The Russell Hobbs 23601 Henley Kettle is a great choice of kettle. Packed with features expected from modern kettles, the Henley Kettle does not disappoint. With a stylish finish and smart black accents, the kettle is perfect for a modern kitchen.

Style and Design

The kettle is available in four colours, namely silver, cream, red and black. With all four designs, the spout, base and parts of the lid are stainless steel. The handle and "grip" part of the lid is made from black plastic. The body of the kettle is fairly compact and will not clutter your worktop.


We list below more of the features:

  • Capacity - 1.7 Litres. Most similar Russell Hobbs kettles have this volume.
  • Rapid Boil - The Henley Kettle is designed to rapidly boil, allowing you to have that final cup of tea just before work.
  • Colours - As mentioned above, the kettle is available in silver, cream, red and black.
  • Concealed Heating Element - The heating element is concealed in the bottom of the kettle. This is not only safer, but allows for the inside to be easily cleaned.
  • Water Gauge - The kettle features a water gauge to show you how much water is inside.
  • Cord Storage - The cord can be stored in the underside of the base.
  • Hinged Lid - The lid is ergonomically designed to allow for easy opening and filling.

Boiling Indicator

There's a neon indicator in the on/off switch to indicate whether the kettle is boiling:

Removable and Washable Filter

There's a water filter which sits inside the spout. It's designed to reduce limescale and other small bits which may be present inside the water. It can easily be removed and washed as demonstrated in the below picture:

360 Degree Base

The base is a 360 degree base meaning the kettle can sit facing any direction on it. Furthermore, the base can store excess cord underneath it.

Overall, the Henley Polished Steel Kettle is a well constructed and modest kettle. It definitely suits a modern kitchen. Its sleek and compact design is a particular highlight. On top of this, the kettle is full of features expected from newer kettles. The rapid boil facility gives the kettle its fast boiling speed. Overall a great little kettle. Definitely easy for us to recommend.
