    The only thing is the lid removal you have to pull it off it’s big and collects steam so when taking off water splashes around and the kettle is always looks steamy inside but on the plus side boils quickly and lights up nice

    I had only this kettle a couple of weeks and while filling it up I barely tipped it off the tap. I was shocked when a chunk of glass broke off the rim. The rim, in my opinion is a design fault and the glass is way too fragile for it’s purpose.
    It’s a lovely looking kettle and boils super fast but I’m sorry I didn’t read other reviews before purchase stating this fault with the rim.
    Russell Hobbs are normally my go to for electrical appliances as they are so reliable. Proof being I’m now back using my 20 year old Russell Hobbs kettle which had been demoted to the shed for garden tea/coffee making!

    Boilds fast and being glass it’s easy to see when it needs descaling. I’d recommend this

    Looks good; however unnecessary, the LEDs are quite fun. Pours pretty well; and with a glass body, it’s very obvious how much water you’ve drawn.

    I’ve seen all sorts of reviews for this kettle..
    Well we have had one a couple or three months now and we love it.
    Firstly..in response to some of the critics…yes…it doe t look like new for more than a few days !
    There is absolutely NoThing you can do about it….even when clean it will never again look absolutely crystal clear …unless you have very soft water I suppose.
    But….it is the easiest kettle to clean in every respect.
    It had a lid which totally removes…great!
    The body is wide…you can get your hand in ..
    Great !
    You can see everything..
    Exactly here there is limescale build ..great !
    There are no fiddly bits in body at all..
    It is extremely simple and minimalist…so less to get dirty and easier to clean ..great !
    When it’s clean again it’s clean..you can see it is clean..you know exactly where the bad spots are and can go at them…
    Great !
    We have had so many kettles over the years. Despite buying good ones…stainless steel…paying good money..£50 even…they don’t break they just get limed up and impossible to keep clean. This one is a simple glass jug wirh one simple stick element in and nothing else. And lid pulls off.
    So…how to clean?
    There’s nothing for it but a ahock weekly clean or..
    A less frequent and more arduous clean.
    I’ve looked it all up and I can see that precise amounts don’t matter too much…
    Basically….BICARBONATE OF SODA MIXED WITH WHITE VINEGAR…AND EVEN COME OF SOME KIND TO BUBBLE UP AND XLEAN….
    JUST BOIL UP MIX OF BICARBONATE AND WHITE CINEGAR…REPEAT AS NECESSARY…RINSE THOROUGHLY.
    I ALSO HAD TO USE NON STICK SCOURER INSDE..ESSY TO GET INTO…TO GET STUBNORN BITE EHEN I LEAVE CLEANING TOO LONG..
    NO..THE KETTLE RARELY LOOKS PRISTINE..BUT SEEING INTO IT SO CLEARLY GOADS ON YOU TO REMEMBER TO XLEAN IT….I NEVER REMEMBERED WITH OTHER KETTLES..INDEED XOULDNT FACE IT…AND THE KETTLLES ALWAYS LOADS OF FIDDLY BITS THAT WERE MISSED BY THE DESCALER.
    THAT DOESNT HAPPEN WITH THIS KETTLE.
    I CANT RECOMMEND IT ENOUGH…
    FAST BOIL…QUITE PRETTY IN BLUE…BUT ABOVE ALL EASY TO KEEP CLEAN AND YOU CAN SEE IT IS !
    Ps
    The day after i wrote this review the kettle unfortunately smashed ! Literally!
    I clipped the over worktop cupboard by mistake…not very hard either ..and whole Keller top from spout fractured badly and broke…
    So…I HAVE FOUND THE KETTLES WEAKNESS ! I’m sorry to have to add this on to my otherwise glowing review…but clearly the glass is of the thinnest sort and not at all ideal for a kettle…you’d think it would be a toughened glass. At least now you can make a truly fully informed decision.
    I’d say Russell Hobbs should cease MADE IN CHINA and start manufacturing the same great design elsewhere.

    Having wanted glass rather than a plastic kettle, this looks good and boils quickly, but… the real bugbear here is the lid. You have to take it completely off every time you fill the kettle and it’s not the easiest thing to do. It’s stiff and quite unyielding even after weeks of use and is leaving nasty scratch marks on the glass. It really needs a component that pops up in the middle to allow easy refilling. I don’t have arthritis and still find it difficult so this is one to avoid if you have problems with your hands and fingers. Even my husband finds it awkward. The other annoying thing is that as a lover of hot water bottles, the pouring lip is wide making it quite dangerous to fill a bottle as the kettle has to be held higher to get a stream of water narrow enough to go in the hole at the neck. All in all, it looks pretty but is not particularly practical. I certainly won’t buy another and will probably replace this before it naturally expires.
