Review On Russell Hobbs Kettle

What I like most about my kettle is that it displays the amount of water to boil according to the cups you are going to need. The rear water gauge is the ideal way to boil just the right amount and thereby saving energy.

Choose a Good Brand

I've had this kettle for some time and it's still working daily and saving energy. It is so stylish and pretty as well as practical. In fact everybody that comes over for a cup of coffee comments on it. When it comes to kitchen appliances a good kettle is essential. My juicer is a Russell Hobbs brand as well, and also gives good service.

Kitchen appliances like a kettle need to be durable as well as good to look at. So buying good quality will save you money in the long run.

They produced an electric kettle that would not cause an electric shock and was safe to use. So you see Russell and Hobbs kettles comes a long way.

Cleaning Your Kettle

Limescale is harmless but it could affect the taste of your tea or coffee. Limescale dissolves easily when treated with white distilled vinegar.

  • Use equal parts of white vinegar and tap water.
  • Fill your kettle with three quarters of the mixture.
  • Bring to the boil. Then leave it to cool. Rinse a few times.
  • Then boil water twice in the kettle to remove any taste of the vinegar.
  • You can also leave a glass marble in your kettle permanently to keep the limescale away. As it bounces while the water is boiling it chips away at any limescale.
  • Do not leave water inside your kettle overnight as it might produce limescale.
