6 Reasons For for Choosing the Brentwood KT1960BK

1.4L Bigger Water Tank Capacity

The Brentwood KT1960BK has a water tank capacity of 1.8L, whereas the Breville VKJ956, the Igenix IG7270 and the Russell Hobbs Darwin are all only 1.7L electric kettles (0.1L smaller) and the Swan SK27010N is only a 0.4L electric kettle (1.4L 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.

Boil-Dry Protection

The Brentwood KT1960BK has a boil-dry protection, and so do the Breville VKJ956 and the Igenix IG7270, but the Russell Hobbs Darwin and the Swan SK27010N do not. 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 Brentwood KT1960BK supports filtering, and so do the Breville VKJ956, the Igenix IG7270 and the Russell Hobbs Darwin, but the Swan SK27010N does not. More ...

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

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 Brentwood KT1960BK is a cordless electric kettle (as are the Breville VKJ956, the Igenix IG7270 and the Russell Hobbs Darwin), 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.

More Shops Are Selling It

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

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Russell Hobbs Darwin

Filtering

The Russell Hobbs Darwin supports filtering (as do the Brentwood KT1960BK, the Breville VKJ956 and the Igenix IG7270), 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 Russell Hobbs Darwin has a 360° rotational base (as do the Brentwood KT1960BK and the Breville VKJ956), but the Igenix IG7270 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 Breville VKJ956 and the Igenix IG7270, whereas 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%, whereas Brentwood only has an average rating of 89.4%, Breville only has an average rating of 91.9%, Igenix only has an average rating of 80.1% and Swan only has an average rating of 83.9%.

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the Russell Hobbs Darwin

Smaller Water Tank Capacity

The Russell Hobbs Darwin is a 1.7L electric kettle, and so do the Breville VKJ956 and the Igenix IG7270. 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 (as does the Breville VKJ956), whereas the Brentwood KT1960BK, the Igenix IG7270 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, but the Brentwood KT1960BK, the Breville VKJ956, the Igenix IG7270 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 84, however the Brentwood KT1960BK scored 85, the Breville VKJ956 scored 85 and the Swan SK27010N scored 88.

Less Retailers

The Russell Hobbs Darwin is only stocked by 1 store, whereas the Brentwood KT1960BK is stocked by 10 retailers and the Breville VKJ956 is stocked by 2 retailers. More ...
