Customer Reviews

It boils water very quickly.
Kimberly M. Eaton
This only lasted eighteen months until it started leaking, although it has had quite heavy use - it is probably used at least 10 times a day, every day.
Alison
It looks great and works good.

I have waited more than 3 months to review this tea kettle because I have bought so many in the past and written a rave review after just a couple weeks, only to have it break on me shortly thereafter. In fact, I'm still a bit afraid that if I write this review I will jinx my good luck with this tea kettle.

I bought the Krups kettle because of it's name, because I've heard that Krups products are good quality. It was a bit more expensive than other tea kettles out there, but after having bought 3 cheap ones in the past couple years that have broken down on me, I decided it was worth it to spend a bit more.

The design of the Krups kettle is pretty slick and it works very well. I've had problems in the past with the pop-up lid breaking, but this one has a nice smooth design that seems impossible to break. You can see the water levels through the semi-transparent blue and it has a nice swivel base. The water boils quickly, just as one would hope.

The only negative about this tea kettle is that you can only lift it by the handle after it has boiled because the metal part gets very hot. It took some getting used to for me because in the past, with my plastic kettles, I would sometimes pick it up with two hands, one on the handle and one on the kettle itself, so the first few times I used this one I burned myself. However, by now I've gotten used to it and don't think about it at all.

There was a "new kettle taste" in the water that lasted a bit longer than with other kettles, but of course after more than 3 months it is totally gone.

I hope this kettle will last me a long time! I'm very pleased with it and would recommend it.

Have been using this kettle for about six weeks now and we are very pleased with it. The appearance is nicely finished and the blue light effect when heating is appealing. It has enough capacity to fill a 10 cup teapot and pours nicely without spilling. More importantly, it is quick to bring water to a rolling boil and quiet. Definitely worth the slight premium price over other products.

We bought this kettle because of the Krups name and we liked how it looked. We had it for about 2 weeks and the top started rusting. A kettle to boil water and the top was rusting?!! We sent it back.

I bought this about a year ago to replace my Braun. Everything the reviews say are true, it's gorgeous and stylish. The lid does fall off sometimes, but it doesn't bother me. The water tastes great. It does leak if you overfill it. And because it is meta;, it does get very hot, so you have to be careful not to touch the body but only the handle. But this is true for all of the stainless pots. One fine day, it just stopped working, and it was not abused in any way. (The contact between the base and the pot stopped working). My conclusion, this is poor quality and I don't recommend buying it. Too bad! So beautiful!

We bought this product in March and immediately one of the two blue lights shorted out. In about four months it began to rust inside (bottom) and is almost destroyed now.

Poor quality, poorly made and designed. I will not buy Krups again.

Not only elegant but, well designed - filling the kettle is a breeze with the nifty lid opening. Given the last Krups appliance I am hoping for years of use. Only disappointment - made in China (what isn't). Update leaked from the bottom after 12 months - bought another and it leaked after 6 months. Will contact Krupps to see if there is a fix for this obvious design flaw - to late for the warrenty.

I bought this Krups kettle to upgrade from an electric plastic kettle thinking stainless would be healthier and assuming Krups would be good quality. After approximately a year it has started leaking from the bottom of the kettle. I have used electric kettles for 30 years and never had anything like this happen before. Am assuming it rusted through on the inside. Very disappointed!
