Russell Hobs kettle
This kettle is not as quiet as I would have hoped also even though it boils in normal time span after the auto cut off the water doesn’t seem to be as hot as it really should be.

Great addition to kitchen
Was looking for something to match my air fryer with rose gold accents and this matches perfectly. Love that it’s glass + LED light so you can see the progress. Plus it’s very quiet. Very happy with it

Not so quiet
Looked everywhere for a quiet kettle and thought this was it. Sadly after about a month it’s as noisy as any other. Disappointed!
I don’t think there is such a thing as a quiet kettle

Brillant - super quiet
Amazing how quiet this kettle is. I can still hear a conversation while the kettle is on. I particularly love the pouring spout, it is very accurate & doesn't splash everywhere

Great Kettle, very quiet and quick boil. Very happy. It was everything it was quoted as being. We were sick and tired of having a kettle that drowned everything out.
After reading favourable reports on this Kettle I decided to purchase it on the claims that it had Quiet Boil
features. I have had many other Kettles, cheap ones and medium priced ones and they are all quite noisy so I had expected this one to be quieter than others, sadly it is no better, it is loud so don't waste your money on it. Better off with a $15 one.

I agree with previous reviews regarding noise. We were so pleased initially, it was so quiet but that lasted only a month at the most. Now it is noisier than the one we replaced. Very disappointing. We took it back to the shop but they insisted it was quiet!!!

have only had this kettle for a few days and it is so quiet. Was on the hunt for a quietish kettle since ours was so loud you couldnt hear the tv and could hear it boil from upstairs. After much searching and research found this was supposed to be the quietest. Wasnt sure what to expect or believe but so far its a dream! cant believe how quiet it is - looks fancy too. lets hope it stays quiet
Howls like a Dog
We have only had the kettle just over a week when boiling from cold it starts to make a howling sound but is okay when warm water is in it

It was quiet initially and progressively got louder over the next few months. I was offered a replacement and even this did the same thing so I decided to return it.

Kettle is nice - matching toaster is horrible
Ordered online through a rewards program. Good value for our points. We were willing to take a punt because our previous Russell Hobbs kettle lasted nearly 10 years. This one is very quiet - but feels cheap and plastic. It looks very nice new, but interested to see if that lasts.
Came with a matching toaster. Which I hate. Our previous toaster was also a match to our kettle and still going strong. This toaster - frustrated. Feels cheap and light. Quite a bit of force is required to lock down the levers. Our toast (standard white or w...hole meal bread) is starting to burn at setting 2 1/2, so I’ve no idea I what circumstances you would use setting 6? The “I want to start a house fire” setting? The toast cooks very very quickly. At first I thought that was a positive, but if you’ve got a thicker slice of bread it comes out soft in the middle, which is not how I like my toast. For standard or thin slices, the speed is noteworthy. The other feature I do like is that you can control the left and right sides independently. Our former toaster allowed independent operation of the left hand pair of slots, but the right pair were connected with the left. So you either cooked two slices the same, or four slices the same. Here, I can have the two sides cooking at different rates. Overall, I wouldn’t be buying for this feature though. Final analysis: I’m happy enough with the kettle for value and price. It looks tidy too. But give the matching toaster a miss.

Very disappointing -NOT quiet...
Initially the kettle was very quiet and we were impressed, however 2 months later it is the same as any other kettle when it boils...NOISY. So much for the quiet boil technology!

Quiet kettle. First one was faulty and rocked on the base. Returned easily. This one rocks a bit less, but still does a little bit at the end. It is easy to use and refill.

Quietest kettle we have ever owned
After decades of kettles so noisy that conversation had to cease finally took the plunge and reviewed "quiet boiling kettles". Couldn't be happier, after 3 weeks use this kettle is still quiet. Only con is don't put your hand at the top of the handle when you pick it up as the steam from the spout as you pour the water out is extremely hot.
Questions & Answers
I have just purchased this kettle and followed the instructions filling it up 3 times and boiling discarding the water. The inside of the Jug has a metallic smell and the water tastes horrible. What can I do about it?
We have used the kettle several times but we continue to get a strong metallic taste with our tea. Is there anything we can do?
