Our Review

The Russell Hobbs Structure Kettle is a stylish modern electric kettle with an elegant textured exterior and stainless steel accents. There are three colour schemes available, namely Black, Grey (pictured) and White. It features an internal blue illumination when boiling which works well with the exterior design.

The Structure Kettle has plenty of useful and convenient modern features. We particularly like the simple yet practical rapid boil zone markers, allowing you to boil the exact amount of water needed. It can boil 1 cup (235ml) in about 45 seconds. There's an up to 65% energy saving to be had when boiling 1 cup as opposed to 1 litre, which soon adds up money-wise. We look at the full list of features later.

About Russell Hobbs

Russell Hobbs are of course the household name of kitchen and cleaning appliances. They sell kettles, toasters, coffee machines, hand mixers, hand blenders, food steamers, deep fryers, and more. They're a global company with a long history and a strong reputation for quality.

We now take a look at the features in more detail:

  • Perfect Pour Spout - The spout is designed in such a way to reduce dripping, resulting in drier work surfaces.
  • Efficient - As mentioned above, the Structure Kettle is efficient with its rapid boil zone markers. It can boil 1 cup (235ml) in 45 seconds. When boiling 1 cup compared to 1 litre, there's an up to 65% saving on energy alone. This kettle is therefore capable of helping you save money in the long term.
  • Illumination - When boiling, the inside of the kettle and the power switch will illuminate blue.
  • Water Window - There's a water window to give you a visual indicator of how much water is inside without having to open it. The gauge marks 3 cups, 4 cups, 6 cups and the 1.7 litre maximum.
  • Lift Off Lid - The lid easily lifts off for filling. Lift off lids are better than hinged lids due to their durability.
  • Base - The kettle has a 360 degree base, meaning it can be positioned facing any angle on that base. The base has a space to store excess electrical cable underneath, therefore resulting in less cluttered worktops.
  • Boil Dry Protection - The kettle will automatically switch itself off if it's boiled with no water inside, or if it boils all of its water away.

Matching Toaster

Russell Hobbs sell two toasters (a two and four slice toaster) which match the kettle's style and design. They're available together with the kettle on

Russell Hobbs Structure Kettle's matching two and four slice toasters.


In summary, the Russell Hobbs Structure Kettle is up to the job. It has an elegant textured design with the choice of black, grey or white. It's a rapid boil kettle which boils efficiently, saving energy due to the rapid boil zone markers. Its design is further enhanced by the interior blue illumination when boiling. Overall, we rate the Structure Kettle 4.5 out of 5 stars.
