The Russell Hobbs 21671-70 Retro Ribbon Jug Kettle is a unique take on a retro themed kettle. Available in black, red and cream, the retro jug kettle will match a wide range of kitchen colour schemes. The retro accents are of particular interest - from the ring lid, to the square handle design.
The kettle's most interesting and unique feature is the temperature gauge on the side of the kettle (pictured above). The gauge itself is an old fashioned type of gauge. Oddly enough, it matches the kettle's design perfectly. I've never seen anything like it before, and it will certainly be a talking point for visitors.
Here's a quick demonstration of the Retro Kettle in use:
We now list in detail the features of the kettle:
The temperature gauge is of an old fashioned design. Not only does it look great, but being able to see exactly what the temperature of the water is will give you an indication of whether the kettle needs reboiling. The temperature scale runs from 0 Degrees Celsius to 100 Degrees Celsius, as pictured below:
As with most kettles, there's a water level indicator, as shown in the below picture:
There's a fine mesh water filter which sits in the kettle's spout. It's removable, washable and therefore reusable. It's design to prevent pieces of limescale and anything else in the water from entering your cup. It also has the side effect of making drinks look more appealing.
The Russell Hobbs brand is well respected and famous across the US, Europe, and other parts of the world. They manufacture kettles, toasters, irons and more.
