    The end to my kettle search, February 3, 2010
    By 

    ***Update 2/25/15****

    Both kettles I have purchased are still going strong with daily use. Couldn’t be happier. I had given 2 away as gifts and as far as I know they are also working well.

    ****original review****

    So after spending a little over a week searching for a suitable kettle I have definitely found the perfect match. I recently received a 6 cup teapot and wanted to keep it in my room along with an electric kettle to replace going into the kitchen and brewing cup after cup of tea.

    My criteria
    - Stainless steel with as little plastic contact as possible.
    - Hidden heating element.
    - Simple functions, the less bells and whistles the less to break
    - Good spout
    - Inexpensively priced.

    What I like about this kettle:
    - It met all my criteria.
    - After brewing and discarding 4 kettle fulls there is no discernible aftertaste.
    - No plastic contact inside, there is a plastic water level but it isn’t in direct contact with the largest body of water in the kettle. Also, the tube for the boiling shut off is made from stainless as well, not plastic which is really nice.
    - Is real metal not just plasticy coated metal imitator I saw on a few of the models.
    - The inside bottom is a stainless plate with the heating element underneath making clean up easy.
    - The outside bottom is plastic and gets warm not burning hot so it can be placed onto a surface.
    - Slides onto the base easily.
    - Auto shutoff works well.

    What worries me: I say worries because it isn’t a problem right now but may be a few months down the line.
    - The lid opens with a button which if it breaks could potentially be a problem, not to fill the kettle as the spout provides adequate room to fill it with, but to clean it.
    - After two brews i took the little filter out. I am using it only to heat water and only with filtered water so to me it seems unnecessary.
    - The switch at the bottom, it doesn’t seem flimsy per say but it does seem to be a little loose, its not a push button so I worry it may give out.

    Duh, or common sense things that people seem to have an issue with:
    - It gets hot. Yes. It’s supposed to. Since the body is stainless steel, which is a good thermal conductor, it will be hot. The handle provides ample room to grab though.
    - It will be heavy if completely full. Yes, water in larger amounts does get heavy. The kettle itself isn’t much heaver than a standard coffee carafe so it should not add much to the overall weight.
    - It can be a bit loud. Its boiling water, the kettle doesn’t have any sound or heat insulation so yes you will be able to hear it. Honestly for me its not really a bother. The kettle sits on its own table next to my desk and I find it kind of soothing. Plus if I am heating water for green tea or white tea I can listen in and shut it off before it comes full boil.
    - Along those lines, if you leave water in it for some time yes the water will cool. It is not a warmer nor is it a thermos that will keep it to the same temperature all day.

    Overall:
    I am very satisfied with this product. I have already recommended it to several people and it has been serving me well. Its not a fancy appliance so it does its job and doesn’t require a tremendous effort on my part which was exactly what I was looking for.

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Hamilton Beach Stainless Steel Red Ensemble Electric Kettle, 10-Cup (Kitchen)
    I went thru three cordless electronic kettles like this one and was not satisfied, but this one is a keeper, I love it, it boils water fast, keeps it hot/warm for a long time, water doesn’t taste funny, no problem with top not opening properly, it’s all around the best that I’ve used, I’ll recommend it to everyone~~~

    Joshua Paine (FL USA) –

    Researched electric kettles no end without finding a good buy with good performance. Picked this one up at Costco, trusting in the return policy.

    I’ve had no thought of returning it: Heats fast, and the hot water has no taste or smell. Base is light but stays put–it’s no effort at all to set it on the base or lift it off.

    Cons:

    * The metal outside gets hot. Fortunately, you have no reason to touch it. The handle is large and comfortable and your knuckles are protected from accidental brushes, so the heat of the metal is not likely to matter.

    * The trigger on the top of the handle opens the lid. A minor annoyance: this usually flings a few droplets of water about. If you use the trigger to open the lid just after boiling, though, those droplets will be very hot. Fortunately, there’s no reason to do this unless you’re starting another kettle-full just after finishing one. When you’re pouring normally, you’ll be pouring through the spout and the top needn’t be open.
