The Russell Hobbs 24191 Compact Glass Kettle is a premium kettle. It's a small, compact kettle, perfect for small or cluttered kitchens. Its main feature is the fact that the boiling chamber is made from clear glass, allowing you to watch the water boil.
The kettle also has many of the features which people have come to expect from modern kettles, including a 360 degree base, a push button lid and the energy savings it produces.
The kettle achieves its compactness by being slimmer rather than shorter. In fact, it's around 30% smaller than the Russell Hobbs 21600-10.
In terms of style, the majority of the exterior is coated in brushed stainless steel. Components such as the handle, the lid button and the switch are made from black plastic. For added effect, there's a strip of light around the bottom of the kettle which lights up blue when the kettle is boiling.
Russell Hobbs famously sell household appliances. In addition to kettles, they also sell toasters, electric hobs, irons, juicers, vacuum cleaners and space heaters. They're a reputable, reliable and trustworthy brand, who have been around since the 1950s.
The kettle can be placed at any position on its 360 degree base. As a bonus, the cord can be stored underneath the base. The base is pictured here:
The water level is marked on the outside of the glass. The markings are 0.25L, 0.5L and 0.8L, as shown below:
As with many Russell Hobbs products, there's also a matching toaster. Here's a picture of the two of them together:
You will receive a single box which contains both the kettle and an instruction booklet:
Overall, we would recommend the Russell Hobbs 24191 Compact Glass Kettle. Its two key selling points are its compactness and the clear glass, both of which are perfectly implemented. In addition, features such as the 360 degree base, the energy saving measures and the dynamic water filter make the 24191 Kettle perfect for the modern day home.
