The Russell Hobbs 24361 Inspire Electric Kettle is a unique take on the modern kettle. Featuring a completely removable lid as well as a stylish outer pattern, this kettle is a glamorous addition to the kitchen. It is also a performance oriented kettle - it can boil 1 cup (approximately 235ml) in 45 seconds. Therefore it's perfect if you're in a rush before work and desperately need a quick cup of tea.
As well as its interesting textured horizontal stripe design, it sports a smart glossy black finish. There is also the option of having the kettle in red, grey, cream or white. The Inspire Kettle has a number of chrome accents on it - the handle, the lid ring and the on switch most notably. There's also a chrome band around its circumference. In my opinion, the chrome band matches the red glossy kettle the best, followed closely by the black.
The fully removable lid is an interesting feature as most modern kettles have hinged lids. Not only is this convenient for filling, it's also extremely handy for cleaning the interior.
Another stand out feature of this kettle is the fact that the handle does not form a complete loop. This has the effect of making the water level indicator much easier to read.
The rapid boil zone inside of the kettle allows you to measure 1, 2 or 3 cups exactly, therefore allowing you to boil only what you need. This has the effect of faster boil times, and it also saves energy as the kettle is not boiling unnecessarily.
The spout contains a removable and washable filter (pictured below). The filter is primarily for catching limescale, but it's also capable of trapping impurities in the water.
There's a video available on the amazon.co.uk website showing off the kettle's features.
Russell Hobbs also sell a coffee maker, a 2-slice toaster and a 4-slice toaster with the same textured design. These are available on amazon.co.uk together with the kettle (at the time of writing). Here's a quick look at each item:
In summary, the 24361 Inspire Electric Kettle certainly stands up to scrutiny. Its interesting textured design makes a strong fashion statement. Its other features such as the rapid boil zone also make it an attractive buy.What do you receive?
