Yes, if your worried, use a fine emory paper to clean off the tarnish from the heat scorch. You may have shortened the life a little on the element but it is fine as long as it is not spalling, of flaking.

We have a sunbeam peace and quiet kettle ke7500s it is approx 3months old. When we reboil the water there's always a tainted water taste in the tea and coffee .The taste is so bad we tip out the hot...


As you know friend, some water when it is boiled it really taste bad so I suggest use a water purifier to filter other out dirt, dust, other particles in a water street supply. Sure when you drink the water (not boiled) it doesn't taste bad, that's normal because we can't distinguish it easily. Also try to clean your kettle using baking soda it will eliminate tainted taste.
I hope my advice help you with your problem.

How do you desalazize kettle?


If by desalazize you mean remove the deposits which build up from the minerals in your tap water, the easiest way to do it is with white vinegar (most vinegar will work but white is best for cleaning).
  1. Fill kettle with a mixture of white vinegar and water (about 50/50 but it doesn't have to be exact) until it covers as much of the deposits as possible.
  2. Heat the kettle until the liquid boils
  3. Let the kettle sit with the liquid in it for 3-6 hours
  4. Empty and Rinse
  5. Fill kettle with regular water, boil, and empty to get rid of any lingering vinegar taste.
If the deposits are especially thick, you may need to repeat steps 1-4 before moving on to step 5.

I want to buy a replacement KETTLE only, for my black, RH Quick 2 Boil Kettle, any suggestions. Nick


I would contact Russel Hobbs and see if they actually sell them separately. When you are online to them there should be available, a list of retailers that stock the item you want http://www.amazon.co.uk/Russell-Hobbs-15198-Quick-2-Boil-Kettle/dp/B003DNSQPC

I see what you mean, it is part of a set. I bought one, in dark grey, and I am sure they sold one in black, from Wilkinsons. It was Quick Boil Kettle only, on a standard connector stand. TJ Hughes also stock them!

Hope that helps.

I have a Russell Hobbs kettle which is now leaking. Can it be repaired. It is several years old but still works well.


The coils of Russel Hobbs outrun the shell jar for sure as the corrosion in the kettle would have caused the leak.
The best can be to get the kettle welded with metal, use gas welding to mend up the leak and use a good grinding tool to polish off the suface.
Wash and clean/scrub well to remove all flux /dirt before you use it.
Boil water three times to discard before you use it.
You can continue to use the Hobbs.

New kettle leaves a metalic tast to water after boiling.


Try different water. If you use tap water normally, buy a jug of water at the store. The pH may be wrong (particularly if it is too low) and leeching metal from the kettle. Good luck.

Can i use water boiled from microware to make formula milk for a baby that is 1yr old


I wouldn't recommend to use the microwave to boil water. Here you can read the reason why: http://www.snopes.com/science/microwave.asp

Water can 'explode' when heated in a microwave under certain conditions. Best way to boil water should either be using a water boiler or an old-fashioned kettle.

Sounds like cooking metal


i once had a similar problem. look at where microwaves enter the oven chamber and look for some sort of food splatter screen. possible the splatter has accumulated over time. mine was baked on so I actually boiled it out in a pan of boiling water. problem cured.
