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...

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.

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.
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.

The top hole is not big enough. Prefer a bigger opening. . For me -- it feels heavy. I don't fill it to the top because the weight strains my wrist. It cleans up nicely. It gets the water very hot, quickly. It's good... I'm satisfied.
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.
Was leary of buying a kettle with a base, but like the ability to have it on the table cord free. This heats very quickly, has a large capacity, matches with my other stainless kitchen items too.
I really appreciate that it is not plastic inside, that worried me with another brand I had previously used.
Very satisfied customer.
The outside does not get hot.

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
