Summary: Nice brushed silver finish works well with stainless appliances. We drink hot tea and use this thing all day, every day. You won't believe how quickly the water heats. The water lights up blue when it is heating. Hope that's helpful.
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: This is good basic kettle. It works fine. I did not like the ergonomics. Top doesn't open enough to poor filtered water, "boiling" light and water level are on the opposite sides, so I had to always rotate the kettle. The shortcomings though are minor, generally it does what you expect.
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!
