We were given a Russell Hobbs as a wedding present. It lasted 20+ years. We've had a succession since incl 2 more Russells. 5? 10? Who knows. As frustrating as toasters. None have lasted more than a couple of years. Generally because they start leaking where the level gauge penetrates the body of the kettle. Had the infamous Whisper kettle. "Whispered" so loud you couldn't hold a conversation in the same room. Went for the Sunbeam as the first glass cylinder kettle we found - no gauge with short-lived seals puncturing the cylinder. The best kettle we've owned if it outlives the 1st Russell
No plastic to fill our cuppa with phthalates and other noxious chemicals. We may be forced to live forever.
Yes, I recommend this product.
