      The old adage, "you get what you pay for" holds true on many things such as cars, cameras, and certainly holds true for tea kettles. This is one quality tea kettle, and I feel it will last for a good 10 years or more! About 10 years ago I bought a braun which lasted me about 7 1/2 years, but eventually the stainless bottom plate of the interior became almost rusted where the heating element was below. (basically a C shaped rusty ring on the inside bottom) Although the braun continued to work great- the thought of that rust-ish material possibly being present in my tea made me buy a new kettle. Money was tight when I got the replacement, (I can't remember the name right now) paid 30 bucks, and although it worked, I felt it was cheaply made and knew it would not last. Six months later, that same rusty ring on the bottom appeared, which had taken many years to appear on the braun. I thought it was time to go back to a quality kettle, and choose this kitchenaid for the great style and reputation kitchenaid has. Although it's fairly expensive for an electric tea kettle, I feel the money is well spent. This kettle is solid, well made, and works well. As someone had posted, it's not as fast as kettles in England, but then again we don't have 220 power. I lived there for a bit myself, and loved the quickness of how fast water would come to a boil, but that's not going to happen here in the states because of the 120 current. Even with our lesser power here- this kettle will bring water to boil in a minute, (assuming you're making enough for a good sized mug) even when the starting temp of the water is about 40 degress F. I pour water from my brita water jug which is kept in the fridge, and that cold water still gets to a boil in about 1 minute. If you used room temp tap, I'm sure it would be more like 40 seconds or something. I'm really happy with this kettle and I know it's going to last many years. (I've had it for about 2 months now) Definitely worth the 100 bucks. :)

      The kettle itself is fantastic. Our problem is that we discovered a little crack on the window. It didn't fall or anything. We brought it back and we got a replacement. In less than a month the exact same thing happened. I am going to bring it back tomorrow. I will purchase different brand. Sorry guys...

      Good kettle, overall. Not too noisy, doesn't rumble or shake like some of the cheaper ones. The temperature settings are a little weird, because there is both Celsius and Fahrenheit, so instead of round numbers like 200, 175, you get some odd ones like 194.

      I purchased this appliance to heat up the water faster for our tea. Love it it's so fast then it also keeps the temperature at the desired heat you want it so it's ready for your next cup. It also can be used a carafe

      I've been wanting an electric kettle for years and finally chose the KitchenAid. It boils water quickly and looks nice. My only complaint is that it defaults to Celsius and you have to manually change it every time.

      It quickly heats up water! I wish it had a program to start automatically. I did try to hear milk in it but it scorched to the heater and had to be scrubbed off. I still can't get it to switch to Fahrenheit instead of Celsius. I like the blue lights inside.

      Comments about KitchenAid Electric Kettle:

      This is my very first review ever. I really like all of my Kitchen Aid helpers, even this one. Unfortunately the rubber handle has it's flaws. It will come off and when contacted Kitchen Aid the response was it was just outside of the warranty. Of course it still works but it looks very very ugly with partial rubber on the handle.
      Wish there was something that could be done.

      I bought my kettle in November and we use it a lot! I love everything about it, except that it started rusting a little at the lid after 2 months. I'm guessing this isn't supposed to happen. I submitted a customer service request so hopefully I'll hear some helpful news!

      This electric kettle does exactly what it is meant to do; heat water quickly and accurately. It is designed to record at C or F, and the control panel temperature always starts at C. It is easy to change, but would prefer F.

      Love the setting to control the heated water temperature as my black tea, green tea, hot cocoa, and even my oatmeal requires different temperature for optimum tasting results. Love that it is not too heavy when lifting it with water.
