So, I decided to start looking for a kettle of my own. I had a couple of requirements: I did not want a plastic kettle, it needed to have automatic shutoff, and it needed to heat water quickly. I came across this little guy and it fit the bill perfectly. All of my appliances are stainless or black, so this kettle looks nice on my counter, and is available to heat up water at any time.
I have teenagers, so they are always using boiling water for soups and noodles and whatever else, and this works very well for that. I use it for tea, instant coffee, and to make coffee in my french press. It is so convenient! The water heats up so quickly, even faster than I expected. It doesn't make noise when the water is ready, but you can hear the water boiling, and you can hear the kettle making a click sound when the water is heated.
I have owned several products from Hamilton Beach, and have always been pleased with them. I associate Hamilton Beach with quality, and this kettle does not disappoint. It feels very sturdy. Filled with water, it can have some weight to it, but it isn't too bad. It is about the same weight as a full pot of coffee. The outside of the kettle can get very hot, but the handle stays cool, which I like. I was pleasantly surprised at how long the water stayed warm afterward. My friend saw this on my counter and could not believe that I paid about the same amount for my kettle as she did for her plastic one. I guess now she has kettle envy! I imagine she will be purchasing this model very soon.
I will be updating after using it for some time
The only problem I really had was the lid. When I first opened it, it refused to close and stay closed but I think it was a user error. I have not had a single problem since. Everything else seems pretty sturdy and quality made. I've been using this Monday-Friday, multiple times a day for over a month now. I'm averaging about 1-2 pots of hot water a day and heating it up maybe 3 times a day.
The plastic window is on both sides and touch the water. In fact, there is more plastic on the inside. I know some people worry about that. I'm not worried and I haven't noticed anything tasting off or weird as a result but I wanted to mention it. If I'm wrong and it kills me, well... feel free to write something pithy in my obit.
I wasn't sure if the automatic switch was working. It is... as long as you don't overfill it. At least that was my experience.
Overall, I'm very pleased with it.
