I bought this kettle in September, 2015 and it failed in December, 2015. The one-year warranty is USELESS. When I called for troubleshooting, they shipped me a replacement for the base. The replacement took almost a month to arrive, and was dead on arrival. It may have been defective, but most likely, the kettle was at fault. When I called to request that they replace the kettle, I discovered that (1) I'd have to ship the kettle back to them first, and (2) I'd need to enclose an extra $15 payment to cover Cuisinart's return shipping expense for the replacement unit...because the kettle only has "a limited warranty." So (counting $15, plus my own packaging and shipping cost) I'm being to told to expend at least $30 in order to get a replacement for a unit I had for three months--a unit that has never been abused or mistreated in any way.
This is a PREMIUM product. It should have a PREMIUM warranty policy--just ship me the replacement, place a hold on my credit card until I return the bad one in the replacement packaging, etc. And the manufacturer pays for shipping both ways. This is common practice for other high-end products (and most Amazon returns), and I think it's inexcusable that Cuisinart takes an approach that seems DESIGNED TO AVOID having to honor their warranty.
The representative was polite and professional throughout, but could not allow me to speak to her supervisor "because of the heavy call volume."
She gave me the runaround; it's not her fault, she's just doing her job. Like any employee, she has to carry out her employer's policy. But Cuisinart's policy in INEXCUSABLE; it's not worth paying to replace the unit, and I'm never buying any Cuisinart product again.
DO NOT BUY THIS UNIT IF YOU EVER EXPECT TO NEED SERVICE UNDER WARRANTY!!
=== Part 1: Why to get an variable temperature electric tea kettle ===
For anyone who drinks tea (unless it is exclusively black) or makes coffee outside an all-in-one, department store drip-brewer, this is absolutely indispensable. Though most recipes have been built to use only room-temp or boiling water (since those are the only temperatures to easily reach with consistency), more cutting-edge cooking as well as coffee/tea prep requires more finesse. Unless you're willing to watch the proverbial pot boil with a thermometer in hand, this is the only way to heat water on such occasions.
=== Part 2: Concerns / questions raised (and/or) left unanswered by other reviews ===
I won't go into detail about well-established pros and cons covered in other reviews, but I would like to make clear a few things I couldn't determine from reviews/specs before I bought mine:
("Hot sides/surfaces"): Yes, the sides get hot, and yes, it is startling to touch the metal outer wall when the water is hot. However, according to my IR thermometer, the surface never gets much above 130 degrees. Sure, that's hot and you should avoid contact, but for comparison many people's hot water heater is set this high and (as validated by my rather stupid intentional touch test) an accidental touch is highly unlikely to cause even a mild first-degree burn unless you actively fight the reflex to instantly pull away.
("Construction / Material touching the water"): True, the sidewall level indicator and the "frame" of the removable spout filter are made of plastic (the BPA content of which I have not conclusively proved or disproved) but the former is part of a small compartment which only a small amount of water reaches and which has very limited circulation, and the latter is removable. The entire rest of the construction that touches water is steel. Since hot water dissolves BPA from plastics, and aluminum's role in neurodegenerative disease is unclear, iron/steel and glass are pretty much the only materials I trust completely for food storage/preparation containers. In this regard, this kettle is the safest option I've found.
=== Part 3: Operational test data ===
As a tea fanatic with a minimum of four kinds of tea always on hand (black, red/oolong, green, and white) and general geek, I have meticulously measured the actual temperature of the water in the kettle for the various settings. I share them here in hopes they will provide a useful operational profile for buyers interested in temperature variability. (Bear in mind that the container you pour into will greatly affect the water temperature, so remember to preheat it by filling it with hot water right before use.)

I know this is half generally-relevant bullet points, and half geek-oriented test data, but I hope this review still has something useful for everyone.
During the first year it lost it's button decals, we though that's OK we can deal with it, it still works so we nursed it along for a while.
Then in the second year now and again it started to just boil and boil without stopping, eventually it wouldn't stop boiling so we kept our eyes on it and turned it off when the water was ready.
Now it just warms up a bit and beeps miserably.
Time to give up with technology and get a whistling stovetop model "KitchenAid KTEN20CBPR 2.0-Quart Kettle with C Handle and Trim Band - Pyrite" this should last longer than three years and is much cheaper.
