The super stylish Russell Hobbs Purity Kettle has a built-in Brita water filter system that reduces limescale and chlorine, and permanently absorbs any copper and lead that could occur in tap water. Over time, these chemicals can sometimes leave residue or a bad taste in your hot drink. Its built-in Brita water filtration system removes these impurities. To make sure every litre of water you boil remains pure, there is a handy built in alert to remind you when the cartridge needs to be replaced. The Purity Kettle embodies a timeless simplicity of style, with high quality transparent casing so you can watch the water as it boils. As the temperature rises, the water is infused with soft blue light which illuminates at its brightest when boiling point is reached. Stainless steel accents give this stunning kettle a premium feel. To keep your work top clutter free, the base has integrated cord storage so it can be tidied away when it’s not in use. The Russell Hobbs Purity Glass Kettle incorporates BRITA’s advanced MAXTRA+ filtration technology that goes a long way to make a better tasting hot drink. With its sleek and stylish housing it will also make a style statement in any kitchen.

Customer Questions
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.

The kettle smells weird, how can I remove the smell?

Try descaling the kettle according the descale procedure, as this removes most smells. Rinse carefully afterwards.

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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Russell Hobbs 22851 Plastic Brita Kettle. Great kettle,looks great,takes away impurities and boils fast. I'm happy with it. If you're impatient or lead a busy lifestyle you may not like it. You have to fill the filter container up to the max sign and let the water drain through twice to fill the kettle. It only fills the kettle half full, around 4 cups but this is by design. You can remove all the filter unit and use as a normal kettle but that defeats the object. You need to buy filters and it's recommended to change once a month.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as expected I bought this back in July, and waited until now to review to give it a fair enough chance. If you have more than two mugs of tea to make at a time I wouldn’t recommend this kettle. The filter system didn’t work properly for us with the tea still not being as clear as it could be. Positives are that it boils quickly and the light that comes on is pretty. It’s worth bearing in mind that you need to constantly purchase the Brita filters (about £20 for six which will last six months ish).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from looks Good and boils quick This kettle boils fast and is not as loud as some other people have said in reviews. Rapid boil will always be a bit louder than normal. Anyway filters the water welll and you will need to replace the Britta water filter about once a month. Lights up when boiling . My only reason for not giving 5 stars is that it looks big but doesn’t hold as much water as you would think. So check the capacity is enough for you before buying .

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Try holding it before you buy. Well I was very impressed with the reviews I read prior to my purchase of the kettle. It is, as many stated, a well made item, it does a good job filter out limescale and it does boil a little quicker - but not that much. What none said was this is a heavy kettle and I found the handle to be poorly designed for its weight. If you have hands like spades go ahead and buy it, but if not try it first and remember it gets heavier while you are waiting for it to fill up the reservoir the second time. Buy it for its filtering properties if you need it but if not there are better designed kettle on the market.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Filter Kettles are great This is my third filter kettle. I wouldn't want any other type now. Switch went in my previous Breville (after 3 years). This seems to have slightly less capacity in the filling tank so one v. large mug or about 2 small cups. Of course you can fill the top tank twice and wait but I can't wait that long. Opening the filling lid is the only drawback so far. It needs a hefty pull to open so I would not recommend if you struggle with grip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best kettle ever! My husband was shocked when I told him how much I had spent on a kettle but my rationale was that we needed a kettle and a water filter, this did both. Not only is this kettle good looking, my drinks taste better and it saves me the space. I adore that the filter part holds enough for 2 cups. Very, very happy indeed although dying slightly on the inside that a kettle can be mood enhancing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks good. Expensive. The first item started leaking within a day of ownership. It looks like it holds a lot of water but it doesn’t. The filter takes forever to filter the water and you get 2/3 cups per boil which is no good for a family. The filters really do not last that long leaving the annual cost of running this at more than the cost of a replacement. Will be returning as soon as the shop accepts returns to get something that doesn’t leak and is more useful and cheaper to run.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great kettle if you live in a hard water area I moved recently and found out through going through two kettles in a year that I live in a very hard water area. My friend suggested I buy a filter kettle and see if that works. Well I have been using it for about three weeks and what a difference, not one piece of lime is in my kettle now,. I searched the internet for various products and this one I bought got the best reviews so I purchased it.. I Am over the moon with this.
