I bought this for myself and it lasted about 5 months (with daily use) before it stopped working. Bad news!
I researched many electric kettles before purchasing this Capresso product at World Market. This kettle has many features going for it. The design is classic, European-inspired. It is made of heat resistant glass. There is no metallic taste to the water, although the heating element inside the glass is covered with stainless steel, and you don't even notice it in the carafe. At 6 cup maximum, it is smaller than some other kettles, but I like the sleek/compact/retro design and the transparent glass is attractive on the countertop. The measuring lines are plainly marked with maximum/minimum for safety, and there is a soft blue light that shows you've switched it "on" that turns off automatically. The handle is soft touch grip, with the on/off switch right on the handle, and even at maximum fill, the kettle is not hard to pour out. The kettle sits snugly in the base, and the base is not oversized for the size of the kettle, also there is plenty of cord. I give this kettle 4 stars because the 1 year warrantee doesn't cover breaking the glass, and the opening is fairly small so you must take care when filling the kettle. But the lid is on a hinge, stays open when you lift it, and is adorable! I recommend this product to anyone who wants a compact, well designed, easy to use electric kettle. I think this is a phenomenal value!
I have become addicted to loose leaf teas lately and wanted to find an electric water kettle to speed up the process. I was hesitant to buy a dedicated appliance just for my tea, but was intrigued by the other reviews that said they use the kettle for other tasks as well. WOW! It has been such a big help in the kitchen. I have used it for tea, to cook noodles, descale/prime my espresso machine, clean the grease traps in the stove hood, and unclog a sink. I have been surprised how often I end up using it and now consider it an integral part of my kitchen.
I love how fast the water gets hot, and the automatic off feature.
Originally received this as a gift and thought I would not use it for much, but it is very much a daily use item in my kitchen. I love to use it to get water boiling for noodles since it gets it hot so quickly. I have had mine for about four years now and love it!
