The Cuisinart QuicKettle doesn't just boil water – it serves up those early mornings with a cup of tea that makes the day worth looking forward to. From cold days at the office, to soup or hot cocoa enjoyed with a friend, one touch is all it takes to make up to half a liter of cozy goodness. Enjoy pour over coffee in an instant and make just the right amount using the clear measuring window. Also keep peace of mind with automatic electrical shut off and anti-overheat features. The cordless connection between the base and kettle lets you take your teapot anywhere, while insulated sidewalls help keep water at the perfect temp until you arrive at your destination. The QuicKettle makes any room warmer - no matter what fills your own personal cup of cheer.
This is the second one of these little electric kettles that I am purchasing. The first one is such a dream and continues to serve our family so well, that I wanted to have a second one in reserve.
The water silently boils up quickly (not the annoying whistling kettle) and then the kettle turns off automatically, so that if you get distracted doing something else, there is no danger. The hot water just sits there waiting for you when you come back.
This is an extremely compact, light-weight little kettle. It does not take up much counter space and is modest in appearance. I like it but could use just a bit more capacity. That's my only reason for 4 stars not 5, and probably unfair.
I bought this kettle for work, and I love it. It does exactly what it's supposed to do; heat water quickly. The carafe is plastic, but there's no smell and no taste, and it holds heat well. The lid doesn't come off, so you can't reach in and clean it, but you're only supposed to put water in it, so it's not a huge deal.
