To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
There was a nasty taste with the boiled water both in using tea bags and coffee , also the same with just tasting the water - the water had a 'plastic' smell . I certainly would not recommend and am returning same for a refund. Very disappointing especially from Russell & Hobbs who normally have a good reputation.
We had to return this because, as many other Rusell Hobbs kettles, when it’s full (or even almost full) it leaks from the bottom. In addition it proved impossible to return via home pick-up with Hermes (I wonder why they even offer this choice) resulting in a massive waste of time and almost missing the return deadline.
