Russell Hobbs 14899 coffee machine unboxing before review

If you love coffee, then you might be quite particular about both the coffee beans and machine used when brewing the perfect cup! This is certainly how we feel and once you’ve tasted good coffee, it’s hard to settle for anything less.

We’ve been hands-on with the Russell Hobbs 14899 Platinum Grind and Brew Coffee Maker, only for a few days so far, and following our unboxing it didn’t take us long to want to taste what this machine can produce!


Look out for our full review in the next few days, where we’ll explain how we got on, but for now see the unboxing photos on this page to see exactly what’s included and how well it’s packaged.

The Russell Hobbs Platinum Grind and Brew machine grinds fresh coffee beans and also has the ability to use ground coffee. You can produce from 2 to 10 cups, although this obviously varies on cup size and a medium sized Costa cup works out at 2 cups.


In a nutshell, we found setting the machine to the 4 cup level only produced 2 cups with such a size.


The moment you open up the Russell Hobbs 14899 box, this is what you will find inside. The instruction manual on top and secured in place with polystyrene. This is more than adequate with the units weight and packaging holding everything in place.


The Box Contains – once you get everything out, you will find the Glass carafe, one-year guarantee card, instruction booklet, and coffee maker.


Within the glass jar (Carafe) you’ll find a filter, brush for cleaning, and coffee scoop.


This coffee maker shouts build quality without even turning the machine on, as expected though considering this automatic coffee maker is part of the Russell Hobbs Platinum Collection.


The various options for changing coffee settings are immediately visible once unpacked, so you won’t have any problems finding such settings to change coffee strength from light to dark.


As you can see in the unboxing photos on this page, there’s full digital automatic control with a number of buttons all located at the front of the Russell Hobbs 14899.


Just make sure you fill up with the correct amount of water each time for how many cups you’re brewing, again this will be explained in detail with our full review coming soon. Access to water level located towards back of machine, shown in photo below.
