Cold because of your username.
Reviews are not the best not sure about these glass kettle i will keep on looking.
We've got one. I hated it from the first moment we had it, but maybe because it's not as nice as our previous "Bush" brand Argos glass kettle that was half the price a few years ago. It did trip our RCD circuit protector twice in the first couple months, which made me deeply distrustful and hate it even more. But to be fair it works, it doesn't taint the water, it boils water, and there's not many other 3KW glass kettles around for the price. I still hate it though. Oh and the save 66% energy idea works on the principle of suggesting you only boil a third of the water you are going to need - genius!

I have a completely opposite opinion. I love mine, it boils water amazingly quickly and people are always surprised how hot the water is also. Have never had any issues with mine.

I'd hate mine even more if it didn't heat the water to boiling temperature.
No problems at all with ours

Love mine, had it for nearly 2 years. I think they come with 2 years manufacturers warranty too.
Russell Hobbs & quality? haha!!
On our 3rd on these now, in six years. The wife loves 'the way it looks' so we have to keep buying a new one when the current one develops a problem. The Problems - #1. It leaks, from the lid when you pour and you'll also constatly find water around the base where it sits to boil. #2. The blue LED's are known to stop working after a while so if that's the main attraction then bear that in mind. #3 We live in a hard water area so be prepared to constantly clean and descale your kettle every few weeks unless you like the black plastic looking tarnished with white limescale marks all over it and the glass looking dirty. It's a kettle at the end of the day that boils water quickly, the problem is the selling point of this specific kettle are it's aesthetics which are diminished almost immediately because of the effect that putting water in it has on it! Also the amount of time you need to invest in trying to keep the kettle looking clean might not be your 'cup of tea', pardon the pun

We have this. It's never put a foot wrong. Best kettle we have had.

No need to "constantly" clean the kettle. As and when needed is fine.

Cars are known to break down yet we still buy them but when a few people report failing LED lights people go full on "Avoid" mode.

I've never had ours leak from the lid when pouring (unless you pretty much tip it over)

I've never seen a single drop of water on the base.
All 3 of ours purchased over a 6 year period have always 'leaked' water to varying levels. I speak from experience having owned three of these exact kettles and purchased from 3 different retailers. Each time a problem has occured I've also spoken to Russell Hobbs who confirmed the issues I reported are already known to them. My comments were meant to be helpful as points to consider before purchasing, not reasosn to "Avoid" buying it. If you've "never seen a single drop of water on the base" then you're either short-sighted or not the person who uses the kettle in your household. "Not a single drop", what a pointless and obviously exagerrated untruthful comment to make.

Ha, of course someone who shares a different experience than yours is short sighted and/or not the person using the kettle.

You're right. Your experience must be the same experience as everyone else's.

I share my thoughts and my experience and I'm called short sighted. Mature.

It's only a kettle, calm down.
Used several different Russell Hobbs products (including a Kettle). Always been polished turds. The products look nice, but underneath that thin veneer of superficial good looks, they're just cheap nasty crap.

And that is Russell Hobbs!
Had mine over two years, never had a problem with it. HOT!
try getting a replacement lid.........
Lids always fail after a year or two. Shame, as the rest of the kettle feels well designed. Almost as if the redundancy was built in...
