I really like this product, especially for the affordable price. Here are the positives & negatives I've experienced ...

Pros:

1. Boils water FAST and it's quiet too. Perfect for the office.

2. Great safety features. You really want a cordless unit for easier/safer filling and pouring, and the auto-shutoff and on/off indicator light do work exactly as described. Also, the spout has a mesh shield and a plastic guard that prevent water from splashing out while boiling. Overall, no need to worry about accidents.

3. The plastic view-window with volume markings is on both sides of the unit, so you can see the water level from any angle.

4. Convenient storage: Relatively small footprint, and the cord wrap on the base, minimize counter clutter.

Cons:

1. It takes about 2 cups of water to cover the heating element, which can be less convenient if you just want a cup of tea.

2. The cord is only about 3 feet long. Fine for kitchen counters, but less so if you're using your office wall outlets/power strips.

3. The lid on mine sticks on one side, so I have to push to snap it into place (might just be mine though).

Overall I really like this kettle's quality & convenience. You can find pricier ones, but for the money, this one has all the necessary features and then some.

I absolutely love my toastess kettle. The water boils fast, there's an automatic shut-off, and being cordless, I can heat up water and then set it on the table for dinner. We use ours to help boil water faster for pasta, for soups, for tea, and for hot cocoa. I'm planning on getting one for my mother for Mother's Day because it has really taken the stress out of putting the tea water on in the morning and forgetting about it (we're both famous for this). I probably would have burned the house down by now with a regular kettle. This is definitely a keeper!

Although one of the Product Features (as of today) says "Concealed stainless-steel heating element resists corrosion and scale build-up," it is not true. The heating element does look like stainless steel, but the whole thing is entirely visible when you open the lid and look inside the kettle. Also, although it is cordless, the electric contact between the base and the kettle is not located in the center of a round base but on the side of the oval base. I have to pay attention to the location of the contact before I dock the kettle back to the base.

If I could give half a star I would.

I had this unit for exactly 93 days and it just wouldnt turn on one day.

I used it less than 3 times a week. There are several drawbacks to this unit. It draws ALOT of electricity to run it. I could use the same socket to run anything else while this on. Water gurgles/spits out of the spout while its boiling and I have gotten burned. The spout is also poorly designed, the water doesn't come out in an even stream, it goes where it chooses and even out of the seam of the lid. The heating element is exposed inside the pot and makes it almost impossible to properly clean. The water does get really hot in a short amount of time but its not worth it.

I just bought the Braun WK200B about a week ago. It is everything this kettle isn't and so much more. Read the reviews on that one before you buy this one. Its a better choice all around. Save the shipping costs, time & headache, just buy the Braun first and pass this one up.

I can't understand why these kettles are not more widespread here in the USA, as they are everywhere else. They are the ultimate in convenience. The kettle lifts off from the base, so it can be carried anywhere without bothering with a cord. The heating coils in the kettle keep the water hot for quite a long time, so for a second cup of tea one only needs to hit the 'on' button and wait mere seconds for the water to boil again. The kettle shuts off automatically when the water reaches a boil. These kettles typically need replacing after two to three years when the heating elements wear out, but they get a continuous workout at our house, so it's understandable.

I regret i decided to save $$ and bought this kettle.
Problems:
- the unit feels cheap
- the heating element is not concealed, as the description leads you to believe. Instead it is a big coil, and you must pour enough water to coat it every time.
- after a few month of use the top opens only with some straggle
- Autoshut off does not work. So many times i found red hot coil inside an empty unit, who know how much electricity this waists!

My grandfather used to say "I am not rich enough to buy cheap things", I'll try to remember it better next time.

This is a very good kettle. I used it for a while, but it was too heavy for my arthritic hands. i had to buy another one, which is lighter to handle. But this one is great for anyone who can pick up something a little heavy, by the time you put water in it. MAK, PA

We ordered this as an exact replacement of the old one.

Eventually the locking led breaks causing it to overheat.

(I gave it a 5-star rating because it does last for quite some time
and we can't expect it to last forever!)
