    My wife loves a good cup of tea and in the past, we just left the kettle on very low heat on the stove. The other night I came home to the smell of gas. The breeze had blown out the flame and my wife, who had a really bad cold, was upstairs and could not smell the gas.

    Time to get something a bit safer while we still had a house! After some research, we ordered this electric kettle (to the joy of my wife’s British friends who think we are barbarians for not having one.)

    I was astounded at how fast this thing heats water, maybe 5 minutes for a mostly full pot from tap-cold to full rolling boil.

    The automatic shut-off works perfectly (and has a small light so youneed not guess if it is off or on) and we no longer need to worry about errant gas fumes and whistling kettles.

    The kettle is well-made, attractive and seems to be sturdy and definitely works a treat. Get one and you won’t be dissappointed. Needs a three-prong outlet, so make sure you can use it first. Sides do get hot but the handle stays properly cool and the safety lid works very nicely with no drops or leaks that I have seen.

    I’m from Australia (and have also lived in the UK) and consider an electric teakettle a basic staple in the kitchen.

    Two major gripes:

    1. If you look inside there are actually silicone(?) fasteners used that touch the water – consequently any water you boil in this one smells and tastes like metal and plastic/rubber, even after you’ve brewed it into tea. Completely unacceptable. Baking soda doesn’t help much.

    2. The stainless steel finish is HOT to the touch. Scalding/burning hot. I can’t believe this thing is actually a consumer approved product. There is NO insulation whatsoever, yet this is a counter top product. You might as well just use a pot on the stove. Imagine if your stainless steel toaster burned hot on the outside.

    Three minor gripes:

    1. The lid is not solid and seems like it would break in a fairly short lifespan of use.

    2. You pretty much have to fill it by lifting up the lid. You can’t use the spout for this, like you can with a lot of models.

    3. This thing is heavy. Heavier than a pot you might use to boil the same amount of water. This adds to the risk of burns.

    On the plus side:

    1. It looks fine.

    2. This does boil your water quickly… so if you like the sound of bubbling water and that’s all, then I guess you could buy this.

    Unhappy buyer – this one’s going back. I wouldn’t want this if someone gave it to me, let alone pay for it.

    In replacing our stovetop kettle with an electric one, I was looking for one to match the stainless steel & black appliances in our kitchen, and this one is great. This heats water much faster than the stovetop or microwave, and is pretty quiet in the process; the sides get a little hot during the heating, but the bottom stays cool enough to move straight to the table (sans trivet!) I don’t know if the “scale screen” included will help any, but otherwise I think this a great purchase!

    I gladly agree with most of the reviewers on these pages–this is a nice kettle that boils water very quickly. I like how the switch works, and the little light that tells you it’s on, and I figure that for 40 bucks I got my money’s worth already. But I have a few gripes.

    As some other reviewers noted, the metal outside of this kettle gets much too hot. Don’t do what I did and count on its insulating qualities when the kettle is too close to a plastic bag left on the counter. And don’t touch the thing!

    Also, the little button that opens up the lid, it don’t work so good, so to speak, and if I want to open the kettle I have to pull the lid open with my fingers. That’s not good design, dear Chef’s Choice people.

    I probably bought the wrong kettle. What I really want, and what I’ll look for next time, is a kettle that has a separate heating element, so that the actual kettle is just that, a kettle, with a wide top–so I can heat broth in it for risotto (and then be able to wash it) and boil eggs (this opening is too small). I should have looked around more, or perhaps spent more money. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been pretty pleased with this kettle: if you want a nice-looking appliance to heat water fast, this is it. If you want more, well, keep on looking.

    Update (after three years of almost daily use): the other day, the kettle seemed not to turn itself off properly anymore, as if the switch wouldn’t click all the way up anymore. I took off the bottom and jiggled the mechanism a little bit, and now it’s working properly again. Still, I’m keeping my eye on it and don’t fully trust the auto-off feature anymore.

  5. The carafe detaches from the heat base. The on-off switch is large, lighted and easy to find. The water heats faster than the stove or the microwave. I really like the auto-off feature — no more burnt tea kettles.
