When water is boiled in this kettle it has a distinct unpleasant flavour. We have tried to get rid of this taste by filtering the tap water before boiling it. It doesn't work. Also a piece of the water guide inside came away and has developed a leak. Won't be buying this one again.

Excellent kettle. Slightly noisier than last one but not a problem boils fast. Easy to fill however filter fell out from spout but just put it back in. Good service from Asda direct and excellent price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Logicalandpracticalbutmad It's a kettle
It's a very nice kettle. It boils water and the blue light is very hynoptic. As bubbles form in the water the blue light flickers with any movement of water, the flashing blue light as it gets near boiling is very pretty. Tea & coffee taste wonderful made with water from this kettle. Pours without dribling, unlike me. Lands without any damage when I throw it at the rats in the shed. Perfect. Wish it had a whistle, or alarm. My new kettle has given me Joy also, to help with the washing up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Parky85 Our second purchase of this model
This is the second one of these kettles we have had. The first one was bought two years ago and recently just packed up suddenly for no reason at all. The lid was temperamental and didn't always close easily. It also occasionally had a sort of metal taste to the water when boiled. Then not long ago it started to leak quite badly out of the measure on the side when we had more than 4 cups of water in. You might be asking then why did we buy another one?! Well I love the design of this one and we were desperate to get another kettle quickly as we had company coming! So far so good the new one is working well & the lid shuts better but we still have had the odd "funny" taste! The plastic measure isn't see through like the last one & looks a little "cheap" but for the price it is worth it.

the Russell Hobbs kettle is disappointing because the filter falls out & is difficult to put back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed76 Did not expect this from a reputable company
Collected from the store late Tuesdayafternoon and by Wednesday lunch it was re-packed and ready to go back to the store for replacement. Returned it to the store who invited me to chose my own replacement from their shelf stock. I selected one that still had the Security Tag on it (i.e. new stock), returning the following day WITH THE SAME FAULT.
On both kettles after much less than 10 operations the lid refused to close. Never again!

Good kettle, as well as looking stylish it boils really quick and the water stays hot..
The light illuminates to blue while boiling. I like the way it is easy to use the base moving from right and left hand use.
