We’ve rounded up the five most viewed kettles on which.co.uk for 2015, with big brands Russell Hobbs and Dualit both featuring.
You might think that a kettle is a kettle but we’ve found Best Buy kettles that can boil enough water for four cups of water in less than two and a half minutes – the Don’t Buys can take up to four minutes. The worst are also heavy and noisy, and can even leave you sipping limescale with your cuppa.
Below we’ve rounded up the most viewed kettles on Which.co.uk since the start of the year. You can find your perfect kettle, by seeing the results of our in-depth tests in our kettle reviews. We’ve tested 243 models and awarded 85 Best Buys.
1. Russell Hobbs Buckingham 20460
Priced between £30 and £40, the Russell Hobbs Buckingham is a reasonably-priced kettle with a brushed steel body and water windows on both sides of the body, so you can see how full it is. Russell Hobbs says it is 75% quieter than most other Russell Hobbs kettles.

2. Asda George Home GPK201B
