I have used electric kettles for many years and they are the best way to boil water -- they are faster and more energy efficient than the stove-top kettle and you don't risk burning them when you forget that the kettle is on the stove. My old electric kettle died and I started looking for a new one.

An electric kettle is a simple device and could be made to last for many (i.e., at least greater than 10 years). Unfortunately, manufacturers are making things as cheaply as possible and charging premium prices. You will find as you read the reviews for most kettles that people complain about the quality of their construction and their correspondingly low life times.

An electric kettle should boil water quickly, should be easy to clean, should (in my opinion) be stainless steel throughout and should not have features that are obviously made to break. I don't mind if the kettle gets hot to the touch - I just use the handle to touch it just as I would a stove top kettle. This Krups kettle does boil water quickly and it is fairly easy to clean (and does get hot). This said it still has flaws.

1) The inside top inch(or so) of the kettle is made with plastic. The lid is also plastic and must be aligned just right before it will properly fit. Why couldn't the lid be stainless steel and just fit on in any direction as with most stove-top kettles?
2) The lid also has a plastic mechanism for opening the plastic spout cover. This mechanism is annoying and is made in such a way that it will break in a few years leaving a spout that stays shut.
3) The water level indicators are made of plastic and run the length of the kettle on both sides (as you can see in the picture).

I always used a stove-top kettle, but I kept hearing how much people love these little electric kettles. So after shopping around a bit I settled on this one because of its appearance and mostly metal construction. The metal construction was a must for me, as I dislike the taste of plastic in my water. The stainless steel finish goes well with the rest of my kitchen, and it really is one of the more attractive kettles when you see it in person compared to others.

I'm definitely glad I bought it, it works wonderfully. As advertised, it boils water very quickly. It is fairly quiet when it boils, and shuts itself off (very much unlike my former stove-top kettle!). It holds plenty of water for a large pot of tea or coffee. I like the construction of the lid, which stays put when heating / pouring, but is easily removed with a slight turn.

Not sure what all this fuss is about regarding burning oneself on the pot. It is a metal kettle that boils water, you should expect it to be hot! Maybe I'm just used to a stove-top kettle, but if you hold it by the handle like a normal person you won't be in any danger of hurting yourself.

Pros:

It looks good and it works as advertised

Cons:

It's very loud.

It takes a long time to turn off after the water's already boiling.

The outside gets scalding hot when the water boils (just like boiling water in a metal pan).

The filter in the spout keeps falling out when emptying the kettle for refilling.

Was disappointed in the quality of this Krups Electric Kettle. The base is made from cheap plastic and the top portion of the kettle contains much plastic as well. I purchased a Breville electric kettle a few months prior to this purchase and will be sending this Krups back and getting another Breville. Some company needs to come up with a totally stainless steel model (lid and all). Breville model is more elegant, better design, and has less plastic exposed to boiling water and steam.

This is a wonderful kettle. It heats quickly, looks good, and is easy to clean. It's quality is excellent. The filter in the spout is a nice feature. I hesitated to buy it because of the price, but no regrets. You will be happy with the purchase.

When I was looking for an electric kettle a couple of things were important to me - material, size, and wattage.

MATERIAL: I do not heat food up in the microwave in plastic containers for concern about possible leaching of chemicals - I always heat in glass. So how is boiling drinking water in a plastic kettle any different? I couldn't totally decide, but I did decide to be on the safe side and get one out of metal to avoid possible plastic risks... When our old plastic kettle finaly died, I wanted to make sure I replaced it with a metal one. This one is great!

SIZE: The volume is the standard size (I don't think they get any bigger than this really).

WATTAGE: I think this is also the top wattage available. (The higher the wattage the quicker the water will boil.) I looked at all the ones I could find - also on other websites and I'm convinced I made the right choice with this kettle.

I was initially concerend about a review that said the body gets hot - but silly me, of course it gets hot - just like a pot on the stove does, too. But it's easy not to touch the metal (the handle works just fine and there's no risk of burning yourself that way) so don't worry about that.

I also use this to heat not only water for tea, but also the water before I put it in the pot for making noodles or soups or anytime I'm going to be cooking with hot water - it is SO much quicker than just trying to boil the water on the stove (and more energy efficient, too!)

I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because there are a few slight "issues" I have with the design (like the filter screen that will fall out if you tip the kettle totally upside down without the lid on (yeah, why would I want to do this?
