  • Excellent

    Switched from plastic Bodum kettle to this this kettle and will never look back. HB kettle retains heats and I can reuse the water (w/out the worry of strange heated plastic particulates floating around.) Extra bonus: at night, after my last cup, I use the slightly cooled remaining water (for my hot water bottle for the bed.) In this kettle, the water heats very quickly & the kettle is very stylish. Wish I'd made the switch sooner...

    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? excellent
  • Just What I Wanted

    This kettle does exactly what I intended it for which is a quick way to boil water for tea etc. It is a bit heavy but I'd rather have heavy with good quality. I love the turn off feature as sometimes I forget that I've put the pot on to boil. It is very nice looking as well and now has a permanent home on my kitchen counter.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
    • How is the quality of the product? Very sturdy
    • Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes
  • Attractive, speedy, a little awkward

    Looks great on the counter - the rounded body and simple flip top and heating switch make it very easy to use. I drink tea much more frequently than I did before because of its speed. My one complaint is that while it has a steam release noise when it heats up to boiling, there is no actual sound to indicate when the boiling is complete, and it switches off immediately. Because it boils so quickly, if I walk away for a few minutes, it might not be boiling by the time I get back. It does also require a little tilting to get the water into the kettle because of the small flip top and large body. However, these are minor inconveniences. Overall this was a good value and I'm happy with it, and will continue to use it frequently.

  • Love it!

    I really like this product the main reason being in the past I have had too many stove top kettles burn up due to early morning multi tasking. In my opinion the only negative aspect about this kettle is that gets a bit loud during the last stage of heating. However, this should not be a reason to dismiss purchasing this attractive kettle.

  • good ekectric kettle

    This is a good electric kettle. The only suggestion that I have to the maker of this product is that the design can be improved. 1) The window to see the water level n the kettle is not so clearly seen through, so it is hard to determine the water level. 2) the angle of the lid makes it hard to fill the kettle at the faucet. 3) The shape of the kettle (bottom much larger) require quite a bit more water to meet the minimum level. The design of our other electric kettle made by AROMA is better, but this one is also excellent.

  • Perfect Kettle

    Exactly what I had hoped it would be! I bought one 3 months prior at Bloomingdale's and was very disappointed. This one functions like a dream.

  • so far so good

    I hope it lasts a year or more! So far it's fast, a little loud but worth it.

  • Works good.

    The only thing I didn't like about this is there is plastic mesh in the pour spout. I pulled that out immediately. Plastic and hot water mixed together are toxic. I advise you to remove that mesh grill from the spout. I would prefer the lid be metal. I operate this with the lid open so I don't get toxic plastic in my water.

Answer This Question

I don't have the box any more, so I don't know where it was made. I don't see any plastic parts on the pot itself. It's great for parties. secy13 on Jan 13, 2015
 
Hello ScarySherry, this kettle was made in China. The plastic does not have contact with the water. I hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any additional questions. Thank you for shopping with us! overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 13, 2015

Answer This Question

Thank you for contacting us chicoblack. Unfortunately as for the mechanism, we are really not familiar with this. For further assitance, I think it is best to contact Hamilton Beach’s customer service. I do apologize if I wasn’t able to help you out further with this case. Please let us know if you have any further questions. overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 5, 2013
 
Personally I took the screen out and don't use it because it was inconvenient to fill the kettle from my countertop filter container with the filter in. And I don't believe that I have all the buildup that the material makes reference to. lizharmony on Dec 15, 2013
