Good option for a plastic free* electric kettle

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I say this is a good option for a plastic free kettle, because there is no plastic in contact with the water while it is in the kettle. The lid is made of plastic on the inside, but I just remove the lid while the water is heating. The auto shut off does not work if the lid is not in place, but I am always standing by so that is not an issue for me because I can manually turn it off when the water is as hot as I want it. One thing I found interesting that no one else had mentioned in their reviews was the capacity. The manufacturer claims an 8 cup capacity, but when filled to the max water level, it only holds 5 cups. Overall, I am happy with my purchase. It heats water faster than a tea kettle on the stove, and I can work my way around the plastic lid components. Oh, and mine does not dribble when I pour the water out like some people mentioned. Don't know if this is because the lid is removed or not.

LOVE this Hamilton Beach Cool Touch Electric Kettle. We've had it for about a month, and only wish we'd discovered it sooner. The outside is not completely cool-touch, but it's much better than most others. The appearance is very sleek. The inside is great - stainless steel with no coils touching your liquid. There is plastic on the lid, but it's not in much contact with the liquid except for the time when the liquid is boiling and steams up the top and perhaps when pouring out. Overall, it's minimal compared to most others I've seen so far. Great value - would have expected to have to pay more. Would have been an absolute *5* stars IF there were NO plastic at all inside and IF completely cool-touch. But, still very happy with this kettle.

I'm writing this review over three years after buying the product... I bought this kettle because it was the only one I could find that was entirely stainless steel and seamless inside. Most of them had silicone grommets for handles, clear plastic viewing windows, etc, etc... I've been using it 2 or 3 times per day for over 3 years now and it still works perfectly and looks nice. Not much more to say for it...

Sleek looking, fast heating, no plastic part(except the filter at the mouth of the kettle, which I think can be removed). But I would rather lable it "warm touch" instead of "cool tough" since the kettle wall does get warm as the water is heated. However, it is not warm enough to even burn an infant, which is perfect for our family. Love love love it!!!

The switch does not shut off automatically when removed from the power plate. If it did I would give this product 5 stars. It is easy to fill from the flexible sprayer at the sink, heats very quickly and stays warm quite a while. I like the design of the power plate, it stays dry even if there is a little drip from the pot. In an electric kettle you get what you pay for with this one. The handles stay cool and so will not distort with time as others do. It is difficult to see the max level line inside the kettle but one can get used to it.

Attractive but a big drawback in longevity

A good looking kettle with a serious drawback. There is a water filter in the spout that is essential for turning off the kettle when boiling. This filter deteriorates over time and needs replacing. No problem - what can a 50 cent filter cost? Well from Hamilton Beach its about $14 because you MUST buy a new lid assembly at $10 plus postage. Though the filter is easy to replace Hamilton Beach WILL NOT SELL IT TO YOU without the unneeded lid. So much for helping the environment. Don't be a sucker buy another brand.

Surprising to see such a innovative design from Hamilton Beach, but it is so. No plastic in contact with the water (not even a useless viewing window), seamless stainless steel construction and wonderful lid. The lid pivots from open to close, and has a neat design. It is hard to explain, but it works well. If you fill the kettle half way, it boils in around two mintues, maybe four if filled all the way. It boils about 8 seconds before it shuts off. Feels sturdy and is double-walled to keep the outside from getting burning hot. Wish it was a bit cheaper, but I see why it has to cost this much.

I loved this kettle from day 1. But after about a month, the auto shut-off stopped working and the water would boil until I realized that it didn't shut off automatically. Hamilton Beach is a great company though, I called and told them the problem. This kettle is obsolete so I had to pick a different replacement and they are sending it to me.

Critical design flaw
6/13/2011

Customer review by Teafan

2.0 stars 6/13/2011 by Teafan
by Teafan

The bad: This kettle has a critical design flaw - the pouring orifice doesn't have the correct angle to guide the water flow, therefore when you pour water out it drips a lot. The good: I like the double wall construction which makes it both safer and more efficient. This would be a nice product if they modify the pouring port just a little bit.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

Bought this after much research and having two other product start to leak from the clear panel on the side which shows the water level. This kettle has a totally enclosed chamber for water so there is no chance of leaking. Of course you don't have a water level indicator, but it has an easy opening lid to check the water level from the top. Boils fast, pores OK, and not too noisy. Recommended.

  • A. Yes, there's a base with a lever you push & it lights up when "on." It shuts off in a few minutes once it has boiled. Then you lift off the kettle, which is what makes it cordless. Even the base holds the cord completely out of the way while the two parts are together.
