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 its a kettle, it boils water! what to say? it claims to boil water, in different quantities, and thats what it does. This replaces the same model which was getting a bit tatty. I've not given it the full five stars, because the little mesh bit inside the spout is very flimsy. With the last one, once the mesh deteriorated after regular cleaning, the kettle dribbled when poured, and we couldnt get a replacement. no doubt the same will happen here, hence the mark down. shame they cant put a couple of replacement ones in the box, or advise how to obtain them when needed

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Buyer beware This kettle was bought for use in an office, and whilst it certainly looks the part, the build quality leaves something to be desired. The lid is flimsy and does not seal well and the filter in the spout is a particularly poor clip on affair. Not sure how long this will last with multitudinous boil cycles performed each day and when 75% full has a tendency to spit out drops of boiling water just before cutting out . It does boil quickly , which is appreciated in a busy office environment .

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Basic kettle for a basic price. This kettle boils water but the catch on the lid is not great so it takes a few goes to close it properly. Also the spout is not well designed so it tends to spill water everywhere when poured. However if you need a cheap kettle for short term use (as I do) this is fine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not great quality. Took straight back. I bought this kettle as I wanted a straightforward white design. When I got it home the quality wasn't what I had expected from Russell Hobbs. The kettle was very light and it wobbled on the base. I took it straight back and bought a Bosch one which I am very pleased with. It was a much better weight and quality. I can't comment on the speed which it boils at or any features as I didn't get to the stage of using it. Most disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Kettle This is the third Russell Hobbs Textures kettle we have bought. This model tends to last about three years before the unit fails - usually a plastic part or in the last case, the element, but it is used several times a day, every day of the year. We selected this kettle after trialling several, as this one does not affect the taste of the water, which some do. This is also the most stable when sat on its plate, as others sometimes rock slightly. I have no hesitation in recommending this kettle. It represents excellent value for money and compared favourably with kettles of twice or even three times the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from One to avoid Boil up a couple of times in succession and the lid pops up. Like the heat expands the kettle a bit and the lid 'clip' or whatever it is, doesn't stay closed. Wouldn't recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Whoo A Good Plastic Kettle I am a fan of Russel Hobs Kettles, over the years, as you can imagine, there have been a few, and yes they have also improved on the wear tear & rust like the last kettle (went rusty around the top rim )…. But now I have this fantastic kettle that looks good, and I mean it does look good, quick boil , boils one cup, and a good pourer, and it cannot rust around the rim, so one very happy customer

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Basic kettle Basic plastic kettle, boils quickly, quieter than my old one. The removable filter sometimes makes the water stream uneven when pouring, this can be improved by repositioning the filter or removing completely. I went for the white one which is very white, the grey may have been better in my kitchen. Not the most stylish kettle but it does the job better than my previous more expensive one.
