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.
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
The only bad thing I have to say about this is that the entire kettle gets hot. If you have little ones it could be dangerous. I burned myself and will be sure not to touch the kettle again when it is hot. The different levels of heat are great if you are a tea drinker.
My husband loves tea, and the ability to set the temp depending on the type of tea is a great feature of this kettle. It is very well built. We replaced a Sunbeam Hot Shot with this, obviously there is no comparison. You "get what you pay for".
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? As pictured
Please tell us about the quality of the product. as usual a great quality for Cuisinart
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate
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.
This kettle is not as good as I expected. The lid cannot be opened smoothly. After pressing the Open button, I need to manually lift the lid in order to open it completely.
The maximum capacity is 1.7 L. only about 2/3 of the kettle height, not very efficient.
But the temperature settings are good. So I still decide to keep this kettle. But the price does not match the value very well.
My wife and I make french press coffee and different varieties of tea multiple times a day. This is a lot to pay for hot water, but we love it and I go to Starbucks far less now that we can get fast fresh delicious coffee and chai at home. It is super fast and accurate. It is beautiful and easy to clean and replace parts. I love to buy from overstock.com. I have never had a bad experience with overstock.com. The $**I paid was the lowest price I could find on the internet...that said I later discovered that I could have bought it at ** for $**and used one of my ** off coupons.
This is the perfect electric kettle to make tea ! I upgraded my former stainless steel electric kettle with this one and I LOVE it. It is so convenient. The temperatures are written as well as the kind of tea, 6 preselected buttons : 160F delicate, 175F green, 185F white, 190F oolong, 200F french press and boil black.
There is a convenient keep warm feature that allows you to get a second steep.
Contrary to some reviews I read, you CAN turn off the kettle by pressing the start button once more while replacing the kettle on its base. You can also turn the blue light off by pressing that button again. You do not need to leave it on your counter while not in use or unplug it. It can sit on the base without being turned on. I guess people just don't read instructions and then complain. We also LOVE the fact that it is a lot quieter than our previous electric kettle and does its job so quickly !!!! Highly recommended. You won't regret spending more to get a well designed, highly efficient and convenient tea kettle !
