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. When that one started leaking after a few years we decided to try for another one on amazon. After a couple of years, that one too is now leaking. As great as this boiler is (and it's been pretty good), we've gone on to a different model.
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. They are always much appreciated. I would not hesitate to recommend the Krups electric kettle. I could not have hoped for better quality and durability. It's definitely the best!
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.
Summary: I drink tea in the am and decaf off & on in the day. My cup with hot water poured from my Krups stays hot much longer than microwaving. I bought one more to give as a gift to a family member who, like myself, doesn't know how she got along without one. The unit is sleek looking & simple to use.
