  • Rust on the inside.
    Verified Purchase

    Loved the kettle but over the years it is rusting on the inside where the sides meet the bottom. Very disappointed as it was just what I needed for making tea etc.

  • Little tea pot, short and stout!
    Verified Purchase

    This item was purchased to replace a different electric kettle that had worn out. I like being able to heat water without tying up any of the burners on my stove. I like the fact that this is stainless steel, and I think the shape of the kettle is pleasant. The water heats quickly. I am very satisfied with this purchase.

  • Not What I Was Hoping For
    Verified Purchase

    It's heavy when full - I wouldn't recommend for anyone with arthritis or trouble holding on to things and it needs more water than I expected to even turn it on. This too often equals the potential for wasting water. My daughter's doesn't need near as much water to make a cuppa.

  • Good kettle
    Verified Purchase

    We use this kettle in our busy office, and use it to serve tea to guests. It has been in use for about a year and a half without any problems.

    Switched from plastic Bodum kettle to this this kettle and will never look back. HB kettle retains heats and I can reuse the water (w/out the worry of strange heated plastic particulates floating around.) Extra bonus: at night, after my last cup, I use the slightly cooled remaining water (for my hot water bottle for the bed.) In this kettle, the water heats very quickly & the kettle is very stylish. Wish I'd made the switch sooner...

  • Just What I Wanted
    Verified Purchase

    This kettle does exactly what I intended it for which is a quick way to boil water for tea etc. It is a bit heavy but I'd rather have heavy with good quality. I love the turn off feature as sometimes I forget that I've put the pot on to boil. It is very nice looking as well and now has a permanent home on my kitchen counter.

  • Attractive, speedy, a little awkward
    Verified Purchase

    Looks great on the counter - the rounded body and simple flip top and heating switch make it very easy to use. I drink tea much more frequently than I did before because of its speed. My one complaint is that while it has a steam release noise when it heats up to boiling, there is no actual sound to indicate when the boiling is complete, and it switches off immediately. Because it boils so quickly, if I walk away for a few minutes, it might not be boiling by the time I get back. It does also require a little tilting to get the water into the kettle because of the small flip top and large body. However, these are minor inconveniences. Overall this was a good value and I'm happy with it, and will continue to use it frequently.

  • Love it!
    Verified Purchase

    I really like this product the main reason being in the past I have had too many stove top kettles burn up due to early morning multi tasking. In my opinion the only negative aspect about this kettle is that gets a bit loud during the last stage of heating. However, this should not be a reason to dismiss purchasing this attractive kettle.

  • good ekectric kettle
    Verified Purchase

    This is a good electric kettle. The only suggestion that I have to the maker of this product is that the design can be improved. 1) The window to see the water level n the kettle is not so clearly seen through, so it is hard to determine the water level. 2) the angle of the lid makes it hard to fill the kettle at the faucet. 3) The shape of the kettle (bottom much larger) require quite a bit more water to meet the minimum level. The design of our other electric kettle made by AROMA is better, but this one is also excellent.

  • Q:

    "How to get the screen back in? It were the pour is. It can out and I can not get it back again."

    • A:

      Thank you for contacting us chicoblack. Unfortunately as for the mechanism, we are really not familiar with this. For further assitance, I think it is best to contact Hamilton Beach’s customer service. I do apologize if I wasn’t able to help you out further with this case. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

    • A:

      Personally I took the screen out and don't use it because it was inconvenient to fill the kettle from my countertop filter container with the filter in. And I don't believe that I have all the buildup that the material makes reference to.
