This kettle dribbles boiling water all over the place!!!! It spills out over the SIDES of the spout, AND sometimes OVER THE RIM of the kettle. It leaves puddles on the worktop - or if you're not over a worktop, drips boiling water onto your feet. It also dribbles down the body of the kettle, where it dries on the aluminium surface to create dark, dirty looking stains.
Worst of all, the water dribbles INTO THE BASE of the kettle where the mains electrical connection is. This is extremely dangerous, and may explain the short circuits, fusing, and loud bangs experienced by other reviewers.
One reviewer has posted a picture showing this kettle pouring perfectly, however, it will only pour as shown in that photo if you VERY CAREFULLY tilt the kettle JUST enough to produce a VERY SLOW stream of water from the spout. If you lose concentration or tilt it just a little bit more it will start dribbling all over the place.
It makes far more noise than any other kettle we've owned, probably due to the thin metallic body.
THE LID DOES NOT FULLY OPEN !!! The lid will only bend back to an angle of about 60 degrees, so when filling the kettle you have to try and position it under the tap with a half-closed lid getting in the way all the time.
There is NO WATER LEVEL INDICATOR.
I have to wonder did Russell Hobbs actually test this kettle? Maybe they tested it using cold water, because with cold water the dribbling is not as bad. (I tried it with both). Maybe this has something to do with the density, viscosity, or flow properties of boiling versus cold water?
Finally, if you have already bought one of these kettles, DO NOT ALLOW CHILDREN TO USE IT.
UPDATE: August 2014. The kettle was about halfway to boiling when there was a sharp "crack" sound and all of the house lights went off. The kettle's element had shorted out, and in doing so had tripped the house earth leakage detector. The kettle is now completely dead. Whoever designed this piece of garbage should be ashamed.
It seemed a very good deal when we bought it for £15, mid December 2012. After receiving it, I immediately went to order another, only to find the price had already doubled, so decided against it.
It is much quieter than its predecessor, but that one didn't seem to last particularly well, so wondered if this one would last any better.
Later bought another for just under £20 when it was available, which seemed quite good value at that price.
Since then the first one just stopped working and blew the contact breaker after only 7 weeks of normal use. Amazon would not respond to my communications on this to provide a replacement or refund.
So if you want one, don't buy it from Amazon, as they won't honour their obligations under the trades descriptions act, to replace faulty goods that are not fit for purpose. I have, anyway, seen them in the shops for less than £20, and at least you can take it back to them if it stops working after 7 weeks.

Have since written to Russell Hobbs giving purchase details and, after a while, they agreed to replace it free of charge. This model was no longer available, so have just received a model 20070, Cambridge in brushed stainless steel as a replacement. It is a different shape and has a removable, rather than hinged, lid, but that doesn't matter to me.
Yesterday, Sunday 190114 and barely two months old there was both an electrical flash-and-bang that sent the Russell Hobbs kettle to the dustbin. Our kitchen electrical appliances are always treated with respect and in accordance with manufacturers' recommendations.
Our kitchen is due for total gutting and to be completely renewed in every aspect. Accordingly, last Thursday 160114 two properly qualified electricians spent a day at our property testing everything electrical at a cost of £192:00. Nothing was found to be wanting.
Our new kitchen will have no appliance in the brand name of Russell Hobbs.

I really like this kettle, looks good, boils quickly. The absence of water gauge doesn't worry me as I always look inside or feel the weight to judge how much is left - I've never used water gauges in the past. I bought a similar one for the office several months ago and have found it easy to use and efficient there. Don't mind that the outside gets hot; it's to be expected with a metal case.
But - I'd give it 5 stars except I've scalded my hand quite badly when pouring out to a hot water bottle (with a narrow neck). I spilt water on my hand and also the lid lifted up, steam came out and it was quite painful. Now I'm just more careful and pour more slowly (my previous kettle had a narrower spout) so no further problems. I do like the hinged lid but find I need to make sure it's closed properly.
I'd definitely recommend this kettle and supplier to anyone, as long as you take care with metal casing and pouring slowly.
