.0 out of 5 stars It Boils Water! 2 Dec 2010
By Fred
This kettle works quickly if somewhat noisily. It is easy to fill and use. The image, however, is a little misleading - we nearly did not buy it as it looks as if it has a black stripe and we wanted a pure metal kettle. The black stripe is in fact a reflection in the metal of the body of the kettle so we were well chuffed when we opend the box!

3.0 out of 5 stars Russell Hobbs kettle 28 Jan 2011
Works OK, but has a cheap feel to the product. Didn't feel it would last long - for the price.

1.0 out of 5 stars Russell Hobbs kettle 18152 7 April 2011
Verified Purchase
Kettle arrived safely and looks lovely. However, has one serious safety fault - the lid has a habit of flying open as the contents reach boiling point and so the auto cut-off does not trigger and you may end up with a kitchen full of steam and burnt hands turning it off. Have tried ensuring that the lid is firmly closed before boiling but it still tends to happen.

Has anyone else noticed this,or do we have a "rogue" product.
