To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Here's what Amazon's website says about this kettle: "The Russell Hobbs York Kettle is a highly functional addition to your kitchen that allows you to brew your favorite tea and coffee to perfection. With five variable temperatures and a keep warm function, the Russell Hobbs York Kettle will allow you to enjoy the perfect cuppa any time of the day." The only problem is this kettle doesn't have variable temperature settings. We was conned through a false description. Very unhappy.
Nice kettle, very neat and pretty and does pour well. It's pretty loud. The image above makes it look like there's a slight blue tint to the kettle, but this is not the case. It is standard stainless steel.
Nothing remarkable - but that's a good thing. Easy to turn on, easy to see if it *is* on, and no annoying beeps or delays. Boils quickly and quietly (or as quietly as can be expected), and pours well. After many years of using a deeply annoying (and expensive) "smart" kettle, this has been a delight.
Great kettle, only feedback is I would have preferred the water indicator to be made of glass rather than of plastic. However all else is great and Amazon delivered it very promptly. Why bother going to a department store?
