Summary: I was dubious about the water temperature so checked it with a thermometer. I found the temperature for the 175 preset to be 165. foolishly I thought this to be a defect and took the kettle to Cuisinart "Customer Service" where I was told that it was not a defect but within spec.
This kettle is annoying. It keeps water at a boil after it ...

Summary: This kettle is annoying. It keeps water at a boil after it has already boiled so i often find myself enjoying a cup of tea in my backroom when i hear the kettle in the kitchen re boiling itself.
Summary: The kettle is great, lots of temperature features, heats fast and has a large capacity. After less than a year the buttons text started to wear off. After 2.5 years the kettle has stopped working.
Excellent kettle, only minor issues need to be improved

Summary: Excellent kettle. So far no problems. I did not give it 5 stars because the heat values on the buttons are in Fahrenheit degrees, not Centigrade. Cuisinart, it's time to know that more than 90% of the population of the world uses the Metric system, not the English system.
Summary: Bought this for my daughter's new place as she's a tea lover. She was skeptical at first but now won't brew her teas without it. Apparently, the different temps required for the different types of tea are spot on and she says it really does make a difference in the quality and taste.
Summary: My daughter has this kettle and I was so impressed with it that I had to have one too. It's very easy to fill, you just press the top of the handle to open the lid, and press the lid to close it. It pours well with no dripping.
Summary: It's still working after a few weeks, works as advertised. Some people said the kettle is too loud, I find that the sound alerts are not loud enough. Only bad thing is that the finish on the kettle gets dirty easily. It's a real fingerprint magnet. 3 year warranty is great too.
Summary: After only a month of use, the lid doesnt open anymore... cant even use it ... horrible, especially for the price. when it was working it was fine... The lid opening seemed flimsy from the beggining though.. for 100$.. cuisinart should be ashamed that such a simple thing could not function anymore?!
The design is great, the functions are time saving and superb
