This is another item I purchased for my son's dorm room. An electric kettle is a life saver for every undergrad. You have no idea how college students essentially survive off instant oatmeal, instant grits, instant noodles, etc. I bought the same type for my daughters dorm back in 2000.
Great for infant water
Bought this to replace my Baby Brezza that stopped working after less than 6 months. I always have hot water ready and I no longer have to buy bottled water. This gives me peace of mind knowing Im measuring the formula and can quickly warm up alot of water since I have triplets to feed. With winter approaching its become handy for quick before school hot chocolate or afternoon capuccino.
Kettle does exactly what it's supposed to
Heats water rapidly, excellent capacity, one in a long line of Proctor Silex appliances I have purchased over the years. For 11 bucks it's well worth trying it out. Bought two extras for upcoming Christmas presents. People who have never used an electric kettle are generally surprised and say they wonder why they didn't have one long ago. It's perfect for hot tea and instant coffee drinkers. Excellent when you need to add boiling water to a pot of beans or soup to avoid cool down.
Not the best quality but gets the job done
I make tea every morning and wanted an electric kettle that could boil water quickly. I just moved so I am trying to keep costs low and wanted an inexpensive option. This kettle works perfectly well and is very fast; faster than other electric kettles I've used in the past. The unit does feel a bit rickety and I have trouble opening and closing the lid occasionally but for the most part, I am happy with the purchase.
Heats water quickly.
I really don't like this thing. It's very lightweight including the base. The cord for the base is short and stiff. Once the pitcher is off the base it slides all over the place. The base goes up inside the pitcher by about 3 inches, again it's awkward to removed the pitcher from the base especially when it's full of boiling water. I think I lifted high enough then it gets caught and that's not a good thing when it's full of boiling water. The absolute worst and most annoying feature of the product is the pour spout!, it's big enough but there's a fine mesh screen inside the pitcher, great idea if you don't put it down 2" below the spout so when you pour the water rushes over it instead of through it! I'd like to meet ingenious who designed that. The 2nd thing wrong with the spout is the cover has a slotted strainer over the top of the spout and I have no idea because the slots are big enough they would not hold back much and it makes for a really messy pour. Even when I poured slowly the water sort of bubbled and splashed so I have to lift the cover fully to pour otherwise it's just a big mess. If I had realized it had an exposed heating element before I bought it I would not have gotten it. The good thing about an exposed element is it heats the water very quickly. The bad thing about the element is it gets dirty and caked with minerals very quickly requiring a soak in vinegar or lemon juice or some cleaning product. In other words it's a pain to maintain. I am certain that after a good soak in vinegar I'm going to have to scrub the element with some kind of brush then rinse it a bunch of times to get all the gunk out. If you have hard water like I do this is going to be a twice a month job at least. I would not recommend this kettle. BTW the packaging looked more expensive than the actual kettle.
This is the worst designed and constructed kettle I have ever come across. My previous PS kettle was good and will be pressed back into service while I look for a new one, and it won't be Proctor Silex! If you have 3 arms and don't mind boiling water going all over the place, then this kettle is for you, otherwise steer clear.
