With that said nothing annoys and frustrates me more than the taste of a tea being polluted or ruined by the introduction of foreign flavors. I have owned a number of plastic kettles most of which I am sure based on their age contained BPA and even if they didn't often time gave a strange odor or flavor to the tea. I have also had some great stainless pots but recently (past couple of years) had to revert back to the plastic again.
I decided at Christmas 2010 that I wanted to finally get away from these and was originally looking for an all in one solution. You can imagine my delight when I saw the Breville One Touch Tea Maker and jumped at the chance of this. Long story short I got through 3 of them, the first 1 didn't work, the second and third however had a strange odor that seemed to come from the brewing basket lid. I was really frustrated that this didn't work out, especially with so may other great reviews of the product and the cost.
So, gave up with the all in one and went back on the search for a BPA free and ideally plastic free unit. I looked at the Hamilton Beach stainless and about every other kettle Amazon and others had including the Pino (which is the one I was going to go for). The problem was the BPA identification was either non existent or a guess even by the manufacturer !!! This blew my mind.
I found two Toastess models (1 being this one and the other being DLJK-459) and started the research here. I went for this one as the other Toastess (DLJK-459) had a plastic water window which I wanted to stay away from.Read more ›
The filter is NOT mean to be removed!!! If you do remove the filter, the kettle will not shut off automatically.
From Toastess Customer Service:
"The automatic shut-off feature is triggered by the accumulation of moisture by the filter,
which should be installed on the lid so that it rests by the spout when the lid is closed."
I like using this kettle but would prefer that it be all glass including the top or if not glass then stainless steel.
All the plastic parts including the filter are made from polypropylene plastic Relatively safe but I would prefer no plastic at all.
-The kettle is large
-it boils fast
-the bottom is flat
-the sides are schott glass(german pyrex)
-The lid is simple open and shut with no locks to break
-The opening is large enough to get my man hands in and clean it
I use this to boil water, heat soup quickly, boil eggs, make chai. Basically if I want anything to come to a boil quickly this is my goto appliance.
the measurements are in metric.
The manufacturer says that the minimum amount you should boil is two cups. I only need one cup boiled at a time for my tea. I have to carry my water in from another source because I live on the ocean, and while we can bathe in our household water and wash clothes, we do not drink it. Therefore, I cannot waste water at all. I wondered about the "two cups -- one cup" thing. Then I read in another review that the reason the manufacturer recommends two cups is so that enough steam rises when the water boils to trigger the shut-off mechanism in the lid. So it's not that you CAN'T boil just one cup or that it will somehow ruin the pot, it's just that you might not be able to rely on the shut-off mechanism if you do. Well that's no problem at all! With that knowledge in mind, I just put exactly one cup into the pot and plug it in. You know how they say that "a watched pot never boils"? Well they never saw THIS pot! You can easily stand there and manually shut it off (if you want to boil only one cup like me) because it boils UNBELIEVABLY fast. Makes a microwave look like a dinosaur! So I just boil my one cup -- almost instantly -- and then shut it off and make my tea. If you're going to do it like this, don't walk away because the water boils incredibly fast. Just be conscientious.
So far, so good. I love this pot!!
UPDATE: January 15, 2013 - Still going strong! Yep, I still love it!
