Summary: This kettle is really cute although its a little larger than I was expecting it to be. It does take up some counter space, however it is super fast! I have my water heated, tea made and am out the door in no time. I'm a little leary, my prior electric kettle was also a cuisinart and it shorted out on me in less than 2 years so if I have the same problem with this one you can bet I'm not buying the same brand.
Summary: Loving a good cup of tea is something that I enjoy every day of the week. The water heats up very quickly and pours out into the cups without a spill. I love the design of the kettle and leave it displayed on my counter top. I truly am enjoying my kettle.
Summary: Very well made design. I shopped for an electric kettle for two reasons; (1) did not want a kettle to take up stove space (2) did not want to wait a long time for the water to boil. I bought this for my rental house where safety is a concern. I didn't want my renters to forget they have the stove on. My stove have the flat burner top which takes a long time to heat up.
Summary: I bought this because I love Cuisinart productsand this kettle has such a terrific "retro" look. It makes a great appearance on my black granite countertops. It boils water in a flash and has a large capacity. One caution - because it is metal, it is hot to the touch, so maybe not great around little kids. That's the only reason I did not give it five stars all around. Overall, I am more than pleased with this purchase.
