Russell Hobbs Luna Kettle

Next up is the Russell Hobbs Luna Kettle. It's a tall and stylish kettle which provides a quiet boil. It was found by Russell Hobbs to be up to 70% quieter when tested against other Russell Hobbs kettles without the quiet boil technology. The Luna Kettle has another trick up its sleeve in the sense that it's also an energy saving kettle. More specifically, when boiling 1 cup of water (235ml) instead of 1 litre, there's an up to 66% energy saving.

Our next quiet boil kettle is the 1.7 litre Duronic EK42 Kettle. It's a variable temperature kettle, with four pre-set temperatures - 40C, 60C, 80C and 100C.

The Duronic EK42 also has the ability to keep the boiled water up to temperature for up to 30 minutes at a time.

There's also a slightly smaller version available with a lower capacity of 1.5 litres. The Duronic EK42 is also energy saving as the temperature settings will reduce excess boiling.
