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 Loving the modern look [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The thing that stands out the most to me is the lovely lines around the kettle... it makes it look extremely trendy and definitely stands out! it is fairly lightweight! Noise wise it is actually quiet really... i find i can watch tv in the next room without the kettles feeling like it’s in my ear, but at the same time i can hear when it has finished boiling which is good too! The handle is well shaped and is easy to grip hold of when pouring. Really lovely kettle!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If BMW made a kettle, they would have made this! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Looks expensive, feels solid and looks great. Beautiful aluminium look finish on black. Boils one cup of water in under a minute to save energy. Fastest kettle I’ve used. Easy to read water level. The lid comes off easily for fast topping up. The on/off switch feels high quality with a firm on click and a bright blue light ensure you never wait for a kettle to boil that hasn’t been turned on. A swivel base movement and a washable limescale filter that doesn’t need replacing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from does not boil the water properly I never think I get a really hot cup tea - when it boiled and if I press the boil right after it done it boils again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boils quickly and quietly [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Very impressed with the speed this kettle boils, and also how quiet it is in operation. It has three red markers inside to measure one, two or three cups, which Russell Hobbs says will save 60% in energy. Hard to say whether it does, but it'll certainly save water. There's also the usual window on the side with two, four and six cup markers and a 1.7 max line. The handle is chrome-like plastic, and the on/off switch has a blue LED on the end. It also looks pretty funky too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and Sleek Kettle [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Very modern and sleek looking kettle that stands out from the crowd. If I didnt know the brand, I would have thought at first glance that this was an high end designer range. Runs great like a kettle should, fast boiling is great and not overly noisy. Love the level feature in the kettle where you can just fill to the number of cups you want to make, thus saving time and energy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my pretty kettle [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Absolutely no bad points for this, it boils water! The fast boil is great though, 45 seconds for a quick cuppa when in a rush. I tend to always fill to red levels inside for fast boil, it saves energy and time so great! The best part is how it looks, Shiney,rippled and a bit beautiful!!!! Love this kettle, looks so good I think I might have to get the toaster to match.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish black kettle [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Its stylish black kettle, which would suit any home. Looks lovely on my black worktop. The kettle is very light even when filled with water. Its easy to fill. Inside there are levels marked out with red plastic shapes to indicate 1, 2, 3 cups. I found that filling into the 3 line made two nice size mugs and by only boiling water which is need this could help save electic. For larger familys like mine the kettle is big and easily copes with out having to refill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classy Kettle Good looking, fast boiling, fairly quiet kettle. Good quality, nice and light and replaced a much more expensive make that was very heavy and slow and this was a third of the price. Very happy and would recommend.
