Rated 5 out of 5Â by Pastorgirl Love this kettle
As an every morning and many afternoons tea drinker, I am always looking for the fastest way to boil my water. (Starting from cold of course!) I travelled to Scotland this summer and loved how fast their electric kettles boiled the water. I wasn't sure they would work as fast in the U.S. because of the difference in wattage in our outlets. This kettle is wonderful! It boils every bit as fast as the ones in Scotland and it is just fun to see the water come to a full boil. This also has a strainer on the front so if you want to steep in the same pot you boil in, your leaves will not get through. Love it, love it, love it!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by CMarieD16 Boils Water Fast
This boils water fast.
See through glass helps see water boiling
Kettle can sit any direction on base
The lid doesn't stay open when filling kettle with water.
Keep kettle away from your cabinets or the steam will damage them.
Kettle will not shut off if you don't make sure lid is ALL the way closed
Wish handle wasn't so wide, hard to hold for small handed people.
Can only fill kettle just a little over halfway

The metal look on the handle is actually paint which just started to bubble and chip off despite minor use and being well cared for. In addition, the auto shut off has stopped working and the kettle just continues to boil until you shut it off. I bought this kettle specifically for the auto shut off feature. Save your money and choose a better product/company to buy from.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by SierraMist Very stylish, works well
Just replaced the old electric kettle that was solid black and had lasted for years. Was pleasantly surprised at how quickly this boiled water. It has a modern interesting look --love watching the water begin to boil. You have to manually lift the plastic top off the kettle to pour in water--but the top doesn't seem to get hot--so no problems so far.
