I know the main inside of the kettle is metal, but does the boiling water touch any amount of plastic at all? The see-through window looks to be plastic. I don't want my hot water to be in contact with plastic, as it will leach chemicals into my water.
Great item. Use it all the time!...

Great item. Use it all the time!Read More
Nice metal electric tea kettle with automatic off. The gift recipient was thrilled with the looks and informed me that the kettle heated water quickly.Read More
Poor quality. It is already peeling the red paint. Working is pretty well though. I've had it for a few months only.Read More
Although the price is right, the quality is not. Water leaked with second use. Delivery time good...pretty to look at...fast boil time, noisy, but maybe they all are. I'll continue to use it and just wipe up afterward because I threw out all of the paperwork (of course).Read More
this is good, pretty, does the job. Smelled a bit plastic at first but order is gone now.Read More
I bought this kettle for good coffee in a French Press. Water from a drip coffee maker wasn't hot enough; A whistling tea kettle woke roommates at 5 in the morning. An open pan of boiling water would sometimes silently boil dry. I needed something "set it and forget it" style. This Ovente is just the ticket. This kettle was a delight right out of box. The external AND internal box had really taken a beating during shipping, but the kettle and base inside were in perfect condition. I was concerned the surface might scratch off with use. Not so. The red walls appear to be lightly coated with a protective clear coat. The interior is bare stainless steel. Design silhouette is elegant and the handle solid and comfortable, well insulated from hot stainless steel. Features I looked for: an easy to read water level window on the side not in the handle; and base and kettle heating elements thoroughly recessed for cleaning, safety and rust prevention. This kettle has all. The exposed metal heating element is recessed into the kettle itself. The black plastic bottom of the kettle and base both remain 'cool' to touch so the kettle can be moved around the counter without melting anything. At 9x6x9 inches, it takes up little counter space. Since it shuts off just after boil, there's less risk of steam damage on overhangs. Set up is a breeze: clean, fill to line, kettle on base, plug in and trip lever. Done. With 1500 watts it boils in about 5 minutes (in the midwest), red light goes out and the lever pops up just after bubbling. There is no 'warm' function here. It's strictly boil and shut off. For the inattentive, there's a boil-dry safety feature as well. After weeks of steady use, I noticed rust on the interior bottom, but turns out it was from our drinking water, and wiped away easily to the intact stainless bottom. The base has a wrap around "hidden cord" feature for neat-niks but Liter indicators are only embossed numbers on the plastic water level window and will likely come off with compulsive cleaning so caution there. After use, these lines will be little more than aesthetic because full/half-full/minimum will be a no-brainer. Scalding temps work well for reconstituting noodles, lightly cooking thin veggies in soup bowls, tea, instant cocoa, and of course French Press coffee. All in all, we love this kettle; its safety, design beauty, unobtrusive unattended operation and its functionality.Read More
When I first received this kettle I fell in love with it. The color and size was great. But not even two weeks into owning it a piece of the color flaked off next to the spout. I could have lived with that but then the plastic piece that holds the top down broke off. I called Overstock and sent it back. They were very helpful and it didn't cost me anything. Overstock sent me a new one very quickly. I opened the box and plugged it in. It didn't work. So I called Overstock again and sent it back. Overstock has exceptional customer service. Having had two of these kettles break I can not recommend this product to anyone.Read More
It was great. It was louder than my old kettle, but it took about 3 minutes to heat to boiling. It held more than most kettles, nowadays. It was cute, at bit flashy and easy to clean and easy to see how much water you had in it. I really liked it up until it stopped working. I bought it in August, and it stopped working in January. Cheaper to buy a new one than fix it. I am sure my experience was a fluke, but I can't in good consciousness recommend it without that note.of caution.Read More
This only lasted about a year when the heating element went out. Or something. It just quit working.Read More
Kettle worked several months. Water began to leak from the panel with water level.Read More
