Our story began in 1952 when Bill Russell and Peter Hobbs teamed up to transform kitchens across Britain. Their vision was simple: to create products that make home life easier and more enjoyable. The first automatic electric kettle was one of many groundbreaking innovations from Russell Hobbs. Today, we continue to put people at the heart of what we do. By being closer to you, we gain the insight to design things better. From innovative touch control technology to removable, dishwasher-safe components, our products are packed with real solutions that help people enjoy home life – because that’s what matters most. On our 60th anniversary, Russell Hobbs is proud to be the number 1 small domestic appliance brand in the UK. Our reputation has spread across Europe and continues to grow worldwide. We enjoy a cherished place at the heart of homes everywhere.
