Works great, no problems, would like to buy another as a gift...
12 December 2013
Summary: Not sure of why all the negative reviews because we've had ours for almost a year and it works great. No leaks, no faulty heating elements. Easy to clean and works very well. We use it for our hot tea and our french press when making coffee.
Summary: I thought this was great the first few months. Now, it no longer shuts off automatically and the lid pops open and our house fills with steam until the smoke alarm goes off. Either invest in a nicer stainless steel one, or get a cheap plastic one that actually works.
Summary: Heats water almost instantly! Discovered the Elite kettle when visiting family. They've used theirs for years. I liked it so much, I ordered one for myself when I got home. If you like to drink lots of tea, this is great!
Summary: I've been cautious and watchful about this kettle, given the negative reviews, but I have owned it and used it regularly for over 2 years, and I've had no problems. It's been a solid appliance for me, and I can't express how much I love it.
Summary: Super surprised to see all these negative reviews! We have our cattle for over 5 years and it still works perfectly with heavy use! We use it at least 3 times, sometimes more, a day. I'm getting one for my mother in law and if I ever need a replacement will definitely get the same one.
Summary: Love it. I have had one for several years, so I bought this one for my mom for Xmas last year. She loves it. I took it out and checked to make sure it wasn't broken before gifting it, but it was fine. YMMV. Heats quickly, easy to pour.
