Summary: This is our second Cuisinart. First still going strong after 5 years. Out of the box you will see inside two small pieces of plastic. REMOVE THESE and you have a 100 PERCENT STAINLESS TEA KETTLE. These doodads have zero functionality - so no loss there. Why Cuisinart doesn't remove or replace these themselves and market the kettle for its pure stainless interior I honestly do not know.
Summary: The one drawback about this product is that, when you're distracted or in a rush, it's possible to forget that it's an electric kettle, and by mistake, put it on the stove and turn on the heat. Disaster!! Unfortunately, that's happened, and then it's ruined, because the bottom is plastic, and melts with heat. It really stinks up the house. I've had to replace it twice because of this (1x my husband did, and 1x I did). Sad, but true.
Pros: Attractive, Boils Quickly, Clear Boiling Indicator, Comfortable Grip, Easy to use, Tight Lid
Summary: We love this kettle. It heats the water fast. It looks good and is reliable. We have had one for years. We only needed a new one because the first one was accidentilly put on the stove top and the base was melted. The only thing I don't like is when it comes to a boil, it just shuts off, so you don't know unless you are in the room. (The shut off is a great safety feature, though.) Also, you can't get parts for it.
Summary: Use it everyday for tea and while cooking to heat water quickly! Was without on for a couple of weeks and missed it greatly due to a guest putting in on the stove burner and ruining my prior one!
Pros: Boils Quickly, Clear Boiling Indicator, Great design, stainless steel, Tight Lid
Great hard-working kettle, if you keep bottom dry!

Summary: This kettle was put in our Butler's pantry to prevent morning "cross-traffic" in the kitchen. It's design is sleek and quite attractive so that keeping it on the counter 24/7 is an option. As mentioned by other reviews, the stainless steel interior is the best feature. This electric kettle is used 3-4 times a day in our home.
