Summary: I've been using it 2-3 times a day over the past 3 days and have been quite happy with it. It boils really quickly. No plastic taste/smell in the water boiled (I threw away the first 2 boils). Works as stated. No complaints.
Summary: I first purchased this tea kettle at my Wegmans, and have been using it for a few years. My friend has been looking to purchase one and had been unsuccessful at our local stores. I found it on amazon.com with free shipping and sent it to my friend as an easter gift. We both love it. The water heats up really fast, it has no lingering odors or smells fromit.
Summary: My 92 year old mother-in-law lives independently (in a retirement community) but has some difficulty with day to day tasks. I was concerned that heating water on the stove was becoming too difficult and potentially dangerous for her. I purchased this kettle for her and she loves it. Auto shut-off insures that she'll never let the kettle boil dry, The cool base insures that she will not burn herself on the stove.
Summary: This kettle looks pretty good, but I was expecting wireless kettle. Amazon. com didn't give the whole information (or it wasn't well readable) and I received kettle which is not matching our needs. It isn't good for kitchen needs. my wife was complaining that she had to unplug it every time when needed to add some water into pan on the stove. It isn't really fast too. I am not excluding that the kettle maybe will serve you forever, but it isn't something I desire to use.
Summary: The lid is a bit difficult to open and shut, but what in life isn't a bit difficult? Get over it. The thing heats very quickly, I think 2-3 minutes for the minimum setting which is one serving. Pours easily, is balanced nicely for a small hand. The plug doesn't come out but then, it's easy to clean with a damp cloth inside and out. It's just water. I love the shut off. I don't have to worry about it boiling and boiling. Energy saving.
