Rated 2 out of 5 by TeaDrinker2 Looks nice but smells like plastic
I bought this product because it looked attractive. Unlike the reviewer who wrote that the smell was going away, I can still smell the plastic odor after 2 months of using it at least five times each day. It is just as strong as the first time I used it. I am very dissappointed since it was not cheap and I can no longer stand to use it because of the smell that it gives to tea made with the water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bonnie49 Pretty, functional kettle
I love this electric kettle. It is very easy to use, boils fast, and is easy to pour out the boiled water without feeling the heat on your hand. The only downside, if having only one cup of tea at a time, is that you have to boil a minimum of 16 oz. It makes a bit of noise, but that is only natural, and it is quickly gone when the kettle shuts itself off.

Rated 2 out of 5 by tinker3 Disapointing purchase
After only 4 months usage the bright chrome finish is starting to blister and lift from around the lid and around the switch on the handle. The product was cheapened by using plastic instead of metal for these parts.
A nice looking kettle spoiled by unsuitable materials.
Above ratings would have been excellent if the finish had not been faulty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bonniegll plastic bottom attached to glass stays cool and be put on the counter top without burning it .i like the clear kettle to see the water level.
it is a good value for an electric kettle, however i have never spent this much money before just to boil water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cmjinnnj A good pot for quik hot water
Product is reliable for heating water quickly. Cleaning is difficult as it gets older and it is recommended to use a descaler from the lime and scale build up.

This is the best water heater ever. I have had the Hot Shot for years and love it but wanted to update the appliances in my kitchen. This kettle fits in the black and stainless steel decor,and another best feature is the hideaway cord.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BmoreGal82 My mom is a frequent tea drinker (all day long) and this is the second one she has ordered. The first one held up pretty well, but needed to be replaced after a year's worth of heavy use.
