Pros: Decent price. Steel. Detachable base. No need to fiddle with cords. You do not get burnt when pouring hot water. Lid stays on tight,which is good. My old kettle would have loose lid, and every time I poured water the hot steam burned my hands. This kettle does not have this problem.
Pros: Feels solid. Pours without spilling. Odd filter for the spout that can be removed. Feels stable on the base and when you are holding it. Makes water hot eventually. Water elvel indicator works well.
Cons: Metal outside gets hotter then the plastic kettle this replaced.
Summary: 2. The walls should have been double, so that the hot water stays hot longer, and the exterior isn't as dangerously hot to the touch.
Pros: It works, doesn't leak and looks pretty good. The spout is designed especially well and does not dribble when you pour out water.
Cons: 1. It has a bunch of plastic stuff on the inside, which is not necessary. For example, the underside of the lid, where hot steam condenses and drips back into the container, is some sort of black plastic. I bought this steel kettle in order to avoid having my hot water leech potentially dangerous stuff from plastic. That failed and I'm disappointed. I also think it might affect the flavor of the water. I wouldn't use this to heat water for young boys, who are especial...
Pros: I bought this after reading good reviews about it on other sites. I've had it for about 9 months and its held up just fine. It boils water quickly, shuts off by itself. The pitcher gets hot - which makes sense because it's just a steel pot with boiling water in it, but the counter underneath doesn't get heated and the handle is cool.
Cons: No real cons. The water seems to boil a little longer before it shuts off than when it was new. According to the directions, it may not shut off if you don't snap the top down (which is easy to forget to do), but it has always shut down for me.
Pros: This kettle is great. It boils 1.5L of water within 5 minutes. My wife and I both like this kettle because it is easy to use, fast, and looks nice. It has a small filter at the spout which is nice feature if you use it to brew tea. The outside stays clean and is easy to clean since the electric components are on the heating base. It easily comes off the the heating base. It doesn't get too hot on the outside but its definitely warm.
Cons: The power cord is a bit short. I would rather it be a bit longer, but in any case its decent.
