This kettle looks great and is well built.
Terrance
The handle is comfortable which is great because this kettle holds a lot and is a bit heavy full.
Brenda Spooner
It boils water quickly and it's fun to watch.

[ORIGINAL REVIEW]
I recently started drinking a lot more tea, hot cider and hot chocolate. As such, I was boiling a LOT of water on the stove to pour in my mug. Using a sauce pan. Not very efficient.

I realized I needed a kettle to boil water. I spent probably two hours online looking at kettles -- cast iron, copper bottom, aluminum, stainless steel, ceramic coated, etc. Then I realized the real problem was heating up water on my stove top; it uses an enormous amount of power. What I needed was a self contained, energy efficient electric kettle that was made of inert materials so it wouldn't impart any bad taste to the hot water and convenient for pouring/storing the water between heating.

Didn't take me long to hit on the Chef's Choice model. More than I wanted to spend, but otherwise met all my criteria -- tempered glass so I can see the water level/heating state at a glance, easy to get on/off the base, enough capacity, black and stainless design, etc.

I've had this unit for 3 days now and I think it's great. On touch to turn on, few minutes later the water is at a RAGING boil, shuts off automatically or one touch to turn it off. No discernable taste imparted to the water. Easy to pour. Doesn't take up much counter space. Looks great.

In short, a well designed device that does what it's supposed to do and does it very well, thus simplifying my life. In other words, what an "Appliance" is supposed to do.

[UPDATE AFTER ONE YEAR]
Still using this on a daily basis. However, the lid on the top of the unit has stopped latching. The spring clips that latch the lid stick inside the lid. without the lid closed it will boil forever (no steam build-up to activate auto-off. May try to fix it myself. Taking off a star for this reason.

This electric tea kettle boils 1.75 litre of tap water in exactly 8 minutes, then automatically shuts itself off. It is saving us time and cooking fuel, and saves itself from boiling dry and self-destructing. I highly recommend it for those who need a couple pots of boiling water every day. So far(in a month or two), neither the heating plate in the bottom nor the glass pot itself have crusted up with mineral deposits and the water tastes pure and clean.

I bought this kettle to replace a Capresso one, which I liked but it did not last long -- the handle broke off at the top just when garantee expired. I also hoped that this kettle will solve the problem of bad chemical smell apparently coming from the silicon or plastic seal between glass and metal heating element. Alas, this kettle has the same problem as Capresso! I hope smell will disappear as it did eventually in Capresso. Also, I was a bit disappointed that it took 7-8 min. to boil max. water -- longer than Capresso, I thought, but maybe I am forgetting. Another annoying feature -- the package said "fast and quiet," but it was neither. It was quite noisy, much noisier than Capresso. And don't even think to fill this kettle with more water than max -- even that was too much: the boiling water was splashing so violantly, I was afraid it would spill over, but luckily it did not. But the next time I'll use less water than max. With all this said, the kettle did its job, turned off reasonably fast, and pouring was easy -- you don't have to open the lid as in Capresso, and the steam did not come close to my hand. The kettle looks and feels very sturdy if not as elegant as Capresso. So, I hope it will last longer. But the next time I probably will go with a metal kettle, although some of them I saw in stores felt quite heavy even when empty, but at least they probably won't have stinky plastic. So, I would recommend this product, but with caveat, and not to somebody who is concern about plastic and bad smell.

Aug. 26, 2009: I am writing an update on my review: about 6 months later the lid is broke and does not operate properly. It does not open with the push of the button and has to be forced to be closed. I will try to return this product. I would like to take some of the stars back, but for some reason could not change them.

I bought this to replace my Capresso 259.03 H2O Plus Glass Water Kettle, Polished Chrome. I decided to try something new because this one had an idea on how to prevent mineral build up.

Well, while that turned out great, it had 2 problems:

1) IT SMELLS! The water has to pass through a plastic spout and it leaves the poured water with a horrible plastic smell

2) Too complicated for their own good. The lid has a button you push to open it. The capresso you have to (OH NO!!) lift it yourself. The difference: The mechanism for openning the lid on this one broke. I never had a problem with the capresso. And the replacement (I tried another one incase the problems I was having were just a fluke) had a small little filter screen for the water pop out and I couldn't get it back in (I could see this as useful for loose leaf tea).

I really liked no more mineral deposits, but I simply can't live with the smell.

My parents just bought this from the store today. My mom came home as was pleased as punch to have a new toy and make some tea. I'd had a plastic electric kettle in college and loved it. This one looks so cool but as I watched it heat up, I noticed it got much hotter and boiled much longer than the plastic one I was used to. It shut off as it is supposed to and my mom and I poured a cup of tea each and replaced it on the heating mechanism, button still in off position, did not continue to boil water. About 2 minutes later, the glass cracked and we watched hot water leak from just above the metal bottom. We were stunned! Brand new gadget broken after one careful use.

My parents really like this model and think they just got a defective one. I'll update if number two decides to stay intact and functional or not.
