The Russell Hobbs 21888 Legacy Quiet Boil Electric Kettle is a modern take on a classic kettle. Its design is based on the original Russell Hobbs K1 kettle, but its functionality draws from the best modern kettles have to offer.
Featuring quiet boil technology, the kettle is up to 70% quieter when tested against other Russell Hobbs kettles without the technology. It also features rapid boil technology - 1 cup (235ml) can be boiled in 45 seconds.
Russell Hobbs have sold household appliances, and in particular kitchen appliances since the 1950s. They're universally known and are most certainly a very reputable brand.
The Legacy Kettle's design is inspired by the original 1955 K1 kettle, although its triangular pyramid shape with large circle handle over the top makes it look somewhat futuristic.
It also features a completely removable lid. This is in stark contrast to modern hinged lids.
If cream isn't to your liking, then you have the choice of black or red.
The Legacy Kettle has the following main features:
The kettle comes with a removable and washable filter which sits inside the spout. This filter removes impurities in the water such as limescale. It also improves the look of your tea and coffee.
The water level can be gauged through a small water window on the back of the kettle:
The measurements are shown in the below image:
There's a short video on amazon.co.uk, demonstrating some of the features of the Legacy Kettle.
As with many Russell Hobbs kettles, there's also a matching four slice toaster. At the time of writing, the two are available on amazon.co.uk.
When purchased, you will receive the following box which contains the kettle as well as an instruction booklet:
In summary, the Russell Hobbs 21888 Legacy Quiet Boil Electric Kettle is a fantastic blend on traditional style with modern features. Its two most notable features are of course the quietness of the boiling, and the speediness of the boil.
