    I bought this kettle as a replacement for another GE electric kettle bought in a Walmart store about 5 years ago. We loved that one and it worked great until it just stopped functioning one day. I went back to the store to get a new one to find they stopped carrying it, so had to order this one online. Apparently they have "updated" the new one so that the shape is much taller and thinner: this means it's much harder to clean inside since you can't get your hand in the opening and it's difficult to see how much water you are putting in. They've also made the cord about a foot or two shorter so I can't plug it into the floor level outlet where the old one was plugged in and have to keep it on the counter cluttering up valuable workspace. The taller design also means that when it starts to boil the whole pot teeters as though it's going to spill over. Can't say I'm very happy with the "updated" version and will see if I can return it.

    I bought this for my husband and in the few days we've had it it's been used several times. Heats water very quickly. The size is just perfect. We have a french press coffee maker and can make coffee for him, tea for me, and even an instant soup for the kiddo all on one kettles worth. I love the auto shut off feature since hubby tends to forget things, and the fact that it separates from the base (and thus the cord) it is very convenient. The heating element is completely sealed away from the water chamber, so cleaning will never be an issue. I'd recommend this to anyone in need of a kettle. We are getting rid of our regular coffeemaker (which seems to take about 25 minutes even after being cleaned and descaled). This thing boils water in 3-4 minutes (the whole 1.7 liters) and with a 5 minute steep time, the press gets us coffee faster and better. This kettle has made all the difference.

    I bought this product for a few dollars more than a similar product by Aroma offered on Amazon because it has a 2 year warranty vs a 1 year warranty. It replaced a Protor-Silex one I had bought at Wal-Mart a few years earlier that stopped working. I really like the separable base feature and most aspects of the kettle except for the water level indicator window. The window has several problems. It fogs up badly so that you can't read the writing on it until the water level is above the writing. Once filled, the window often will not indicate the water level is below the minimum level no matter how empty the kettle is due to the fact that the window is not actually open to the water, but is filled by a tube that joins the inside of the kettle and the tube is above the minimum level. Also, the level indicated is wildly off actual unless the kettle is near perfectly level. Finally, the window is rather small and concealed behind the wider handle, making it particularly hard to read if you are holding the kettle by the handle while filling it. The kettle is also much noisier than my plastic Protor-Silex kettle was.

    Don't take me wrong that I don't like the kettle. It's actually the best among those I bought. The only frustrating part is the removable filter. I use my kettle for 10 months, works really great. However, I found out the filter was missing during my routine cleaning. So I went to Walmart store and go on GE website to try to locate a replacement. It's pretty frustrating while I made couple calls to seek help. I was pretty shocked that they don't carry that little part. Well, if you have such a great kettle, you'd better have a good supporting system for it. I don't mind spending couple bucks on a replacement of the removable filter in a regular base. It's such a waste that I'll have to throw my great kettle away and get a new one just because of that small removable filter!

    I had an electric kettle for three years that finally died and bought this GE electric kettle to replace it.the features are awsome iT's a handsome kettle heats up quickly and stays fairly warm for a while. It lifts off the base leaving the cord behind and has a shut off switch. I use mine several times a day, for tea and to heat water for baby bottles. I love it!

    Pros: Compared with an earlier version of this kettle, I love the convenience of this electric kettle - It looks good, functions well, heats quickly, small counter top footprint, easy to handle, and the flip up lid is perfect. Cons: Finding the "full" mark on this kettle is for the birds and is a pain compared with the earlier version. There should be a fill guide on the interior so that one can visually see from the top when it is properly filled [like in the old version]. The fill gage vial is hidden in the interior of the hand hold and impossible to read while filling the kettle and so one has to fill it "blind" and constantly setting it on the counter to read the fill gage vial. Conclusion: Great electric hot water kettle with only one draw back. Still over all it is an improvement to the old type by GE. If GE has solved the leaking due to accidental starting of a "dry kettle as they say they have, then I will be very satisfied and will put up with the inconvenience of figuring out when the pot is full to the right level. [We have ruined 3 pots this way]

    I looked around a lot, and this is far superior to anything else in terms of price / features. Every other competitor was nearly twice the price and more. And this one, while half the price, doesn't feel like a compromise at all, It's as well-made and attractive as its far more expensive competitors.

    I'm not the type to carry on about small kitchen appliances, but when a product is excellent, I think I should share my thoughts... I bought this kettle as a replacement for an older, well used, GE electric kettle, the 32 oz. plastic variety, which worked, but was nothing to write home about. 1: This kettle is FAST... a full pot is boiling in about 4 minutes 2: I am very happy with the electrical connection, the base stays plugged in and the pot itself is detachable, just lift it off the base, a big improvement over the short, fixed cord on the old one... 3: Greater capacity... everybody gets some... 4: Well designed spout... it doesn't dribble all over the counter with a slow pour. 5: Good looking.... you can't really go wrong with brushed stainless. The only 'con' I can see is that the top opening is on the small side... my hand won't fit in there to clean it, and my only other question is reliability. If it lasts like the previous one I bought, I will be very impressed. SUMMARY: 30 BUCKS WELL SPENT!!!

    The tea kettle is modern looking and boils quickly. I use to own the hot water pumper and it use to get hot in my kitchen as it did not have a shut off. The water boils quickly and turns off automatically. Looks great in stainless steel because it looks great with my other appliances. The measuring window fogs up, but you just need to tilt it back a bit while filling so that the water clears it. Great tea kettle. I used a more expensive stainless steel tea kettle in Australian (about $125.00) and this one is just as good. Excellent price. The short cord is fine. I made it shorter by wrapping it underneath the base wrap so the cord is not as visible, like most kitchen appliances. Just bought it a month ago and love it. I don't know much about the durability of it yet. I only paid about $20.00 for it, so I think I already got my money's worth.

    Does this kettle have an on/off switch, or does it only turn on by plugging it in. Also, does it let you know when the water is hot, like a whistle or light?

    • A. There's a little plastic lever below the handle to turn it on and off. To turn it on, you push the lever down and it lights up blue. When the kettle shuts off (from you manually picking the carafe up off of the base or automatically after the water is thoroughly heated), the lever pops back up and the light goes off.

    • A. There is an on/off switch with a blue light in it. It looks like a lever located right below the handle. When the water reaches boiling temperature, it shuts off automatically and the light goes off too.

    • A. yes, it has an on/off switch. However it will turn itself off when it comes to a full boil. And it turns off automaticly when you pick it off the base. No whistle or light but I love it anyway. It boils the full pot within 3 or 4 minutes. Lesser amounts naturally boil in less time.

    • A. Dear Kalano, If you look at the picture on the Web page you will see the switch below the handle of the kettle. You press down to start the boiling cycle. It will light up with a blue color when the kettle is on. Once the water boils the switch clicks off and the light goes out. You can also shut the kettle off by lifting it from the base.
