Russell Hobbs 18947-70 Colours Royal Blue kettle, safety lid, 2,200 W (household goods)

Customer Review

The kettle gets two asterisks design, because if one of those classic English-style Kitchen Like he is nice to look at, in fact. But even here there is a little thing that I find inconsistent: the really big oversized and not beautiful Palstikschalter for dressing. It sticks out like a foreign body from the otherwise plain design.

But of function, he know two vulnerabilities, and there a kettle now has time not many more features which compensate for weaknesses, he falls for me unfortunately what the terms under the three-star border:
Vulnerability 1: you can only see very poorly the capacity indicator and needs to make right to see where you are
Weak Telle 2: the kettle is not designed for one-hand guide. During mixing that may be yet to get over when he stands on the hot plate can throw the switch. Quite unhappy this shortcoming, however, is when opening the lid. Here the click with your thumb is simply more practical. Both when filling so also when opening with hot water and the resulting hot steam it bothers me greatly that I have to overlap with the other hand as I hold with the other hand.

Of the functionality here is nothing wrong with the boiler, he cooks 1.8 liters as fast as my old brown jug. So standard.

Not OK is the price. Kettle there from 20 upwards, from well-known brands. This one is just under 50. When I realized this, I tried again to find out whether it might work particularly energy-saving, but that seems not to be the case. So there is in my view no reason to spend so much money on the stove.

I myself will now return to my old Braun, I got used to the easy user guidance and disturb me personally quite on the cumbersome handling of the Russell Hobbs.
