It was a great kettle but .............
It was a great kettle but started falling apart 1 month after warranty stopped...2 years. Thought I would have longer life span than this. The product worked fast and no issues with operation but build quality not up to scratch.
Purchased in July 2018 at Goodguys for A$67.00.
Only lasted 1.5 years and no stopped working for no apparent reason
This was a great kettle until it died 1.5 years in with no fault of ours. We were satisfied with everything about the kettle but disappointed in its life span.
Good but not quite robust enough
This is a neat and effective kettle, but after a few months' use the little plastic on/off lever at the base snapped off. I can still trigger the switch using my fingernail.
Purchased in June 2019 for A$54.00.
More show than go
Sounds like an airplane in my kitchen. Wall hot to touch no insulation
Had whisper quiet Russell jobs before ... not nearly as good
Can't see the full line properly
The best kettle I ever had! Super quite!
First time took a risk and bought a different brand. Glad I did! Kettle is super quite, cant believe I didn't discover it earlier... Got a toaster as well.
The pair is looking very smart in my kitchen :)
Happy, peaceful boiling!
Bought this kettle specially for it's "quiet boil technology" but it's so noisy I'm thinking of ditching it after only a few months of use. Boils relatively quickly so fills that purpose, but definitely not the quiet noise level. Would not recommend.
Purchased in August 2019 for A$89.99.
Quiet as a mouse
Just bought this and impressed with the quietness of the boil. Pour spout is nice and smooth and lid opens well. Only downside was the cord was a little shorter than my old kettle, not a huge deal though. 5 stars
Good kettle poor lid
I was satisfied with the kettle until the lid would not open after three months of use. On inspection found one of the lid hinge pins had broken off and dropped inside. The kettle was not subject to anything other than normal use. Faulty lid hinges appear to be a very common problem on kettles of other brands also. In this case the pin was plastic and only about 2mm diameter - in other words poor quality. Quality of product basic engineering and manufacture does not seem to be a consideration in most reviews - it should be if you want the product to last.
Fast, quiet, easy to use
Very impressed with the thoughtful design and efficiency of this kettle. Water gauge is clearly visible, blue light shows it's working, amazingly quiet - and it's fast! Plus it looks great!

This kettle is really quiet!
Had been looking for a kettle that wasn't as loud as the last couple that we had, where you basically needed to shut down all activities in the living room while the kettle was boiling in the kitchen.
Despite the odd negative review, I took a punt on this kettle. Glad I did, it exceeded expectations.
The first time I tried it, the loudest noise in the kitchen was the cat's collar clanking on the water bowl while it had a drink. And the loudest noise from the kettle was the click at the end when it turned off.

Super quiet excellent kettle
We read various reviews and had difficulty finding a kettle that was actually as quiet as advertised as well as reliable. This kettle is quiet! I can listen to the TV in our open plan home next to the kettle as it boils without having to turn the volume up. I would not normally write a review after just two weeks but we are so delighted after the previous falsely advertised kettle that sounded like the space shuttle on take off. This is an attractive kettle which we are thoroughly delighted with. Russell Hobbs should advertise its quietness more prominently.
