Review and Buying Guide of Russell Hobbs 18278 Deluxe Stainless Steel Kettle

I like it a great deal, i am quite satisfied with it so significantly. The shipping and delivery on the other hand was ‘mrw. Es’ (a horrible organization right here in spain)they lost the initially get. I waited two weeks then noted it to amazon who shipped me a new just one the quite next day free of charge (many thanks amazon)it then took mrw 3 unsuccessful tries to even find my condominium. They then gave up, and i had to meat them near mcdonald’s. (lol) (which i cant do each individual time i purchase something from amazon)i have in no way had a issue like this with any other delivery services, as my urbanization is very easy to uncover. Summary:russell hobbs kettle – greatamazon – greatmrw shipping and delivery – epic are unsuccessful.

Has a 3 your guarantee if you register on-line (2 several years otherwise) – a truly awesome chrome impact jug kettle that will work effectively. 55 several years back (1960) russell hobbs introduced the classic k2 automated kettle (the world’s second automated boil & switch off kettle – the first becoming the 1955 russell hobbs k1). Back again then this russell hobbs k2 kettle charge £7, nearly fifty percent a weeks average wage of £15, and £7 would equate to £150 in todays income. The aged k2 kettle could effortlessly perform for 15 yrs in addition, mainly as every modular part from the deal with to the lid to the heating factor and automatic change could be bought as a spare and effortlessly replaced (albeit not that cheaply). So if your new £33 russell hobb 18278 jug kettle only lasts three several years prior to heading to whitegoods heaven, in authentic phrases it can be most likely nevertheless much less expensive to personal per 12 months than the outdated ‘ultra-reliable’ k2 kettle. As well as the ordinary family electricity running price of an electrical kettle is a different £24 for each calendar year, £72 above 3 decades, so you could as properly have a seriously great jug kettle to use when investing this. We purchased this russell hobbs 18278 deluxe jug kettle in tremendous shiney chrome outcome stainless steel from a community office store for £32. On the box it states ‘guarenteed for up to three years’.

Just after boiling 3 periods as instructed, have manufactured tea ever because without the need of troubles flavor is fine. (we do use excellent tea baggage) as for complaints that kettle system gets hot, most metal ones do ,until insulated, you are boiling h2o soon after all. Very content with invest in and would advocate it.

Comments from buyers

“Russell Hobbs Deluxe stainless steel kettle – Excellent!, Best Kettle ever purchased, Great all rounder – Best reviews ive seen for a kettle!!, Just the job – does what a kettle should, Wonderful Kettle for 1 Month but Now Leaking!, Loving the blue.”

Just the work – does what a kettle must. Ordered this kettle not long ago to replace a diverse make that unsuccessful. Great on the lookout in polished stainless steel. Notice that the lid is brushed, not polished – possibly so it will not exhibit fingerprints?.Polished physique does exhibit marks, but conveniently wiped off. Fills nicely – press a button on leading of handle and lid pops up. Pops open up to about forty five levels, but will open up to ninety levels manually. Durable foundation – kettle effortlessly goes on and comes off. Drinking water pours out of spout nicely. Press tiny lever on base of manage to activate. Instantly switches off when boiled. Lights up a awesome blue while boiling (i guess that lets you know it is working?). Has the more substantial 3kw aspect, so boils swiftly. Not marketed as a ‘quiet’ boil model, but it is really not loud in procedure, i guess regular. There is a matching toaster if you have to have one particular. Really don’t suppose most of us care what make a gadget like this is – will not they all do the exact task?.At £45, it is at the upper stop as far as value is involved (our white plastic 1 at do the job was £10).

This kettle is great, boils rapidly, for equally remaining and correct handed people, the blue mild that arrives on when the kettle is switched on is fantastic for the partially sighted, i would have favored the total kettle to be brushed as the polished displays every single mark, the kettle does get really warm contrary to the plastic ones, not as noisey as my last kettle, on the complete a fantastic kettle.

Acquired this from amazon as replacement for one more and this is excellent value and an superb kettle do not be place off by the to start with weeks boilings as there is a slight again style but this soon vanishes and it boils speedy and is incredibly easy to clear and appears to be like excellent in the kitchen area some individuals reviewed and mentioned discoloured mine is nonetheless shiny. Only dilemma was i obtained a person from tesco and it was dearer than amazon learnt the lesson although. Superb assistance and would propose this kettle.

    Has a three your warranty if you register on-line (2 years otherwise) – a really nice chrome effect jug kettle that works well. 55 years ago (1960) russell hobbs introduced the classic k2 automatic kettle (the world’s second automatic boil & switch off kettle – the first being the 1955 russell hobbs k1). Back then this russell hobbs k2 kettle cost £7, nearly half a weeks average wage of £15, and £7 would equate to £150 in todays money. The old k2 kettle could easily work for 15 years plus, largely as every modular component from the handle to the lid to the heating element and automatic switch could be bought as a spare and easily replaced (albeit not that cheaply). So if your new £33 russell hobb 18278 jug kettle only lasts 3 years before going to whitegoods heaven, in real terms it’s probably still cheaper to own per year than the old ‘ultra-reliable’ k2 kettle. Plus the average household electricity running cost of an electrical kettle is another £24 per year, £72 over three years, so you may as well have a really nice jug kettle to use when spending this. We bought this russell hobbs 18278 deluxe jug kettle in super shiney chrome effect stainless steel from a local department store for £32. On the box it says ‘guarenteed for up to 3 years’.

      Bought this kettle and matching toaster 4 years ago and have always been very pleased with it’s design and usability. Sadly, the kettle began to leak at the base of the water gauge last week. I have ordered a cheaper replacement on the basis that if you pay over the average amount for a kettle that you might expect it to last for a little longer than 4 years.

        This kettle is well built but very noisy and a slow boiler.

    Appears to be a good sound kettle. Appears to be a good sound kettle. They are used a great deal and none of them seem to last for very long. This is a good value product.

    Despite some negative comments i bought this kettle and we are very pleased with it. Very smart looking and quick to boil. Not had any signs of leaking, no difficulty filling or pouring. Being able to see how much water is in it is very useful.

      Purchased this from amazon as replacement for another and this is good value and an excellent kettle do not be put off by the first weeks boilings as there is a slight back taste but this soon vanishes and it boils quick and is very easy to clean and looks great in the kitchen some people reviewed and stated discoloured mine is still shiny. Only problem was i purchased one from tesco and it was dearer than amazon learnt the lesson though. Excellent service and would recommend this kettle.

        Pleased with the kettle which i bought to match the toaster. However, it is a shame that the sides of the kettle are chrome and only the top and a small bit of the handle are brushed steel as if it was the other way round it would match the design of the toaster much better. Having said that, it is very sleek looking and boils quickly. As another reviewer said, the sides get much hotter than a plastic design kettle so watch out for that.

    But it is not worth the current asking pricethis is a good kettle, only cons (apart from price now) 1. Lid opening a bit of a faff (i you don’t like to fill via the spout for reasons best known to your self) 2.

      This kettle was bought to replace numerous kettles that we have had over the years that have leaked or stopped functioning,we have tried several brands but this so far has the best looks and reliable track record at present.

        Loved it at first but not robust enough. We were well-pleased with this kettle for some time. Fast (and reasonably quiet) boil, nice appearance (we have the matching toaster) and nice spout design that doesn’t drip everywhere. We’ve had the odd issue with the lid- it’s sometimes reluctant to pop up – but otherwise fine. Today the switch broke- pressed it down and it just fell floppily down without turning the kettle on. It seems the plastic lever that activates the switch has snapped where it joins the mechanism. I don’t consider less than two years to be an adequate lifetime for a kettle, so i will be contacting amazon customer services about this.

    I like this product but thought it was matt silver rather than polished steel (my mistake given the title i guess but i was going from the picture which looks more like a matt finish). It boils quickly and the blue light is nice. However, being left handed, i would’ve preferred the measurements to be on both sides as i pour with my left hand usually. I’ve had to switch hands so that i see the blue light and also see the measurements on the side. The tea did have a horrible taste initially despite me following the instructions to boil it a few times first. However, this seems to have settled down now (i may have gotten used to it but i think it has worn off as well). Overall i would recommend it as it does look good and does the job.

      I had to return the original kettle as it was leaking along the strip where you see the water level. In fairness amazon accepted the return and sent me out a new kettle without delay. A couple of weeks back the “on” switch packed in so the kettle is now in the recycling box and i’ve bought a new phillips kettle locally. Would have expected the kettle to last more than 18 months so 3 stars.
