Now I realized this product was manufactured pretty poorly. It may cause a fire hazard. If you already bought it, please be careful.
This kettle has been great. Very simple to use and heats water quickly. Been using for about one month now and it has been great. I’ve found bodum products to be very good and this kettle was no exception to this trend.
Each one has suddenly and inexplicably stopped working!
I have asked Bodum for a credit since I obviously do not want a fourth unit that is only going to fail, and they are refusing.
Bad product, bad company, stay away.
This is what I love about it: 1. It's lightweight and heats water up quickly. 2. The kettle is separate from its base so you aren't constrained by the cord. 3. It's small and doesn't take up a lot of room. 4. It's nice looking, very sleek 5. It heats up 17 ounces of water at a time, more than enough for a standard mug. 5. It's held up to a LOT of traveling and abuse and still works perfectly.
Here are some negatives: 1. Cord is REALLY short. You may need an extension cord. 2. Keep an eye on it. Sometimes it forgets that the water is boiling and won't automatically shut off. 3. If you're boiling water for more than 1 person, the capacity can be too small - get the bigger version.
It's a great kettle for frequent travelers or anyone who has a small space. Nice gift for someone with a dorm room or small apartment.
Kettle disconnects from powered base for easy pouring and cleaning. Lid is designed to stay in place and tilts at the center on two small posts to open and fill. This would make cleaning difficult if mine lasted long enough to need cleaning.
Unfortunately one of my pivot posts broke off the lid on second or third filling when I released the lid lock switch. I had not previously removed the lid or stressed the posts in any way prior to the failure. Whether this is just an unfortunate event or a material and design flaw is unknown. Unfortunately this made it pretty much impossible to use the lid to cover liquid or keep heat in while boiling water.
It was still a good kettle, but it was let down by flaws that plagued a fancy design. “KISS,” I always say!
Top international reviews
Cons: 1) as others mentioned, the top is finicky, the small lid is fixed (a good thing) rotating around an axis in the middle and that leaves only a very small opening for adding water to the kettle - it's hard not to spill; the tiny deposit filter gets clogged up very easily; you have to pour water out very slowly or it spills around the edges of the spout. 2) the fill line is only visible on one side (the wrong side if you're left-handed) yet going slightly over the max line will cause two problems: first boiling water will spill out because the unit is so tiny, and second, the auto-shutoff mechanism won't work 3) as others mentioned the on-off button often wont' stay in the "on" position. 4) you cannot rub off mineral deposits at the bottom because the opening is too small for a hand, hence you must do all the cleaning with vinegar (an environmental pollutant and it requires a lot of rinsing to get rid of that smell).
Conclusion: Perhaps the 1 L/34oz size has more of the advantages without the aformentioned problems.
EDIT Jan 11, 2018: The on/off switch will not stay on. I returned the unit and had a quick refund from Amazon.
A few uses in (about 5 or so?) I noticed what seemed to be strings of melted plastic on the spout. The kettle's spout had not been adequately cut meaning the excess was melting. Very easy to fix with a utility knife but I definitely should NOT have had to do it in the first place.
Ergo, 4/5 stars
This is actually a re-purchase of our first Bodum Kettle, which is the reason I'm giving this 4 stars. We had to replace our first Bodum Kettle after about a year, because one of the plastic parts that assist with the lid flipping open broke, meaning that the lid was not secure and kept falling into the water, which was unsafe. Generally, I wouldn't gripe about this kind of wear-and-tear, I just expect this kind of design to last more than one year.
I remember researching this kettle before purchasing it and reading about a burning smell that users associated with the plastic heating up, but we honestly never encountered that problem with our first or second bodum kettle.
Beautiful Design (not a big fan of typical electric kettle designs or stove-top kettles)
Space saver (great for our small kitchen due to small circumference)
Really easy to use
Heats water very quickly
As above, just the fact that a part snapped after a year that needed to be replaced. Otherwise, I love this product.
The internal thermostat turns the machine “off” before it boils... waits a couple minutes... and then restarts itself to boil again. This happens every time — it has now taken to stopping-starting twice for every pot boiled.
Para mi uso individual y calentar el agua para el café esta genial, yo recomiendo la de 500 ml para los que no tienen tanto espacio en la cocina, el diseño es super elegante, el único inconveniente es la tapa, se balancea ósea es fija, hay que atinarle a la entrada cuando la llenas, tampoco se puede quitar para lavar bien, fuera de eso es perfecta ya que hierve los 500ml en 2 minutos.
con el hervidor de agua en 2 mins está lista el agua para poder preparar mi café.
Cuando la lleno a su máxima capacidad creo que tarda 5 mins o menos.
Me gusta mucho que no necesito desconectar el hervidor para llevarlo a la mesa y el diseño es muy elegante
