Some people said the glass or the plastic broke easily, but we've had ours for about a month now, used it almost every day, and it's holding up really well. You're not supposed to have the plastic handle over the heat source at all - so just make sure to position it on your stove as such. If you have an electric stove, it comes with a little looped wire to place it on to distribute the heat evenly (since we have a gas stove, I can't tell you whether that works or not). For gas stoves, you just plop it on the range. They recommend not keeping it on the stove too much longer if it's started to whistle, so keep that in mind as well. We live in a 3 story house, and from the second floor you can hear the whistle if you don't have the doors closed. As for cleaning, you can reach in and and lightly scrub away any residue from water - it comes right off (although I have women's hands - the average man's hand might not fit?). I guess I'd also recommend not putting it on the table or other surface without a pad or something underneath it, after it's boiled recently. Just think of it like any other glass cookware. It's not as thick as glass bakeware, but it's not as thin as a glass french press. I wouldn't go banging it around a lot, but it's also not going to shatter if it taps something.
Visually, it's kind of cool to be able to see the water boil. It's also supposedly the best way to make coffee/tea (boiling water in glass). And considering that the price of a glass water boiler that you plug in is really high, 10 bucks is such a bargain. I'm pretty sure the plastic electric water boilers cost more than that. Even if this one broke someday, I'd buy another one. Worth it. Loving it!
It's January 2014 and this kettle is still holding up strong!!
If yours is like mine, you may see little clear/silvery crystalline floaty bits in your tea water! Although we know they are not, they look just like super-thin shards of glass. Puts one off completely. We thought perhaps it was our water, so we used filtered water. Same result. Then we tried taking the top off (thinking perhaps it was residue coming from the top). Same result.
As you can see in our original review below, we first thought they were the product of "over boiling". That was until our two sons - physics nerds both - urged a non-scientific study as they did not think that could happen.
To compare, we dug out an old Corning ware pot and did a comparison. Mind you, we had been using the kettle for over a month, on average at least once every 2 days. Silvery bits began to form in the glass kettle within 2 1/2 hours. (Video shows the water after about 5 hours. We stopped there because it was getting too close to the minimum marking.) Absolutely nothing from the Corning ware pot. Not a single sparkling bit. Not from water straight out of our tap. Even after keeping the water hot for 7+ hours. Nothing!! They surmised something was leeching from the glass of the kettle itself!! It was promptly donated to the garbage can.
Who would have thought glass could do that! I certainly never did! Who knows what we've been drinking!!!!!
We really like this kettle. Wish the whistle was a little louder, but it does the job - you just have to be on your toes and listen for it. I love the generous capacity, and since it's clear, you can easily tell when you've "over-boiled" your water when you see the shiny, floaty bits.
The handle stays nice and cool. As for pouring, I thought it was more of a pop-up lid, but it's not. You have to open up the top to pour. I got a little nervous the first few times I did it - fearing scalding - but it was no problem.
Overall, this is very nice. Would definitely recommend it for tea lovers.
