With technology progressing at an alarming rate how will the new Russell Hobbs Buckingham Kettle which boils quieter stand up to my vigourous tea drinking tests. Here I review the new kettle and give tell you the pro’s and con’s of this new device.
I am a massive tea drinker, in fact I have on average a cup of tea every 30 minutes! I know, I know, maybe I shouldn’t but it’s a very English thing to do in my opinion.
Personally, I tend to be a bit of a night owl and find I write best when everyone else in the house tucked up in bed and fast asleep. I live in a house of light sleepers, So, I have to creep around downstairs as every thing I do seems to wake them up!
My husband works shifts, so he can sometimes be found asleep on the sofa so making my regular cup of tea is compromised. My kettle is pretty noisy and the noise seems to get louder and louder before I can finally make a hot cup of tea.When I was sent the Russell Hobbs Buckingham Kettle to try out, I was curious to see if it really was quieter than the standard kettle. This Russell Hobbs Buckingham Kettle states it has a 75% quieter boil and I set out to put it to the test.
The Shh! quieter boil Test
I waited until my husband was working a night shift and I knew he would be taking a nap on the sofa in the afternoon. I filled up my new kettle and started boiling the water. The Buckingham kettle started boiling with a distinctly quieter noise than my usual kettle, I waited for the noise to increase as the kettle got hotter, I was amazed at how quiet this kettle was , It is amazing and with it’s rapid boil feature it’s faster too.I recommended this to my sister as with a little baby when they take their little mid morning nap you do not want to do anything that might wake them, every peaceful moment is precious and much needed to get your housework done or just take a ten minute rest with a cup of tea and a biscuit with your feet up.
The Buckingham Kettle would be a perfect gift for parents of babies and young children, It is also fantastic for sterilizing baby bottles without waking up your little one.
Normally when you find a product that is so efficient and makes your life easier, they normally are not the most pleasing to the eye, but this is both.It looks sleek with a brushed stainless steel finish and a neat light ring which illuminates when boiling, It also comes with a handy cup volume display. with a 1.7 L Capacity it is the perfect Kettle for coffee mornings with friends or if you are like me drink excessive amounts of tea!
To compliment my shiny new kettle, I was sent such a lovely little relaxing pick me up gift set containing all of the following:
- 1 Russell Hobbs Buckingham Kettle
- A lovely hand painted tea cup set
- 3 gorgeous tins of Adagio tea bags
- A tasty box of Pretty Macarons
- A cute Organic ‘Time for Tea Mummy’ baby grow
The Russell Hobbs Buckingham range also features a toaster and coffee maker – both super speedy and equally as quiet, I need to get these and soon!
The Buckingham Toaster has faster toasting technology ( approx 55%) quicker than your normal toaster, It is priced at £29.99 for the 2 slice model and £49.99 for a family size 4 slice model.
Both the two and four slice models are finished in brushed stainless steel and a feature light ring display that tells you when it’s busy toasting.
The Buckingham Coffee Machine (1.25L)
carafe holds up to 10 cups of coffee, whilst also offering a 2-4 cup setting if it’s just for you and a friend whilst the baby naps. Fancy waking to the smell of freshly brewed coffee? Then the Buckingham’s 24-hour programmable timer is what you’re looking for.
The machine looks great with its stainless steel finish and illuminated ring that glows blue during brewing. The Buckingham will stay looking great too, thanks to its auto clean feature.
I can honestly say so far I have not found anything negative with the Buckingham Kettle, hopefully I never will!
