Anyone had a glass kettle / this model with any feedback please? Thanks in advance

Got a similar one from ASDA George range and I have no complaints, people speak of they can see condensation on the inside however with the laws of physics that happens in any kettle, the only difference is you can’t see it.

HOT from me no pun intended.

Got a Russell Hobbs glass kettle. Looks lovely when clean but after a weeks use the limescale starts to build up and it needs cleaning. However we live in a fairly hard water area.

I bought same one from lidl. I don't have any problems.

eerily similar to the Russell Hobbs original design, one such I had and it's lid broke off after just 10 months of exceedingly careful use!
I always used mine carefully especially after finding out that this was a weak point due to a basic design flaw.
The later design with a cylindrical body which I have now, has just passed the 10 month milestone and still has it's lid!!
If considering the Aldi one, I would advise care with the opening and closing oft the lid, and to be sure to keep your receipt based solely on the strong resemblance to the RH early model!
That said, it's an attractive kettle and a brilliant price!
Heat!


This was my Russell Hobbs one, see how similar they are?

Not if you leave it in the box it won't

One advantage of a glass kettle is that you can see the build up of limescale.

I use a couple of squirts of toilet cleaner to clean it.

WTF? You put bleach and chemical based toilet cleaners into a kettle? Are you mad??

Not all toilet cleaners are bleach based. Acid based ones do remove limescale extremely well, although nothing wrong with using lemon juice in a kettle

I wouldn't use anything that toxic to clean something that will contain drinking water. White vinegar either neat or 50/50 with water will clean it perfectly with no risk of contaminating the water with something nasty. White vinegar is also very cheap, I think 19p out of Audi for a bottle.

No no all you do to get rid of limescale is buy a bottle of coke give it 2 boils and EUREKA! Limescale gone!

Yes, got this a glass kettle from Aldi when it was on sale in the autumn of 2014. It is still going strong, no leakages or complaints. Much better than the Russell Hobbs glass kettle. I am going to buy this as a back up, for when then current one breaks.

Harpic limescale remover, I've always used it.

I'm still alive.

Steradent tablets... great limescale remover and safe

Hi All, I Bought this same style kettle in Lidl last year £19.99 have had no problems with it am in hard water area so put one of those wire round things in it so every time you boil your water it collects the scale and I just wash the kettle and metal thingy out each day under running water then refil my kettle and have had no problems with it.

Great bit of info thanks. I too have the Russel Hobs and the lid has broken! What does your current model look like then if this issue has been fixed?

I bought the original from Amazon and they were as always brilliant about refunding and more essentially FOC return!
Russell Hobbs on the other hand didn't want to know regarding "customer service", just passed the buck to Amazon.
The second one I bought from Argos (I had a £5 voucher about to expire!) Just checking how long it's been in service, and it was first plugged in 2nd Jan 2017, so around the same age as when the first one lost its lid!

If I was buying at the moment and had not had the RH version, I would defo buy the Aldi one as their refund and guarantee policy is also reliable.

Ok cool, so this new one you think has a more solid design to it?

Certainly gives more confidence, still the hinge is relatively "puny" as there is not really much room to beef it up.
I'm pleased with mine on the understanding that I expect it to "outlast" the 3 year extended RH warranty!
As I said before,if I were buying a glass kettle from scratch, I would certainly buy the Aldi one rather than the RH current one.
I cannot imagine that Aldi would have been unaware of the endemic problem with the original RH design (which this seems to be) without having attended to this design fault, at worst, you'll be getting an unquestioned refund next August and at best you'll have a smart Kettle for half the price of the RH one!!
I'm half inclined to salt one away myself, but who needs two kettles?

Don't waste your time, i purchased 2 of them, one lasted 3 months and the other just over 6. Looks really nice and worked well but both all went faulty with the plastic lids breaking apart. Store was good though and gave me my money back each time.

We must be gentler on kettles than you lot!, have a RH Glass kettle for over 3 yrs, lid is ok & kettle working fine. The only comment I have is that with a glass kettle you want to keep it descaled, as it shows. Not a bad thing to be doing though.

If you get a plastic taste to the water just clean it with bicarb of soda and there fine

I have this exact kettle. Its great. Well worth £20.

That's the argument that smokers use to continue smoking...

Had my glass Bertelin kettle for nearly 5yrs now.
No leaks but you have to be extra careful in case you drop it.

Strange thing, the lights stopped working about 3months ago.
Two days ago, I went to make a cup of coffee and now the lights are working again.

It's due for another clean. I had a water filter but the refills are expensive, like lazer toner or printer ink.

Anyone buying this today do me a favour please, tell me if it wobbles on its base. The one I got is proper wobbly! Think it's going back for an exchange. Thanks.

Boils water quickly.

Is the offer still valid?
