Great Stainless Kettle. Super quick boil!
This kettle seems great! I've only had it for a couple days, but I'm sure I've used it at least 10 times since then (I drink a lot of tea, and need hot water for other reasons).
It heats water fast, shuts off timely after boil, stays hot. The cord wraps around the base so you can keep it short, thus not getting in the way. No leaks so far. Best part about this kettle is that water only comes in contact with the stainless. The interior of the kettle is completely stainless except the lid. After checking with the manufacturer they use a 304SS which is from the highest quality stainless avail. This should help with rust buildup in hard water areas. Although a 202SS is suffised, if you live in an area with hard water its worth paying a bit more... Overall, this is a great product at a great price.
SUPER CONVENIENT AND RELIABLE!!!
The product is such an easy everyday convenience! That is, of course, if you need to boil water. I use it mostly to brew tea, instant coffee, hot chocolate, making quick noodles or pasta, oatmeal,and any other recipe that needs me to boil water. I got this at an incredible deal for $10 new on OnlineShopDealer market, so I couldn't say no. Since I opened it, I have not stopped using it. The exterior is made out of quality stainless steel, much better than using the plastic electrical kettles. The convenience of this kettle is that it is cordless, I can pick up the kettle and pour away within a good distance away from the plug in base adapter. Also, the water automatically shuts off when it is at the highest boiling temperature, and it boils in a minute, that is quick. This is my first time posting a review, but I felt this kettle deserves to have recognition. It also comes with a 3 year expiration. :-) I have taken it to my work, a school classroom. I feel safe to use it in the mornings, as I am constantly drinking tea and I'm often on the go.
Priced reasonably and does the job
This is a fuss-free and easy-to-operate kettle. The stainless steel body and hidden heating element are welcome features. When filled with water to the maximum point, it boils enough for two 20-oz beverages in under two minutes.
This is my first electric kettle and I was a bit leery about how well this item would work. This kettle has surpassed all my expectations in ease of use, light weight, appearance, safety and speed. One of the best safety features is the auto turn off once the water has boiled. I am so happy that I decided to take a chance because I now ask myself why I took so long in purchasing one. This item will be around for a long time to come.
I love the simpliciTea of this electric kettle
In short, this kettle is great. It quickly brings water to a boil, is easy to fill and easy to operate. It looks pretty sharp too.
This electric kettle has satisfied all of my expectations.
boils water quickly
easy to use
complete stainless steel interior aside from plastic as seen on very top
Swivel base makes it easy to lift and set pot. no dealing with a cord when trying to pour your water.
pours well. the spout is perforated cheese grater style so the water doesn't fly out if you accidentally tilt the pot too far while pouring.
You must make sure to close the lid completely. It senses when the water is done boiling, and with the lid open, the water never stops boiling
There is no feature to re-boil if the temperature drops. If you want the hottest water it can produce, you need to catch it right when it clicks itself off.
Use distilled water to avoid having the pot crust up. Plus, the tea tastes better
Probably not the best electric kettle on the market. But for the price, I don't think any other brand delivers better. I have had the same kettle for about 6 months now. I brew tea and coffee every day. Yes, water does accumulate inside the plastic top. And over time, you will probably get some minor discolorations on the inside. But overall, it brews the perfect cup of hot water in a couple minutes. The light flashes bright red as the water is brewing.
Gets the job done
Not much to say - can be placed in any orientation on the round base, boils water in a reasonable amount of time, priced well. Just note that the metal body gets very hot (as hot as the water inside), so be careful.
One drawback is that it doesn't have a mesh filter to stop scale particles, so if you have hard water, perhaps another model would be better.
solid construction, nothing you don't need
It brings warm tap water to a rolling boil in less than 4 minutes, at a high altitude of 5280 feet. A little slower than my vintage cast aluminum Griswold kettle, but that kettle no longer exists on this mortal plane, as I walked away from it, forgot it, and turned it into a very smelly molten puddle on my stovetop. What a mess.
It has only one button which turns it on, a light tells you it's on, it turns itself off when the water is at a rolling boil. It holds more water than other options I looked at, and interior is entirely stainless steel. call me crazy but I don't relish the thought of boiling water for my son's oatmeal in a plastic pot from China. No offense.
I will be using this every day!!
My new best friend!
So Many uses that I recently bought my mom one for Mother's Day and she called saying how much easier making tea had become and that she loves it so much.
I use mine for
-Boiling water for pasta and stuff (it's faster than waiting for a pot to boil)
- Great for warming up bottles for babies
Basically anything that needs hot water this is the best way to do it
Also it looks great on the counter tops of my kitchen.
