Hamilton Beach Programmable Kettle from Teaware

Hamilton Beach Programmable Kettle

Take the guesswork out of preparing hot beverages with the electric Hamilton Beach Programmable Kettle. The five pre-set temperature settings are well-suited for a variety of teas, coffees and cocoas. This Stainless Steel Electric Kettle will boil water faster than a microwave and keeps water hot for one hour. It is also safer than a stovetop kettle. With a 1.7 liter capacity, it features a convenient water viewing window, so you can easily see when the Hamilton Beach Electric Kettle needs to be refilled. It comes with a concealed heating element, a cool-touch handle, one-hour automatic shutoff and a broil dry protection system. The Hamilton Beach Programmable Kettle has a brushed stainless steel finish that hides fingerprints, and the programmable features are simple and easy to use.

I have a Russell Hobbs kettle with tea pot and warming tray in my living room. It is plastic but works fine. When I recently set up a second station in my den I tried using a one cup drip coffee maker. It worked but it was slow and I don’t like waiting for the water to cool for green and white tea. I started to buy an inexpensive and very basic but mostly stainless kettle when I spotted this at Walmart. I am having a blast with this thing.

First the negatives:
It is 1.7L. I wanted smaller but those don’t exist in the land of super-size.
The lid is plastic as is the small viewing window. Neither of these bothers me as I only heat 12oz or less at a time so the water never hits the window anyway.
The cord is too short. You have to use a heavy duty extension cord if you aren’t on a kitchen counter with an outlet at the kettle.

Now the positives:
I did not pay $200 or even $100. It was only $40.
It heats very quickly and then holds the water temp for 1 hour unless you stop it.
There are five preset temps – it holds the last setting used in memory.
It easily can be custom set between 150F and 212F. (Can be switched to read C)

Bottom line:
I haven’t had it long so I can’t speak on the durability. It feels solid. It heats the water just like it is supposed to do. I detected no off odor or taste to the water. The price is very reasonable. Honestly, I don’t know what else I would want from a $40 kettle – except contain no plastic and be only 16 ounces. Since that is not going to happen, this will do nicely.

Ohh, you have tea stations in your living room and your den? I have some serious envy! My tea making is confined to my kitchen. You are living the dream!

I have this kettle, but the not programmable kind. I have had it for 2 years and so far works really well. I have always had good luck with Hamilton Beach. (All of the negatives are the same for this one too).

Rosehips – My wife isn’t so sure it isn’t a nightmare. It’s all in the interpretation ;)

Lala – The one you have is what I was going to get before I saw this one. Glad to hear you have had a positive experience.

I ordered this from amazon last week and I’m patiently awaiting it’s arrival. Will definitely post an initial review when I receive it :)

Looking forward to reading your review. I am still very happy with it.

I Had to drop my rating down, after about 9 months my kettle up and died. The little readout still works but it won’t heat up my water anymore. Maybe I used it too much and it exceeded its lifespan…live fast and yard and die young.

I am so bummed about this, since this is pretty much the cheapest variable kettle on the market (with the ability to set and know the temperature) I am probably just going to get another one since it is all I can afford. And of course this happened when I have a million teas to review on my blog, thanks tea kettle…no really, you were awesome…but why did you have to die?

K S

Sorry about the kettle and the timing. Makes me nervous. Mine is about the same age and I also have an abundance of teas to review on the blog with more on the way. I would love to have a tiny Kamjove kettle but they are pricey and require an adapter to run in the US. So yeah, I probably would just buy this one again as well.

I hope yours lives a long and healthy life! One of my friends read my lamentation and bought me a replacement, so that is awesome. I am wondering if the problem with mine (and others I have read about on Amazon) is water getting into the heating element. I know when I am filling mine I just plop it in the sink and fill it up, so this time around I am going to use the old kettle as a pitcher and try to never have the working one leave its base except when pouring.

I really want the gooseneck one from Bonavita, it is so pretty, but ouch is it pricey! The Kamjove kettle is beautiful too, such an elegant design.

I have this kettle and it has been a good friend for about the same time as well. Sorry to hear yours died.

I’ve been trying to find a variable temp kettle that’s both affordable and durable, but it seems like you have to choose one or the other :( I was tempted by the Oster one but then review after review says that it dies after just a few months.

I think I’m probably going to suck it up and invest in the Bonavita. The gooseneck one is very pretty but it just looks fragile to me, so I’ll probably go with the Bonavita with the more typical spout.

Cheri

Anlina, that’s the one I have at work. (I have the Hamilton Beach one at home.) It works quite well. I haven’t had it long enough to speak on longevity, but I have my fingers crossed.

Bought two; one for work, one for home. Needed a better way of guesstimating the water temp for tea brewing.

Negatives: Cord is too short.
Loud, very loud for an intimate office.

Positives: What a deal. Easy set up. One hour of keeping the water at set temp. No burnt leaves in my teapot.

Overall: Great buy, been using for about a month now daily with no problems in functionality. Now if only it had a muffler.
