Lots of kettles/domestic appliances reduces in store. Bought this and a Kenwood food processor. Both marked as 50% off. Kettle is £5 lower than cheapest ever Amazon price according to the 3 camels site. Our kids love that it lights up but yes... £30 is possibly a bit much for a kettle in the sales!!
This model currently £40 on Amazon

I think Salter have one in Robert Dyas for 10 cheaper. Would take them over Russell Hobbs
Have had mine over a year and love it. Boils water really quickly and looks great. Definitely requires a bit more descaling then your regular kettle as it's all glass, though that only takes a few minutes every 6 months or so depending on how hard your water is.

This kettle is the worst. You can see the calcium buildup after the 1st boil.
really like mine... but you get verrry retentive with only boiling what you need, what with being able to see it all fully. probably saved me the cost of the kettle in over-filling.

only thing that bothered me at first was the amount of water that appeared on the pad on use... RH said it's condensation or somesuch and the instructions do point out that it's normal... just is a bit off-putting wondering whether you're going to do a james bond on yourself for using it. but, two years on and still standing!

thought it needed less descaling as the calcium doesn't build up on the glass...

if you like a light show before every brew then switch it on and the kitchen lights off... will keep you amused for a while... it's like a psychedelic oil wheel, but with water.

i'd recommend it.

The water on the pad is from the mechanism it uses (steam) to turn the water off automatically once boiled coming out the bottom and condensing on the pad.
Wow. Got to be worth the extra 20 for the glowing lights...
I bought one of these years ago and returned it after a day. It looks a bit naff. When the kettle is off all you can see is condensation.

yes, so they said. just never really understood why this kettle would use this process when no other kettle does, to the same effect. strikes me as an odd choice to design a solution that looks like a fault (and it IS a design faux pas to allow condensation to appear on the pad that holds the electrical connection, when i assume all the other kettles funnel it back into the kettle?)

as i said, still standing and not fussed now. but, for the new owner, it does become a concern until it isn't!
Beware if you have a parent with poor eyesight. The amount required for 1-2 cups looks deceptively little in the kettle, so my father was constantly overfilling this style of kettle because he couldn't see the lines on the side.

Had to get him to start using a measuring cup to fill it, as I demonstrated he was wasting at least £100 a year on their electric bill.

Saving of £100 on electricity on the boiling of the kettle alone? From a quick google, the average cost of boiling a full kettle costs 2.5p per boil. So based on that, you’ve saved him the equivalent of boiling 4000 full kettles?

Now i like a tea. But thats taking the biscuit
