I seriously considered getting this Kettle. It had all the bells and whistles, was exactly what I needed, etc. Until I learned that the plastic “water level” on the sides of this kettle are made with poly-carbonate – not BPA free. That’s very disheartening. How hard is it to use safer alternatives? I’m not usually one to fuss about BPA, but I do avoid warming/heating plastic with it. So on a kettle that will DAILY reach 212 degrees? Too much risk for me.



I love my Krupp, it’s all glass! I’ve been using it for over 8 months now and it great!

This is a lovely kettle! It’s efficient, simple, and durable. Plus, you can’t beat the price for the quality you get! I particularly enjoy that it has different temperature settings.

For those who say they’re worried about the small amount of BPA plastic on the inside, I believe I read a statement from the company saying that it was in fact BPA free.
The only drawbacks I have for this kettle are that you need to heat at least two cups of water each time, (I’d prefer to only heat the amount I need so I don’t pour too much water in my pot for the amount of tea I’m using), and that I occasionally can’t hear the “ready” alarm go off. A longer cord would be nice as well, though I can see how on a countertop shorter cords are more pleasing to the eye.

Overall, this is a stout and useful kettle!

I adore this kettle! I was looking for something to heat my water for tea in my college dorm room since I wouldn’t have a stove. I got this as a gift from my grandmother and it’s been wonderful. Not only can I heat my water to the perfect temperature to make anything from white tea to oolong to black tea, but my roommates can also boil water for tea bags and all of us can use it for, of course, Ramen. It heats the water incredibly quickly and the hold temperature button can be really helpful if I’m steeping my leaves again. I use it all the time. The cord is very short, but I’m definitely able to overlook that. It’s truly very wonderful and well worth the money.

Because I don’t have a few hundred to drop on a kettle, I had to settle for Breville’s variable temperature model, instead of the magic brewing basket model I wanted (and even then, this had to come to me as a gift). However, it is worth the price: this is a durable, quality kettle that is straightforward to use and simplifies tea making tremendously. It allows you to brew a pot at the perfect temperature for white, green, oolong, french press (loose) tea, and also includes a straightforward boil setting. It also has a “hold temperature” function. No more holding a candy thermometer into the spout of a boiling kettle, trying not to get a steam burn, when you want a cup of oolong! If you drink anything more complicated than bagged tea, I recommend this model.
