Pros and cons

According to our kettle expert
  • You can easily read the water's temperature with the thermometer.
  • Water can be boiled rather quickly thanks to a boiling time of 1 minute and 43 seconds.
  • With its 1.7-liter capacity you can boil water for up to 7 cups of tea.
  • The kettle's casing becomes hot when it's boiling water, so you can only pick up the kettle safely with the handle.

Description

The Russell Hobbs Retro Classic Black is equipped with a thermometer which you can use to check the water's temperature at 1 glance. Do you want to heat the water up to a temperature of 80 degrees to brew green tea? You should interrupt the heating process as soon as the water has reached the correct temperature. The water will quickly boil thanks to a boil time of 1 minute and 43 seconds. This way, you can quickly make a cup of tea for your guests and you. With a 1.7-liter capacity, you can boil sufficient water to brew 7 cups of tea. The spout of the kettle is specifically designed to reduce spilling. Nice and safe, especially when you're dealing with boiling water. The removable limescale filter ensures the limescale particles won't end up in your cup.

    The perfect kettle

    Stephanie | 14 August 2019 | Color: Black

    • Pros:
      Looks super stylish
    • Pros:
      Dial lets you know how long you have to wait
    • Pros:
      Markers inside so you never overfill
    • Con:
      Lid is a little bit hard to remove and splashes a little water

    I'm totally happy with this kettle. It looks so stylish on the counter, especially paired with the matching toaster! The dial on the front is really handy for letting you know how hot the water is. This way you know how long you have to wait and what the temperature is. Ideal for making different types of hot drinks! It's a nice size too.

    Stylish, solid kettle.

    The lid is very firm and needs a bit of a tug to get off, but the temperature meter is handy to avoid reboiling water that's already warm enough.
