This kettle looks and feels and works very well. So if you have stainless steel appliances in your kitchen and would like a stainless steel water kettle, this is a great one that I recommend. It works very well. The indicator tells you exactly how many cups of water you have inside. It has a removable pot, so I can take it to the den or my beautiful patio whenever I like to enjoy a cup of tea there. When I'm done, I just put it back to the base. This is a very handy kettle. Great price too.
I am a little disappointed in that this product claims to be a 12 cup capacity but it is only a 6-1/2 cup capacity at the "max" fill mark. The other thing is that the opening is difficult to access with cleaning sponges or cloths. It boils water okay.
This was just what I was looking for for a specific event. It looked fine,was the right size and worked great. The water heated up quickly. Only negative is the plastic lever to turn it on or off is a little flimsy. I worry that it could break off at some point.
When I returned from my vacation, I was determined to get the type of electric kettle that I saw everywhere in Europe. After pricing a few models, I was convinced that this item was a good price for the style and quality and I was right. I love the convenience and the safety featuures. I even bought an extra as a shower gift for my daughter . Good choice!
I've had my kettle for a few weeks now and have really been enjoying it. It's very attractive and has a good solid feel to it. The cordless feature makes filling and pouring easy. It heats quickly. My one concern is the on-off switch: it it made of lightweight plastic and sticks an inch or so from the bottom of the kettle, making it vulnerable to breakage. I hope I'm wrong and the switch holds up, because I really like this kettle!
