The Textures Kettle is from Russell Hobbs. Their reputation is strong, due to their top tier household appliances. These range from kettles and toasters to irons and space heaters. With the Textures Kettle, they've certainly reinforced this reputation.


The Textures Kettle is available in three colours, namely White, Grey and Black. Each of these have the glossy finish and matt accents.


Some of the features are as follows:

  • Capacity - 1.7 Litres (or around 6 cups). Standard for the majority of Russell Hobbs kettles. It can boil a minimum of one cup.
  • Dimensions - 21.0cm x 15.8cm x 23.8cm.
  • Colours - White / Black / Grey.
  • Dual Water Windows - There are water windows on both sides of the kettle. This is perfect if the kettle is going to be used by both left handed and right handed people as regardless of whether the kettle is facing left or right, you will be able to see how much water is inside.
  • Energy Class Rating - A.
  • Energy Efficiency - Saves up to 70% energy when boiling 1 cup (235ml) as opposed to 1 litre.
  • Easy to Clean - The concealed heating element makes the interior easy to clean and de-scale.
  • Integrated Cord Storage - The base has integrated cord storage, if needed.

Water Filter

As with almost all modern kettles, there's a filter in the spout. This filter is designed to prevent limescale and other large pieces of unwanted material from entering the cup. The filter is removable, washable and reusable.

Rapid Boil Zone

There are 1/2/3 cup markers on the inside of the kettle, as pictured below. These help you measure out the exact amount of water you need, so the water boils quicker, saving energy in the process.

Ideal Pour Spout

The spout is designed so that when the kettle is poured, dribbles, splashes and spillages are reduced. This will keep your worktops dry and clean.

Matching Toaster Bundle

There are two toasters which match the kettle's design - a 2 slice toaster and a 4 slice toaster. The kettle with the 2 slice toaster is pictured below:
