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...

New and improved

Comments about KitchenAid Black Electric Kettle:

The annoying extra beeps when placing the device on its power platform have been eliminated. The Electric Kettle heats water quickly and works as advertised. If it significantly outlasts its predecessor( a previous incarnation of this model which lasted a month beyond the warranty), then I would whole heartedly recommend this. I suspect, this will outlast its predecessor only because my past experience with a variety of Kitchenaid products has been excellent.

Sleek

Comments about KitchenAid Black Electric Kettle:

Had this kettle for just a couple of weeks now. It is very quiet during boiling. I haven't timed the boiling process however seems an acceptable time in preparation for drinks. The handle feels comfortable with a good grip. Easy to fill as lid opens 90o. Looks sleek & stylish c the blue lights.
I'm not sure I'd use the varying temperatures feature. Early days though, so perhaps in the future.

Great Kettle

Comments about KitchenAid Black Electric Kettle:

I love the look of this kettle. It takes no time to boil and the stay hot feature is the reason I chose this one. My only con is too bad the hold temp button can only be pushed at the end of boiling cycle

Beautiful kettle

Comments about KitchenAid Black Electric Kettle:

I was looking for a red kettle for quite a while. I was so happy to come upon the Empire Red kettle. I have the mixer and toaster. The kettle matches perfect. Looks great and has so many features(special temps for special tea. Lights up. A keep warm temp. It indicates specific temps." ). I also love the stainless steel interior and the wide pop up lid. It makes filling the kettle a breeze. I hope Kitchaid continues to make "Empire Red."
