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...

Love and hate

By 

from Fort Irwin

Comments about KitchenAid Black 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.

Love the kettle, but started rusting after 2months

Comments about KitchenAid Black Electric Kettle:

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!

Heats Water Perfectly

Comments about KitchenAid Black Electric Kettle:

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.

Great addition to my kitchen

Comments about KitchenAid Black Electric Kettle:

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.

Comments about KitchenAid Black Electric Kettle:

I bought this product about a month ago to replace my conventional stove-top kettle. This is a wonderful kettle. It's super easy to use, quiet, and really quick to heat up water to the temperature you want it. Also looks great on the kitchen counter. Would highly recommend!

Comments about KitchenAid Black Electric Kettle:

Works well, but at 1500 W it takes a lot of power and despite electrical standards up to code, the kettle cannot be operated at the same time on the same outlet as toaster-it trips the breaker. On its own, it sure works well.

If the electronics would work properly.....

By 

from Brooklyn, NY

Comments about KitchenAid Black Electric Kettle:

This the second kettle of this sort that we've purchased after the frist let us down by firstly not willing always to turn on when placed and finally switched off completely. As we like KichenAid stuff we bought a second one. Within half a year we are again experiencing problems with the electronics as is time by time refuses to switch on, of after using it starts warming up gain (whilst the hold function is not activated). Sometime it helps if we try a couple of time or shake the water within the kettle. Unfortunately it has been a rather disappointing experience this time.
