Summary: I used this product daily for two years before the teapot warmer stopped working. When I turned the warmer over it had disconnected from the surface and was burning through the base! Since it was out of warranty I tossed it and ordered a new one that didn't work at all.
Summary: Works great! Water comes to a boil quickly & auto shutoff. So nice not having to listen to a loud whistling noise first thing in the morning. Warmer tray is convenient especially when having company over. Easy to clean. Great investment!
Summary: My wife bought this set for us for christmas and we have enjoyed it since. The only thing is that the plastic on the sieve is very thin and in the process of tapping the sieve on the sink to get out the old tea leaves, pieces of the sieve have broken off.
Summary: We were initially delighted with this purchase and particularly with the concept of keeping our tea warm. However, after only three months of use, the kettle no longer switches off properly and is leaking around the handle.
Summary: I loved this product. For the first year, it was a gem. Then, suddenly, I started finding little white flecks in the water boiled in the kettle. Then more little white flecks. I realized the paint was coming off of the gasket seal at the bottom of the kettle.

Summary: This set is perfect in every way...fast boiling water to pour into carafe and then the kettle turns off, so no overheating. The carafe is large enough for several cups of yummy tea and the tray keeps this heated for as long as you want. Like I said...PERFECT!
Summary: This is one of the best investments I've made! It's so convenient and wonderful to use! Haven't had a problem with it and hope to keep it for a long time to come! No yucky plastic taste due to the glass carafe and the water boils in the kettle in no time!
Summary: I bought this over a year and a half ago, on sale. I was tired of coming home from work exhausted and only wanting a cup of tea to relax, then having to wait an age for the kettle to come up to boiling on the stove. This little kettle set does the trick! It brings the water to a boil very quickly.
