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: Had this product for about two years now and still running as if new. Boils water fast than stovetop. Great capacity (7 cups). Love the auto-shutt of feature and the security feature that it will no turn on if there is no water in the kettle. Can only highly recommend this product.
