Bought this kettle thinking it would be more efficient than our old one. Very good size and colour. Only problem is that is doesn't have an off switch. It boils for about a minute then shuts off. I would prefer it to boil and shut off quickly.

You just have to use it properly and first read the instructions . It makes a nice cup of tea.

I like the fact that you wouldn't burn your fingers as with a stainless kettle. I don't like that it boils quite a while before shutting off and it doesn't have an off button either.

The Bodum Bistro Kettle is quiet and brings water to a full boil before shutting off automatically.
I love it!

small, light, slow boiler, concerns about staying on Feb. 24 2011
By B. Capossere - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I currently have a T-Fal variable speed tea kettle and so did some direct comparisons between the two. The Bodum lagged in all. It took the T-Fal 2 min 19 sec to boil .5 liters and 3 min 35 seconds to boil a liter. The Bodum took 3 min 17 sec and 5 min 47 sec respectively, a significant difference and one that would certainly be noticeable while waiting. The greater size of the T-Fal is preferable to me as well--the Bodum tops out at the one liter mark, but others may not need a large kettle.

The Bodum is definitely lighter and if someone is concerned about weight, the Bodum wouldn't be a problem at all. It has a relatively small footprint, though not really significantly smaller than my T-Fal.

In general then, with the speed, size, and variabilty--I'd aim people to the T-Fal. But by far the biggest concern I had with the Bodum was its strange propensity to stay on even after boiling. On two occasions the kettle either stayed on or came back on and got hot well after I'd boiled and poured out the water. During my testing I ended up unplugging it every time just to ensure this not happening again. I don't know if this was a singular flaw or something that is a feature of all of them, but it's certainly cause for concern

Works just fine Dec 6 2010
By A. Dimova - Published on Amazon.com

There's nothing to it really, an electric water heater so I don't have to light up the stove, wonder if there's a small clean pot, stand there until it boils or forget and let it boil over, etc.
You fill this up, push the ON button, after it boils it turns off. You lift the pot off the base and pour over teabag or into steeping pot, whatever.
I like it because it's green and modern looking. Functionality is so basic there's nothing to complain about.
Like the previous reviewer, I noticed there was no specific OFF button (just the ON button) But the auto shut off worked fine. If you're worried about auto shutoff not working soon enough, unplug after the water has boiled. I don't want bells and whistles, literally, on my tea-pot. One switch is great and the size is perfect for a family of four at breakfast. It's not like we're trying to boil water for spaghetti!

Looks like someone beat me to a 5 star review, but I'm sure we are both very pleased we purchased the product regardless of the negative review.

Dangerous! AVOID! Feb. 21 2011
By CharlotteC - Published on Amazon.com

This kettle looked so cute and modern that I ignored the reviewers who claimed the fact that there is no "off" button is extremely dangerous. how bad could that really be, right? I bought the red color and thought it looked so perfect in my kitchen. HOWEVER, when my husband woke up to find the kettle STILL BOILING from the night before (though the water had long since evaporated)- he quickly plugged it out of the wall, and it is now on its way back to amazon. not only is this extremely dangerous, but it's also extremely costly! and explains the exorbitant electricity bill we recently received. who knows how many times the kettle stayed on boil for WAY over a minute.

I agree with the reviewer who said this item should be recalled- it's completely unsafe.

Fire hazard Feb. 1 2011
By Arielle - Published on Amazon.com

After reading all the negative reviews, I called Bodum's customer service line before ordering to ask about the absence of an "off" button. The rep assured me that all you have to do is remove the kettle from the base and the heater clicks off. That made sense to me so I ordered.

As soon as I unpacked it, I plugged it in, pressed the "on" button, and the light went on. I immediately removed the kettle from the base and the light went off, so I assumed it was no longer heating. Just in case, I unplugged it,then plugged it back i, thinking it was still off since the light was off.

Half an hour later I came back and happened to touch the outside of the kettle and it was hot. The pot was STILL on in spite of the fact that I had lifted it from its base, unplugged it, and replugged it in with no "on" light on. There was no water in the kettle either; so much for the safety feature that it shuts off automatically as soon as it's empty.

In spite of what the customer service rep told me, the 72-page manual (72 pages to boil water? Granted it's in 11 languages, but slight overkill) clearly states, "If the boiling process is ended by removing the main plug from the electrical outlet, the kettle will immediately switch itself back on when the main plug is reinserted." What kind of a design or safety function is that?

The one and only plus of this product is the beautiful style with its nice lines and bright colors. Sadly it's the only reasonably priced modern kettle I could find. That's not enough to make up for the extreme safety hazard, of course. Needless to say, I'm returning this item immediately. It should be recalled.

Don't bother Nov. 14 2010
By J. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
This water kettle has some serious flaws. First, it really doesn't hold much water. Second, it has no off switch. Third, you can't use it right away after it has heated a pot of water. Fourth, it has to come to a boil, you can't stop it prior to that--unless you unplug it. Did I mention it has no off switch??

I wanted to use hot, not boiling water, so I removed it prior to the boil, emptied the pot of water and put it back on the stand. The next morning when I came into the kitchen, I noticed that the thing was still hot, even though there was nothing in it.

I feel this is an unsafe product, and certainly not worth $40...
