Multiple reviews mentioned that Swan SK27010N has superb user reviews with 100% of buyers recommending this kettle to others.

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Swan SK27010N

Automatic Shut Off System

The Swan SK27010N has an automatic shut off system (as does the Igenix IG7270), however the Brentwood KT1960BK, the Breville VKJ755 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, and so does the Breville VKJ755, however the Brentwood KT1960BK, the Igenix IG7270 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, but the Brentwood KT1960BK scored 85, the Breville VKJ755 scored 83, the Igenix IG7270 scored 84 and the Russell Hobbs Darwin scored 84.

$24 Cheaper to Run Over Five Years

Over five years the Swan SK27010N is $24 cheaper to run than the Brentwood KT1960BK. More ...

Slightly Better User Reviews

Based on 47 reviews, the Swan SK27010N has an average user review score of 91%, but the Breville VKJ755 has an average rating of 90% (based on 438 reviews), the Igenix IG7270 has an average rating of 88% (based on 8 reviews) and the Russell Hobbs Darwin has an average rating of 87% (based on 125 reviews).

Slightly Better Overall Reviews

Based on 47 reviews, the Swan SK27010N has an average overall review score of 91%, but the Breville VKJ755 has an average rating of 90% (based on 438 reviews), the Igenix IG7270 has an average rating of 88% (based on 8 reviews) and the Russell Hobbs Darwin has an average rating of 87% (based on 125 reviews).

More Reasonably Priced

Our analysis of the Swan SK27010N reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Swan SK27010N was more reasonably priced.

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Swan SK27010N

78% Smaller Water Tank Capacity

The Swan SK27010N is a 0.4L electric kettle. That's 1.3L smaller than the Brentwood KT1960BK, the Breville VKJ755, the Igenix IG7270 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, the Breville VKJ755 and the Igenix IG7270), whereas the Russell Hobbs Darwin does. 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.

More Expensive by $4

The Swan SK27010N is $4 more expensive than the Brentwood KT1960BK.

Not As Many Stockists

The Swan SK27010N is only stocked by 1 seller, however the Brentwood KT1960BK is stocked by 10 retailers. 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 Over Five Years

The Swan SK27010N is two years older than the Brentwood KT1960BK, five years older than the Breville VKJ755 and two years older than the Russell Hobbs Darwin. The Swan SK27010N is the same age as the Igenix IG7270.

Less Customers Recommend It

Only 66% of 47 customers recommend the Swan SK27010N, however 87.5% of 8 customers recommend the Igenix IG7270 and 78.4% of 125 customers recommend the Russell Hobbs Darwin.

Worse Brand

9 Reasons For for Choosing the Breville VKJ755

Non-Drip Spout

The Breville VKJ755 has a non-drip spout (as does the Swan SK27010N), however the Brentwood KT1960BK, the Igenix IG7270 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.

Boil-Dry Protection

The Breville VKJ755 has a boil-dry protection, and so do the Brentwood KT1960BK 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 Breville VKJ755 supports filtering, and so do the Brentwood KT1960BK, 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 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, and so do the Brentwood KT1960BK and the Russell Hobbs Darwin, whereas the Igenix IG7270 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 Breville VKJ755 is a cordless electric kettle (as are the Brentwood KT1960BK, 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.

Three Years Newer

The Breville VKJ755 was released 11 months ago, but the Brentwood KT1960BK was released four years ago, the Igenix IG7270 was released six years ago, the Russell Hobbs Darwin was released four years ago and the Swan SK27010N was released six years ago

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Breville VKJ755

Slightly Smaller Water Tank Capacity

The Breville VKJ755 has a water tank capacity of 1.7L (as do the Igenix IG7270 and the Russell Hobbs Darwin), whereas the Brentwood KT1960BK is a 1.8L electric kettle (0.1L bigger) 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 Breville VKJ755 has a removable, washable anti-calc filter, and so does the Russell Hobbs Darwin, however the Brentwood KT1960BK, the Igenix IG7270 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 an Adjustable Thermostat

The Breville VKJ755 does not have an adjustable thermostat (As do the the Brentwood KT1960BK, the Igenix IG7270 and the Swan SK27010N), whereas the Russell Hobbs Darwin has this feature. More ...

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Igenix IG7270

Smaller Water Tank Capacity

5 Reasons For for Choosing the Russell Hobbs Darwin

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
