I thought all of those things too. How wrong I was! I've had this bad boy for a day and I can not tell you how stupid I feel for not only doubting its awesomeness but also for not having bought one years ago.
Let's get into the nitty gritty:
It's fully stainless steal on the inside with the cap up top being the only piece near the water that is plastic. There is no funky chemical or plastic smell with this kettle. The heating element is in the base of the kettle, not the inside.
The water level markings, as someone else mentioned, are on the handle side of the inner chamber which really isn't that big of a convenience unless you want to fill it to the max level.'
*edit: I wrote here about the lid no securing and was corrected! The lid DOES lock into place with a snap.
It will automatically turn off as soon as water comes to a boil. I have a small studio apartment and can hear the "click" of this turning off no matter where I am.
You can set the kettle down any which way on the base and it will work, there is no "secured position" that it needs to be. Handle may face any direction.
Another small feature I really enjoyed was the cord to this can be wrapped up INSIDE the base and secured so that while not in use the cord is completely out of the way. You can wrap it around once for a smaller cord or twice to completely hide it. Such a nice feature since I have such a tiny kitchen!
It heats up pretty quickly, faster than water on the stove.
**Update 1/21/2014** This kettle has brewed its last cuppa. I purchased this August 1st, 2012 and today when I went to unplug it the grounding plug stuck in the outlet. It lasted about a year and half. Don't regret my purchase at all. I used this daily to brew many, many cups of tea. I thought about upgrading to a better one but the price jump is so significant I might just buy another one of these.
Update: I found the issue with the kettle continuously boiling. The coating on the wires melted and made contact with each other keeping the kettle from turning off. You can see the attached image. A bit dangerous. They should have extended the heat sheathing to extend to the full length of the wire.
Pros: heats very quickly, easy to clean, all stainless inside (except for the lid). Easy to fill and easy to pour boiling water from it without a spill. The cord is attached to the base and the pot lifts off the base to pour, so the cord never gets in the way.
Con: I always added water to the pot after emptying it, but my new housemate would empty it and then leave. This should be fine, but twice in the past month I came home to find the pot hot and empty and the button in the "on" position. Our best guess is that the automatic shut-off didn't work when the pot was empty. So now we both check for that.
So it's not perfect but it's darned great and I don't expect to find something better in this price range. I'm ordering a replacement KT-1780 today.
UPDATE: I received my new KT-1780 and it's working great. I was curious to see whether it was the pot or the base that failed in the first one, so I planted the old pot on the new base. It worked! Then just out of curiousity I plugged in the old base and put the new pot on it. It worked, too. In fact, the old pot and base now work together.
I noticed in the little manual that we should never pour water into it when it's sitting on the base, as getting the base wet is a bit no-no. I had gotten the base around the time it failed, and I'm guessing that maybe once it fully dried out it started to work again. So I'm taking the old pot to work and have increased my review to 5 stars.
