I bought this kettle strictly for heating water for French press coffee making. Since this kettle is glass there is no chance of it imparting off flavors to the water (then the coffee). I got tired of my metal kettles becoming discolored and rusted, even with proper care. I love the idea of glass for coffee making and this kettle by Medelco is indispensable for coffee making!

It is also easy to clean (dishwasher safe) and looks wonderful. It holds 64 ounces of water when filled to the bottom of the rim, however DO NOT boil that much as it will erupt and shoot steaming water up out of the lid. I feel safe however boiling 50 to 55 ounces of water, which is more than enough for even the largest French presses.

I like to use a probe thermometer to monitor the water temp and stop at 200F, which is the ideal temperature for coffee brewing. This kettle does have a whistling lid that I use (I simply insert the thermometer into the whistling hole). The plastic handle is sturdy and remains cool (remember you can't use HIGH heat and expect the handle to stay cool, I like medium-high heat) to the touch and pouring is easy (the lid must be removed to pour). All the componets are thick and durable (especially the glass). With minimal care this kettle should last a lifetime.

All the features I wanted in a coffee kettle and add to that a fantastic price. Although inexpensive this kettle does not feel cheap. A wonderful value!

I purchased this glass tea kettle for use with my Bodum Chambord 12-cup coffee press. Although I am not a "coffee snob" I do like a very good cup of coffee, and the best coffee (and tea) is made in glass because there is no chance of tainting your coffee with metallic substances or Teflon.

This kettle is easy to use and easy to clean (you can even put it in the dishwasher if you like). It comes with a heat diffuser for use on electric ranges, but I suggest using it even for glasstop ranges as well. The whistle works well, but is a little more throaty than the high-pitch whistle on your standard metal tea-kettle. I use a probe thermometer and place it in the whistle hole, and let the water get between 200-205 degrees Fahrenheit - which is the proper brewing temperature for the best cup of coffee.

The kettle has a clean, retro design and is very well-constructed. Some reviewers have noted that the handle heats-up. I believe this is most likely because they are using the "big burner" on their stove and not the smaller one that is the proper size for the tea kettle (thus the handle is over the outside of the burner and causes it to heat-up). So just make sure to use the smaller, more appropriate-sized burner to prevent over-heating the handle. Regardless, the handle is pretty strong, and the entire kettle is solidly-built. The kettle is made in Germany, according to the documentation that comes with it (though the company is based in the USA).

Yay, no more metallic-tinged water! The pot comes with a wire coil shaped like a 3-leaf clover to place on electric burners, to diffuse the heat contact to the glass. I'm not completely convinced that the breathy whistle qualifies as 'piercingly loud,' but it gets the job done. The lid has a handle to minimize the risk of steam burns while removing it in order to pour (no pouring through the lid), and a shaped pour-spout minimizes drizzling. The "Diner-Flair" style is either cool or slightly disappointing, depending on my mood, but I don't drink straight from the kettle, so 'tis okay! Very good product; made in Connecticut. Medelco Inc. (not to be confused with the medical equipment makers) has a website, too.

This kettle is my favorite! I've had metal stovetop ones, and electric ones that plug into the wall, and this one beats both.

Some people said the glass or the plastic broke easily, but we've had ours for about a month now, used it almost every day, and it's holding up really well. You're not supposed to have the plastic handle over the heat source at all - so just make sure to position it on your stove as such. If you have an electric stove, it comes with a little looped wire to place it on to distribute the heat evenly (since we have a gas stove, I can't tell you whether that works or not). For gas stoves, you just plop it on the range. They recommend not keeping it on the stove too much longer if it's started to whistle, so keep that in mind as well. We live in a 3 story house, and from the second floor you can hear the whistle if you don't have the doors closed. As for cleaning, you can reach in and and lightly scrub away any residue from water - it comes right off (although I have women's hands - the average man's hand might not fit?). I guess I'd also recommend not putting it on the table or other surface without a pad or something underneath it, after it's boiled recently. Just think of it like any other glass cookware. It's not as thick as glass bakeware, but it's not as thin as a glass french press. I wouldn't go banging it around a lot, but it's also not going to shatter if it taps something.

Visually, it's kind of cool to be able to see the water boil. It's also supposedly the best way to make coffee/tea (boiling water in glass). And considering that the price of a glass water boiler that you plug in is really high, 10 bucks is such a bargain. I'm pretty sure the plastic electric water boilers cost more than that. Even if this one broke someday, I'd buy another one. Worth it. Loving it!

*****UPDATE*******

It's January 2014 and this kettle is still holding up strong!!
