o.k. for 7years.

Marcia V. Ormsby, Amazon

  • Summary: I have just lost this little kettle, which did the job for 7 years but just stopped working. Not a bad choice but for the price, should have lasted longer. Pros: fast water heating, sleek design. Cons: pop open lid while pouring may burn your hand, hidden light and on off switch.

Looks good, but quit working after 18 months

S2art, Amazon
2 September 2010
  • Summary: My cheap-ish Black & Decker stainless steel electric kettle lasted a couple of weeks past the warranty period, so I thought that I'd spend more money on a better quality kettle as a replacement. I chose the Cuisinart CJK-17, primarily based on good reviews I found on a number of consumer websites.

$30 per month - so not worth it

Marc D. Donner "nygeek", Amazon
30 January 2010
  • Summary: Our old electric kettle, after about six years of daily service, stopped functioning. My wife and I did some research and settled on this one, partly because of its size, appearance, and the Cuisinart reputation. On November 12 of 2009 we ordered one through Amazon.

Jekyll & Hyde on this kettle

C Bismuth "CatB; CroquetCreative/HypFoods", Amazon
1 January 2010
  • Summary: It seems absolutely purr-fect. And when it works properly, it is! We've had our first one for about 5 years without ANY major problems. Some comments on the reviews of others: 01> It is a wee bit noisy when it boils, but come on! It is boiling water in a small, confined space.

Warning!

soozie q, Amazon

  • Summary: We had this kettle for quite a while, let say 6 months. We were fairly pleased with it as it did what we expected. Boiled water for tea. Anyhow, the kettle began shutting off before the water came to a boil.

Looks nice, that's it

Sagi Shechter, Amazon
15 June 2009
  • Summary: We got this kettle as a gift for our new house. After six months, the kettle started turning off instantly, making it useless. We looked at the brochure that came with it and thought, ah great, it comes with a 3 year warranty!

simple fix to failure to work

R. Bullock, Amazon
13 May 2009
  • Summary: Like many other failures mine would not turn on. Called Cuisinart; although within guarantee period they needed receipt, Visa bill not sufficient. Simple mechanical fix: remove the bottom cover of the base recepticle Middle contact needed to be bent toward contact point on pot.

Not designed to last

O. Sverloov, Amazon
28 January 2009
  • Summary: Bought one without research in BBB, what a mistake. The first one lasted for about two weeks, the second one lived for 2.5 month. I took it apart just to see what's inside. The spring metal is so cheap, that it acts no better then a foil (that's how the first one died - lost contact I think), the...
