This is a nice little electric tea kettle. It requires that you heat at least 1 and 1/2 cups of water because of the submerged coil. I especially like the detachable cord.

My concerns are two fold. First, the sides do get hot. The handle remains cool, but I would not trust small children to be near it. Second, for the automatic shuttoff to work, the lid MUST be snapped closed. It will continue to boil if the lid is not completely closed (the instructions do state this). This is why I only gave it 4 stars.

It took me 7 minutes to boil (to auto-shutoff) a full pot (4 cups). The minimum (1 and 1/2 cups) took 2 min 50 sec.

It is supposed to be a 1000 watt heating element. Measuring it with a "Kill A Watt" meter, I found it actually used only 850-880 watts.

Update January 2013: After more than 7 years, this kettle is still in use boiling a single cup of water at my work approx 4 times per week. That is over 1000 uses. A few times the detachable cord was not in all the way, and when I turned it on, the on light did not turn on. Simply pushing it in fixed It. The heating element does appear to have some wear, as its got a few pitting marks. This is to be expected. Other than that there have been no problems. I would still rate it 4 stars.

This Electric Kettle is quite simple without any frills. For the price, it does what it claims to do. It boils water quickly , the water level is easy to see and has the auto-shut off feature. I have used it reliably to boil water for tea, oatmeal etc. The water is quite hot, so use caution when pouring it out. The lid , can sometimes be hard to close & open.

I first became hooked on electric kettles when traveling in the U.K. and have kept putting off getting one. This is perfect for my six (O, heavens did I really say six!) cups of tea a day. Faster than the microwave (only because its actually boiled and hot) and no worrys about...did I leave the stove on as it has a brilliant auto shut-off. It even stays plenty warm enough to top off the first cup of tea. I love it, am only sorry it took this many years to indulge my self with such a simple product!

P.S -- Terrific on snowy days when the kids come in and want hot coco...FAST! (Makes one feel like SuperMom for the rare second or two!!! <g>)

UPDATE: This, my original PS electric kettle died a painful death last year following a power surge after eight great years. I bought another and am happy to report its just as good.

I have had this for over a year and it is still going strong! Let the pot stand with the lid open to air before use for about 24hrs to rid plastic smell.

Have used the Bodum electric kettle for travel for years, but decided I'd purchase this Proctor Silex for the office since it was a few bucks cheaper. That was a mistake.

Despite boiling and dumping out the water a half-dozen times, the water itself STILL tasted like "plastic." Ick. As a tea drinker, the quality of the water is key. Also, I found the general shape difficult to handle, the lid was hard to open, and when gently pouring the water it consistently (and dangerously) sloshed out the sides near the spout.

Anyway, I ended up giving this one away and buying an additional Bodum electric kettle for the office. It's working great, just like the 10-year-old Bodum I take traveling. (I think it's also interesting to note that the classic, no-frills, usable design of the Bodum has remain unchanged in the past 10 years - Hey, if it ain't broke, don't 'fix' it.)

So far, so good. My husband and I recently started the NutriSystem diet and some of the meals (e.g. soups, mashed potatoes, rice & beans, mac and cheese) come in these little tubs that require you to add boiling water. We had been boiling the water either in the microwave or in a small pot on the stove. Since we need to boil water more frequently, I thought I'd buy a kettle to speed up the process and I'm glad I did.

PRO's: 1) It boils water quickly; this is a much more efficient and effective way to boil water as the microwave and stove methods took longer. 2) The water is HOT; these particular meals really require the water to be boiling hot to dissolve whatever chemicals they've thrown in there and it does the job really well. We could never get the water this hot in the microwave. 3) It's convenient; we don't need to measure the water, but there's a measuring scale on both sides of the container; the water does have to be above the "min" mark to ensure the heating element inside is fully submerged. 4) It has a detachable cord which makes it safer and easier to clean. 5) I like that you can hear the water coming to a rapid boil and the "click" sound of the on/off lever when it's ready. 6) I like the auto shut-off feature and the light in the lever so you know when it's "on."
CON's: 1) After a couple of uses, the lid does not close easily almost as if the heat warped the shape. This seems to be a common occurrence, but you just need to use a little more force to close it. 2) Although the handle remains cool, the body of the container gets quite hot. 3) The cord is not terribly long; end-to-end it's about 2 feet, 3 inches. But, we have several outlets above the kitchen counter so it's not a problem and it makes for easier storage as the cord is not unwieldy.
