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...

              We like fine tea and the Kitchenaid Electric Kettle allows me to brew the tea at the recommended water temperature. Fine tea can be ruined if brewed at the wrong temperature. We did not realize how good the tea tastes until it was brewed at the correct temperature. The kettle also holds the temperature of one-half hour. Very, very pleased.

                    Returning it tomorrow. Not for the looks, not for how it works. But for the BEEP BEEP BEEP. Mega fail. How could this even slip through everyone working on this product?!
                    You guys should make a study at people's homes and see if another annoying sound is what we want in our life? We already got the phones, laptops, iwatches, ipad etc. and now we want our electric water boiler to go BEEP too. Amazing. It BEEPS when I lift it up, it BEEPS when I push the buttons, it BEEPS when I put it down, it BEEPS four (!) times when it's done. AND again when I put it down for the second time. And it's not even a nice kind of beep, it's a freaking BEEP kind of beep. With that said, GOOD LUCK with your next product.

                                      I love my new electric kettle! I had no problems with my former electric kettle, in fact, I loved it. I had used it for years, unlike my first, which died after about a year. My husband first brought this model to my attention, when we were shopping for a KA food processor. I thought, I don't need a new kettle, mine's great! Then I made the mistake of checking it out online... what really sold me on it was being able to adjust the water temperature-what a genius idea! The hold temp function is wonderful, I can set my kettle on it's base, choose my temp, and press the hold temp button right then, so when it reaches that temp, it will hold it there for 30 minutes. Perfect for waking up in the morning, setting the kettle, and having it ready to go when I get out of the shower! I use this kettle for everything: coffee (I use an aeropress), tea, oatmeal- I love that I can set a lower temp for my kids' drinks, so they can enjoy them right away, unlike before when it had to cool down from boiling. I personally love the beep alert! I was terrible before with starting my kettle, and then forgetting about it- but no longer! It is a bit loud, and I think it is somewhat over-kill that it beeps every time you set it on the base, but I read the reviews before purchasing, so I was prepared for it. The onyx black matches my KA bowl lift stand mixer, and my new food processor, and I must tell you, there is something very attractive of the look of it on my kitchen counter! I am very pleased!

                                                  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...

                                                        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.
