I had been missing my electric kettle that I had during graduate school in England. This kettle is filling the void. It's attractive, boils water quickly, has an automatic shut-off, clear lines for how high to fill it, and the cord is attached to the base, not the kettle (for mobility). The one unexpected thing I found about this unit, is that it seems to have a VERY short cord on the base. This is great if you have a concern about cord clutter on the kitchen counter, but not great if you think you're going to place it further forward on the counter in front of another appliance (won't reach then). Love using this kettle to boil water for tea (of course), or to boil water more quickly for making pasta. Would make a great gift for a college student that lives off of things like spaghetti, ramen, and instant coffee.
