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
Summary: This is not a safe kettle. It is very temperamental. Will not stop boiling one third of the time, so it has to be watched. I would not buy it again. This is the third item from Cuisinart I have not been happy with. My fault for not returning this item as soon as it showed problem.
