Summary: A very good electric tea kettle. I have had one of these for about six years. The top lid went bad on me after about 5 years and I purchased another lid and it is still working. I purchased this one as a backup about a year ago, but have not needed to use it yet.
Summary: Wow, I thought the other people who said that this kettle ends up leaking from the handle were being a bit harsh, but nope, mine is leaking now too. After about two months. Hard to believe they still sell this. It really should be recalled.
Summary: This is an excellent and fast boiler that has some minor issues. We are on to our 3rd boiler in less than 5 years. The first one had to be replaced due to a faulty on-off switch. This was replaced by the store we bought it in.
Second time around with this product - same problem. It leaks!

Summary: My first kettle lasted a couple of years. The new one lasted a few months. Same problem, it leaks just below the handle and becomes a hazard since water gets all into the electrical connection.
Summary: Late in 2012, I purchased this Krups Electric Kettle. In April 2013, the on-off switch stopped working. I emailed Krups Customer Service; they responded with the following: "We regret to learn you have encountered any difficulty with your Krups Electric Kettle.
Summary: Bought my first Krups electric kettle 11 years ago and it was used daily. Recently, while cleaning it, I dropped the top and it cracked. The kettle still worked until the new one arrived. It's perfect for my needs. Over the years, I have given several of them as gifts.
Summary: Such a reliable little gem of a kettle. Use it daily, several times each day. Love the see through panel/measuring points on the side of the kettle. Very easy to know how much water is in the kettle. Krups is durable, very cost-effective and meets all our needs.
