Our Review

The Russell Hobbs 20441 Snowdon Kettle is a modern kettle designed for the modern kitchen. Its main selling point is its perfect pour spout - the shape of the spout is such that the water flow is streamlined, making spills and splashes less likely. As you would expect, the Snowdon Kettle has the usual features contemporary kettles have.

About Russell Hobbs

The Snowdon Kettle is by Russell Hobbs, who are renowned for their innovative and wide ranging kettles designs, as well as household appliances in general. They've been designing household appliances since the 1950s, so they certainly know what they're doing.


In more detail, the kettle has the following features:

  • Capacity - 1.7 Litres. Most Russell Hobbs kettles have this capacity.
  • Dimensions - 16.5cm x 25.0cm x 21.8cm.
  • Wattage - 3000W.
  • Fast Boil - 1 cup (235ml) is boiled in around 45 seconds. Great for if you need that last cup of tea before work.
  • Water Filter - The kettle has a removable and washable filter. The filter is designed to catch limescale, as well as other large particles in the water.
  • Concealed Heating Element - The heating element is concealed, making the inside of the kettle look more appealing, and also making it easier to clean.
  • Rapid Boil Zone - There are 1/2/3 cup markers inside the kettle. These allow you to measure out the exact amount of water you need. This has two positive results. Firstly, the kettle boils quicker. Secondly, the shorter boiling time means that the kettle isn't wasting energy, so your electricity bill will be lower.

Push Button Lid

The push button lid which sits on the top of the handle makes the kettle quick and easy to fill. The lid is made out of metal and black plastic. It's pictured here:

Water Gauge

The exterior of the kettle has a water window. Indicated on the water window is the water level for 2 cups, 4 cups, 6 cups and the maximum capacity of 1.7 litres. See below:

Illuminating On Switch

When switched on, the on/off switch lights up to indicate that the kettle is boiling:

360 Degree Base

The kettle has a so called 360 degree base. This means that the kettle can be placed on it so that it faces any direction. This is convenient, particularly if the kettle is used by both left handed and right handed people. Furthermore, the base can store the cord. The base is as below:

Overall, the Russell Hobbs 20441 Snowdon Kettle is a strong choice of kettle. As mentioned, its highlight is the perfect pour spout design, which reduces splashing and spilling, therefore keeping your work surfaces dry. The brushed stainless steel finish also features high up on the list in my opinion. These features, together with the usual features of modern kettles, make the Snowdon Kettle an excellent choice for the home or office. It would definitely suit both modern and traditional homes in my view.
