does any plastic come in contact with the water while it is heating?
This is my second one. The first one was so nice that when it died I immediately looked for another to replace it. I make multiple cups of tea per day and this teapot has made that process so easy. It heats quickly and the water is good and hot so it brews a good cup of tea, and it turns itself off. Love it!...

This was my first electric tea kettle purchase so I don't have much to compare it with, but I wanted to stay away from microwaves and this fit the bill. Water heats quickly and unit shuts off automatically. Kettle removes easily from wired base for easy pouring. Looks good, doesn't take a lot of space and water is perfectly hot for tea! I shopped around for pricing and size and overall look and chose this one. Not disappointed.Read More
I needed an electric tea pot for the office. It is perfect for heating water which it does quickly. No complaints for this product. I am thinking of buying another one for home.Read More
We are very happy with this purchase. I like that the lid opens all the way up for filling but the water marker is a bit difficult to see because it is on the side of the pitcher under the handle. Other that that I would recommend this product.Read More
The tea kettle is very nice, efficient. Am pleased.Read More
Really fast heating, WOULD not recommend to anyone with children as the sides and top get VERY HOT. Its so easy to brush against it and get burned. It shuts off fast and I really like this one.Read More
Great basic kitchen product. You get boiling water in about 3 minutes with the click of a button. It's fairly compact and easy to clean. I really wanted a built-in hot water dispenser on my sink, but will wait for my kitchen re-do since they cost hundreds. This is great in the meantime. The only drawback is that the cord is a bit short, and of course it takes up a little counter space if you leave it out.Read More
Thist tea kettle is exactly what I was looking for. The water boils quickly and the shut off feature is a 'plus.'Read More
This electric tea kettle was just what I was looking for. Good size, shape and design; heats water efficiently and turns off properly. I wound up buying a second one because my daughter admired it and said she also one. She's happy with hers too..Read More
This kettle is small, yet it's enough for what I need it for. I purposely chose this size over the larger one when they were both about the same price. Water is boiled super quick, and delivery of the item was quick and easy. I use this on a daily basis, and no longer need to boil water manually which really saves me time!!! I believe every household should own at least one of these. We like it so much we are thinking for another one in our room!Read More
