    It's a rather expensive kettle, this. You can certainly buy a jug which you plug into the wall and which boils 1.7 litres of water for a much cheaper price than this. So, let there be no doubt about it, you are paying for its looks. So, do they justify the price?

    Yes, and no. While it's cooking up, it is wonderful to behold. Within seconds of switching it on, you can see currents in the water, and it gets more and more vigorous until it boils violently in a bath of lovely blue light. After the performance is over and the tea is made, though, the inside of the clear glass covers in condensation, which rather spoils the look. All the more reason to have an encore and another cup of tea, perhaps ...

    Back to more mundane details. The kettle boils quicker than my old kettle, but my old kettle was 10 years old so this could just be the progress of technology. It boils from its 2 cups level (they are generous cups, by the way) in under 90 seconds. It is also significantly noisier than my old kettle, which surprised me. But hey, it's only for a minute and a half!

    Another surprise - given how long this manufacturer has been making kettles - was that the spout pours only averagely well. In this respect, I've seen worse and I've seen better. It's not bad enough to miss the mug, but it's enough to make me think "why?!" every time I use it.

    I run my water through a filter before using it in the kettle. I have always done this, living in a hard water region. If I didn't, I'm sure this kettle would rapidly scale up and look awful. With the filter, it's been going a month and still looks pristine.

    The problem with these reviews is that most are written immediately after purchase, so when the product has a serious design flaw that only shows up after weeks or months, that isn't reflected in the comments. The design of the lid on this kettle is such that it is guaranteed to fail, probably between the first and second years. When it does, you will have to throw the kettle away because Russell Hobbs will not supply a spare lid, will not admit that thousands of customers have this problem and will place the burden on you of getting it fixed.

    My kettle lasted 14 months before the lid completely seized up. My advice is, avoid Russell Hobbs products - this company is contemptuous of its customers!

    This review and many more like it have been published here for almost a year. Yet, Russell Hobbs continue to market this kettle KNOWING that it has a number of serious flaws which virtually guarantee it wont last much beyond a year - if you're lucky. What does that tell you about Russell Hobbs? And why has Amazon not withdrawn it from sale?

    Don't let these companies rip you off!

    I bought this kettle to replace my last one that was all made from stainless steel. I think this is an amazing kettle for many reasons: Firstly, the walls are glass, which means that you can see the water and also the base, so you know when it's time to clean it. Also, the illuninating feature is really cool! I know, not a criterion for a kitchen item, but trust me it makes a difference! When I get in the kitchen first thing in the morning I turn the kettle on before turning on the light and the room glows. Not only does it work great and it boils water very fast, but it is very stylish and easy to use. There is a little button on top of the handle which opens the lid, a very useful feature, especially compared to my previous kettle that had a metal lid that was impossible to remove after a while due to limescale built-up. To close it you just press it lightly. Great buy!

    After less than 2 months usage the base unit has failed (kettle works perfectly).

    After calling Russell Hobbs (0845-658-9700)I discover that they do not carry any stock of base units to deal with this situation and at your own risk and COST the whole product has to be returned. The cost to Russell Hobbs of holding a small stock of base units would be minimal and excellent Customer Service would be to simply send a replacement.

    As a qualified engineer I found the attitude of the Customer Service function to be extremely negative and unhelpful and question why I the poor customer has to spend so much time and effort for a part that probably costs Russell Hobbs less than a £1.

    Buyer beware!

    First this: -Amazing to have something that looks like the beautiful blue Cherenkov light in a kitchen! In Sweden we usually have 10 A fuses for ordinary appliances, so I had to have an electrician come over and upgrade the fuse to 13 A for this 3 kW monster to work. After replacing the British plug I finally got the kettle into action and it works wonderful. It is fast and beautiful to look at, it is easy to pour from and easy to fill with cold water. The only thing that worries me is the thin and fragile-looking power switch.
