Anyone know if the housing is BPA-free or not? I hear BPA leeches out of plastic at a much greater dose when boiled. So this is critical to know! Anyone know if this product is BPA free or not?

BPA is not used in the manufacture of polypropylene, so if that is the only plastic used in this kettle, there is no BPA to be leeched. Polycarbonate is the most common plastic that has been shown to release BPA, as well as some resins that have been used to line cans.

BPA is bisphenol A- two phenol rings are present whereas polyporpylene is a polymer of propylene. In short, BPA has some oxygens in it and polypropylene does not. Polypropylene has just hydrogens and carbons. Therefore, BPA cannot be created out of polypropylene.

Just becasuse an item is FDA approved doesnt always mean its good for you. You have to do your research to find out if its worth the risk.

very few plastics are BPA leech proof. Even SIGG the famous alum water/fueel bottles got busted with their liner material, as it did in face leech BPA. They have since moved to a new forumla that does not leech BPA. Safest bet is are the stainless kettles, but they do cost quite a bit more.

The manufacturer says this: "The kettle is made out of a plastic material called Polypropylene. This plastic material is FDA approved."
