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...

Comments about KitchenAid Black Electric Kettle:

Loved the color and needed to replace the very old kettle that we've had for eons. This not only looks great, but works like a charm and is most efficient.

Nice eye-catching kettle!

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Black Electric Kettle:

This is great looking kettle that works well so far, although I haven't had it long enough to attest to the longevity of it. The beeping is a little loud and unnecessarily frequently but it's not bothersome to me. Overall it seems like a quality kettle that does what it's supposed to do.

Good but has some drawbacks

By

Comments about KitchenAid Black Electric Kettle:

Not recommended if you have small children as the outside of the kettle gets too hot. Also has some annoying beeps that we haven't figured out how to get rid of.

Great kettle

By 

from Philadelphia

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Black Electric Kettle:

Almost perfect. High quality. Quick to bring water to boiling. Quiet. Blue light is a nice touch. Handle is soft, but should be more round instead of being the right angle (like our old kettle) for more more convenient wrist position.

The best kettle I have ever had!

By 

from New York, NY

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Black Electric Kettle:

I've had 4 kettles in this life so far and this is my last acquisition for our new apartment. I simply love it! The design is sleek, it heats the water very quickly and the fact that we can control the temperature is just amazing! I have even bought one for my brother-in-law who just got married and they seem to have liked it too.
