Top customer reviews
PROS: What I like about this kettle is that it boils the water quickly and takes up little space on my counter. I can get three generous size cups of tea with this filled to the top or four eight ounce cups. It also has an automatic shut off so I can leave the room and not worry about anything boiling over or burning.
CONS: Even though I knew I would have to unplug it to take it from the counter to the table to pour the water into cups, I did not realize that the cord was so short that I would have to unplug it to have to pour the water into cups almost next to the kettle. This is a nuisance to have to unplug it and plug it back in constantly. Additionally, there are black spots forming on the heating coils on the inside of the unit where the water boils.
Overall, this is an okay electric kettle. In my opinion it would be good for someone just starting out, however if you use hot water frequently, I would look for an electric kettle with more features and one that you do not have to keep unplugging and plugging in to use.
Doesn't take up much room on the counter
3-4 minutes of boil time
Auto Shut off
Cons: With the exception of the heating coil at the bottom - it is all plastic
The attached cord
Since the kettle still works perfectly fine, I hesitate to replace it. Unfortunately the issue of boiling water in plastic, or having any hot foodstuff in contact with plastic - now bothers me. I have replaced all of our food storage containers with glass ones. Now to search for a BPA free, if not all glass kettle.
If the plastic issue doesn't bother you, this is the best kettle for the price.
My parents broke their pot(so I gave them another) and they had had it for a year and a half...but they admitted that they cooked almost everything in it ,using it eight to ten times a day,for hot drinks to hot food as it was so much easier than their stove and microwave. I have a new replacement for them in the closet already.
This is one gift I got for them that they USE,and at such a good price.
Cord's a little on the short side, but does the job.
Simple to operate and use.
[EDIT 2/21/14] I've been using it every working day and going through two full kettles of water per day doing so (I drink tea like a fish when I'm working). The kettle continues to boil quickly and there is no detectable taste whatsoever.
I should add that I empty it out each night, empty it before refilling and I boiled it three times with a fresh filling of water each time before using it as someone here suggested. The faint smell of plastic it had from new was gone by the second pre-use boiling. I was concerned by the complaints of chemical taste made on this listing but speaking only for myself I can't detect any such taste.
I conducted a test before using it 'for real' in which a fourth filling and boiling before tea making was poured over ice and tasted. It was tasteless. Not so much as a hint of chemicals.
Perhaps what we see is a different batch of plastic, or perhaps the kettles are made in different factories? I don't know. [/EDIT]
[EDIT 6/30/14] My kettle is still working fine with no issues. I use it to make enormous mugs of tea (I get two, sometimes three mugs per filling) and I use it *at least* twice a day and usually three or four times. Call it 12-15 boilings a week. I have noticed one thing: That the auto-off switch is activated by steam passing over it and out the small hole at the back of the kettle. So you can get singed if you put your hand there while the kettle is boiling, and if the lid is not properly snapped down steam fails to go where it should and the switch does not turn itself - and the kettle - off. A double check is in order before boiling. [/EDIT]
[EDIT 12/30/16] Mine is still going strong, boiling three to four times a day during the week. I like this one so much I got one for my mother-in-law, who professes herself very pleased with it.
I boiled three loads of water before I gave it to her to reduce the chance of "plastic taste" just like I did with my own. [/EDIT]
