Customer Questions
Do your kettles contains filters?
Yes all our kettles contain filters. Filters can be replaced during warranty period for wear and tear issue.
Can I heat other liquids besides water in my kettle?

No, the kettle is intended for heating water only. Do not use it to heat up any other liquids

Why does the noise of the kettle increase as the kettle comes to boil?

The water in this kettle is heated up rapidly, which causes the noise. This is a normal phenomenon and there is nothing wrong with your kettle.

How can I clean the outside of the kettle?

Clean the outside of the kettle and the base with a warm damp soft cloth. Do not let the moist cloth come into contact with the cord, the plug and the connector of the base.

Never immerse the kettle or its base in water and do not use abrasive cleaning agents such as scourers to clean the kettle.

What are the white spots on the bottom of my kettle?

Depending on the hardness of the water where you live, small spots may appear on the heating element of your kettle when you use it. This is the result of scale build-up on the heating element and on the inside of the kettle over time.

The harder the water, the faster scale builds up. Scale can occur in different colours and although scale is harmless, too much scale can influence the performance of your kettle. Descale your kettle regularly to pro long the life of your kettle.

Can I use the kettle without the anti-scale filter?

While the kettle will still function without the anti-scale filter, the flow of the pour may not be as smooth and there may even be a little ‘spitting’ during the boil with a full kettle. And of course, the function of filtering out minerals from getting into the cup will not be there. We would recommend always using the anti-scale filter. While some are metal, many of our kettles use a plastic anti-scale filter – these are all BPA-free and food safe, and will not affect the water taste.

Do I need to descale my kettle?

Yes, you have to descale your kettle regularly. Minerals present in tap water will cause scale to build up inside your kettle when water is heated.

Regularly descaling your kettle will help to: reduce the boiling time and save energy, keep the inside of the kettle clean and extend the kettles life.

Regular descaling prolongs the life of the kettle. We recommend that you descale regularly - at least monthly.

You must only use a descaler that is suitable for use in plastic products. If you use a descaling agent, follow the instructions on the bottle or package to descale your kettle.

The kettle doesn't work. What should I do?

This problem may have multiple causes:

The appliance is not connected to the mains.
The dry-boil protection has been activated.
The kettle needs to be descaled.
Below you can find the solutions for each of these causes.

Solution Cause 1: The appliance is not connected to the mains. Check if the plug of the kettle has been inserted properly into the wall socket and if the wall socket is working.

Solution Cause 2: The dry-boil protection has been activated. The dry-boil protection is a safety feature that automatically switches off the kettle. It will be activated if the kettle is switched on with insufficient or no water inside or if all of water inside the kettle has evaporated during operation.

To reset the dry-boil protection, you have to lift the kettle from its base and fill it with cold water. When you place the kettle back on the base, the dry-boil protection is reset and you can switch the kettle on again.

Solution Cause 3: The kettle needs to be descaled. Regularly descaling your kettle will help to: reduce the boiling time and save energy, keep the inside of the kettle clean and extend the kettles life.

Regular descaling prolongs the life of the kettle. We recommend that you descale regularly - at least monthly.

You must only use a descaler that is suitable for use in plastic products. If you use a descaling agent, follow the instructions on the bottle or package to descale your kettle.

If the above solution(s) did not help to solve your problem, please contact the Russell Hobbs Consumer Service Department on 0345 658 9700.

Why is water ejected from the spout during heating up?

This indicates that the kettle has been filled beyond the maximum level indication.

For safety reasons, you should never fill the kettle beyond the MAX indication on your water level indication window.

There is water/condensation on the base of the kettle. Is this normal?

If you find some condensation or a few drops of water on the base, this is not a manufacturing defect but a normal occurrence.

However, if you see more water than just a few drops on the base or under the base, please contact the Russell Hobbs Consumer Service Department on 0345 658 9700.

The water boiled in this kettle tastes metallic. How can I improve the taste?

Try descaling the kettle according to the descale procedure. Rinse carefully afterwards.

If this does not help, please contact the Russell Hobbs Consumer Service Department on 0345 658 9700.

Why does it take a longer time for the water to boil?

If the water boiling procedure has slowed down, the heating element of the kettle is probably covered with scale. Descale the kettle to remove the scale and revert back to quick boiling.

How can I descale the kettle and how often should I do this?

You must only use descaler suitable for use in plastic products. If you use a descaling agent, follow the instructions on the bottle or package to descale your kettle.

Regular descaling prolongs the life of the kettle. Kettles should be descaled regularly - at least monthly.

Contact your local or regional water board for information on the hardness of your tap water. If you use the kettle more than 5 times a day, you may have to descale it more often.

Regularly descaling your kettle will help to pro long the life of your kettle, keep the inside of the kettle clean and reduce boiling times which will then reduce energy consumption.

Can I throw away my kettle with the normal household waste at the end of its life?

No, to preserve the environment please hand it in at an official collection point for recycling or you can return to us and we will recyle it for you.

Our addresses for recycling is; WEEE Recycling Department, Russell Hobbs Ltd, Heathmill Road, Wombourne, Wolverhampton WV5 8AQ or WEEE Recycling Department, Russell Hobbs Ltd, Fir Street, Failsworth, Manchester, M35 0HS.

What happens when I accidentally switch on the kettle with no water or not enough water?

This kettle is equipped with boil-dry protection. The kettle will automatically switch off if it is accidentally switched on when there is no water or not enough water in it.

To use it again lift the kettle from its base and fill it with cold water to reset boil-dry protection. The kettle is now ready for use again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stylish kettle [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a good looking kettle and works well. It takes 4minutes to boil when filled to maximum and only 1 minute and 18 seconds for two cups. The indicator light is bright. I liked the clear indicator inside the kettle for 1,2 and 4 cups. I am not happy with where the water level indicator on the outside is as it is behind the handle so not so easy to view especially when filling. It pours well even when full. It is not too noisy when in use. It fills two mugs when using 2 cup setting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish Kettle [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The jug handle looks great and makes it easier to handle than other kettles. It holds a lot of water and when full boils in about 4 mins, the quick boil feature is great and takes less than 1 min. The narrow spout makes it much more exact when pouring and the filter is a must in areas with hard water. 2 little niggles are that the metal plate on the lid gets very hot and as the lid opens less than 90 degrees its a little awkward to see the quick boil marker inside. But pros outweigh cons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek looking and fast boiling [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This modern looking kettle is ideal for fast boiling, taking 45 seconds to boil just one cup. It claims to save 70% energy, but it certainly saves time. The kettle is easy to operate and it's also easy to clean, including the removable washable filter. The capacity is 1.7 litres which makes it useful for when multiple cups of tea or coffee are required. Recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Russel Hobbs 20413 It is a reall good design you can put just one cup of water in as the heating element is concealed and not exposed so it should not burn out , it boils extremely fast and very hot compared to the old one , and pours very smoothly without splashing out everywhere so there is no spillage and the build quality and looks are very pleasing , I would highly recommend to anyone

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart looking kettle Chose this kettle as I wanted a black one to match my Toaster and coffee maker. Nice design, smart looking with its little bits of chrome, and very light weight compared to my previous one. Lid flips up easily to fill, aspout pours well, and the 3 level markers inside are helpful if you only want to fill up enough to make one or two cups. All in all a great kettle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick boil and nice looking The kettle looks good and does what it says on the tin. The 1 cup fill is useful and it does boil quickly. The only negative about this kettle is that the walls are not insulated, so the outer body of the kettle gets very hot and also it means due to the high conductivity the water quickly loses heat after it has been boiled.
