6 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), however the Brentwood KT1960BK, the Breville VKJ956 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, however the Brentwood KT1960BK, the Breville VKJ956, 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, but the Brentwood KT1960BK scored 85, the Breville VKJ956 scored 84, the Igenix IG7458 scored 85 and the Russell Hobbs Darwin scored 87.

Cheaper by $10

The Swan SK27010N costs $17.54, whereas the Breville VKJ956 is $42.03 and the Igenix IG7458 is $27.65.

$260 Cheaper to Run Over Five Years

Over five years the Swan SK27010N is $22 cheaper to run than the Brentwood KT1960BK, $259 cheaper to run than the Igenix IG7458 and $259 cheaper to run than the Russell Hobbs Darwin. More ...

More Reasonably Priced

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Swan SK27010N was more reasonably priced.

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Swan SK27010N

78% Smaller Water Tank Capacity

The Swan SK27010N is a 0.4 electric kettle. That's 1.3L smaller than the Brentwood KT1960BK, the Breville VKJ956, 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), whereas the Breville VKJ956 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.

Not As Many Stockists

The Swan SK27010N is only stocked by 1 seller, however the Brentwood KT1960BK is stocked by 11 sellers and the Russell Hobbs Darwin is stocked by 4 sellers. 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 VKJ956 and two years older than the Russell Hobbs Darwin. The Swan SK27010N is the same age as the Igenix IG7458.

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Russell Hobbs Darwin

Filtering

The Russell Hobbs Darwin supports filtering, and so do the Brentwood KT1960BK, the Breville VKJ956 and the Igenix IG7458, whereas 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 Russell Hobbs Darwin has a 360° rotational base, and so do the Brentwood KT1960BK, the Breville VKJ956 and the Igenix IG7458, however the Swan SK27010N does 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, the Breville VKJ956 and the Igenix IG7458), but 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 Customers Recommend It

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Brentwood KT1960BK

Bigger Water Tank Capacity

The Brentwood KT1960BK is a 1.8 electric kettle. That's 0.1L bigger than the Breville VKJ956, the Igenix IG7458 and the Russell Hobbs Darwin (1.7L) and 1.4L 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.

Boil-Dry Protection

The Brentwood KT1960BK has a boil-dry protection (as do the Breville VKJ956 and the Igenix IG7458), however 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 Breville VKJ956, the Igenix IG7458 and the Russell Hobbs Darwin), 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 Brentwood KT1960BK has a 360° rotational base (as do the Breville VKJ956, the Igenix IG7458 and the Russell Hobbs Darwin), but the Swan SK27010N does 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 Breville VKJ956, the Igenix IG7458 and the Russell Hobbs Darwin, 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.

More Shops Are Selling It

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

5 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), but the Breville VKJ956 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Brentwood KT1960BK has received a Kagoo Score of 85, however the Russell Hobbs Darwin scored 87 and the Swan SK27010N scored 88.

Older by Over Two Years

The Brentwood KT1960BK is three years older than the Breville VKJ956.
