Customer Reviews

Very fast to heat, and extremely easy to clean.
Ken Sann
It worked fine during the first 6-month but after that it stopped working properly.
VJ
The chemical smell and taste are still present.

I ordered this kettle specifically to avoid heating up water in plastic. However, this kettle emitted a foul chemical odor that also transferred to the water. I boiled it a few times plus tried the water/vinegar suggestion in the brochure but nothing seemed to help. I decided that I didn't want to take the risk of drinking these unknown chemicals so I'm returning it - it's not worth the risk. I can't figure out if it's coming from the "stainless steel" bulb (that feels like plastic to me if you tap on it) that covers the heating element or the plastic seal between the glass & the bulb. Plus the lid has a stong odor too & that is plastic covered in "stainless steel".

My biggest rave is the Amazon.com customer service. I fell in love with the look of this kettle and found the best price on Amazon.com (with free shipping!) When it arrived, it only worked if the kettle was oriented one way on the base -- when it boiled, the water dribbled on the cord. Called Capresso Cust Svc -- 1st person said, it's supposed to do that. After another week, it got worse. Capresso would replace it if I paid it's shipping back to them. Called Amazon.com, got another in the mail days later, post-paid shipping back the first one to them. Wow! This kettle works just fine. Very rapid boiling of water, no complaints about anything. To keep the glass and that silver dome shiny, you do need to do the vinegar thing every now and again. Couldn't be happier.

Color Name: Polished Chrome
I bought this kettle because I loved the glass carafe and that I could see the contents of the kettle and I really liked the overall design. But I was completely disgusted with the results!

I always use filtered water for cooking and drinking because I am quite sensative to tastes and odors in my water. The filtered water I put in this kettle tasted FINE, but after the boiling routine was complete, the water smelled and tasted like a swimming pool. I took a sip of tea I made from this kettle and spit it across the room (a la Kramer)! The most foul chemical smell and taste I have ever known. I cannot believe that anyone else using this kettle, or in fact the manufacturer, would not notice it. I washed the kettle with soap and emptied it after each use, but even after a week, the same foul contamination was occuring as a result of heating the water in this kettle. If I left a small amount of water in the kettle for even an hour, I could watch a thick chemical buildup forming on the chrome heating dome that I could wipe off with my finger, like a BAD science project.

I don't know what is wrong with this thing, but it is truly scary. I am warning all consumers to stay away from this chemical hazzard producer and find another way to heat your water!

Note: If you want to better understand the problem, walk into any Bed Bath & Beyond or Linens & Things store and sniff the inside of the carafe they have on display. There is clearly something wrong with the materials used in the manufacturing of this item. It CAN'T be safe.

I had mine for about 8 months and then the handle fell off while I was pouring a full kettle of boiling water into a teapot. I was lucky not to be badly burned. The handle is held to the lid with two small screws that are screwed into plastic. It looks cool, and maybe mine was somehow defective, but watch out (especially if you have small kids who might be in the way of the boiling flood).

I recently purchased this kettle. First problem: when you fill the pot to the indicated full line and boil the water, it dripples out the spout. Before using, I boiled 4 pots of water and rinsed it, even boiling an additional pot of water with some white vinegar and then two more plain pots of water - and I could not get the discernable odor out of the pot and out of the water. This pot has a nice design but poor function. Also, the 'stainless' is NOT stainless - it is most definetly plastic. I have returned this kettle.

Have had this for a month now and it works great. Heats fast, the level lines are nice ( not hard to see for me ), no dripping problems. But the silcone gasket around the heating element is still imparting a bit of an off taste and releases a plasticky smell. It's gotten a bit better but I still don't like it. The 'chrome' appears to be chromed plastic, didn't see that mentioned in description or reviews.

I recently purchased this teapot after viewing all of the others available on Amazon and reading all of the reviews. I was very happy with this purchase. This Capresso not only looks really cool, it heats up twice as fast as my old kettle, and it actually holds more. I like that this one has a glass kettle and a covered heating element. The little blue light on the handle is nice, but I don't notice it much. Yes, it would be nice to have the cup and ounce lines on the side of the pot rather than on the back by the handle, but I don't really use them much. I just "eye" it. It also has no "ding" when the water boils, which was kind of nice on my old one, but not really necessary.

Unfortunately, after one month of use, the kettle just stopped working. I could not longer turn it on. I called the company and after a long wait to the customer service line, I left a message on their machine. They called me back the same day and had me send the machine back to the company to either fix or replace. I received a new machine within 2 weeks. I was surprised by the good service. My new machine has been working well since it was replaced.
