Ready to buy a new tea pot

Kimberly M. Eaton, Amazon
15 April 2014
  • Summary: I bought this pot in November 2011. I noticed that the inside bottom of the pot is rusting after all these years so I guess I will replace it. I love this pot for several reasons. First, the flip top is great. Another thing I like is that you can see the water on both sides of the pot.

krups kettle

red wine, Amazon
2 April 2014
  • Summary: The tea kettle itself works fine-it is after all my third Krups I owned-the lid is horrible-it flip-flops and interferes with the filling-also sometimes it falls right inside the kettle and then due to a tight fit it is not easy getting it out-if the water is boiling I have to empty it-get the lid...

  • Summary: We've owned this for a year and 6 months. I had owned the previous model of a Krups kettle for 10 years before it burned out, but this version started falling apart after only one year.

Lid won't stay shut

JanS "JanS", Amazon
2 May 2013
  • Summary: Favorite features: Light makes it easy to see when it is on / how much water is in it, even from a distance. Large view screen makes it easy to see how much water is in it, even from a distance. Classy exterior (brushed finish). Button on handle to open lid makes easy filling.

Dangerous!!!!!

Ulrike Wagner, Amazon
16 February 2013
  • Summary: This kettle is good looking but very dangerous! If the lid flips open (for example while you set the kettle on the electric connector), and it does so quite easily, the switch will not turn off the kettle when the water is boiling. It will continuously boil until all the water is gone.

#2 now broken

Ian H. Butler, Amazon
11 February 2013
  • Summary: I bought one of these 2 years ago, and after 1 year, the cheap plastic latching mechanism for the silly pivoting lid disintegrated. This means that the lid will not stay closed, and the auto-off does not work.

Lasted for 2 years before base started leaking

Aimee E., Amazon
23 December 2012
  • Summary: I was hoping to get a bit more time out of this kettle, but it only lasted for 2 years with use equivalent to 3 times per day. It's now leaking water around the base, as other buyers have also noted. We loved it while it lasted! It's simple and looked nice in our kitchen.

3 Krups kettles broken in 6 years

Shawna14kf, Amazon
31 October 2012
  • Summary: I bought my first Krups in 2006. I was disappointed that it only lasted four years. I then bought this model, the BW3990, in 2010 and while it was still under warranty, almost a year old, the plastic tabs that hold the lid in place broke. They sent me a new one.
