Fast and Safe
For those who need hot water fast, the electric kettle is for you. In a few minutes, you can have a whole pot of boiling water for serving French press coffee or tea to friends. You can also make your whole crew happy on a cold day with enough water to make hot chocolate for everyone. Get distracted easily? Most of us do. But thanks to an automatic shutoff feature with boil-dry protection, you never have to worry about a hazard should you walk away and forget.
Enjoy the ease and convenience of cord-free serving with this well designed electric kettle. The detachable cord easily removes from the back of the kettle so you are free to take the kettle to the table for serving.
Most of us have put a kettle on the stove, forgotten, and returned later to a hot, bone-dry pot. Luckily an automatic shutoff function turns off the electric kettle when the water has boiled. This feature keeps your water waiting for you and your kettle from boiling dry. Should the water run out, the boil-dry protection will also turn it off.
Our 1000 watt heating element is located inside the kettle, making hot water quickly. In minutes, you’ll be enjoying your favorite tea or instant coffee.
Like all Proctor Silex products, the 1 Quart Electric Kettle has been tested extensively for durability and performance. During the production phase, each kettle runs through 10,000 cycles before they are approved. You can feel confident all of our products have been Tested. Proven.

My concerns are two fold. First, the sides do get hot. The handle remains cool, but I would not trust small children to be near it. Second, for the automatic shuttoff to work, the lid MUST be snapped closed. It will continue to boil if the lid is not completely closed (the instructions do state this). This is why I only gave it 4 stars.
It took me 7 minutes to boil (to auto-shutoff) a full pot (4 cups). The minimum (1 and 1/2 cups) took 2 min 50 sec.
It is supposed to be a 1000 watt heating element. Measuring it with a "Kill A Watt" meter, I found it actually used only 850-880 watts.
Update January 2013: After more than 7 years, this kettle is still in use boiling a single cup of water at my work approx 4 times per week. That is over 1000 uses. A few times the detachable cord was not in all the way, and when I turned it on, the on light did not turn on. Simply pushing it in fixed It. The heating element does appear to have some wear, as its got a few pitting marks. This is to be expected. Other than that there have been no problems. I would still rate it 4 stars.
P.S -- Terrific on snowy days when the kids come in and want hot coco...FAST! (Makes one feel like SuperMom for the rare second or two!!! <g>)
UPDATE: This, my original PS electric kettle died a painful death last year following a power surge after eight great years. I bought another and am happy to report its just as good.
Despite boiling and dumping out the water a half-dozen times, the water itself STILL tasted like "plastic." Ick. As a tea drinker, the quality of the water is key. Also, I found the general shape difficult to handle, the lid was hard to open, and when gently pouring the water it consistently (and dangerously) sloshed out the sides near the spout.
Anyway, I ended up giving this one away and buying an additional Bodum electric kettle for the office. It's working great, just like the 10-year-old Bodum I take traveling. (I think it's also interesting to note that the classic, no-frills, usable design of the Bodum has remain unchanged in the past 10 years - Hey, if it ain't broke, don't 'fix' it.)
great deal, i recommend it.
So I tried the boil out routine about 5 more times over 3 days. After all, this is a great price and it's handy to use in my office. I made tea again. Same result. I always say -"Can't you learn, or don't you want to?". I sent the unit back to Amazon today. It boils water great, and it shuts off just fine. I had no problems with snapping the lid down. But that plastic smell just lingers. I think I'll try the Sunbeam 6131 Hot Shot next. I didn't see any taste issues in reviews of it.
Don't waste your time or money on this unless you work in a lab and want to check thermocouples to make sure they read 212° F when water boils.
This is a wonderful electric kettle. I timed it to see how long it takes for the water to boil and it took exactly 5 minutes, then it automaticly shuts off. This kettle takes less time and energy to boil the same amount of water than my brand new stove top or microwave.
You need to becareful though. Even the kettle is cool to the touch after water boils, you need to close cap tightly (when you hear a click) before flipping the switch on. Otherwise you can get burn by the scalding hot water.
