We analyse some properties of the cohomogeneity one Ricci soliton equations, and use Ansätze of cohomogeneity one to produce new explicit examples of complete Kähler Ricci solitons of expanding, steady and shrinking types. These solitons are foliated by hypersurfaces which are circle bundles over a product of Fano Kähler–Einstein manifolds or over coadjoint orbits of a compactly connected semisimple Lie group.
