8 Reasons For for Choosing the Swan SK27010N

Automatic Shut Off System

The Swan SK27010N has an automatic shut off system (as does the Igenix IG7458), but the Brentwood KT1960BK, the Breville VKJ897 and the Russell Hobbs Darwin do not have this feature. 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, but the Brentwood KT1960BK, the Breville VKJ897, the Igenix IG7458 and the Russell Hobbs Darwin 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Swan SK27010N has received a Kagoo Score of 88, whereas the Brentwood KT1960BK scored 85, the Breville VKJ897 scored 83, the Igenix IG7458 scored 85 and the Russell Hobbs Darwin scored 86.

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the Swan SK27010N

Smaller Water Tank Capacity

The Swan SK27010N is a 0.4 electric kettle. That's 1.3L smaller than the Brentwood KT1960BK, the Breville VKJ897, the Igenix IG7458 and the Russell Hobbs Darwin (1.7L). 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.

Does Not Have an Adjustable Thermostat

The Swan SK27010N does not have an adjustable thermostat (As do the the Brentwood KT1960BK and the Igenix IG7458), however the Breville VKJ897 and the Russell Hobbs Darwin do. More ...

'Adjustable Thermostat' denotes whether you can change how hot the kettle heats the water to.

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

Fewer Sellers

The Swan SK27010N is only stocked by 2 shops, but the Brentwood KT1960BK is stocked by 16 shops and the Russell Hobbs Darwin is stocked by 4 sellers. More ...

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Russell Hobbs Darwin

Filtering

The Russell Hobbs Darwin supports filtering, and so do the Brentwood KT1960BK and the Igenix IG7458, however the Breville VKJ897 and the Swan SK27010N do not. 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, and so do the Brentwood KT1960BK and the Igenix IG7458, but the Breville VKJ897 and the Swan SK27010N do not. 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 a cordless electric kettle (as are the Brentwood KT1960BK and the Igenix IG7458), whereas the Breville VKJ897 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.

More Customers Recommend it

83.1% of 118 customers recommend the Russell Hobbs Darwin, whereas only 81.1% of 429 customers recommend the Breville VKJ897 and only 66% of 47 customers recommend the Swan SK27010N.

Better Brand

Russell Hobbs electric kettles have an average rating of 95%, whereas Brentwood only has an average rating of 88.4%, Breville only has an average rating of 85%, Igenix only has an average rating of 77.2% and Swan only has an average rating of 79.5%.

Has a Better OK Noise Level

On average reviewers thought the Russell Hobbs Darwin has a better OK noise level. Over 90 people thought that it was very noisy.

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Russell Hobbs Darwin

0.1L Smaller Water Tank Capacity

The Russell Hobbs Darwin has a water tank capacity of 1.7 (as does the Breville VKJ897), but the Brentwood KT1960BK and the Igenix IG7458 are both 1L electric kettles (0.7L smaller) and the Swan SK27010N is a 0.4L electric kettle (1.3L 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.

Removable, Washable Anti-Calc Filter

The Russell Hobbs Darwin has a removable, washable anti-calc filter, whereas the Brentwood KT1960BK, the Breville VKJ897, the Igenix IG7458 and the Swan SK27010N do not. 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 VKJ897, the Igenix IG7458 and the Swan SK27010N 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

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 (as does the Igenix IG7458), but the Breville VKJ897, the Russell Hobbs Darwin and the Swan SK27010N do 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 Brentwood KT1960BK supports filtering (as do the Igenix IG7458 and the Russell Hobbs Darwin), but the Breville VKJ897 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 Brentwood KT1960BK has a 360° rotational base (as do the Igenix IG7458 and the Russell Hobbs Darwin), whereas the Breville VKJ897 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 Brentwood KT1960BK is cordless, and so are the Igenix IG7458 and the Russell Hobbs Darwin, however the Breville VKJ897 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.

More Shops Are Selling it

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

4 Reasons Against for Choosing the Brentwood KT1960BK

Does Not Have an Adjustable Thermostat

The Brentwood KT1960BK does not have an adjustable thermostat (As do the the Igenix IG7458 and the Swan SK27010N), whereas the Breville VKJ897 and the Russell Hobbs Darwin do. More ...

'Adjustable Thermostat' denotes whether you can change how hot the kettle heats the water to.

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