Overview

The Russell Hobbs 20460 Buckingham Kettle with quiet boil technology is so quiet, once you’ve used it you’ll want to shout about it. A special coating on the base plate works with a diffuser ring to break up the bubbles making them smaller. Smaller bubbles mean 75% less noise so you can enjoy a quieter cuppa, ideal if you are making drinks while people are sleeping or you don’t want to disturb the baby.

Features and Benefits

  • A Delicious hot drink in 45 seconds* - In addition to its quiet boil technology, it has a rapid boil feature that lets you boil a cup of water in just 45 seconds. It’s ideal if you need a hot drink fast or you’re just making one cup. The kettle has a perfect pour spout so all of the water goes into the cup with fewer splashes and spills. 
  • Quiet Boil Technology – No more talking loudly over the noise or waking people up in the morning - this quiet boil kettle is up to 75%* quieter than a standard kettle.
  • 1.7 Litre Capacity – It's big enough to make up to seven cups, making it a great choice for larger family homes.
  • Dual water windows - The Buckingham Kettle has a water window on both sides of the kettle so you can check the water level quickly without having to open the lid an see how much is going in as you fill

*-When tested against other Russell Hobbs Kettles without quiet boil technology

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and quiet boil, a cost-effective choice Been using this for about a fortnight and am very pleased with my purchase. I would have loved a bright colour or fun shape, but with things as they are with energy prices I went for something that could boil a small amount quickly, as kettles are one of the highest energy drains despite their small size. This is efficient, unobtrusive, classic, and does have a pretty blue light whilst boiling (which doesn’t stay on once boiled unlike some, again thinking of running cost). Lid opens with a push button, far enough to fill easily. Pours well without dripping. I saved I think 15% which made it particularly good value. Only thing I would improve would be a range of snazzy colours…at the moment the prettier kettles don’t get such good reviews, but I don’t see why they can’t match function with style!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Russell Hobbs kettle model 20460 Russell Hobbs kettle model 20460 We purchased a few months ago a kettle for our son he said it was the best thing we ever bought him, so today we purchased one for ourselves

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Never believed it [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Always thinking in my head, "oh a kettle will always be loud due to the element". I have to admit I was wrong. This kettle is great at keeping the noise levels down while allowing us to see its working by the blie light appearing. Just the amount it can boil is less than my old one

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boils quickly and more quietly than the average I bought this yesterday and have therefore only just started using it. It boils very quickly indeed and far quieter than any other kettle I have previously owned. I noticed on the product information that it is recommended that you should descale at least on a monthly basis. This may explain why one or two other users report the kettle becoming noisier over time (if they had omitted to descale). It is a neat, well made and, in my opinion, attractive looking kettle. One or two very slight niggles. It is a little heavier than our previous kettle which causes my partner, who has some physical limitations, to have some difficulties. You also need to tip the kettle more to pour just because of this particular design (our previous kettle had a handle over the top of the kettle and it reached tipping point quicker). Neither of these niggles are likely to affect many users but I mention them nonetheless for the sake of completeness. Just to be clear - I really like this kettle.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not so quiet Over the years I have had three Russell Hobbs Buckingham kettles, so yes I think they are ideal for me. The first lasted well but stopped heating so I bought the same model as a replacement. The second kettle still works after a couple of years but the lid release failed so I'm now on my third. Unfortunately it sounds noisy as if ready to pull out of the station! Is there been a design change or is it a quality issue?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive features, quiet and quick [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This kettle looks stylish with the silver and black finish and the blue light. The speed actually impresses me more than the noise, maybe assisted by the tea cup guides on the side. Was probably overfilling my kettle before. Sound is certainly less than a normal kettle but maybe not quite as quiet as I expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I m quite impressed of the good quality. I always thought the Brand BOSH is the best but I think I have lied myself. Because everyday i learn something new.. Quick boiling, turn off itself. Quality high, very really very good value for money. Very practical, and easy to understand how works. Honestly very useful, and also the nice colour and material. Happy with this brand

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing kettle [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I cannot fault this kettle it is super silent and boils really quickly. It wa Seay to set up and I’m really pleased with how it operates. It is stylish so suits my modern kitchen really well! I would definitely recommend this for anyone looking for a stylish, quiet boiling kettle!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and very quiet [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is great I love using it and it's not very loud so that's good as well I would definitely recommend this and it doesn't take to long to boil so its very good the kettle looks great and is just perfect for my kitchen

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great kettle [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The kettle design is very sleek and sturdy. It has a water level indicator and a 360 degree rotational base.the bottom of the kettle illuminates a blue colour when it is switched on and it looks very nice. The more water in the kettle the heavy the kettle gets to lift and I think it's not that quiet and is similar to other kettles. It pour very nicely and smoothly and boils up rapidly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stylish and quiet kettle [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Getting up early on a morning and making a brew, but not wanting to disturb the rest of the house, this kettle seemed like it would fit the bill, and it certainly achieves that. It's a very stylish looking kettle, and looks right at home in our kitchen. The neon blue light when the kettle is boiling that lights up, is a very nice touch as you can instantly see if it is active or not. Now me being the geek I am, I actually used a noise meter app on my phone to try to measure the difference in ambient noise when using the old and new kettle, and there was a definite difference. Although not huge in terms of numbers, the discernable difference in the real world is very noticeable and is really understated. It also feels like it does boil faster than my old one, with the ability to boil even just one cup of water, which is a great boon these days. Also inside the kettle there is a little bright red marker to indicate 1, 2 or 3 cups of water so no need to look at the side measure to see if you have enough water. The only downside I would say is the total amount of water that it can boil as it isn't quite the same volume as I had previously but not a major concern. Overall, a kettle well worth having!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Quiet I bought this last week and am very impressed with it, particularly how quiet the kettle it. This is very useful when working from home or making tea early in the morning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish, Effective and Quiet! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Russell Hobbs quiet boil kettle is sleek, modern and looks super stylish in my kitchen. I love the brushed steel finish and the illuminated blue ring that lights up. It is a light kettle and the handle is comfortable. I thoroughly enjoyed using this kettle and found it perfect for my needs in my house. It is a quiet boil kettle meaning I can make my tea quietly without waking my family up in the mornings. This is a great feature as previous kettles have been very noisy. I also love how this boils water fast, this fits in with my busy schedule as it boils water in just 45 seconds. With a light touch the lid to the kettle pops opens easily allowing me to pour the water out. Once boiled the water stays warm for some time. This kettle also has the addition of the red internal cup markers making it easier to have the right amount of water for 1 or 2 cups. It is very reliable and turns on and off with a click of the button. I really love using this kettle, it is perfect for my family household, and I am very happy I found it. I would definitely recommend this to others who want a fast boiling and stylish kettle that works very well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This Russell Hobbs quiet boil kettle has a nice stylish look and generally well built. I have marked it down a star because of the lid design. My lid seems a little poorly made compared to the rest but the kettle is generally of good quality and quiet
Date published: 2022-04-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet boiling [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a great kettle which does exactly what it describes and that boils quietly and rapidly especially one cup boil.The base is a perfect size as doesn't take up too much work surface and its not bulky.The added rim of light adds that extra little detail.Great bit of kettle

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time for a quick and quiet cuppa [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love using this kettle. It comes neatly boxed and includes the kettle itself and the plug coil neatly wrapped into the base. It’s simple to set up. The kettle has a sleek, modern brushed steel design with a black handle. It looks nice on display. There’s a water window on the front of the kettle with the brand name. There’s 3 teacups and each one equals 2 cups of tea so you boil the right amount of water. One cup takes 45 seconds! It’s fantastic and very quiet. It does have a bit of weight to it but is generally easy to pick up and pour. The pour itself is smooth and feels extra safe with no spillage. It’s easy to keep clean and so far I’m very happy with it as it’s made tea & coffee breaks so much faster and uses less electric. I like the added feature of the blue light at the base when you’re boiling water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple Quick Kettle [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] If you are looking for a simple kettle that boils water very quickly then this is great. It is no frills and does the job it needs to at a good speed. The nice brushed metal finish looks good in the kitchen and I have had no issues with filling or pouring from the kettle as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this kettle [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I really really love this kettle, my pet hat is electrical items making loud noises and my old kettle was so loud, so tried this Russell Hobbs quiet boil kettle and oh my it’s so so quiet I really love it so much it’s a definite hit in this house. I would really recommend this kettle it’s brilliant
Date published: 2022-04-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This was replacing another Russell Hobbs kettle so already knew it would be a quality item. It claims to be a quiet boil kettle and it is a bit quieter than my old one. It also has a great wee red gadget inside for measuring the amount of water that you would need to use for a couple of cups which is great for energy saving as it takes less time to boil. Amazing the things you learn when you read the specs. Seen them before but didn't know what they were for. Overall I was impressed with all of the features of this kettle. And it looks good too. The only thing that I noticed that I'd never noticed on my previous kettle was when you fill it up to max and boil it it shakes quite a bit just before it switches off. Doesn't take away from all the good points though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quite boil kettle [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] So I think this kettle is great. The design is really simple, I really like the shape of the spout which makes it super easy to pour without spillages. The quiet boil feature is so good, its the quietest kettle that I've ever heard! I would definitely recommend if you looking for a quite kettle!
Date published: 2022-04-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressed [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This kettle is indeed quiet in operation, but it has 2 main features which I really like. The first is that it has a water gauge on both sides, so you don’t have to faff about trying to see how much water is in it. The second is that the brushed finish makes it really easy to keep clean and doesn’t show finger marks. If you are looking for a new kettle I would recommend this one.
Date published: 2022-04-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very quiet [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This kettle boils water fast and is very quiet. The blue light around the rim indicates that it is on. The three red markers indicate the fill levels inside the kettle. Filling to any of these makes it boil much faster than if you fill the full kettle. Overall it works well
Date published: 2022-04-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sometimes quiet! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] It is quiet when it’s a full kettle. As the filling gets less then the noise gets louder. It’s a lot less than a normal kettle though. Like that the base lights up and there is a window on each side of the kettle. Just wish the actually window was illuminated too. Does boil quickly. Much more energy efficient than my precious kettle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a nice size, it is smaller than i thought but still a good size. It is also quiet, it meets the description. I would recommend this. It is easy to use too and a nice colour too, a nice kitchen appliance to have

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great features! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] packaging was brilliant,showed what the item was,was very quite when boiling lights up while boiling great design silver in colour shows how many cups of water it holds good flip action on the boiling section opens with click on the top over all good kettle.
Date published: 2022-04-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pours nicely [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Yes, it is quiet in that it isn't as noisy as some can be. I would definitely call it a quiet boil kettle, but the best thing I like about it is the fact that when you pour, it doesn't drip which seems to be a problem with a lot of kettles these days. It also boils quickly so enough water for a cup of tea is ready in seconds. I would certainly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Been using this for a few weeks now absolutely love how quiet it is compared to the numerous kettles I’ve had in the past, looks really smart and tidy fits in well in the kitchen. It seems to boil quicker than previous kettles. Absolutely love it.
