When thinking about small kitchen appliances I would never have previously put a decent kettle at the top of my list. That was until my kettle gave up the ghost over the weekend. When I say gave up the ghost it didn't completely die, it just sounded like Concorde when it was boiling so much so I was fearing for my safely of that and my children!! Not wanting to inflict first degree burns should it explode, I decided to go back to traditional methods and boil water in a pan. This is when I realised that a kettle is essential, to say I was dehydrated by the time I got a hot cup of tea would have to be an understatement, I even had the "DT's" due to a lack of .

Whilst a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet, decent kettles are a whole different kettle of fish! What makes a decent kettle seems to me to be a combination of both style and substance, blended together to form a gadget that is not only a pleasure on the eyes, but a pleasure to use. Funnily enough I am of that opinion more so, since owning this Russell Hobbs Illuminating Kettle. Having seen it by chance reduced in Argoos, buy a hefty and exceedingly attractive 50%, making it just £28.99. I thought it may suit my requirements. All I really wanted was a stainless steel or chromed effect kettle to compliment the decor. So I am more than happy that by ... Read the complete review

Never before had I cared what kind of kettle sat in a kitchen, nor had I felt that a kettle could be interesting to look at. But this Russel Hobbs dual illuminating kettle catches your eye and sits nicely in your kitchen. It looks good and boils quite quickly. You're able to get a good grip on the handle to pour out the water and the spout is designed well and easy to pour. The kettle has a easy flip up lid to refil water and the clear water window allows you to easily see how much water is in the kettle without having to lift the lid. I like the calming effect of the kettle's illuminating light feature. When plugged in the kettle lights blue when not in use. ... Read the complete review

I have used quite a few kettles lately and although I wasn't too pleased with my last Russell Hobbs kettle, this Russell Hobbs 13865 Dual Illuminating Kettle beat my expectations on most levels! What attracted me to this kettle at first was it's price - it had been reduced to nearly half price at £28.99 and as I don't wish to spend more than £30 on a kettle, I thought I would take a closer look at this one in the shop. Just to add also, I am astounded by the price of kettles these days as I'm sure many people will agree!!! They never used to be so expensive, which is why I was keen on grabbing a bargain! Anyway, I thought the design of the kettle was quite ... Read the complete review

I have this kettle in my Kitchen and have had it now for a couple of years. It was given to me as a gift but I think the price was around £20? Not very expensive anyway. Now, as there is more than me in the household this kettle does get used regularly but people making hot drinks and boiling water for cooking. There is little marks on the side so you know how much to fill it up so as not to waste water and energy by boiling water you do not need to use. This is a helpful feature to us. Now is the light up feature, on standby it glows red and when boiling it glows blue. They are nice colours and illuminate the kitchen pretty well. However we ... Read the complete review
