Product Description

1-1/2 Liter capacity. Auto shut off with boil-dry protection. Keep warm switch. 360-Degree cordless element. Easy to pour spout. Cord storage. On/off indicator light. Works in 120 Volts.

Using your Electric Kettle

1. Position the power base on a flat, heat resistant surface, as close as

possible to a power outlet.

2. Follow cord routing in power base according to exit patterns. Proper

cord routing will result in the power base laying flat when kettle is

placed in base. DO not operate kettle if power base is not flat. If

power base is not flat, remove kettle from power base and repeat

cord placement instructions.

3. To fill with water, remove the lid. Fill the electric kettle with water

to below the “MAX” water level mark. NOTE: Do not exceed the

“MAX” water level mark indicated on the electric kettle.

4. Plug the electric cord into an electric outlet. Turn the switch ON

by pushing down on the on/off switch. The on/off light will light to

indicate the unit is on. The water will heat and the electric kettle will

switch off automatically when the water boils. NOTE: Ensure the

ON/OFF switch is clear of obstructions and the lid is firmly closed.

The electric kettle will not turn off automatically if the ON/OFF

switch is constrained, or if the lid is left open.

5. Carefully lift the kettle from the power base and pour the hot water.

6. The kettle will not re-boil until the on/off switch is again switched

ON. Wait 25 seconds, allowing kettle to cool down, then switch ON.

Filter removal/cleaning/refitting

Important: The kettle must be switched off, disconnected from the

power outlet and allowed to cool down completely prior to removing

or refitting the filter. Do not use excessive force, as this might damage

the filter or the lid.

1. Empty the kettle and lift lid.

2. Grip the top part of the filter with index finger and thumb and

pull upwards. You may have to hold kettle while removing filter.

Caution: Keep fingers clear of mesh. Pressing into mesh may

damage filter.

3. To clean the filter, rinse under a tap while brushing it gently wit

a soft brush.

4. To refit filter, once again hold filter with index finger and thumb.

Gently push filter back into the kettle until you hear a click. The

filter is now reattached. Gently tug on filter to ensure filter is

attached properly.

5. Rinse out kettle with fresh water and it’s ready for use.

Care and cleaning of your electric kettle

1. Mineral deposits in tap water may cause scale deposits to form

inside the electric kettle after frequent use. To remove this scale

build-up, fill the kettle with a solution of 3 cups of white vinegar

and 3 cups water. Let sit overnight.

2. Empty the vinegar solution from the electric kettle. Remove any

stain remaining inside by rubbing with a damp cloth.

3. Fill the electric kettle with clean water. Place kettle on power base

and bring to a boil, then discard water. Repeat and the electric kettle

will be ready to use.

4. The electric kettle will not operate again until the on/off switch is

pressed downward.

5. Always remove kettle from power base and disconnect power base

from electrical outlet before cleaning. Do not immerse kettle or

power base in water or other liquid.

6. The outside of the electric kettle can be wiped with a soft damp cloth.

NOTE: Never use any chemical, steel wool, or abrasive cleaners to

clean any part of the kettle, including the power base.

I bought this kettle to replace a plastic kettle that I've had for years. Concerns over plastic in contact with boiling water convinced me to buy a stainless kettle. There is a little plastic in the water with this kettle from the water level indicator but it is greatly reduced from my all-plastic version.

I bought this at Target because I wanted to check out the inside of it before purchase; there were no pictures online which is why I posted some at the top of this page.

It is 1500 watts and boils water fast. Also has a keep warm feature which is something I don't need. I have had no leaking water problems.

The opening is small but I can get my bottle brush inside to clean with no problem. The mesh filter pops right off. If you develop scale, just pour in a cup or so of vinegar, add some water & let it sit for an hour. I have very hard water so I do this every other week. I fill the kettle from my refrigerator water tap because that water is filtered. I had tried another pot before buying this one but I could not use my refrigerator tap; water ended up on the floor. This kettle has a nice flared spout that makes filling easy. I remove the mesh strainer when filling. I'm contemplating removing the metal bar that holds the strainer because I don't really need the strainer. The strainer hangs securely on that bar; no clicking anything to lock it. It's really simple/smart.

You'll see my little back dots on the water level indicator. (I'm referring to my photo above.) I added those with a Sharpie so I know how much water I need for everyday coffee making. I use the pour-over method to brew coffee directly in to my carafe. I use more water on the weekend, less during work week & the least when it's just me.

I read reviews for many electric kettles and in the end chose the great Oster 5965. It had no reviews at all, but had all the features that were important to us:

Concealed Element
Short cord/cord keeper
Auto-off, no whistle
Boil dry protection
Mesh/screen pouring filter
Water level indicator

This kettle boils water quickly and my favorite feature is the Keep Warm button. Especially helpful if you tend to get sidetracked like I do. Just don't forget to turn it off! It pours neatly, looks nice on the counter, and is great when you are cooking and need boiling water. The on/off switch is a rocker button and the Keep Warm is a push button. These two were a plus for me as they are sturdy to the touch. I felt the spring type switch on the Aroma (a contender) felt flimsy and that the time would come when it would not 'catch' in the on position.

The only con is the opening for adding water is rather small. I was concerned about cleaning it, however there are directions in the manual for cleaning it with a mix of white vinegar and water, allowing it to sit overnight to remove any scale buildup.

If you have read reviews of other products where people complain that the kettle gets hot, this one is no different. But what do you expect from a steel kettle that is full of boiling water?? It's no different than if it had been sitting on the stove except that you didn't have to heat up the element and have the residual heat from the stove heating up your kitchen.

I paid $40 at Target and I recommend this Oster Brushed Stainless Steel Kettle.

The Oster stainless steel electric kettle lives up to its reputation in our household. We replaced our old and trusted plastic Oster electric kettle of many years good service, because we became concerned with boiling water in plastic which can leach toxins. The new design is beautiful to look at and has the added advantage of a "keep warm" feature the older model did not have. It is a bit less easy to read the water gauge, but you get used to it. It still boils water very fast, keeps it warm if you so wish and has no nasty taste or smell like so many other models you read about. It is heavenly for a tea drinker like me who drinks as many as ten cups a day!! Perfect for a fast oatmeal, instant coffee, instant soup, jello, adding boiling water when cooking soup and much more. At your finger tips, withing a couple of minutes are 1.5L of fresh boiling water. It turns itself off, swivels 360degrees. Love our Oster. Very well built and we expect to enjoy many years of good service like we did the previous Oster model.

I loved this kettle as the other reviewers did but at six months it started leaking thru the bottom. I don't know if this is a design flaw or a fluke.

UPDATE: I contacted customer service and was sent a new kettle with a slightly different design but the same item number. The design flaws appear to have been addressed and this one has had no problems even with daily use. We've already purchased another for my daughter at college.

UPDATE 2: The replacement kettle is now over a year old and still working great. Whoever gets up first turns it on and it is on most of the day almost everyday with several refills. Upgrading to 5 stars!

Number one, the price was irresistible and it is true stainless, not cheap plastic looking stainless At the time of this writing it was $30 or so. I am so tired of sticking a measuring cup in the microwave to create hot water - this is such a time saver. I use this mainly to heat water for:

1) French Press Coffee
2) Tea
3) Soups
4) Grits and Oatmeal - Instant Type
5) Unexpected Entertaining
6) The new Apple Cider Powder Mixes
7) Hot Chocolate

And the list goes on. I use only distilled water in the unit which will help the life of the unit by a few years and with any luck the life of me.

It does heat up fast - only two minutes when it was half full and that may be incredibly valuable if electric is being rationed because I live in hurricane alley and have been out of electric weeks at a time. Being able to "borrow" a few minutes of someone's generator definitely comes to mind. This is also a great gift for someone already in such a situation. I also love this appliance for "boil water" advisories which we are seeing more and more of in any state in the nation. So, yes, I would not worry about distilled if I really need water during a boil water advisory and I would use this kettle.

I actually bought this because I will be away from home for a few months...and in "camp" like conditions. Luxuries will be few and so this is one of my picks to be with me.

For anyone in snow conditions this unit has to be a total necessity. I will have this with me when I go on a two week ski trip this upcoming holiday season. In fact I will plan a lot of ski meals around this kettle.
