Product Description

Product Description

Russell Hobbs knows that there is nothing better than enjoying the optimal cup of tea in the comfort of your own home. You can now get cleaner, clearer and great tasting water which means better tasting teas and coffees thanks to the Purity Kettle by Russell Hobbs and Brita.

Cleaner, clearer filtered water makes hot drinks smell, taste and even look better. The Brita water filter reduces impurities such as chlorine, lead and copper, preventing scale deposits for a longer product lifetime. A built-in indicator reminds the consumer when its time to change the filter cartridge.

The Brita Kettle features a power 3kw rapid boil, 1 litre boil capacity, 0.5litre hopper capacity, blue illumination when switched on, a cartridge replacement reminder and it also comes with a free Brita Maxtra filter.

Please Note

The user should check there is sufficient water filtered through before switching it on to boil. If used with insufficient water the boil dry cut-out will switch the kettle off, see Instruction booklet notes 41 and 42 on Page 5.

    The water boiled from this kettle does indeed make a clear clean tasting cup of tea. It's also rather nifty that it's translucent, so you can see the water level - and has a pretty blue light which glows when you switch the thing on.

    Downsides however are:

    The maximum capacity of the kettle is about 4 cups (or 4 scant mugs),- so if you want to make a large cafetiere of coffee, you have to boil the kettle twice. You can only fill the kettle halfway: there are warnings to indicate that if you fill above this level, the kettle will spit and may stop functioning - so the siza of the thing is huge compared to how much water you can boil.

    This is the main disadvantage from my point of view, because about 75% of the time that I use a kettle, I want to boil more than 4 cups. For a person who wants to make single cups of tea or coffee or cuppa soup or whatever, this may not be as much of a problem.

    You also have to remember to replace the filter every 4 weeks. Which is a bit of a faff, with the filter preparation (rinsing and so on). Unless you are one of those organised people who remembers to do that kind of thing, the kettle will soon cease to perform its intended purpose, after which you just have a rather large kettle that boils a fairly small quantity of water.

    So, great tea, but a bit of faff and not completely practical.

    This is far and away a better kettle than the far more expensive Breville version. We had the Breville version, which within a couple of weeks had a broken lid and lid opener and was leaking constantly in various places- obviously we changed it for a new one but due to how badly it was built- exactly the same happened! I then found out that my Brother had exactly the same problem with his two Breville's! The Breville's were nearly £70. This Russell Hobbs has now been in use for months and looks as good as new, with no leaks and no breaks anywhere- it is far better build quality than the Breville- there is no camparison, the Russell Hobbs is so much better.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    This product has a base attached to the electricity cord. The kettle is cordless, but it is different to your standard kettle because this one is basically two separate appliances (filter jug and kettle) in one so it saves space, which is good for a small kitchen if you want to have both of these.

    The look is nice, stainless steel and see-through plastic. And when it is boiling the blue LED light lights it up to give it a very modern feel and is a nice feature.

    Basically you pour the water into the filter and plug it straight away. Not long after you have very clear boiling water which gives a pure taste to your hot drinks.

    But it can also be used for cold drinks too.

    Down side is that capacity of boiled water is reduced and that you have to replace the filter every once in a while, which an indicator will notify you when to do.

    Russell Hobbs is a reliable brand in small domestic appliances so you know what to expect beforehand.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    The Russell Hobbs purity Kettle with Brita Filter cartridge included is fast quiet economical. The filter has to be soaked in water before putting into the kettle and has a life time of 1 month which is measured by an indicator which is set at the time of inputing the cartridge.It looks cool when it is in use as a blue light illuminates.The base has a 360 degree rotation which is handy if one person is left handed and the other is right allowing the handle to be positioned to the person using it.The capacity of 1 litre for a family is pushing it, however the hopper contains a further 0.5 litres.
    If you like large mugs of coffee or tea then the 1 litre capacity tends to be not enough, but may be thats just us. For standard drinks for average cups then this size would be fine.
    In our old kettle it was noisy, and if you put your drink up to the light you could always see something floating on top of the drink, but not with the Brita.
    It also comes with a Guarantee of 2 years.
    You can also use the kettle to filter cold water if and when required, price is good too.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    This is a physically large kettle designed to provide the benefits of filtered water for all your boiled water requirements. When you receive the kettle you need to prepare the filter by rinsing it, then run two lots of water through the filter before filling the kettle ready for use. Here we hit the first issue. The kettle has two cavities, one you fill from the tap, the other to hold the filtered water. Fill the top cavity and there is not enough water to fill the bottom cavity. Fill it fully twice and there is too much so you have to pour some out. It takes a bit of practice to get it right.

    Then start boiling the kettle. It boiled it's maximum capacity in 2 minutes 35s, which sounds quick until you realise it can only hold about 1 litre or 3.5 mugs full. If you have 3 or more guests you will need to boil it twice and remember a full refill requires you to stand at the sink waiting for the water to filter through before adding a second fill of water. This takes at least a minute.

    But there is one unique positive, a very clear clean tasting cup of tea with no scum, that no conventional kettle can match.

    If you want the perfect cuppa this is a solution with some flaws, if you want a proper general purpose kettle steer clear.
