Non-Drip Spout

The Swan SK27010N has a non-drip spout, whereas the Brentwood KT1960BK, the Igenix IG7270, the Proctor Silex K4097 and the Russell Hobbs Darwin 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.

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Swan SK27010N

1.4L Smaller Water Tank Capacity

'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.

Less Retailers

Only 2 stores sells the Swan SK27010N, whereas 16 stores sell the Brentwood KT1960BK, 3 sellers sell the Proctor Silex K4097 and 4 sellers sell the Russell Hobbs Darwin. More ...

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Russell Hobbs Darwin

Filtering

The Russell Hobbs Darwin supports filtering (as do the Brentwood KT1960BK and the Igenix IG7270), but the Proctor Silex K4097 and the Swan SK27010N do 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 Russell Hobbs Darwin has a 360° rotational base (as does the Brentwood KT1960BK), whereas the Igenix IG7270, the Proctor Silex K4097 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 Russell Hobbs Darwin is cordless, and so are the Brentwood KT1960BK, the Igenix IG7270 and the Proctor Silex K4097, however the Swan SK27010N 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 Brand

Russell Hobbs electric kettles have an average rating of 95%, however Brentwood only has an average rating of 88.4%, Igenix only has an average rating of 77.2%, Proctor Silex only has an average rating of 60% and Swan only has an average rating of 79.5%.

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Russell Hobbs Darwin

6% Smaller Water Tank Capacity

The Russell Hobbs Darwin is a 1.7 electric kettle, and so do the Igenix IG7270 and the Proctor Silex K4097. That's 0.1L smaller than the Brentwood KT1960BK (1.8L) and 1.3L bigger than 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.

Removable, Washable Anti-Calc Filter

The Russell Hobbs Darwin has a removable, washable anti-calc filter, however the Brentwood KT1960BK, the Igenix IG7270, the Proctor Silex K4097 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.

Does Not Have a Boil-Dry Protection

The Russell Hobbs Darwin does not have a boil-dry protection, whereas the Brentwood KT1960BK, the Igenix IG7270, the Proctor Silex K4097 and the Swan SK27010N do. 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Russell Hobbs Darwin has received a Kagoo Score of 86, but the Swan SK27010N scored 88.

More Expensive by $3

The Russell Hobbs Darwin is $3 more expensive than the Proctor Silex K4097.

Not As Many Stockists

The Russell Hobbs Darwin is only stocked by 4 stores, however the Brentwood KT1960BK is stocked by 16 stores. More ...

Fewer numbers of shops reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this electric kettle.
Older by One Month

The Russell Hobbs Darwin is one month older than the Brentwood KT1960BK.

Higher Running Costs Over Five Years by $275

Over five years the running costs of the Russell Hobbs Darwin are $504 which is $252 more than the Brentwood KT1960BK, $160 more than the Proctor Silex K4097 and $275 more than the Swan SK27010N. Show assumptions.

Boil-Dry Protection

The Igenix IG7270 has a boil-dry protection, and so do the Brentwood KT1960BK and the Proctor Silex K4097, whereas the Russell Hobbs Darwin and the Swan SK27010N do not. More ...

Cordless

The Igenix IG7270 is a cordless electric kettle (as are the Brentwood KT1960BK, the Proctor Silex K4097 and the Russell Hobbs Darwin), but the Swan SK27010N is not. More ...

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