Russell Hobbs 18267 Regency
I must admit to being quite pleased when our last kettle boiled its last drop of hot water - I wasn't a fan of it. It was a silver Cookworks one and whilst it done the job, I missed having a fancy kettle. So off I searched (quite happily) for a new kettle when I came across the Russell Hobbs 18267. I purchased it from the JD Williams catalogue and it was £45 - alot for a kettle but I really did love the look of this one!
The kettle comes in a largish Russell Hobbs box with a picture of the kettle on the front (and far too much packaging inside the box!). The kettle itself is brushed steel with a plastic window which shows you how much water there is in the kettle which glows blue when the kettle is boiling (this is the little effect I love!). The blue light is really quite bright and it glows lovely when the kitchen is dark. It is a very modern looking kettle and would suit any modern style kitchen.
The handle is black plastic as is the switch to switch the kettle on. Across the bottom of the kettle underneath the plastic water fill window it says Russell Hobbs in their font. The lid easily flips up at the touch of the button at the top for when you need to refill it. And simply clips back into place when you push it back down to close it. The kettle is cordless for ease of moving around the kitchen with it and is really light weight. I do not find this kettle at all heavy, even when it is filled to its capacity.
Water wise, the kettle holds 1.7L of water. We worked this out to be 6 mugs of tea when we used it which is pretty good going in my opinion.
Looks wise it is asthetically pleasing and it boils very quickly as it has a rapid boil function. It is everything you could want from a kettle - it is easy to set up, literally just a case of getting it out the box, giving it a boil to get rid of anything unwanted and away you go. The only downside I have found is that it is very loud when it is boiling. Now our kitchen is quite away from out living room so you cannot really hear it boiling if you are in there but if you are in the kitchen and using the telephone whilst the kettle is boiling it is impossible to hear the person on the other end - it is just that loud! But that is really its only fault. We have had the kettle for nearly a year now and it isn't showing any signs of wear. It still looks brand new.
