    I really have enjoyed this kettle but.......... Review by

    My husband brought this last summer because we make pour over coffee in mornings. It looked nice and worked great. Today i noticed the base had a chip and wire is exposed. I'm afraid to use it.

    Looks and works great! Review by

    My last expensive tea kettle was electrocuted by the great invasion of the sugar'water ants. The new one I bought is superior in craftsmanship and it would better be able to withstand another attack of the midget ants that are making life a Living Hell here in our beautiful city. It has a high stand in case water gets on the counter somehoa It is bright and cheerful and easy to use...perfect in every way I can see after six weeks of service....

    Not great product for money spent Review by

    I usually drink 3 or more cups tea a day, so i bought this tea kettle thinking it would be great. After less than 6 months its already rusted inside and the bottom has stopper that have fallen off bottom where goes on to warming base and water no longer gets hot but lukewarm. Now i spent all this money and have look for new one already. Not impressed, very dissatisfied with product.

    Could be Fabulous with one tweak Review by

    Kettle makers still persist in using plastic parts internally making for a plastic taste in and potentially harmful tea drinking. When trying to purchase online, I specifically called and asked if there was plastic inside and was assured that since not part of description, there was none. Wrong. Still on the hunt.

    Love my kettle! Review by

    This is a great little kettle. It heats up a cup of water for my tea in less time than the microwave can do it and a lot faster than a traditional stove top kettle. It's very pretty too. Another thing I like is that it clicks itself off. I've burned a few traditional kettles dry and ruined them through the years from running outside to check on child because I couldn't hear the whistle. Won't happen with this kettle. Some people have made a big deal about the plastic inside. First all, at least two cups of water are below the plastic, and even if not, Kitchen Aid said that it is BPA free. I think we have far more to worry with the toxicity in our environment everyday, everywhere, than the chance of a tiny amount from a little plastic while heating up a cup of water once or twice a day! Seriously! The kettle arrived sooner than expected, was packaged very well, and the kettle was in perfect shape. I am very pleased with every part of my order.

    Perfect cup of tea Review by

    Nice tea Kettle Review by

    I've had this tea kettle for about 3 weeks. It heats up quickly and is a great size for my counter top. The only concern I have is an odor that I can't seem to get rid of. I am concerned about this and may return it if I can't get rid of the odor. I see at least 1-2 other people have the same complaint.

    Classy and efficient Review by

    Amazing kettle that works great and looks fabulous in the kitchen! Heats up fast and the smaller design is wonderful for a smaller kitchen. Very happy with my new kettle! :)

    Love this product... Review by

    After burning my stove top kettle twice, I thought it was time to buy an auto-off electric kettle. As a single person, I was looking for something that: (a) met my high standard of expected service, and (b) would suit my esthetic/artistic senses. After weeks of searching - yes, I know it sounds silly to search for weeks for an electric kettle, BUT - I finally found the KitchenAid bright red, stainless, electric, auto-shut-off, 1.25 litre perfect-for-one-person kettle! First - it works great! Second - it looks great!

    Great Features! Review by

    I have been very happy with my purchase. The quick boil and cordless function suits my needs. Having a built in screen to ensure that I never get anything in my water that I don't want is one of the best features and cleaning the screen is easy and readily accessible. I was so happy with my new kettle that I gave my old one away.

    great kettle untill it rusted Review by

    My Fiery Red Kettie Review by

    Bought this last year upon our relocation to the US. It still doing her amazing job boiling water for my cup of tea or coffee. I used it for countless times during the year and it did got some water marks on the inside part but easily came off by boiling chopped off lemon. I love it so much. But hey.. why won't I? It surely looks good on my kitchen.

    Beautiful functional kettle Review by

    I purchased this kettle because of the beautiful red color, and the electric base. The kettle comes to a boil very quickly, and I especially like the marker inside the kettle which indicates a maximum water level. It looks beautiful on my kitchen counter and works beautifully.

    Love this teapot Review by

    I bought this over a month ago and am so happy! No more scrubbing the bottom and side of a stovetop teapot I put to boil on a burner that was too big for the pot. No more using the end of my sleeve to pick up a hot handle to pour a cup of tea. And hello to a teapot that boils water fast and looks as good as the day I took it out of the box.

    Nice Kettle Review by

    Easy to use, plug and go. I like it mainly because of the design and the color choices. It does heat water quickly, and takes up limited counter space.

    I'm happy with this purchase Review by

    I bought this for my mom as a gift for Mother's Day. So far it's working great. It boils water very fast and looks cute on the kitchen counter (I got the red one). It's easy to operate with a simple push of the button. My mom likes it a lot. My only complaint is the electrical cord is too short. A few inches longer would be perfect. If you look for a simple electric kettle without all the unnecessary extra features, that's the one to go to.

    Very pretty... does it brew tea? Review by

    I have just bought this electric kettle (in brushed stainless steel) and I confess I chose it for the design. I love it. Works well too, so far. Since it's so cute... I was wondering whether I could use it for actually steeping loose tea, after the water boils, and serve too. Is this a no-no? Is this going to affect the kettle or make the cleaning difficult? I would appreciate any advice in this regard, thanks!

    Short Lifespan Review by

    I love the teapot....looks nice, water gets hot very quickly but the one I originally purchased lasted less than a year. kitchen aid did replace it but it took twice as long as they stated and I was without the kettle for months

    Is plastic inside the pot BPA free or not? Review by

    I just purchased the KEK1222 electric kettle. I haven't even tried it yet. Love the style and that it is mostly stainless steel. I'm still searching on line to find the answer many have asked re: whether the plastic filter frame and housing inside the pot is BPA free or not? Why can't someone from KitchenAid just be up front and directly answer the question? This a concern that numerous people have brought up in their reviews. If it's not BPA free is KitchenAid addressing this? Otherwise, it's a great little kettle.

    Used to love it for all of 2 months Review by

    I bought this 2 months ago and loved it up until today. Thought it was kinda spendy for an electric tea kettle, but my last tea kettle had findly given out after 5 years of faithful daily service. I like the way it looked, so bought it. And it has worked great until today. It has just stopped heating up. It gets luke warm, but not hot like it should.

    BPA free or not? Review by

    Odor Review by

    The water boils quickly, however the kettle gives it an unpleasant odor which I have not been able to eradicate. I have used only only about a dozen of times, and washed it innumerably. The odor remains unchaned.

    Almost Perfect Review by

    Almost perfect only because the handle is fixed. If it were flexible it would be easier and cleaner to remove and replace the lid. Otherwise it is a great addition to our kitchen which we use numerous times daily. An excellent product. We have purchased another one as a gift for a very close friend.

    Kitchen Aid Electric Kettle Review by

    I love this light weight kettle, and the lid is so easy to remove, this is a plus with my arthritic hands. Very pretty to look at on our counter.I do wish the cord was a little longer, but since you unplug it right away it is no problem for me.

    Great product...Well designed... Review by

    Very solidly built and so far worth the price. I originally decided to save money and but a lesser priced product from another mfg. and it broke after a year, so this time I decided to spend a little more and I am happy. I do wish the cord were 6 longer.

    Fast heat up! Review by

    This was purchased to replace a stove top kettle that my husband accidentally forgot about; hence the kettle burned and damaged the stove. After that, I decided that something with an auto shut off was in order. This kettle is stylish, functional, heats up fast and is safe when you have multi-tasking spouses who forget what they are doing! The auto shut off is enough peace of mind to make the purchase price worth every penny. Love it!

    very short electrical cord Review by

    Just received my electric kettle and have not used it yet, but the electrical cord is about 12 inches. Cannot use from a table because it does not reach either a wall plug nor a power strip. I cannot understand why the cord is so short. I have had another brand with a cord that is long enough. Very disappointed that I will have to use it on the floor in order to plug it in.
