This product is for household use only.


As a safety feature, this product is equipped with a grounded plug, which will only fit into a three-prong outlet. Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature. Improper connection of the grounding conductor may result in the risk of electric shock. Consult a qualified electrician if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is properly grounded.


Warning: This appliance is equipped with a tamper-resistant screw to prevent removal of the outer cover. To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not attempt to remove the outer cover. There are no user-serviceable parts inside. Repair should be done only by authorized service personnel.


a) A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risks resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
b) Extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use.
c) If an extension cord is used:

  1. The marked electrical rating of the extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance;
  2. If the appliance is of the grounded type, the extension cord should be
    a grounding-type 3-wire cord; and
  3. The cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the counter top or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over.

Note: If the power cord is damaged, please contact the warranty department listed in these instructions.

Product may vary slightly from what is illustrated.

How to Use

This appliance is for household use only.


  • Remove all packing materials, any stickers and the plastic band around the power plug.
  • To register your product, go to www.prodprotect.com/russellhobbs.
  • Wash all parts as instructed in CARE AND CLEANING section.
  • Select a level surface where this unit is to be used allowing enough space for steam to escape without damage to counters, cabinets and walls.
  • Fill kettle to maximum fill line with cold water. Bring to boil, discard and repeat. Kettle is now ready for use.


  1. Filter (part no. KE7900-01 )
  2. Lid
  3. Lid release
  4. On/Off Switch
  5. Stand


  1. Open the lid.
  2. Fill with at least 1 cup of water, but not above max.
  3. Close the lid. Always close the lid when boiling the kettle.


  1. Put the stand on a stable, level surface.
  2. Plug the stand into the wall socket.
  3. Put the kettle on the stand.
  4.  Move the switch to I.
  5. The light will come on and the kettle will start to heat up.
  6. When the water boils the kettle will switch off.
  7. To switch off manually, move the switch to O, or simply lift the kettle off the stand.


When you lift the kettle, you may see moisture on the stand. Don’t worry – it’s the steam used to switch off automatically, which then condenses and
escapes via vents under the kettle.


  • This will shorten the life of the element. A boil-dry cut-out will switch the kettle off.
  • You must then remove the kettle from its stand to reset the cut-out.
  • Sit the kettle on the work surface till it’s cold.


  1. Unplug the stand, and let the kettle cool before cleaning.
  2. Wipe all surfaces with a clean damp cloth.
