Rated 1 out of 5 by doaky2 Worst purchase ever and not quality expected
Not quality expected from Russell Hobbs. Purchased to replace existing Russell Hobvs which was leaking. Switched on and boiled okay but when refilled to boil again, it would not switch on and nothing in instructions to state it had to cool down first. Plastic Base unit of kettle very hot. After Second use, plastic rim around on/off switch broke off, so had to return and revert back to leaky kettle. Poor reviews in other well known store website which I wish I had seen before purchasing this. Return no hassle with Asda

Rated 3 out of 5 by Cuddly1 Disappointed
We have always purchased Russell Hobbs appliances for their reputation and always had good value. Unfortunately, this product has let them down. We have had two kettles since January this year. The first went off after approx. eight/nine months and was replaced by Asda without any fuss. The replacement which developed a leak from the water indicator this week has just been returned and we were given a full refund. I have now purchased a similar kettle (one of Asda's own brand) which has a 2yr warranty.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Deb6161 Would not recommend this kettle
Bought this with my grocery order on line. Thought it was a good idea as free delivery with my groceries, but unfortunately the kettle leaked after 16 days from water level indicator. Phoned Asda and since I did`nt keep delivery note I was told to phone my nearest store(16 miles) to see if they would except a printed copy, thankfully they agreed so had to print off my previous order. Took it back and had the money credited to my account, so I could purchase another make and get a receipt.

Rated 1 out of 5 by RamBaff Junk - obvious manufacturing inconsistencies.
Ooooh, a cheap Russell Hobbs stainless kettle... that'll do. Then a matter of months later it develops a leak. Fair play to Asda, no questions asked it was replaced. 6 months later, pop goes the RCD and mains breaker. Burning smell from the kettle and the fuse has burst too. So, a different fault and had just about a year out of the two units combined. Don't be fooled by the brand; don't waste your money, they're junk.

Rated 5 out of 5 Very happy with purchase
I bought this kettle as a dircet replacement as the last on expired after 3 years of busy use in a hard water area. It looks good being a shiny chrome, is fairly quiet and has only a small amount of plastic in contact with the water (the water level indicator) and has a good capacity. It lights up blue when you start to boil water.
Delivery was quick and the price was the best I could find - so I would recommend

What can I say - it's a kettle and does as it's supposed to do - boils water. It is reasonably quick, stylish and holds the 1.7 ltr of water. I bought this kettle online due to it being £7 cheaper than it was in store. As I have only owned this product for a week - cannot make any comment on how long it will last - hopefully longer than the Asda own brand one that lasted 10 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Teejay13 Love this kettle!
I shopped around for the best deal for this style of kettle, most only have the illuminated window on one side which is always the wrong one for me as a left handed person. This kettle has the window on both sides, the blue illumination is very good, vivid and effective. It boils very quickly, is quiet and easy to clean. The best kettle we have ever owned so far.
