Stylish Kettle perks up my kitchen

Customer review by ABQSavvyShopper

My Cherry red electric cordless kettle is an attractive and useful addition to my kitchen. I use it several times a day for tea or coffee and even to add boiling water to a pot on the stove for pasta. It is so much faster than the stove. I wanted a kettle large enough to serve tea to friends, and this is perfect for that occasion. It is also useful on a daily basis for my own tea needs. My only issue is that it requires 4 cups for a minimum boil, which is more than I need at a time usually. The cordless feature is delightful, and I've had no trouble with the base. Fill it up, set it down, and click it on---boiling hot water in minutes.

Kettle is beautiful and functional. My wife ordered this online and was delivered to the store in about 1 week. She was very happy with it as it is exactly as pictured in the web site. She likes the shape and also the color is very nice. So far the finish has been durable and not easily scratched. The only downside might be that compared to the previous plastic kettle we had, this is slightly heavier, not as easy to see how much water is inside, and slightly noisier when boiling compared to a plastic kettle. These are all very minor points and I would still buy and recommend this model.

This kettle works well and looks great. No metalic taste. The only problem I have with the kettle is it doesn't lock or fit securely on the heating base. Just be careful when putting it on the base.

Not good for people with weak hands

The design of this kettle did not take into account people with weak hands. The balance of the pot is front heavy and the handle is to thick for a good grip. Since you can't use a second hand to help you (the kettle is hot), it hurts my hand and causes problems fillings & pouring the kettle. The kettle does what it is supposed to do. It is fast. We do not have any problems with the functionality of the kettle. People with arthritis or weak hands should look elsewhere because of the balance problem.

I do like this electric kettle. Took me a while to decide on it, I read a ton of reviews online. I think for the price it is a great value. I love the design, it's very cute! I really wanted to get it in red, but it was available only in silver at the time of my purchase. It does what it says, boils water. However, the features that I don't like are the opening for the water and the time it takes to boil it. The botton on the handle opens up the top to pour water through, but it doesn't open all the way which makes it hard to pout water. I don't drink tap water so I guess it's easier for me to pour from a bottle, but I did try to boil tap water and had trouble filling it from the sink. The second thing that I'm not too happy about is the time it takes to boil water. If it's full it can take literally 5 minutes. Maybe this is a norm for electric kettles, but my previous one (Krups) would take only a minute to two to get the job done. That one lasted me about 5 years. So in comparisson to my old one this one does take forever to boil water.

Bought this for my mother in-law to replace another one from a different company that had broken. She loves this one. She loves the design better than the other brand and the rich color. It works just as designed.

I really like the looks of the kettle. It heats water quite fast. The things I don't care for are the fact that you have to heat a minimum of one liter and it is hard to see the water level because the see-through area is behind the handle and the water doesn't show up very well. Otherwise, I think it's great. I can't rate durability since I've only had it a few weeks.

Works very well & I like the color. Water level indicator easy to read, it automatically shuts itself off after the water boils & beeps to let you know its done. Its faster than a tradditional kettle. The only thing I don't like is that it's very difficult to manually clean the inside & get all the way down to the bottom without a sponge-on-a-stick type thing (the manufacturer recommends you boil a pot of water with a teaspoon of tartar sauce to clean the bottom). You definitely need to boil 3 or 4 pots of water before drinking out of it to eliminate the 'new' smell. All-in-all its a great kettle & I'm glad I purchased it.
