      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. :)

      I purchased this kettle it worked great for two weeks then it started switching to Celsius and would not hold its settings. So I changed the batteries and it fixed the problem for another two weeks, again I changed the batteries. There is a problem with the kettle holding its memory. Other than that issue the kettle heats water fine. I called Kitchen Aid and they are sending out a new one that hopefully works like it should.

      Not happy with the quality

      By 

      from Dublin City, Ireland

      Comments about KitchenAid White Electric Kettle:

      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...

      Great kettle

      By 

      from Herndon, VA, United States

      Comments about KitchenAid White Electric Kettle:

      Design, real LCD-screened thermometer, blue soft lighting inside the water, great handle - the things I really like in this kettle. The important thing for me that the boiling stops immediately after it starts - as soon as you have 212 degrees... And you can choose which exact temperature of water you need. Moreover it will hold the set temperature. Really enjoying it.

        Nice apart from the beeping

        By 

        from Cambridge, UK

        Comments about KitchenAid White Electric Kettle:

        Good pouring action, fairly fast boil time. A nice kettle, except for the beep. It is too loud and it happens much too often. Most of all the user can not choose to turn it off.

        Comments about KitchenAid White Electric Kettle:

        I received this as a prize via Hudson's Bay in Canada. I am thrilled with my new kettle. I appreciate the sleek design that looks good on my counter and the functionality of the variable temperatures. The beep is helpful and in a frequency even my hubby can hear!

        Love this kettle. Adjustable temperature settings, can even hold the LED readout off the base, stylish and works like a charm. I buy KitchenAid products because they work and delight the eye and this does both!

        Electric Kettle with Temp Control - just what I was looking for

        By 

        from Dayton, Ohio, United States

        Comments about KitchenAid White Electric Kettle:

        I am a recent convert to herbal teas and low caffeine teas. I wanted a kettle that would have temperature control for the more delicate teas and one that would hold the temperature in case I got busy and forgot the kettle was one. This kettle checked all my boxes. I got it in red to match my KitchenAid blender and it is lovely sitting on the counter. The only minor nitpick is that the temperature defaults to Celsius. With one click you can change it to Fahrenheit but if you want to keep it permanently at Fahrenheit you have to insert batteries.

        Electric Kettle in red

        By 

        from Los Angeles, CA, United States

        Comments about KitchenAid White Electric Kettle:

        I bought this kettle, in red ( love that) after having my previous kettle, a different brand, break after 9 months. I researched several kettles and was most impressed with this one from Kitchenaid. It brews the water quickly and when done, has a tone to alert you the kettle is done. The tone is not too loud and is not distracting even when I am working. I like the fact is has a filter that is washable. Easy to use, easy to fill. It is more pricey than some of the other brands,but I think it is worth it.

        I LOVE this kettle!

        By 

        from League City, TX, United States

        Comments about KitchenAid White Electric Kettle:

        Being a 60-something British woman, I've used a lot of kettles:this by far is my favourite. I gave this product 4 stars because it's a bit awkward to see how much water is going into the kettle. I have health issues with my hands but this kettle poses no problems with the following: 1. The shape of the handle is comfortable and is set a generous distance from the kettle...no burnt fingers! 2. The weight when full (1.7 litres ) is manageable. 3. The lid opens easily with a push button. I Iike the shape and colour ( I bought a red one.). The spout pours the water cleanly, no dripping. I really like the "Hold Temperature" feature and being able to pre-set the water temperature. Finally, I'm not the only one who loves the blue light display: my grandchildren do as well.
