Fast and Safe
For those who need hot water fast, the electric kettle is for you. In a few minutes, you can have a whole pot of boiling water for serving French press coffee or tea to friends. You can also make your whole crew happy on a cold day with enough water to make hot chocolate for everyone. Get distracted easily? Most of us do. But thanks to an automatic shutoff feature with boil-dry protection, you never have to worry about a hazard should you walk away and forget.
Enjoy the ease and convenience of cord-free serving with this well designed electric kettle. The detachable cord easily removes from the back of the kettle so you are free to take the kettle to the table for serving.
Most of us have put a kettle on the stove, forgotten, and returned later to a hot, bone-dry pot. Luckily an automatic shutoff function turns off the electric kettle when the water has boiled. This feature keeps your water waiting for you and your kettle from boiling dry. Should the water run out, the boil-dry protection will also turn it off.
Our 1000 watt heating element is located inside the kettle, making hot water quickly. In minutes, you’ll be enjoying your favorite tea or instant coffee.
Like all Proctor Silex products, the 1 Quart Electric Kettle has been tested extensively for durability and performance. During the production phase, each kettle runs through 10,000 cycles before they are approved. You can feel confident all of our products have been Tested. Proven.

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.
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.
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.)
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.Read more ›
