Electric Kettle is rated 4.4762 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Red hot kettle I bought this kettle in smokin' hot red and couldn't be more pleased. Your overall satisfaction may correlate with your tolerance for beeps-- personally, I like to hear I should get back into the kitchen for my hot water if I've wandered off. For me, the variable temperature is a welcome feature, and matching water temp to different types of tea is easy, and kids can get hot cocoa that's not-too-hot. The best thing: from the very first use, no chemical taste or smell, ever. Love, love, love the design--it has a small presence on the counter, and everyone who walks into my kitchen says some variation of wow, that looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new Kettle!!! Our Breville electric kettle of 9 years finally gave up and we were in the market for a new model. I already have the Kitchenaid mixer in red so when I saw the Red Kitcheniad electric kettle I was excited and especially since it has a stainless steel interior. I was even happier when I found out that it also has temperature controls for different types of beverages I was even more excited because I am a Steeped Tea Consultant and I have different types of teas that require different steeping temperatures so this feature is fantastic. Love my new kettle!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy with the quality 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...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A solid choice...recommended. Was searching for a sturdy electric/electronic kettle that, unlike a few that I've had, would not wear out within a year of daily use. This one is well-built, boils water quickly, and has a variable temperature setting that's really handy if you're a parent of a young child and sometimes just need some hot, but not boiling water. Only one minor complaint...the kettle 'beeps' when it is turned on, when it completes boiling, and when it is mounted on the base. You can't turn this feature off.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK Kettle 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I LOVE this 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 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from solid kettle I replaced a chef's choice kettle that died, and this seems much nicer, with the one caveat that I really liked being able to dial in an exact temp, rather than choose from among presets. I actually assumed from the UI that this was a kettle which would let me do so, but the presets were not a deal breaker. It is powerful, holds a lot of water and heats up quickly. The alarm to let you know that your water is ready is a bit jarring, but it's an alarm, so that comes down to what you need for your environment.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Truck backing up in your kitchen Annoying beeping sound when removing from the base, putting on base and 3 very loud beeps when it is ready. Can i have a quiet breakfast time? toaster same way beeps like a truck. Have anyone thought of making this product attractive to people living in major metropolitan areas, where noise polution is a problem as is and simply boiling water should not be a parking lot at a lumber yard, beep beep beep beep beep beep........
