"Does the water come in contact with the heating element?"
Fantastic kettle and holds a lot more than it appears. Be careful where you point this as it will give a solid stream of steam. Have had it only a short few months so we'll see how durable it is but so far so good....

This kettle is used daily. You don't have to worry about forgetting to turn off the stove, this electric kettle turns itself off once the water boils. Every tea drinker should own one.Read More
This is a great stainless electric kettle. There are some plastic parts that come into contact with the water however. on the inside there is a plastic piece that when the water is boiling, it hits this piece then shuts off. a nice feature but with a plastic piece. Also, the plastic knob on the lid goes through to the inside, so if you were really concerned about plastic, you might not want it. I think it is a great product and I don't mind that the water will occasionally come in contact with plastic, but I wouldn't have picked it out had I known... unless all the other stainless ones were the same way.Read More
Questions & Answers
No it does not.
"Does the water come in contact with any plastic parts like on the lid, pour spout or a water level measure. I'm looking for an electric kettle where the water won't be touching plastic. Thanks, Tara"
Only if the water boiled high enough to reach the lid.
