Matches other items from the range-expensive but looks great.

sometimes it doesnt switch itself off so water splashes up-will keep an eye on it and return if it happens again. Because the kettle is clear you can see build on the base which could be a pain to remove.

It looks good

Does not keep the coffee warm. Water tank leaks from valve when filling. If you like strong coffee the filter does not hold enough and it blocks the in coming 'hot' water if you do. Cleaning, well you can't as gains get trapped everywhere.

Look nice when brand new

Too small, cut off too soon, poor shaped jug means dripping, difficult to clean filter, doesn't keep coffee hot enough, very poor value for money

Russell Hobbs 12591


The best point about the product is the timer setting. Secondly the design very modern & not too bulky.

Lots of parts to take off to clean. Scatches easily if not careful.
