    • 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...

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • Convenient

      Heats fast with no adverse taste or smell. Effortless set up and removal from base. Auto shutoff functions well and the base is warm yet cool enough to set on a mouse pad while at my desk. Kettle weight is as most others and the options to shut down the unit before unit reaches full boiling point.

    • Hamilton Beach Stainless Steel Electric Kettle

      The kettle heats quickly but it is hard to fill. It hold it's heat well but would have liked a longer cord.

    • Love this Kettle

      We are tea drinkers so this pot gets a lot of use. We have had for about 14 months and we love love love it. It looks great out on the counter if you want to leave it there. We do because we use it alot. Excellent style and reliability. If you like tea, you should get one of these.

    • How to get the screen back in? It were the pour is. It can out and I can not get it back again.

      • 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.

      • 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.

    • Is this completely BPA free?

      • We will research this information and will post as soon as it becomes available.

      • I guess the answer is "NO" since the stated research by customer care has been occurring since July 2012.
