Summary: Can't beat it for the price. I was looking for a replacement for a similar Black and Decker teapot that I used for over 20 years. No bells and (literally) no whistles on this one - it simply boils water.
Summary: I had been looking for a kettle to replace my fifteen year old made in England Rival kettle but I didn't want a kettle that looked like a coffee pot like so many new electric kettles do. This dome shaped kettle has the look I wanted and the price was right. So far it is working perfectly. I have no complaints.
Summary: We bought this kettle at a good price, and at first it seemed good. Boils water quickly. However, it burned out in a few months. B D sent a new one under warranty and the second one also burned out in a few months. Also, it is difficult to tell how much water is in the kettle - no external indicator. Save yourself the hassle and do not buy this kettle.
Summary: I needed a way to heat water for cleaning vacant apartments. I used to use a hot plate and stock pot, but this is much more convenient. The water heats quickly and is easily poured. The compact size is also a plus. Perfect for what I needed!
Summary: I received the electric teakettle, was billed 399.99 which was not the price, returned the teakettle and am still waiting for a REFUND to appear on my credit card statement. Very dissatified and Not happy!!
