Does this kettle light up blue, can I use smart plug to switch it on and off
Lights up blue when boiling but don't know whether you can use a smart plug. I wouldn't recommend it as it doesn't pour very well... you end up with water running down the body of the kettle creating puddles on the worktop.

Have this model and it pours fine. Did you return yours, as faulty? No kettle should do what you just described

Yes, it lights up blue. Don't know enough about smart plugs to advise you either way, sorry.

Good to hear, maybe we just had a bad one. Didn't bother returning it, just brought a new one. I also got fed up waiting for the water to filter through on every refill, which was often as the kettle doesn't hold much water. I live in a hard water area and the filter significantly improved the taste of teas/coffees which was its plus point.

One should keep receipts and get refunds when things don't appear to work properly, why should the consumer ( you ) be left out of pocket? Also, leaving reviews helps others when deciding on a purchase, did you leave yours when you found you weren't happy?

The water tank/filter bit holds half a litre, the boil water bit holds one litre. Just in case anyone is wondering..

Got this one a couple of years ago, the lid's not water tight so condensation leaks to the base. Blew fuses in my house a few times and that was a replacement. Worse Britta kettle I ever owned.

Yes it lights up, but I doubt smart plug would work on a kettle unless you taped the kettle boil switch down.

you answered you own question there..... it takes a while for the water to filter through, if you fill it and boil, it will boil before the water has filter has filtered through, so when you pour it's water coming out of the fill pot ... plus if you use none brita filter some water stays in thew fill pot regardless and you get this problem...
Low capacity is a pain the the ar,se.................
Plastic kettle, plastic taste in mouth. Buy 3000w glass kettle instead.

Not at all. Have this model & it doesn't have any taste of plastic, quite the opposite due to the Brita filta, you get a good quality drink. Thanks @sam_of_london
Makes tea taste much nicer in our opinion. Ours went wrong after about 18 months (wouldn’t switch off boiling). Contacted Russell Hobbs and they sent us a replacement straight away.

Yes! It's condensation. Not spillage from pouring. The condensation sets into a solid limescale ring on the worktop.

Sounds safe.
Think it's best to get a separate filter jug and kettle, then you can use the filter jug to filter water for other things easily.

Probably because they bombard you to review it just after you've purchased it?
Voted hot

Should be steaming or boiling

That's what we did as the small water capacity was driving us up the wall.
Bought a 1.7l glass kettle and a large brita filter jug. All works well apart from lazy members of the household that can't be bothered to reach for the jug so fill the kettle from the tap - instant limescale in the bottom of the kettle which looks ugly even after one fill.
Tip. If you have hard water, avoid glass kettles unless you want to descale it very, very often.
Thank you been on the lookout for a new kettle
Every Russel hobbs kettle I've had has leaked, poured badly, steamed through the handle or blown. I don't recommended them.
Do Brita filters even remove anything harmful / useful?
Yes the capacity on this is an issue. Overfill it and tap water goes through the overflow so after a while you still need to descale it.

I live in a hard water area, and swear by brita filtering all of the water I use in a kettle.

Yeah, so do I. Unfortunately there are others in the household that can't be bothered to fill the kettle from the jug and then top up the jug from the tap - far easier for them to just fill the kettle from the tap and start off the limescale fight.

Have two of the same one, keep one in the cupboard and only take it out when you have guests over!

Do Brita filters even remove anything harmful / useful?



According to Brita's website, the filters supposedlyremove thirteen chemicals found in tap water. How it works: The filters work by extracting the harsh chemicals found in the water. As the molecules pass through the filter, they cling to the surface area due to the help of the carbon that is found within thefilters.

If you're not interested in all the bells and whistles like rapid boil and water filters, I bought this similar looking one on eBay a month ago for a tenner less. Lights up, easy pop up lid, simple on off switch. Surprisingly quiet when it first fires up. 2 mug fulls bring it up to the minimum mark to save on water and electricity. Does the job.
