Russell Hobbs Retro Big Electric Kettle
Practical and elegant, this Electric Kettle from Russell Hobbs is the perfect addition to a style-conscious kitchen. The retro design features durable stainless steel construction with a pull-off lid, drip-free spout, and cool-touch handle.
The water temperature gauge on the front of the kettle simplifies the process of heating water to precise temperatures for teas, pour overs, and other recipes. The water level gauge on the rear of the kettle shows markings up to 7 cups (1.7L), and the inside of the kettle features level markings for quickly boiling 1-3 cups of water.
Additionally, the removable anti-scale filter prevents mineral buildup from passing through the spout so you may enjoy freshly boiled water for tea, hot cocoa, oatmeal, French press coffee, and more.

Don’t be lured by good looks! Mine worked fine for a few weeks. Then it started to leak! Water accumulates in the temperature gauge. Ok. But also out the bottom. Leave water init overnight? The water will be on your counter in the morning!
I’ve been waiting for this kettle for 3 months and when opened, realized that I cannot use it… There are plastic parts inside that would be constantly coming in contact with boiling water.

I have been using a Russell Hobbs kettle for years and years so when it quit last week I ordered another. I just received it today and what a disappointment. The stainless is MUCH thinner than my last kettle and it is a lot louder when heating up. The second HUGE disappointment was the giant plastic bulb that backs up the temperature gauge. What were you thinking?? Who wants to boil water every morning in a stainless tea kettle that has HUGE piece of plastic in it. I mean come on. Why go with stainless then? You obviously don’t understand the market. Just a simple stainless backing with a rubber washer would have worked perfectly well. It is easy enough to remove the OTHER pieces of plastic, like the red cup gauge and I never use the filter, I don’t put tea in the kettle I use a pot to make the tea. I don’t know Russell Hobbs. I am sorry I will be sending this back.
