  • Great kettle
    Verified Purchase

    Looks great. easy to fill easy and pour. Heats quickly. After heating, you can remove it from its base and set it on the table. Retains heat very well. I love the blue lighting while its heating as indicator.

  • the best electric kettle
    Verified Purchase

    This is a terrific electric kettle. It is attractive to look at on my counter -- it replaced a benign but not pretty white plastic one. The blue light gives it some pizazz while it's at work, and it is incredibly fast at its only job -- boiling water. A definite win.

  • Perfect for quick hot water
    Verified Purchase

    This is our second Krups kettle. We use it several times/day, so it gets a lot of use. The first one lasted 2 years and then began to leak, so we needed to replace it. I would have liked it to last longer, but - for the price - it is a good deal.

    This is a nice hot water heater and overall we are happy with it. However, the top spins and you have to be careful when filling it that the water doesn't hit the flap and spray everywhere. I know that the wider opening was meant for easy cleaning but since I only use the kettle for water, it doesn't seem necessary to have the flap, rather a problem

    First of all -this arrived with a dent in it, at the top, near the lid, but I'm English and can't live without my cups of tea, so I didn't want to wait for a replacement, and decided to keep it. Wrong decision. Just a week ago (by which time I'd owned it for 13 months) the lid broke. This was always going to be a problem, since it's hinged by two tiny pieces of plastic and if one of them gets broken, then the lid falls into the water. There is no way you can fix it. I think maybe the dent didn't help, but it was such a bad design, it would have happened in any case. So now, if you try boiling water, you can't fix the lid on, and you're in danger of having scalding water pouring all over you each time you lift and pour. I see Overstock is no longer offering this kettle and I'm not surprised. DO NOT BUY IT - it could cause very serious damage to your hands. It's made by Krups (which used to be considered a good European make) but I think you need to replace the letter U in their name with an A!

  • Not recommended!
    Verified Purchase

    Would not recommend to anyone. As soon as I received it, it looked great with the blue lights and silver. I boiled water once then the 2nd time I tried to boil water, it could not boil again. What a waste of my time! I had to bring it back to UPS and find another hot water dispenser. I would not purchase anything from this company that is made in china and deal with its cheaply made products again.

  • Bad plastic odor
    Verified Purchase

    Had to return this, as it made the entire house smell like bad plastic. Thought I was getting a metal kettle, but the plastic pieces have a solvent-type odor which became overpowering when the kettle was heated.

  • boils water extremely fast!!
    Verified Purchase

    i have had this (my first) electric kettle for a few weeks now, and have been very pleased with the performance. it boils water VERY quickly, and to a very high heat. i have even cut back my brewing time on my tea because the water is so hot. the kettle seems big, but in comparison to others, it isn't that much bigger, but the round shape makes it a less conventional fit for a countertop. the only drawback i can see is that if you accidentally hit the ON switch (which is easy to do) and the kettle happens to be empty, it would be easy to destroy the item. i accidentally hit it and managed to turn it off before much damage occured, but i did distinctly smell a slight melting plastic smell. the kettle still works well though and whatever happened, it didn't seem to affect the performance of the product whatsoever. the other thing i was a little disappointed in (has nothing to do with product performance) was that it was made in china, though that seems to be the way of things now. other than that. i LOVE this kettle. a full kettle will come to a full roiling boil in a little over 5 minutes.
