I absolutely love this kettle! It gets used several times a day in our house. It is easy to use, works perfectly, and looks lovely sitting out on the counter to boot. I couldn't be happier with it!
Not only is this kettle nice to look at, it heats up quickly, holds more water than previous kettles I have owned and is very quiet. I gave it 4 stars on "easy to use" because it is a little heavy. It might not be good for kids/seniors due to the heft. It's taller than previous kettles I have had such as Melita, Sunbeam, but has about the same footprint on the counter. I highly recommend it!! I will be buying this one as a gift as well.
I have used many electric kettles in the past. I am always on the lookout for one that is completely free of plastic parts.
Pros - Beautiful, ceramic, boils water fast, free of plastic parts.
Con - No water level indicator.
[...] most stainless steel models feel hotter than this one after the water has boiled. The base stays cool so you can have one hand on the handle and another on the base when you're pouring. Love it.
