Not all kettles are the same. Smart kitchens deserve a smart kettle and the Hampshire design from Russell Hobbs is both easy on the eye and great value. It is a metal kettle in a classic style that will sit easily on any kitchen work surface. Its features include a rapid boil zone to heat up water in 45 seconds. It has an easy pour spout to prevent water spilling everywhere when you are serving drinks and a level indicator to avoid over-filling or boiling the kettle when it's empty. The lid has a hinge so you can just pop it open with your thumb as you hold it under the tap to fill it up. And it'll take 1.7 litres so it's capable of making several hot beverages in one go. With a filter that's easy to pop out and clean, there's no danger of lime scale build up spoiling your cuppa. Just take it out every few weeks, rinse it under the tap and slot it back into its place near the spout. The Hampshire is a reliable appliance that will suit every home and every pocket so if you need a new kettle, the Hampshire is a great choice.
