Got this a couple weeks ago to boil water for iced tea, being from the south I'm a big iced tea drinker. So far so good. Over all the design is nice, although if you have fat fingers like me the buttons on the handle are a bit on the tiny side, but not a big deal. It's also just a tad, just a tad, awkward getting it back onto the base after you pick it up with the way it's designed. But again, just a tad. Over all it's nice looking, a decent size to be able to leave out on the counter top. It also has a nice feature of being able to wrap any excess cord under the base so if you do plan to leave it out all the time the cord is nice and neat, no extra cord in the way. It doesn't dribble or anything like that when pouring, like the description says and the multiple temp and keep warm features are nice. It's also at a better price point that what I found to be comparable quality and feature wise. My only complaint in my purchase of this item is I noticed it at a lower price on the site within a couple weeks of purchase by $4, not a huge difference but isn't the reason we are all here to get deals. When I talked to customer service to see if they would adjust my purchase for me they informed me their policy is only to do that within 10 days of purchase. I was disappointed to say the least, I would think 30 days would be more reasonable. So if you do purchase this or any other items that say "put into your cart to see todays special price" or whatever it is it says I would recommend going back for the following 10 days to see if there is a change to the price in your favor.
It shouldn't be hard to design a kettle. When it's finished, you should be able to press the button, the water should boil, and the kettle should turn off. Not this kettle, which mysteriously turns itself on again every now and then, including after you've emptied the water out of it and put it back on its stand (i.e. when there's no water in it at all). I find it very hard to believe this isn't a fire hazard and it's certainly creepy. This is quite clearly a case of an appliance company deciding to "rebrand" or "reimagine" a perfectly functional product by slapping more buttons and lights on it, and completely ruining it in the process. I hate this kettle with a vengeance.
I like this kettle a lot, it is has very useful option to keep the water at desired tempereture for 30 minutes. Just make sure that this button is not lighted up when this feature is not needed. This kettle has great look and nice features.
This tea pot heats water very fast & nice & hot. Much hotter than a coffee carafe would make. Just excellent. This was a gift to a grand daughter and she is thrilled. The cord retracts so it doesn't get in the way on the counter. Overall this was an excellent product.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. excellent quality
How accurate was the on site description of the product? very
I am very disappointed. I have other Cuisinart products and they have lasted well. This is my second kettle within the year. The first was replaced because it started to leak around the base of the handle. now the second one is doing the same.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Good
Please tell us about the quality of the product. I returned my first purchase as it started to leak around the handle. The replacement is doing the same thing.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Looks good but proved otherwise
We drink a lot of tea and make coffee in a french press to this kettle is
perfect for us. Has a large capacity and boils very quickly. The only
downside I can see is that it is rather heavy so by the time it is full it might be too much for some people. We can manage it so great fit for us.
I love the different temperature settings. it is wonderful for different tea brews. The only complaint I have is that I can not turn it on under the counter, I pull it out as the steam from the kettle can definatly ruin my kitchen cabinet veneers. But not a big deal considering it gets very hot and I don't have to worry about turning it off and love the keep warm option on it as well.
We have owned this model for several years and had no problems with it. We use our tea kettle every day both morning and evening and use all the different features. We recently lost our kettle to a power surge so i went online and reviewed several kettles. After about an hour of research i found that this is still the best value out there. I know this is good quality and will give me many more years of good service.
