When I broke our other heated water kettle I saw this one on Overstock and ordered it. When I received this heated water kettle I tried it right away. The Kettle worked good, the only thing I have a problem with it takes a little longer to heat. That's why it got 4 stars.
UPDATE: This kettle stopped working within 1 year of the purchase. The power button stopped working. Not a great quality... I have been reading many reviews about this product. I admit that buying it, I already have read about it being on the slow side. This is due to 1100 Watts instead of more powerful 1500 Watts. I was thinking, OK, let's give this a try, how slow can it be? Well, it is significantly slower than my aging Saecco electric kettle, which was 1500. Takes about 9 minutes to boil full pot from scratch. The look of it is what got me to buy it, in the first place, orange trim, although plasticky, still looks modern with a glass body. The quality of it is average. Since plastic part is molded, expect to possibly see some imperfections in it. Mine has 2 small black specks that show through in the orange plastic trip, looks like some other color plastic piece got mixed in and quality control didn't do a good job catching it. Overall, it's an ok product, although I have only had it for 30 days and don't know if it will start breaking down some time soon. If you are ok with turning it on and going away to do something, its looks compensate for being slow. If you want a workhorse of a kettle, this is not the one.
my husband and I reach for this electric kettle all of the time. It is so nice for a very quick cup of tea etc. The aesthetics are not as nice as the ones we have spent upwards of hundreds on but it serves the purpose and we are more than pleased.
