Russell Hobbs Ebony Kettle – I would give it 5 stars, all but the

Great looking kettle, stays clean, boils quickly. Very pleased with our new purchase, and the stainless steel part is finger print free so happy days.

Does what it says it would do so no issues here.

Boils quickly and has a very appealing design.

Fast boil, no vibration either.

Loved this kettle in particular the flip top lid, great product and good value for money would certainly recommend it.

Exactly as stated and at a very good price.

Brought on behalf of my mom. I think she was disappointed with the quality for its price. It’s a very flimsy plastic kettle but may prove ok as it’s lightweight to handle.

First class postal service, so happy with the kettle its so quite when it boils.

This kettle was received very quickyl, is easy to use and of course use it every day, well worth the money i paid for it and it arrived very quickly. Have used it for a while now and hope it lasts as long as my last kettle.

I like everything about this kettle – apart from the strange taste that the water acquires once it’s boiled. Such a shame as i do love a nice cuppa.

I’m so please with it since i bought it. It boiled water in what it seems record time & with the cup measures on the side i always know how much water i need. Also, the design is very beautiful with it’s crome & black.

Does exactly what it says on the tin, rapid, efficient and economic ~ if a little jet-engine noisy. You really need to boil this full several times to get rid of the overpowering plastic taste, then always empty any unused water and refil with fresh for each use (. Or the tatse sneaks back) a good thing because you soon learn to just fill/use close on the exact amount you need. A great basic lightweight kettle at a bargain price, though i’d be reluctant to pay the recommended top dollar for it if you’re after top quality.

Bought this as a replacement for a cheap product bought from tescos which hasnt lasted very long. Looks great, kids love the fact it lights up. Reasonably quiet, quick to boil. Cant fault it for the money. Similar ones at least £10 and sometimes £20 more expensive in local shops. Here are the specifications for the Russell Hobbs Ebony Kettle:

  • 3 kW rapid boil and concealed element
  • 1.6 L capacity
  • Striking blue illumination
  • 360 Degrees base for right and left handed use
  • Removable, washable filter

Fits the bill it’s fast looks good not to heavy and easy to use.

This is a very useful kettle and suits my purposes adnmirably.

A good brand is the same as a good appliance. I have in my home a lot of appliances of russell hobbs (kettle, microwave, toaster, and, mixer) and i’m very happy with all it’s of this brand.

Very pleased with the kettle had this make before and it lasted years so went for same make looks good simple to use and clean.

Lighter than old kettle looks good too ,the handle is comfortable and easy to grip.

Great quality product, a really good price, boils quickly, blue illumination against the water makes some cool patterns when boiling.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • If you are paying £12 – £15 possibly acceptable – but maybe not!
  • Unremarkable
  • I would give it 5 stars, all but the

Excellent kettle, this was a replacement for a same model.

Looks great as has a shiny casing. Is very easy to clean and keep maintained. Quick boil and light to lift.

Fab kettle, found on amazon cheaper than anywhere else. Seems a bit rocky on the base at first but once it’s been used a few times this stops (think it is to do with the kettle itself changing the shape of the plastic when boiling and then setting into place). Looks good in kitchen with matching toaster.

The russell hobbs kettle is exactly as described, we are very happy with it.

I would give it 5 stars,all but the fact that,i have scoured it out twice to see if i can eliminate a nasty plastic taste. First i thought it was the tea,then the water. I returned to my old kettle,i have found the scouring as reduced the plastic taste but not eradicated it. Giving a few more days of use,and if no improvement,i shall return it. (i am concerned if i leave it to long of jeperdising my rights to return).

Easy to use , looks good and boils the water well. The grip it comfortable and easy to pour from,easy filling.

Great looking kettle and a good price too. Bought it as a gift for someone and they were very pleased with the product.

Very smart, lightweight and easy to fill. One star held back because it does dribble a little out of spout, but that doesn’t bother me too much.

Replaced identical kettle as in time lid would lose spring and open when pouring out but never splashed or spilled. But liked enough to buy again.

After following the manufacturers instructions for use of a new kettle ie boil once then ready to go – we actually boiled several kettles of water but still we get a funny taste in our drinks at least twice a week.

This is my second kettle of this style – now unavailable from my local supermarkets. My only moan was that the previous kettle still worked but the filter was worn out and then fell out. I could not source a replacement filter and therefore had to buy a new kettle.

Good product ‘does what it says on the can’.

This was advertised as a £49. The quality of this russell hobbs kettle (15076) was more £12 quality. There are some great kettles out there and this is not one of them. Read all of the reviews and make up your own minds. My observation is cheap materials and cheap build quality – also a little unsteady on it’s base (wobbles). Add to this a very loose fit lid and it may even be dangerous.

I liked this kettle so much when my old one broke i only wanted to replace it with the same one.

Tis a kettle that boils water 👌.

Good sound kettle – excellent quality.
