Multiple reviews mentioned that Russell Hobbs Darwin has great user reviews with 100% of buyers recommending this kettle to others.

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Russell Hobbs Darwin

A Lot Bigger Water Tank Capacity

The Russell Hobbs Darwin has a water tank capacity of 1.7 (as do the Essentials C17JKW17, the Igenix IG7270 and the Igenix IG7280), however the Russell Hobbs Classic is only a 1L electric kettle (0.7L smaller). More ...

'Water Tank Capacity' is the maximum capacity of water that the kettle can hold at a time.

A bigger water tank means that more water can be heated at once, meaning you'll need to fill up the kettle less.

360° Rotational Base

The Russell Hobbs Darwin has a 360° rotational base, and so does the Russell Hobbs Classic, however the Essentials C17JKW17, the Igenix IG7270 and the Igenix IG7280 do not. More ...

A rotational base is one that allows the kettle to be put down at any angle, so there's not just one way that it fits with the base.

A rotational base is helpful, since it allows you to put the kettle back on the base from any angle or rotation, meaning you don't have to fight with the kettle to get it to dock with the base.

Cordless

The Russell Hobbs Darwin is a cordless electric kettle (as are the Igenix IG7270, the Igenix IG7280 and the Russell Hobbs Classic), but the Essentials C17JKW17 is not. More ...

'Cordless' denotes whether the kettle has a power cord attached or not.

Cordless kettles are helpful because they are far easier to use and pour, without worrying about getting caught up in a power cable.

Better Kagoo Score

The Russell Hobbs Darwin has received a Kagoo Score of 83, whereas the Essentials C17JKW17 scored 80, the Igenix IG7270 scored 82, the Igenix IG7280 scored 78 and the Russell Hobbs Classic scored 81.

More Shops Are Selling It

A greater number of retailers increases the price competition amongst retailers for this electric kettle and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

Better Brand

Russell Hobbs electric kettles have an average rating of 95%, but Essentials only has an average rating of 63.5% and Igenix only has an average rating of 79%.

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Russell Hobbs Darwin

Removable, Washable Anti-Calc Filter

The Russell Hobbs Darwin has a removable, washable anti-calc filter, and so do the Essentials C17JKW17 and the Russell Hobbs Classic, but the Igenix IG7270 and the Igenix IG7280 do not. More ...

Denotes whether the kettle has a special reusable filter to stop impurities being introduced to your drinking water.

A removable, washable filter means that it can be cleaned to keep it at peak efficiency, and can be used multiple times, saving you money.

Does Not Have a Boil-Dry Protection

The Russell Hobbs Darwin does not have a boil-dry protection, however the Essentials C17JKW17, the Igenix IG7270, the Igenix IG7280 and the Russell Hobbs Classic have this feature. More ...

'Boil-dry protection' is a special system that stops the kettle from boiling if there isn't a minimum amount of water in it.

Running the kettle without any water in can damage the appliance and stop it from working. Boil-dry protection stops this from happening.

Over One Year Older

The Russell Hobbs Darwin is older than the Russell Hobbs Classic by 13 months.

A Bit Lower User Review Score

The average user rating of the Russell Hobbs Darwin is 88%, whereas the average user rating of the Russell Hobbs Classic is 89% (based on 90 reviews).

A Bit Lower Overall Review Score

The average overall rating of the Russell Hobbs Darwin is 88%, whereas the average overall rating of the Russell Hobbs Classic is 89% (based on 90 reviews).

Less Customers Recommend It

Only 83.1% of 118 customers recommend the Russell Hobbs Darwin, but 87.5% of 8 customers recommend the Igenix IG7270.

Less Fairly Priced

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Russell Hobbs Darwin was less fairly priced.
