Q: Other brands of similar kettles boast that any plastic that comes in contact with the water is BPA free. I'm guessing that the water level indicator window is plastic on this kettle. Does anyone know if it is made of BPA free plastic? Fingers crossed!
A: According to reviewers at a competitor site: ===================== It is completely stainless steel on the inside aside from two small pieces of plastic. One that seals the thermometer at the bottom and another that connects to the water level gauge on the handle. According to Cuisanart these are BPA free. By ablomination on January 18, 2013 The interior of the kettle is all stainless steel, except for a couple of plastic parts. The rubber seals around the temperature probe and of course the water level gauge which is plastic and the removable water screen. By Steven Arellano on January 18, 2013 Yes, the border of the filter is made of plastic. The water level is lower than the filter so it only passes through it at the end. You'll be hard pressed to find an electric tea kettle that doesn't have a plastic filter. Although the box clearly states that it is BPA free.
