The Russell Hobbs Hourglass Kettle is a stylish and practical kettle. It has a carafe-inspired artisanal design with well placed curves, stainless steel details and a closed handle in order to enhance the overall feel. When the kettle is boiling it illuminates blue internally, and also casts a soothing blue light on to your kitchen worktop.
From a practicality perspective, the kettle is very much modern. It has a large 6-7 cup capacity, a pull off lid to facilitate an easy refill and a 360 degree base with integrated cord storage. The heat up time is fast - 1 cup of water (235ml) can be boiled in under 45 seconds. There's an up to 66% energy saving to be had when boiling 1 cup compared to 1 litre of water.
