Replacement will be sent back with the same issue

Roel E., Newegg
22 December 2009
  • Pros: Boils water relatively quickly.
  • Cons: This electric kettle has one major problem: It's leaking water from the on/off switch or right underneath the on/off switch. With the first kettle this problem occurred the first time we tried to use it. With the replacement we received from Newegg (excellent return service, no complaint there) it happened about 2 months after using it (on average we boil water once a day).

No complaints for my first kettle

Erik C., Newegg
16 December 2008
  • Pros: Boils water faster than my microwave and electric range, cordless kettle, stylish (kettle and base), soft touch button.
  • Cons: Hard to clean, noisy, could need some kind of "ding" instead of flipping the switch loudly. Concerned about long term quality. Has a replaceable "filter", but I've never seen it in any store, and I'm not convinced it really does anything.

Fast and Neat

Daniel C., Newegg
29 September 2008
  • Pros: Heats very quickly. Cordless design (when separated from base, that is) very handy. So far, has never dripped while pouring. Seems to be quite well-made, and stainless steel construction is appreciated.
  • Cons: A bit expensive, but quite well-made, which makes up for it. Larger capacity would be nice.

Duct tape required!

Ajjsawat, Amazon
18 February 2013
  • Summary: I had bought this kettle and before the year was up, it's lid would not stay closed. I returned it and within a few more months, the new kettle would not stay closed again (the movable snapping parts get stuck in). I have to use duct tape to keep it closed! For an expensive kettle, it's a real dud!
