Redmond RK G151 E LED Glass Kettle – Hot stuff!

Used this to replace an ageing kettle. The blue light looks very modern and pleasing on the eye, even in the dark. Although i wouldnt recommend making the tea in the dark. The handle is rubberised so its soft and therefore doesn’t get hot. The lid to fill with water can get warm so be aware of that. Otherwise its a very well built kettle and would be a nice addition to a modern kitchen. The kettle does built up limescale, so id imagine every so often you’ll have to boil some vinegar to get rid that.

7 litre kettle so it was good to get a comparison. This is taller and slimmer so doesn’t take up as much worktop place. Being glass means it also doesn’t look as solid on the kitchen worktop; giving the illusion of more space. The light up aspect is a cool gimic. Not sure of the boiling time but it seems to take ages to begin heating up. Took me a while to work out how to open the top; i was pressing the button as per the instructions but then realised it is press down and allow the lid to come back up with your finger. I’ve boiled the kettle for stock and then had to reboil for more water and the lid does get very warm but not too hot that you can’t touch it. My only real criticism is that it isn’t very stable; when boiling it wobbles quick a bit on the stand.

Lid isn’t great sticks on occasions?. Here are the specifications for the Redmond RK G151 E LED Glass Kettle:

  • 360 Degrees Rotary Power Base
  • Washable Scale Filter
  • Strix Kettle Control System
  • High Power Concealed Disk Heating Element

I’m really happy with this kettle, i wasn’t sure what u would think as i’m not familiar with the brand, but my honest review is that it is as good as any brand i’ve heard of. It looks really slick, is a great size and boils quickly and relatively quietly. It says it doesn’t limescale but i haven’t had it long enough to confirm this.

This kettle looks slick – lots of glass, plus lights which light the water up blue when boiling. I would certainly say that this is best suited to soft water areas due to all that glass. It has a lovely high-grip rubber-feel handle (photo 1). It feels more secure in the hand than any kettle i have had in that respect. The same photo shows the on/off switch beneath the handle. The same photo also shows the graduations on the kettle, from 0. 5 litres (the minimum fill) up to 1. You press a button on top of the lid to open the kettle – the lid flips up (it remains attached) – see photo 2.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • A classy well designed kettle!!!
  • Not so good
  • A good and funky looking kettle!

This is a very stylish looking kettle and also ecologicalit has glass housing which is eco-friendly heat resistant glass so it preserves the natural water properties and avoids formation of scale on itthe top and bottom are stainless steel , the lid pops up by pressing the button on top and the sprout has a remove able filterit has functional illumination of a blue colour that indicates the kettle is on and coming to a boilthe base is 360 rotational with a power cord storageit’s 1. 7l and 2200wa lovely looking kettle that works great and i loved the name redmond as its my sons name.

Very pleased with this elegant kettle. It’s sleek design makes it pleasing to the eyenot as chunky and heavy as many other kettles we’ve owned, and no awful black plastic bits. The metal – not cheap looking chrome – is classy polished rather than brushed. We particularly like the handle, which is covered in a grey’ish silicon, nice to touch and lift. (pictures from other buyers have helped tremendously in opting for this kettle). The plastic filter bit at the spout easily slides to the side – if not needed. It performs as expected, and the base is as stable as on any other kettle. Though when it arrived i noticed that the plastic underneath the base (cable wrap) was not fully presses in at one end leading to a slight wobble (mentioned in one review) which was easily fixed by pressing in. But this did not bother me and i still give it 5 stars because for us it ### stands out from the crowd ### in design and function.

This fascinating piece of kitchenalia is a delight. On the practical side it has a button on the lid that releases it for easy filling and the jug does not have a top handle, which would get in the way. Aesthetically speaking, when you turn it on a blue light illuminates the water and that’s a real treat. As this is an upmarket product is it possible to illuminate in other colours to match kitchen décor?. My other kettle is a russell hobbs that cost about the same but this one is a lot more fun, so it shall be replacing it. It’s more stylish, more practical and much easier on the eye. I’m also very impressed with the packaging, including the tea recipes. However, this is by no means the last word in blue led illuminated kettles and you might be satisfied with a similar one that costs less.

Blue light glass kettles seem to be ‘in fashion’ at the moment. This one is at the top end of the price range and perhaps a little overpriced compared to the competition. It boils quickly, does look cool with the blue light and it pours well. The packaging is frankly a bit weird. A picture of a lady which would have been a standard sort of glamorous sophisticate about 25 years ago. Quite what that has to do with a kettle is a bit beyond me. But i suppose in the end it is what’s in the box and how it performs and the value for money which matters. As i think it is just a tad over priced i have given it four stars.

This is a high-powered, fast-boiling kettle. It looks really cool, lit up when switched on. Good value – a pleasure to use.

I’ve got feeling that it takes a little longer to boil water than my previous kettle. Unfortunately after 2 weeks the lid somehow displaced itself a little to one side and it doesn’t opening smoothly any more.

Turn off the lights and put one the kettle. Usually this would mean you are standing in a dark kitchen listen to some boiling water, but the ‘redmond rk g151 e led glass kettle, 1. 7 litre, 2200 w, silver’ gives off a light show. When boiling, the kettle is blue, it impressed my one year old no end. It is helped that the sides are made of glass so you can see the water and the colours. As a piece of kit, ‘redmond’ have done an excellent job as the build quality is very high. 7 litre kettle holds plenty of water and there is a very nice rubber handle. To open the top you press down on a plastic button on the top that does not get hot. Unfortunately, if you want to boil it again soon after and put fresh water in you will need to press down on the metal element of the lid, that does get hot.

First things first, this kettle looks greatit also holds well and pours really nicely. It looks brill lit up in blue and seeing the water at boiling point with the blue lighting is quite cool to see. The base it sits on is very light and when you sit the kettle in it, it does rock a little, not excessively or enough to come away from it, but you would expect it to be a little more stable on it’s stand especially given that it holds boiling waterthe glass is meant to not limescale up, we will see on that one. After boiling it tends to leave condensation toward the top of the jug, which doesn’t look great, but is one downside of it being see through. As another reviewer says, you can clearly see the metal plate, so if and when that gets limescaled it will be highly visible, i suppose it’s a good way of keeping on top of descaling your kettlethe packaging was quite unusual. The box heavily features the face of a female model, to the extent that it looks like there could have been some beauty product in there rather than a household appliance. They are clearly aiming at a market of fashion conscious people. All in all it is a good kettle. Maybe £30 rather than £40 would be slightly more realistic in pricing or be enough to raise it toward 5 stars.

I’m very pleased with the way this kettle looks and performs. It’s smaller than my old one and looks much neater as it takes up less space on the kitchen worktop. The chrome base, bottom and top look sleek, and the glass is brilliant when lit up with the blue light when it’s on. We live in a very hard water area and i’m just a bit concerned that the glass will soon turn opaque with limescale.

A good design, a little more pot bellied than most kettles, it will suit any decor being glass, silver and grey. The appliance is opened by pressing a button in the middle of the lid which stays cool and lights up blue whilst it is heating the water. The glass is supposed to repel lime scale but, although the element is hidden the bottom metal plate is clearly visible and would be noticeable if it furred up. I obviously haven’t had the kettle long enough to know whether this will happen. 7 litres of water, boils quickly and pours well.

This lovely kettle looks great in almost any kitchen. It boils fairly quickly and with the light inside it is a joy to use. The glass is solid and heavy and the handle does not get hot when the kettle is in use. The base is somewhat lightweight and the kettle does wobble a little on the base. The lid is easy to open – just press it in – but is made from a fairly flimsy plastic. This kettle looks really impressive, especially when in use, with the light on, but i feel it is well over priced. It should be slightly under the thirty pound barrier to make it more attractive – indeed if this was priced at around twenty five pounds i am sure it will fly out the shop. If it were twenty five pounds i feel several other reviewers like myself would give it the full five stars.

This is a fantastic looking, modern kettle made of glass and is entirely see through. I love the fact you can see the water bubbling and boiling and with it lighting up it looks quite spectacular. I’ve had kettles in the past that have had a light but not quite like this one. 7l and isn’t too heavy to hold when full. Handle is far enough away from kettle body to not burn hand on side when holding. Lid is released by a button and boils very quickly. My only concern is with it being glass and see through is that it may become limescaled and therefore look pretty unattractive chalked up – my old metal kettle is pretty scaled up inside so i’m hoping that this ‘limescale resistant glass’ really worksgreat kettle and very funky.

  2. 4.0 out of 5 stars Functional, current fashion glass and blue light, maybe just overpriced
