Excerpt: But I like I said before, it is not so difficult to clean the kettle, so I can do it whenever I want. The design itself was great. You can also choose the black color if you don’t like white color. The only thing that I don’t like about this product is that the water kettle itself still made of plastic. It would be great if I can have more than a plastic water kettle for USD 175 electronic water cooker.
Summary: This was my first electric kettle. What a great kitchen must! I loved this product. It died 53 weeks after purchase with moderate use. After reading other reviews, I realize that customer service is practically non-existant in the U.S. because all the customer service folks are overseas and could really care less about us. Sadly in the trash it goes. No more Braun products.
Summary: Ok this is an odd time to write a review - this kettle just died! BUT it lasted for 8 years being used 4-5 times a day (making coffee and tea and boiling water for any cooking I was doing) survived being dropped twice and slogged on reliably. I LOVED this little kettle.
Anyway, looking for a replacement online it seems that the newer version costs a jaw dropping $160 - I bought mine originally for $60.
Summary: I've had 2 of these kettles in the past year and both have died. We probably use it 10 times a day. I bought it based on the great reviews but it's not that great when you go through 2 per year.
It cost me $40 so I'm surprized that it is so expensive now.
Summary: I'm very surprised to see this kettle is still available because when I called Braun to report that mine had broken (part of the handle broke apart somehow, exposing the switch that turned on the element -- eventually my son ripped that off & lost it and the kettle won't work at all), they claimed that they were no longer selling it so couldn't send me a replacement for the one that had broken and since I didn't have the receipt, they couldn't send me a check for the...
Summary: I bought one of those 3 years ago for 99$ (made in Germany) and I was very happy.I needED another one for my boat-now the same product but made in Czech Republic-charge of 150$ is JUST RIDICULOUS.
Summary: I love this product so much, I am actually using the 2nd one. The reason why I had to buy the 2nd one is because the detachable filter got ripped, and the replacement cost was too much, and I used it for over 3 years.
I expected the filter of my 2nd one to last as long as the last one (3+ years). But it got ripped within the first 6 months. I'm very disappointed. I'm still using the product, but I see white calcium flakes in my tea.
