The Russell Hobbs Legacy Red is an electric kettle with the appearance of a retro kettle. It only takes 1 minute and 44 seconds for the water to boil. That's useful if you're in a hurry in the morning or just don't want to wait for your cup of tea. On the inside of the pitcher, you can find a size indicator for 1, 2, or 3 cups of tea. That way, you'll never boil more water than you need. The pointed spout ensure you won't spill when you pour the water into your cup. The kettle has a sturdy, stainless steel exterior. Keep in mind that steel will get hot when the water boils.
