Fast, Clean, Well-Designed Workhorse

Amazon Customer "tech toy addict and chef", Amazon
27 November 2009
  • Summary: UPDATE, July 2007: See below for comments about this pot vs. an always-on water pot like the Zojirushi; I still like this appliance a lot, but I love my ne Zojirushi Micom water pot too! I was about to spring for one of the Zojirushi megabuck dispensers, when I spotted this unit. I have always liked Braun (more consistently good than Krups or Cuisinart) for their design and ergonomics. This pot doesn't fail to impress.

Great design - super performance and safe

"dr-dan", Amazon
27 November 2009
  • Summary: The Braun kettle clearly exeeded my expecations. Performance: it is super fast. Faster than a microwave, faster than my old B&D kettle and certainly faster than the stove top. Convenience: it is easy to use, the handle sits well in the hand, the buttons are in easy reach, the water level indicator cannot be more clear to read Safety: I didn't realize when I bought it but it's super-safe.

Clean Design, Very Functional

Amazon Customer "tech toy addict and chef", Amazon
27 November 2009
  • Summary: I got this after destroying a ... Alessi kettly by accidentally letting it boil dry until the plastic parts melted... I was about to spring for one of the Zojirushi megabuck dispensers, when I spotted this unit. I have always liked Braun (more consistently good than Krups or Cuisinart) for their design and ergonomics. This pot doesn't fail to impress. This baby is FAST; It boils water at 1 minute per 8-oz cup (or faster, if you start with hot tap water).

Astoundingly good: like boiling water in Switzerland

Glenn Fleishman, Amazon
27 November 2009
  • Summary: I asked for this tea kettle for my birthday, frustrated with a slow, noisy, hard-to-clean metal kettle used on a natural gas range. Little did I realize that I would fall in love with it so fast. The Braun WK200 is a pinnacle of water-boiling perfection. There is no aspect in which the designers didn't stop and think (or test) how people react. First off, the entire unit is light, easy to move, and fits together beautifully.

Simply a better kettle

hyperbolium, Amazon
27 November 2009
  • Summary: Not only does this improve upon the standard stove-based kettle, but it improves upon the previous generation of fixed-cord electric kettles. The separation of kettle and corded base allows the former to be taken to the sink (or refrigerator if you're boiling pitcher-filtered water) without bother. It makes pouring at the table or in another room easy, as well. The cord can be wound inside the base so that only the needed length is exposed - neatening your countertop.

Great Braun Electric Kettle

P. S. Brady, Amazon
27 November 2009
  • Summary: We were recently in England and saw friends using an electric tea kettle that was different than any we had ever seen in the U.S. I had to have one. When we got home I found this lovely Braun electric kettle and purchased it immediately. It does all we expected. It has a large capacity so you don't have to refill it constantly. It boils very, very quickly and shuts off so I don't have to watch it.

I'm English - and I LOVE this GERMAN kettle!!!

doctordave77 "doctordave", Amazon
27 November 2009
  • Summary: My wife and I bought this kettle about a month ago, and I find myself telling her every other day that I just love this kettle! I count myself as something of an expert, since we've owned a variety of expensive electric kettles here in the States in the past, plus we've had the opportunity to try out various models in Britain on many trips over there to visit the relatives.

Wow! Brains and a Body... What more could you want?

Yvonne "yvonne333", Amazon
27 November 2009
  • Summary: This is nearly the perfect kettle! I bought this because my in-laws are coming for two weeks and my father in-law hates heating water in the microwave (he's a technophobe)... Needless to say, this Braun is a dream! Add the water, place it on the plugged-in base and "BAM" instant hot water! The Braun kettle is almost idiot proof (which will be great for my mother in-law a great deal). When it boils, it shuts off... When you open the lid on the base, it shuts off...

Braun WK200W Aqua Express Electric Water Kettle

liat2768, Rate it all!
22 July 2009
  • 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.
