Summary: I've had this kettle for a few months and it is working fine. I have not noticed any issues as described by another reviewer of having to open lid to pour or take the lid off. I really like it. Hit the switch and it does it's thing pretty fast. If I forget about it, it goes off by itself and no harm done. The cups and spoons are unremarkable.
Summary: This is the 5th capresso kettle I have bought ... All of my friends are slowly getting one! It's amazing... Boils fast, looks good, auto shut off. The "tea outfit" is garbage. Should not be included - I'm sure better quality could be found at a dollar store. The mugs aren't even what they have a photo of.
Summary: A good product that looks great in my kitchen. The design is clean and simple, and it's modern style fits well with my other appliances. It boils quickly and maintains heat well. The handle is cool to touch and no steam seeps out to burn my hand—intelligent design. The only thing I'd want is a temperature gauge, but now I'm just getting picky.
Summary: A water kettle has a purpose. This product does that while being beautiful. Nice! One can use this product to boil water for a french press coffee or for tea. When using this product for tea, one is able to see the degree to which the water is about to boil. For the serious hot tea drinker, this is important because near boil for black teas and less for green teas and tisanes. The only negative has been the auto shut off valve not working.
Summary: Great kettle. Boils very quickly, comfortable handle, looks great on the counter. Use it for coffee in the french press and also for an occasional cup of tea. Wish it were dishwasher safe, but not hard to clean. It sure beats the stove top kettle!
Pros: Boils Quickly, Clear Boiling Indicator, Comfortable Grip, Tight Lid
Summary: I received this as a Christmas gift 3 months ago. The plastic bubble over the power indicator fell off down the drain when I emptied the previous days H2O. Three days later it completely dies. Customer Service is willing to replace item only if I mail it back to them. Guess how much that was going to cost me? Over $33 and I live relatively close. This may be good for the casual tea drinker but is a terrible product for the heavy tea drinker.
Summary: I used this for the first time at my cousin's house. I couldn't wait to get one for myself and ditch the old fashioned teakettle on the stove. Love it. It boils water so quickly, and I love that you can see the water boiling (and know how much water is in the kettle.) I bought an extra one for a friend too - he loves it as well.
