With several different models that range in price from around $50 to $110, the Russell Hobbs electric kettle selection includes both cordless and corded varieties. While corded models feature a power cord attached directly to the kettle, cordless models are unencumbered, as the cord attaches to the base. Cordless models also feature 360-degree contact ability, meaning the kettle may be set atop the base from any angle. Crafted out of stylish 18/10 stainless steel or heat-resistant polypropylene, Russell Hobbs kettles are some of the most attractive and versatile available.
Capacity and Power
Russell Hobbs electric kettles feature a range of different capacities. Kettles range in size from about 1.0 to 1.8 liters, while there are 1.75 and 2-quart models available as well. Heating water for tea, coffee, cocoa, select desserts or other meals much faster than a microwave or a stovetop, Russell Hobbs kettles feature a 1,500-Watt heating element hidden smartly within the base of each unit.
Some of the features found on Russell Hobbs electric kettles include an anti-scale filter to prevent mineral buildup, stay-cool handle, a convenient viewing window so one knows how much water is left, and a sealable lid. An on/off switch, power-on indicator light and easy pour spout are other helpful design characteristics.
