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: Amazon Verified Purchase ( What's this? ) I really love this. I had a cuisinart electric tea kettle for about 6 years it is still working but just loved the way this looks. I am so glad I bought it. I have had no problems with it and it just looks really good on my counter. I hope it works as well for as long as my other one did.
Summary: I wanted an attractive electric kettle to use with a French press as I had decided to replace an old coffee maker. I bought this kettle at a specialty shop and paid more BUT it is worth it. It looks lovely in my turn of the century style kitchen & brews water for two cups of tea or my small French press in less than two minutes.

Summary: Amazon Verified Purchase ( What's this? ) Cuisinart KUA-17 1-3/4-Quart Cordless Automatic Electric Kettle This looks great in a traditionally designed kitchen, heats water up rapidly, and is a excellent in every way. The only problem we've had is that the klutzes I live with each put the first two I bought on the stove and turned on the burner, forgetting it is supposed to go on the electric base only.
Summary: Amazon Verified Purchase ( What's this? ) This kettle is a great addition to my kitchen. It has a nice shiny polished appearance and performs well. It automatically shuts off after it begins boiling. I couldn't find this item in any stores in my local area. I am glad I searched around for this item online, instead of settling for something cheaper that was made of plastic.
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.
