5 a.m. and put the water on. When it was done I picked it up and the handle fell off! I was lucky I had a heavy robe on.
Be careful. It looks like they used super glue to attach the handle and it failed. I'm sorry to write this but it's dangerous.
I'll cover the minor drawbacks of this model first. I've been using electric kettles for nearly 20 years - so I won't wax poetic about electric or cordless - they are a given.
1)Capacity: It will either make a pot of coffee of a pot of tea - won't do both in a single boil. Mine would hold a liter of water if filled to the "fill line" getting more in required me to fill it past that. I often did, and it still worked, but more slowly. The fill line is about half-way up the body of the pot.
2)The lid: It's a bit tricky/fiddly to remove while it's hot because the plastic part of the handle isn't quite as large as it could be to fully protect bigger fingers from coming in contact with the hot chrome. Also, the fit is tight, which is a good thing, but requires that one exert quite some pull to get it off; enough pull to splash hot water if one does not take care. I perfected a one-handed method that worked well for me after some practice: grasp the handle as if to pour, extend two fingers down to pinch the knob of the lid between the knuckles, squeeze the knob up towards the handle as if pulling a trigger.
3)Plastic: There is only a tiny bit of plastic that comes into contact with the water in this almost all metal kettle. The bit that indicates the "fill line" and is apparently the thermostat for the auto shut off once water boils is inside the belly of the pot, and is plastic. It did not produce an off smell or taste, but I was never happy about it.Read more ›

GREAT for tea drinkers and lots of other uses. Water heats up fast and then the kettle turns itself off. Easy and safe. I cannot imagine going back to a stove-top water kettle. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Twix
