Summary: Worked great for a year. Than all of a sudden the auto shut off stopped working. The kettle caused steam/water damaged to the bottom of our kitchen cabinet because the auto shut off stopped working as we were getting ready for work. Got a huge shock when we realized the kettle was still boiling water 10 minutes after we had turned it on. HUGE safety hazard!!!
Summary: Nice looking and works great. Change in design for on-off switch not so exciting from older model but kettle still does the job well. I use our mostly for hot chocolate in the winter. Fast, easy worm up of 1 cup or 10.
