5 Reasons For for Choosing the Swan SK27010N

Automatic Shut Off System

The Swan SK27010N has an automatic shut off system, and so does the Igenix IG7458, whereas the Breville VKJ755, the Morphy Richards Dimensions and the Russell Hobbs 23840 do not. More ...

'Auto Shut-Off System' denotes whether the kettle has a system to automatically shut off power in the event of a fault, to stop potential damage to the appliance.

An automatic shut off system helps to safeguard in the case of a fault with the appliance, meaning the chance of an electrical fire is greatly reduced.

Non-Drip Spout

The Swan SK27010N has a non-drip spout (as does the Breville VKJ755), whereas the Igenix IG7458, the Morphy Richards Dimensions and the Russell Hobbs 23840 do not have this feature. More ...

Whether the kettle has a spout that is specially designed to be easy to fill from the tap.

A well-designed spout means there is less chance of a spillage when filling up the kettle.

Better Kagoo Score

The Swan SK27010N has received a Kagoo Score of 88, however the Breville VKJ755 scored 84, the Igenix IG7458 scored 85, the Morphy Richards Dimensions scored 84 and the Russell Hobbs 23840 scored 85.

55% Cheaper to Run Over Five Years

The Swan SK27010N is $275 cheaper to run than the Igenix IG7458 over five years. More ...

Has a Better Price

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Swan SK27010N

Hugely Smaller Water Tank Capacity

The Swan SK27010N has a water tank capacity of 0.4, but the Breville VKJ755, the Igenix IG7458 and the Morphy Richards Dimensions are all 1.5L electric kettles (1.1L bigger) and the Russell Hobbs 23840 is a 0.85L electric kettle (0.45L bigger). 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.

This is useful if you don't need boiling water, and makes the kettle more versatile.

Less Retailers

Smaller numbers of retailers reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this electric kettle and also reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock.

10 Reasons For for Choosing the Breville VKJ755

Bigger Water Tank Capacity

The Breville VKJ755 is a 1.7 electric kettle. That's 0.2L bigger than the Igenix IG7458 and the Morphy Richards Dimensions (1.5L) and 1.3L bigger than the Russell Hobbs 23840 and the Swan SK27010N (0.4L). 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.

Non-Drip Spout

The Breville VKJ755 has a non-drip spout, and so does the Swan SK27010N, whereas the Igenix IG7458, the Morphy Richards Dimensions and the Russell Hobbs 23840 do not. More ...

Whether the kettle has a spout that is specially designed to be easy to fill from the tap.

A well-designed spout means there is less chance of a spillage when filling up the kettle.

Boil-Dry Protection

The Breville VKJ755 has a boil-dry protection (as do the Igenix IG7458, the Morphy Richards Dimensions and the Russell Hobbs 23840), however the Swan SK27010N does not 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.

Filtering

The Breville VKJ755 supports filtering (as do the Igenix IG7458, the Morphy Richards Dimensions and the Russell Hobbs 23840), however the Swan SK27010N does not support this feature. More ...

'Filtering' denotes whether the kettle has a special filter to stop impurities being introduced to your drinking water.

A filter on your kettle means that the water produced by the kettle is as fresh and pure as it can be.

360° Rotational Base

The Breville VKJ755 has a 360° rotational base (as do the Igenix IG7458 and the Morphy Richards Dimensions), but the Russell Hobbs 23840 and the Swan SK27010N do not have this feature. 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 Breville VKJ755 is cordless, and so is the Igenix IG7458, whereas the Morphy Richards Dimensions, the Russell Hobbs 23840 and the Swan SK27010N are 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.

A Little Better Overall Reviews

The Breville VKJ755 has an average overall review score of 93% based on 248 reviews, however the Igenix IG7458 has an average rating of 91% (based on 281 reviews) and the Swan SK27010N has an average rating of 91% (based on 47 reviews).

Easier to Use

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Breville VKJ755

Removable, Washable Anti-Calc Filter

The Breville VKJ755 has a removable, washable anti-calc filter (as does the Russell Hobbs 23840), whereas the Igenix IG7458, the Morphy Richards Dimensions and the Swan SK27010N do not have this feature. 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Breville VKJ755 has received a Kagoo Score of 84, however the Igenix IG7458 scored 85, the Russell Hobbs 23840 scored 85 and the Swan SK27010N scored 88.
