    Good option for a plastic free* electric kettle

    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.

    Speedy Hamilton Beach Cool Touch Electric Kettle

    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.

    3+ years later, still going strong

    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...

    perfect product

    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!!!

    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.

    Wonderful product

    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.

    Critical design flaw

    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.

    Great product - never can leak!

    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.

    great plastic-free electric kettle

    I've owned and used the hamilton beach cool-touch stainless steel electric kettle for over 2 weeks now and it works great. Only the filter and the lid has plastic parts. To avoid having any plastic in contact with the water, I removed the filter and I also open the lid when I pour water (pours well, no dripping). You could keep the lid close and have no contact with plastic if you pour slowly. I don't remove the lid when I fill it with water, I carefully avoid pouring water into the small hole (the sensor for automatic power-off?) at the top of the handle (I've read a review that says it leaked from the bottom of the handle... probably because water gets into it). I always pour water out as soon as it boils to avoid buildup at the bottom of the pot. I use it over 10 times a day and I've already seen some spots at the bottom. There's no coil inside the pot, it's very easy to clean. It takes 4.5 minutes to boil a full pot. It may be a little loud when boiling, but I have no problem with it. A bigger problem is that it creates lots of steam when the water boils. The automatic power off function only kicks in 35 seconds after I hear water boiling, creating lots of steam. Since this is the only plastic-free stainless steel electric kettle in a reasonable price range ($42.99) I've seen, I can live with the cons and I'm satisfied with the product. I just hope that it will last long!

    I really like this kettle!

    I first purchased the less expensive GE 1.7L Electric Kettle which I quickly returned. The water level indicator meant that plastic was in contact with the hot water....Plus the tiny opening at the top along with the attached lid meant that it was difficult to use and clean. This Hamilton Beach kettle was worth the extra expense. The fact that it is double walled means that it is cooler to the touch and that the water stays warmer longer. My main complaint with this kettle is that the swing-top lid was a little awkward for me to use. My solution was to substitute a 25 cent glass lid found at a resale store. I would purchase this kettle again, especially if the lid were modified.
