I wasn't sure it was the correct order when I received the box, as it was in a box for a stereo! But, indeed, the tea kettle was inside in its own box. Like the picture, it lights up in blue when the kettle is turned on. And, it shuts off automatically when it gets to a full boil. Nowhere in the description does it actually say that, so I'm letting you all know. This replaced a Braun plastic electric kettle that I had for a few years and worked great. Unfortunately, the cord on that one got burned by my toaster oven, so it became unsafe. I hope this one lasts at least as long. I like the idea that it's primarily glass. Wish the cord was longer and less stiff, but I'm guessing it's for safety reasons. It's great for a quick water boil for tea or instant hot drinks. Recommended!

This is an excellent kettle. Interestingly, our water is extremely hard, but I am not getting water deposits around the inside, as has happened in the past with other kettles. Highly recommended at this point in use.
