    Simply Boils Water! Great for Camping, Too!

    Customer review by Chuck893

    5.0 stars by Chuck893

    We have not been using this kettle long, but it is exactly as advertised. All it does is boil water, for tea, instant coffee, instant soup, instant ramen... We originally wanted it for our very small tent camper for when outdoor conditions are seriously foul enough that we don't want to go out to light the stove but are frantic for a cuppa coffee. So long as we have 110 volts in the camper we can boil water in perfect safety—no flame, no carbon monoxide. We now take it out of the trailer and keep it on the kitchen counter because it's so handy. The single best thing for me is the automatic shut off. I have totaled more stovetop teapots by forgetting and boiling them dry (I hate the sound of the whistles so I take them off). I've had other electric hot pots, forgot them, boiled them dry and ruined them. This one, used properly according to instructions, cannot be boiled dry. The water reaches a full rolling boil in minutes, then shuts off with an audible click. If you forget it there is no harm done. Being able to take it off the base makes it easy to fill, empty and clean. We haven't had it long enough to speak to durability, but I would expect it to last for many years.

    I use it at the Dental Practice I work at. We keep it at the front desk and serve hot tea and cocoa with it. It never disappoints. Its easy to fill, heats up quickly and is easy to clean. The best feature is that it turns off on its own and the water stays hot for a long period of time.

    This is everything I was looking for in an economical electric kettle. However, I do wish they would say what kind of plastic it was made of. Does it have BPA or any other harmful chemicals in it?

    The description says it is cordless then it also says it has cord storage on base. If it's cordless why does it have cord storage?

    • the pot sits on a base- the pot is cordless- the base has to plug with electricity to heat the element in the pot

    • Cordless in this case means the kettle lifts off the base for portability in the kitchen - i.e. the kettle itself is cordless. The base has the cord (~3ft) that plugs into 110V.

    • The kettle itself can be lifted directly off the base when it's hot. There's no cord attached to it.

    • The cord is connected to a base with electrical contacts that mate with the kettle to heat the water. Lifting the kettle off from the base makes it "cordless." The chord wraps around the underside of the base for those who store the kettle rather than leaving it plugged in on their kitchen counter.

    • The pot is detachable and cordless, the base is not.

    • Because it allows you to 'hide' the extra cord from the base to the wall socket. The only issue I found is the base is very light and it lifts each time I lift the Kettle.

    • The base is corded, the pot sits on the base...therefore the POT is cordless (facepalm).

    • The power cord is attached to the base where the kettle SITS on to allow it to be powered, but the kettle by itself doesn't need a cord.

    • The cord storage is under the charging plate which you lift kettle off of to pour. It is not connected in anyway to the kettle

    • You have to keep the unti connected to the base while the water is heating up. However, once it's boiling, it will automatically kick off, then you can lift the unit away from the base and pour freely - this is the cordless part of the operation :)

    Inside my kettle there is just an open metal coil. I wasn't sure if I am missing a piece to separate the water and the coil or I should just pour water in and submerge the metal coil.

    • Just pour water onto the metal heating element
      by daniboy10/20/2014

    • Yes, you pour directly into the kettle with metal coil.

    • Yes, the water comes in contact with the heating element when you fill it.

    • Yes, right onto the plated metal coil; no parts missing. Remember, the kettle is for boiling water ONLY not cooking. Thus no cleanup worries.

    • Yep, just pour it in.

    • Yes, you just pour water in and submerge the coil. If you do not *completely* submerge it, it can overheat and burn out. It's best to have at least an inch or more of water above the highest point on the coil to insure that it cannot boil off and expose the coil to air. If you have closed and locked the lid, the steam pressure inside will automatically shut the unit off so it cannot boil dry so long as you started with plenty of water.

    • no- only water

    • No, it's just for water since the heating element comes in direct contact with the contents. Though, I suppose you 'could', but I wouldn't.

    • You could but NOT RECOMMENDED as it is not intended for that purpose. It is for boiling water ONLY.
      by esdubya7/24/2014
      Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)
    • No. It is designed and intended to boil clean water only. It has only one speed—boiling—and because it has an exposed, non-removable coil it would be very hard to adequately clean. There are wide-mouth hotpots with enclosed coils that can be dialed down. They are suited to heating all kinds of foods and soups. This pot is for boiling water only.

    • I would not recommend it - the heating coil is exposed at the bottom - this is just to heat water
      by FLWAN6/9/2013
      Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)
    • Simple answer - NO. The heating coil is exposed inside the unit, it is simply a water boiler, nothing more, nothing less. If you put soup inside of it, I assume it would burn to the heating coil and it would be very very difficult to clean, and would most likely not even cook the soup, just merely burn the soup around the coil.
