Our Review

The Russell Hobbs 23211 Luna Quiet Boil Kettle is a kitchen must have. Its rapid boil technology combined with its ability to boil small quantities of water means it not only provides boiled water in a timely manner, but it also saves up to 66% energy when boiling 1 cup compared to 1 litre.

In addition to saving energy, it also features many of the standard features people have come to expect from modern kettles in recent years. For example, boil dry protection in case the kettle is turned on without water, or the water is left by mistake and boils away. It also has a removable and washable water filter meaning there is some defence against limescale and natural metals present in hard water.

This kettle is designed by the household name Russell Hobbs. They manufacture not only kettles, but many other household appliances, e.g. toasters, bread makers, electric shavers, irons, etc.

Style

Design

From a design point of view, the kettle is certainly well constructed. The style is more subjective of course, but in my view the 23211 Luna Kettle looks smart. It's a fairly compact modern style kettle which is sleek in its appearance and would go well together with other modern appliances. It would certainly be suitable style wise for most kitchens.

Colours

The Luna kettle is available in three colours -- moonlight grey, red and copper. Moonlight grey is shown above. Both red and copper are shown below. For more pictures, check out amazon.co.uk.

Specification

We will now look into the specific features of the 23211 Luna:

  • Capacity - Its maximum capacity is 1.7 Litres, or around 7 cups. About average for a kettle.
  • Dimensions - Its approximate size is 22.5cm x 15.8cm x 24.5cm.
  • Rapid Boil Zone - Utilising modern rapid boil technology, it can boil 1 cup (around about 235ml) in 45 seconds.
  • Cup Counting - Comes with cup markings, allowing for cups to be counted, and therefore allows you to easily save energy. A few £ off your energy bills is always a plus.
  • Boil Dry Protection - In case the water evaporates or the kettle is boiled empty by mistake, the boil dry protection will turn off the power and stop the kettle from being damaged or turning into a fire hazard.
  • Power Light Indicator - When the kettle is switched on, a power light turns on to indicate that boiling is in process.
  • Concealed Heating Element - The heating element is concealed in the base to allow for easy cleaning.
  • Dynamic Filter - The kettle contains a removable, washable filter designed to reduce problems with limescale.
  • Ideal Water Spout - The spout is designed to pour water efficiently and minimise dripping and splash back.
  • Push Button Lid Opener - The lid is opened by a simple push button mechanism, allowing for easy filling.
  • Energy Saving - Boiling water can contribute significantly towards our energy bills. By boiling 1 cup at a time, this kettle yields a 66% saving on energy when compared to the usual 1 litre boiled.

Cleaning

Cleaning the kettle is straightforward. As the heating element is concealed within the base, a quick rinse is usually enough to remove any limescale which has built up inside the kettle. The filter is removable and as such can be rinsed under the tap in no time at all.

Summary

In summary, the Russell Hobbs 23211 Luna Quiet Boil Kettle is a great addition to the kitchen. It's brimming with features such as energy saving measures, rapid boil technology and an extremely useful filter. It pairs together perfectly with the matching 2-slice toaster. Definitely would recommend for the home or office.
