UPDATE: (June 2008) My second one of these has just stopped working. I still love the design of this kettle, and maybe 5-6 years is not a bad lifespan, but . . . I think I might give the Breville kettle a try this time. Will report back!
I use mine a minimum of twice, more commonly three times a day and am very, very happy with it. As mentioned in other reviews, having the actual heating elements under a solid bottom of stainless steel definitely prolongs the life of the appliance--the heating elements do not get caked with minerals. The best part for me, however, is the placement of the handle which makes pouring the boiled water both safe and easy for someone with hand and elbow problems--it has superior ergonomics.
I have high mineral content well water. Since I pour the boiled water into a thermal caraf (when not into a tea pot), I often use almost all the boiled water the Chef's Choice holds, which results in an accumulation of minerals on the stainless steel interior bottom. As a natural way of removing the sediment, I occasionally boil potato pealings in it then let it sit (with the pealings) over night. This is a trick I learned from someone who works in agriculture for the World Food Program. It works great.
Whoever designed this kettle put some thought into it. First of all, I love that the base and the kettle are separate to allow filling and pouring without a cord in the way. Also, the fact that if shuts off when the water has come to a boil is very convenient. There is a light to indicate it is on (even if it is dark you can tell if it is off or on, that comes in handy) and when the switch moves to the off position it makes a clicking sound that also lets you know the water is ready. Last, but certainly not least, this kettle pours beautifully. The side mounted handle distributes the weight nicely and the spout is truly free of drips! There is a metal piece fitted over the inside of the spout that controls the pouring water and I think that is what keeps it from dripping (but the kettle can pour either really fast or really slow...the metal piece doesn't interfere with that).
At first, I thought I was going to have a problem with the lid because it takes a pretty good tug to get off. But this is no longer an issue after I tipped the hot kettle over to far one day and none of the water leaked from the top. It's a safety precaution and it does work! You can tip the whole thing over and water is only going to come out of the spout. I'll take the tight fitting lid over burns any day.
One last thing, for any other tea snobs out there (like me!), only stainless steel will come in contact with the water. There is no plastic in it that can taint the taste of the water.Read more ›
