I love this Kettle.
Though, I do admit it is my first electric kettle, before it I was heating water and taking its temp on a stove top.
I find this kettle very user friendly and so far temps are accurate.
I use it roughly 3-6 times daily and have had for about 4 months now.
The only con I have found is the actually cleaning of the kettle.
It can not be immersed,so weekly I boil water with white vinegar in it to remove the water deposit that gathers in there (I have harder water) then boil plain water again and dump it before making my tea.
Clean the outside with a damp cloth.
But, I do not think that really puts a damper on how wonderful this kettle is!
Love it!

I’ve been using this for about 8 months now and I do love it. I’ve tested the water temperature for the buttons and I find that they are not 100% accurate, and they are certainly not accurate for the type of tea the buttons specify but I always boil water anyway and then cool it manually. It can be a bit loud, but I just turn the music up. Basically it does it’s job nicely and the preset buttons can be useful if you are aware of the exact temperature they reach.

i find it slightly unnerving that is says you drank this kettle…

Thanks for the cautions. It is easy to forget a kettle needs keeping and maintenance.

This arrived in the mail today and I am using it to brew my tea this evening. It is certainly easy to use. With a press of a button, I can control the brewing temperature of my tea. It heats up very fast and keeps the water heated (if desired) with a “keep warm” setting. So far, so good.

Love this kettle!! I have been using it almost a year now several times a day. The only issue I have with it is that the lettering is wearing off on the handle that shows the temperature for each button.

I love, love, love this kettle! I held out for the longest time, thinking my newfound love of tea was just a fad… but it wasn’t and I finally bit the bullet. It is especially nice if you sip white or green teas as you select the desired temperature. I have nothing bad to say about it.

As for cleaning it, try this tip: Put a tiny bit of liquid dishwasher detergent in the bottom, add a tiny bit of very hot water (1/2 cut) and use a bottle brush to scrub the instead. I also use this method on my metal thermoses and glass teapots. It removes all the tea stains every time (now if only I could use it on my teeth!).

I have had this kettle for 4 months now and it is a must have. Before i bought this I used a stove top kettle because i didn’t see the need to spend more than 20 dollars on a way to heat up water. But i was wrong, far wrong. It used to seem like such a hassle to make tea, however it is now easier than making coffee. The kettle is very easy to use, it heats up very quickly, and keeps the temperature for 30 minutes. You can also press the keep warm button again after 30 minutes and it will do another cycle. Yes it is 100 dollars but if you drink tea as much as I do then I’m 100% confident you will not regret this purchase. Forgot to mention there is a 3 year warranty which replaces any kettle that poops out.( Mine is still working flawless after 3-4 uses daily for 4 months.)

I love this kettle. It is worth the price. Controls are simple. It heats quickly, a full kettle goes from zero to boil in about 5 minutes. Not the quietest thing on the market, but it’s not obnoxious. It beeps when ready, and the keep warm feature will maintain the temperature of your water for 30 minutes.

Settings for:
160/delicate…175/green…185/white…190/oolong…200/french press…boil/black

Highly recommend.

I love this kettle. The temperature settings are taking my tea drinking to a whole new level making sure I’m steeping at the appropriate temperature. And I love the keep warm feature for when I need more than one cup.

I bought this late last year from Canadian Tire and it was worth the money. My old kettle was just ‘turn on and leave’, while this one I can set to the temperature that my tea tins say for the best brew.
Don’t really know how I lived without it.

I received this kettle as an anniversary gift from my boyfriend about a year ago. I probably use it 1-2 times a day and have been doing so for about a year now. I personally love it. It has multiple temperatures it can heat at for different teas, and heats very fast. The only beef I have with it is that it goes from 190 degrees to 200, and I have some teas that require 195 degrees, but no biggie. I would definitely recommend this kettle if anyone is looking for one.
