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.

Sad.

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

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.
