    • 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.

    • Brilliant solution to boil water anytime!

      I have a gas stove and a microwave. The microwave broke, so I have been boiling water for tea or for coffee thru my French press on the gas stove. NOT a safe situation, regardless of whether you use a kettle or saucepan.. I also want to make my teenage sons independent for breakfast. No way are they using that gas stove! This kettle is worth every penny of its already low price. Per the description, it boils water quickly, has an auto shut-off (major safety feature), and the stainless carafe can simply be carried away to pour the hot water anywhere-very convenient. Because of the stainless steel, the water stays hot for about an hour. Perfect to push a single mom and two kids out the door in the am! Ahhh, but the

    • Tea time

      Needed to replace the electric kettle which had started leaking but it was no longer available. This Hamilton Beach electric kettle is almost as good - seems a little slower. We don't need gizmos that lower the temperature or tell you when its boiling just an auto off device. It does all that very well at a modest price and we would buy another (if we have to in the future).

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • Is the stainless from China? Are the plastic parts in contact with the water?

      • 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.

      • 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!

    • 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.

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