The Russell Hobbs 20095 Dorchester Kettle is a rapid boil kettle sold by the famous and reputable British based appliance supplier Russell Hobbs. For over 60 years they have been in the appliance industry, selling kettles, toasters, irons, etc.
The Dorchester's key selling point is the fact that it can boil 1-3 cups of tepid water in 45 seconds. It features an "ideal pour" spout design. Essentially this means that pouring it is safe as there is little to no splashing and spillage. It also has a removable filter which goes a long way towards reducing limescale.
So far as style goes, the Dorchester kettle has a standard compact design. The kettle itself sits neatly on its rounded base. The handle is somewhat large, but this has the effect of making the pouring process easer. The design is what many people would expect to see in a modern kitchen.
In terms of colours, there are four options, namely Stainless Steel, Red, Black and Cream. In addition, at the time of writing, there are matching toasters for each of the colours.
We will now take a deeper look into the specifics of the design of the kettle.
The kettle features what is known as a 360 degree base. Essentially this means that the kettle can be placed at any angle, and that there is no need to line the kettle up. This makes for easy usage.
The inside of the kettle contains a simple energy saving feature - an internal cup measuring system. This way you can fill the kettle up with the amount of water you actually require, therefore reducing excess energy.
A removable filter sits inside the spout. This can be popped in and out as required for cleaning. Its primary purpose is to catch limescale and any other possible surprises lurking in the water.
In additon, the kettle also has the following:
You will receive the kettle, the base and an instruction booklet all together in one box:
To summarise, the Dorchester 20095 kettle by Russell Hobbs is a great addition to the kitchen. It's particularly useful if you're also looking for a new toaster as Russell Hobbs has a matching one.
