    1.7 L ONLY. THE PLASTIC RING INSIDE WITH MESH FILTER IS FILTER HOLDER AND CAN TOUCH THE BOILING WATER. THE PLASTIC SWITCH IS EASY TO BREAK.

    this kettle has lasted me a good 4 years and counting. I find this kettle is made very well. the spout does have a half cover over it to prevent splashing. it does not interfere with pouring it at all. My kids have safely used this kettle. the measurement on the side is in liters instead of cups. doesnt really matter. ive used this kettle so much that i know how much to put in it anyway. it is very cute sitting on the counter. the auto shut off is great. It has stood up to a good 4 years of everyday use. The only complaint i would have is the red paint chipping off around the edges a little. The inside filter in the spout is a good idea. Someone mentioned below about burning your fingers reaching in to get the filter. your not supposed to do that when its hot....um....Anyway i really like it and the stainless steel inside really stays clean. the switch on the bottom has a lite in it so u know its on. the switch is not flimsy as someone mentioned unless they cheapened up on materials since i got mine. I really like it.

    I decided to give my kitchen a pop of color to brighten it up so bought this online. Wish I had seen it first. Its smaller than I expected but since I only usually boil water for a cup of tea or coffee, I can live with it. The spout is actually half a spout - ie the opening is half blocked off making it hard to fill via the spout...... the lid opening is not that large either so the simple task of filling it is unnecessarily difficult/awkward. The on off switch is particularly disappointing as it is a little white plastic stick, like a piece of plastic drinking straw that does not look good or give me confidence that it will serve me for a long time. I am English and probably have 4 cups of tea a day and my hubby has coffee, so I am using it frequently so I wish I had taken the time to see it and the flaws would have been obvious. For $31 I decided to keep it for a while and then find a better replacement. The trouble is I also got the toaster oven and wanted them to match. The only great thing is the color.

    Great Tea Kettle for the Forgetful Person

    Customer review by DRVLover

    I love tea and drink it every day. I have always had a tea kettle for my gas stove, but the problem I have run into so much lately is I put my water on for tea and then go into my office and forget about the tea kettle on the stove. It doesn't whistle so good anymore so 45 mintues later as it is boiled dry and I finally listen to my dog alerting me to this... well it happened one too many times. So I went online found this great kettle and ordered it immediately. LOVE IT. Shuts off automatically. So now when I forget I just reheat it. It is amazing how fast it heats up. My only DISLIKE is that it doesn't heat it as hot as my gas stove. As soon as it starts to boil it shuts it off, so my tea doesn't stay hot as long. But it really is what I needed. PLUS it is beautiful red and doesn't take up room on my stove. Buy it!

    I have a tiny kitchen, and I live on a tight budget. I ordered this and immediately had buyer's remorse. I thought it was too big and unnecessary, and intended to return it soon after it arrived. But . . . after three weeks of 3x/day use, WOW do I love this thing! Even my boys started drinking tea because boiling water is so convenient. Best purchase I've made in a long, long time!

    Not much to say. It looks beautiful. Water boils quickly. It is sturdy. Handle comfortable (and lid does not get in the way as mentioned in another review). Has a window to see level of water. Lid comes off without too much effort. I have no complaints whatsoever.

    I am very pleased with this one. NO plastic taste like the one that I had before and did not want to get another one that was plastic. The only thing that I don't like is the handle because they put it on top and that makes it awkward to pore the water out. They should of put it on the side where it would be more natural to pore the water from. Plus you don't have your hand over the hot steam that is escaping from the lid.

    My main reasons for buying this was certain utilitarian features: A manual lid - no levers or buttons to break. You pull it off and pop it on. I find the lid easy to pull off and put on, just put your hand over the handle like you are going to pour, extend your fingers around the lid knob and pluck it off, using the handle for a bit of leverage if needed. Easy peasy. Though not as efficient, but it can also be filled via the spout. Wider base - my last kettle broke because the cat jumped on the counter one night and pulled it off. I thought a broader base would make it steadier. That may be a minor detail to some people but I have a lot of cats. I drink a lot of tea, and I boil a pot of water to make the dish washing water hotter than normal. The handle is nicely made for pouring. I boil six full pots of water per day, and this product is doing a great job so far.

    The tea kettle heats water so fast, it's amazing!! Love the safety feature of shutting off automatically!! We had a water cooler with a hot water tape, it heated the water constantly causing our electric bill to be higher than we liked. Our kilowatt useage has gone down with the tea kettle, because now we heat water when we need it not constantly. I guarantee if we ever need another tea kettle I will replace it with the one exactly like the kettle we are using now! WE LOVE IT!!!!!!!

    Love it! Comes off of base, making it easy to serve. Great color. When I took it out of the box the kettle had a little scratch on it. Other than that very pleased.

    Can I only boil 1 cup at a time if I want to in this Hamilton Beach 10 cup electric red kettle, or do I need to boil more. Some electric kettles will not boil unless you put in at least 4 cups of water.

    • A. You pull the lid off with the little knob. No levers or hinges to break. Just put your hand over the handle like you are going to pick it up, then extend your fingers to the knob of the lid and pull. If needed, the palm of your hand on the handle will provide extra leverage and it just pops off. Very easy indeed. A great utilitarian product.
