Russell Hobbs 15075 Plastic Buxton 1.6ltr Kettle in WHITE

This Russell Hobbs Buxton 1.6 ltr Kettle is surprisingly good.

• This kettle boils really fast and is also very quiet.
• It turns off quickly once boiled and so there is no excess boiling.
• It pours well and the nice chunky handle is comfortable to grip.
• Being plastic, the kettle is lightweight to lift, and therefore not excessively heavy even when used to capacity.
• When empty, it appears to be a tiny bit unstable on it's base, however I have noticed my other kettles have been like this. It could be a safety factor so that it is not hard down on the electricity if inadvertently switched on while empty – this is just a thought. Once water is in the kettle there is no instability at all.
• Pre-1st use I boiled up the water, emptied and then rinsed the kettle out as per the User Guide. I did not find any smell or taste of plastic whatsoever.
• The User Guide is in simple language and in English only, complete with an illustration and is perfectly clear.
• The product has a 1 year Guarantee (receipt of purchase required). If the Kettle is registered on-line then an extra year is added to the Guarantee.
• The length of the Power Cable from the stand to the end of the Electric Plug is 22½ inches.

I chose White because it goes with anything, and having previously had kettles in Black, Shiny Chrome and Stainless Steel, because our water is so dreadfully hard, it does not take long for the tell tale white deposits to show up round the spout and other areas where the steam escapes.

I have high hopes that this White Kettle will keep it’s smart, crisp good looks for longer (Will update that as time goes on)

I genuinely recommend this Russell Hobbs Kettle.

UPDATE - 14 April 2016
We live in a very hard water area and this is the first kettle that seems to resist scaling up. It only had it's first De-Scale this week and to be honest, I only did it because I was doing other items in the home. This fact makes this kettle an even better buy!

Good for a few months, but now it won't turn off when the water boils.

This is a good basic kettle. Recommended with two slight blips.

Firstly, the top does not open fully, so filling can be more complicated then necessary. Note this is a very minor gripe.

Secondly, and more serious, I find the water gauge difficult to read. It's too narrow, and the two sides don't allow sufficient light to show through.

Rubbish. Purchased to replace a visually almost identical Russell Hobbs that lasted 5 years. This one is wobbles on the base, the cord is stupidly short and its just inferior in build and finish to its predecessor.

Pleased with this kettle, it does however overspill when pouring if the kettle is full but am use to that now. Just something too be aware of when using it. Would recommend
