Russell Hobbs has launched a special edition K65 anniversary model to celebrate 65 years of the world’s first automatic shut-off kettle and is available to buy from independent electrical retail partners.
In 1955 Russell Hobbs launched the K1, ‘the kettle that watches itself’, followed by the K2, a more refined version with an even quicker boil in 1960. The K2 went on to be the nation’s best-selling kettle for over two decades, topping wedding gift lists across the country. In honour of the original K models the brand is now launching the K65 (RRP €74.99 ) to mark 65 years since this iconic model first hit the shelves.
The stunning new kettle is modelled on the original K-series and includes instantly recognisable features like a brushed stainless-steel finish, the same distinctive body shape and sleek black handle with red on/off button, making it the perfect option for retro and modern kitchens alike. The new K65 kettle has been updated to meet the demands of modern life, with a slim 360 power base, a perfect pour spout and fast boil technology, boiling one cup in under 40 seconds.
The K65 will be available in a classic brushed stainless steel, embossed with the Russell Hobbs logo and a unique serial number.
