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 5 out of 5 by from Good looking smart [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Kettle looks small in box but is 17ltr its smaller and more lets say chunky which makes it really neat boils really fast and is eco friendly and you will find the water gauge at the back by the handle so kettle looks same all round looks really neat

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Broken after two months After two months the kettle is broken. When you turn it on to boil after a few seconds it sometimes turns itself off. I return to make a cup of tea to find that it is still stone cold. The plastic around the opening on the top is also quite discoloured and tatty looking already. Very disappointing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has been absolutely excellent. It turns cold water into hot boiling water in about a minute. This has been highly useful. Believe me when I tell you that tea bags are more effective and a lot nicer with hot water than cold water. Have since recommended this product to everyone I know

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick boil and compact [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Great, very compact stylish look kettle. Holds over 6 cups boils very quickly. Four cups in just over 2 minutes. Looks good. Small design. Comfortable handle cup measure on back. Steel spout. Nice large on switch. Very good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice looking kettle We bought this kettle to match the toaster we bought a while a go. At first we thought it was smaller than our last kettle but I think it is just slightly wider and it holds the same amount of water. We are pleased with the product and it looks good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent kettle Very pleased with this. Looks nice and neat, is easy to fill and pour and doesn't take too long to reach boiling when full. The one-cup boil feature is brilliant when you want a cuppa in a hurry. Would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick Kettle I bought this to go with my toaster even though they aren’t together and the fridge freezer is in between them - sight wise. It boils extremely quickly which is all I want really. It is quite light to pick up which suits me as I have arthritic hands. There is no switch to open the lid which would have been helpful but that is a minor quibble. It is smart in black (plastic - hence the lightness) with stainless steel accents. Very happy with my kettle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value The kettle is nice looking and sits well on my black granite surface. It boils quickly and without too much noise. My only criticism is that the water viewing tank is situated directly behind the handle, so when you're holding it to fill it you cannot actually see where the water mark is. Not too much of a problem, I just peer inside the kettle to guess when to stop filling! However, to just move the viewing tank to one side would make it a perfect kettle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A smart black kettle I purchased this to replace a similar but more expensive Russell Hobbs kettle that had a lid button on the handle. I feel a bit lost without the lid button, but hopefully this smart, more simple version with a manual lid will last longer than the previous one (6 weeks!) This one looks smart in black, doesn't show the water marks like the stainless one. It's about average on boiling time and not as quiet as the last one. Overall pleased so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job but minor design flaw with the lid This kettle looks great and boils quickly. There is a design flaw with the lid though as there is very little to grip on to. Not at all good for elderly or disabled people. If you need to refill after its been used, the metal plate on top is very hot and as the 'handle' is so poor, touching the plate is almost unavoidable. It is also a little noisy, though no noiser than other kettles I've had! Overall I am happy with this kettle

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Chose this kettle as I like the reliability of Morphy Richards and I love the design. It's easier to keep clean than my old stainless steel one and is light to pick up.The spout has a nice sharpness so accurate to pour.The lid is a manual lift and there's a handy cup amount widget at bottom of kettle.I found it a bit on the noisy side and average boil speed.On offer it was a very good buy and looks great with matching toaster.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sounds like a jet plane Needed a black kettle and this seemed ok ,bought Russel hobs items before and always lasted well past a couple of years even with constant use . The only down side is it is so noisy, I know it's a rapid boiler but you have to put the kettle on and leave it till is clicks off as the noise is loud enough to distract from talking , but other that it does what it does and boils water .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pleased with this llight, super speedy kettle Bought this kettle as my old one was kaput. This one is much lighter, and so much quicker to boil. Hence, saving on the electricity bill. It is easier to fill and the handle is a good size and design. The water level is easy to read, and it does not mark easily, unlike past kettles. The noise is about average, and as it boils rapidly it is negligible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bargain that looks great and boils fast I got this as a present for my partner, who seems to go through kettles at an alarming rate. This kettle looks sleek and stylish, has a one or two cup option (very economical) and boils very rapidly. I'm thinking of getting one for myself, even though there's nothing wrong with my existing kettle.
Date published: 2017-09-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decent kettle A good purchase, does anything a kettle should do. Fast boil is great but makes the same amount of noise as my previous fast boil kettle. Only thing to watch for, make sure you boil fresh water a few more times than in the instructions, as chemical taste lasted longer than expected. Good quality.
Date published: 2017-01-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lovely jug kettle, very impressed at how light it is. Plenty of room to grip handle with arthritic hands. Colour compliments kitchen well. An extremely fast boiler when using the cup guide inside the kettle (this is excellent)! All in all an absolutely brilliant buy and well worth the money.
Date published: 2017-08-02
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not As Expected My wife selected this kettle based upon the general design, boiling speed, noise level and how she believed it looked from the photo. It failed on noise and looks, it sounds apart from the more normal heating noise that it has a sort of crackle plus the photo gives a misleading impression.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best kettle ever! Having replaced kettles on almost an annual basis this appears to be the best yet. Boils quickly, looks good, easy to fill and most importantly pours very nicely. Well balanced and no spillages pouring into cups or when boiling. Would buy again (hopefully not for a couple of years)
