      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...

      Absolutely love. About 30 sec to heat the kettle to boiling and I use daily for tea or my oatmeal, and with my Kitchenaid precision French press. Ironically heats faster than my tap, so I even use for cleaning and sterilizing :). Just love

      Pros

      • Brews Quickly
      • Large Pot

      Cons

      • Handle coating peels and makes kettle look ugly.
      • Only 1 year warranty for expensive kettle.

      Best Uses

      • Everyday

      Comments about KitchenAid Electric Kettle:

      I boil water about 10 times a day. I like the large capacity and quick boiling but durability is very poor. Handle started peeling just as warranty ended and same with rust around the lid. I am tired of products that cost a lot but only last 1 year. I will not buy again. I will return to Cuisinart that manages to make a durable kettle with a 3 year warranty. All of my small and large appliances are Kitchenaid. I have been so disappointed. Both my stove and fridge quit working the first days after they were delivered. They both failed a second time. It was xmas and I had no stove or fridge. The quality is not what it used to be. I expected durability and longevity after spending so much for this specific brand. I was told large appliances like fridge, stove, dishwasher are only expected to last 5 years. Are you kidding me? I am not a disposable person.

      Comments about KitchenAid Electric Kettle:

      I got this as a gift and it is great. It shuts off after boiling but has a feature if you want to maintain the temp. Celsius and Fahrenheit. You can set a certain temperature. Much better than my old kettle.

      I loved it, but the kid stopped opening/working.

      Comments about KitchenAid Electric Kettle:

      It's extremely sturdy; I love the ability to battery-power the unit, the overall components were very strong and pleasing to look at while it worked, and you can manually enter a temperature of your choice. A couple of days after I got it, the lid stopped working and wouldn't open anymore and I pretty much had to rip it open just to get water inside, so I took it back and this model wasn't available so I got a different model which I like less, but the lid opens .

      Comments about KitchenAid Electric Kettle:

      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.
