This is a WONDERFUL electric kettle. The inside IS ACTUALLY STAINLESS! A lot of products claim "Stainless Steel" but they only have SS accents. This IS Stainless. The only thing that isn't Stainless inside the pot is the little on/off flap. If you like tea, cup of soup, even warming water for a baby bottle, this is the thing for you. It takes less then1/3 of the time it takes me to heat water on my electric stove top (I tried both at the same time. The kettle won by mile!) It has a working temperature gauge on the front if you want a specific temp, or it will heat to boiling & then shut off so you can't boil the kettle dry. It has a super-easy one-thumb ON switch, and it automatically shuts off when you lift the pot off the heating disk (small round disk with a plug-disk is same size as bottom of the pot so is does not take up any more counter space than the pot itself.) Easy grip handle stays cool, and a glass tube on the pot between the handle gives you the FULL line so you don't overfill the pot and makes it easy to see the water level without having to remove the lid. The RED COLOR is a little darker then the red of my Fiestaware (which I bought the pot to match my displayed items) but it's close enough and does not clash.(Note: It is the NEW Fiestaware and is a different color red than the vintage stuff. The pot MAY actually match the older stuff.) I would totally recommend this product to anyone-even my Mom, and she's fussy! It's a nice looking piece-I leave it out on my counter for the pop of color. It's a sturdy AND classy piece I'm proud to own & display!

Quick and Easy to Use!
Customer review from russellhobbs.com logo
I love this kettle! Russell Hobbs Retro style kettle has made me so happy! It saves me time boiling water on the stove, it's also much better than microwaving water. It has a 1.7L capacity, which is great when I want to make a bunch of hot coco or herbal tea for family & friends. It has a gauge on the side and a 1-3 cup marker on the inside for smaller needs. It heats up pretty quick, and I enjoy having the temperature gauge so I don't boil it hotter than I want it. I like the fact it has an auto shut of feature, even though I found myself turning it off sooner, as I didn't need my water steaming hot. The best thing of all, I feel like Russell Hobbs kettle is the full package, as it also looks great in my kitchen. It's one of the best additions I've added in a long time, and I hope, this kettle will continue to show off its style for years to come. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I love the classic look
Customer review from russellhobbs.com logo
Russell Hobbs 1.7 liter electric kettle. I really like the classic look, with the black and stainless, and the analog thermometer. No LEDs, programming, or endless buttons. It reminds me of small appliances from the old days that would last forever. I'd be proud of the way it looks when having tea with guests. It's so handy having a thermometer to get to the perfect tea temperature rather than having to guess as with heating water in the microwave, and it doesn't produce a lot of waste heat as does using the stovetop. -A properly grounded, 3-prong 120 volt electrical outlet is required for operation of this electric kettle. Do not use on ungrounded 2-prong electrical outlets. -1.7 liters (about 1.8 quarts) is the maximum volume marked on the kettle, which fills the kettle around 3/4 full. This is just over seven 8oz coffee/tea cups. -To prevent scald burns, do not open (or leave open) the kettle lid while in operation. -Filling with 1.7 liters of cold tap water, I had bubbles appear on the bottom of the kettle in under 2 minutes. At 6 minutes it was boiling, and at 7 minutes 15 seconds, with a hard rolling boil, the auto shut-off turned the machine off. -Filling with one typical coffee cup of cold tap water, I had bubbles appear on the bottom of the kettle in under 30 seconds, and in about 1 minute 30 seconds, with a hard rolling boil, the auto shut-off turned the machine off. These single cup boil times were similar with refrigerator-cold filtered water. -As explained in the kettle's owner's booklet, you will note a few drops of water under the kettle after the boiling process. This is normal. The kettle captures a bit of steam to activate the auto shut-off, and the condensation of this steam is released below the kettle onto the top of the base plate. -The kettle can be turned off manually by triggering the power switch on the base plate, or by simply picking up the kettle from the base plate. -A full kettle of water stayed warm long after shutting off. I heated a full 1.7 liter (about 1.8 quarts) to full boil and auto shut-off, opened the lid of the kettle, and left it alone for about an hour. After on hour, I measured the temperature with a digital thermometer and found the water to still be 117 degrees. I did not re-heat the water to boiling again, but I think that re-heat would have happened quite quickly. -The booklet does not explain the heating process, but I'd guess the method of heating takes place by induction of a magnetic field in the bottom of the kettle, not in the base plate, which seems to only act as the electrical power source. Whichever, the heating process seems well insulated as the base plate and the bottom of the kettle did not become dangerously hot after the boiling process. -First-time operation consists of 2 cycles of boiling and discarding a full 1.7 liter kettle of water to clean and sanitize the kettle. Periodic de-scaling of water deposits is described in the owner's booklet. Plus it's big enough to get my hand in when I do want to wash it out. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase and would recommend it to a friend, or feel proud to give as a gift. It's obvious Russell Hobbs put a lot of effort into designing a good looking, quality product, that will last a long time. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Classic Stylish Kettle
Customer review from russellhobbs.com logo
I received my white Retro Style Electric Kettle about six weeks ago. I absolutely love it! It looks perfect on the counter. Loving the thermostat that shows temp of the water, the heating element is in the base not the kettle itself and the retro style.
