The Canterbury Kettle is by Russell Hobbs, the famous home appliance company. They're renowned for their quality products and the fact that they've been around since the 1950s demonstrates their calibre.


The kettle is available in four colours - polished stainless steel, silver, red and black. You can therefore match the kettle to your kitchen.

To enhance the visuals, the kettle has a stainless steel spout and plastic on/off switch. The on/off switch illuminates red when the kettle is boiling, which is also a nice touch:

  • Capacity - 1.7 Litres which is approximately 6-7 cups worth. Great for boiling water for cooking.
  • Integrated Cord Storage - The cord can be stored inside the base to keep your kitchen neat and tidy.
  • Illuminated On/Off Switch - As mentioned above, the on/off switch lights up red when the kettle is on.
  • Concealed Heating Element - Makes the kettle easy to clean. The interior can be easily wiped and de-scaled.
  • Hinged Lid - The lid is hinged and is opened by a button on the top of the handle. It's conveniently placed so that you can hold the kettle and open the lid with one hand.

Water Filter

The kettle has a water filter which can be removed, washed and reused as required. The filter removes impurities in the water, in particular, limescale. The filter also helps to increase the kettle's life:
