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.
