Double Walled Cool Touch Kettle
With its concealed heating element, this electric kettle quickly brings up to 64 ounces of water to a rolling boil. Simply fill the kettle at the sink, return it to its 360-degree power base, and flip the switch to "on". In a matter of minutes, hot water will be ready to use for anything from tea, hot cocoa, or instant coffee to instant soup, baby formula, or noodles. After the water reaches a full boil, the kettle turns off automatically for peace of mind--no need to worry about it boiling dry. The unit also provides a comfortable easy-grip handle, a lid that locks for safety and opens with a thumb-activated button, a drip-free pouring spout, and a cordless design for graceful serving. Other highlights include an on/off indicator light, double-wall stainless-steel housing that stays cool to the touch, a beautiful brushed finish, and a mineral-deposit filter for pure, great-tasting water. Great for in a kitchen, office, or dorm room, the electric kettle measures 8-1/2 by 6 by 10 inches and carries a one-year limited warranty.See all Product Description

On the other hand, double wall makes the body relatively huge compared with the maximum amount of water it can boil. It's a bid noisy when the water is about to boil.
1) no boiling water touches whatever small amount of plastic there is on this kettle. If you have reverse osmosis water filtering, you could remove the filter altogether. I assume the filter is useful if you allow the lime/calcium build up occur ( but I would rather clean the kettle regularly than leave the bits to build up anyway. Also no silicon in this kettle either.
2) looks nice
1) shortest electrical cord I have ever seen. If you worry about steam touching anything above this kettle..you better have an extension cord...because this is really short.
2) maybe I have to get used to it, but I kinda miss the 1.7 Liter capacity of all the other kettles on the market
there are other plus and minuses but overall for me these are the main points.
There is a very very short list of pure stainless steel kettles out there...this one and the Precise Heat ( but you can't buy the PreciseHeatTM here in Canada and not feel robbed/shocked on how expensive it is compared to buying on Amazon USA.) so I opted for this one.
If you can live with boiling less water....you can feel good about this purchase.
I agree with most other reviewers about the size being on the large side even though the volume is on the low side. However, I did not have any issues with the spout dripping as one reviewer mentioned. It looks like it is designed to prevent dripping so perhaps there has been an update in design? I also didn't find it a problem pouring as long as you keep the flow at a reasonable rate ie. keep the water in the little "grove" of the spout.
The removable flip lid is pretty cool and which gives easy access for cleaning. Time will tell if the hinge mechanism will last.
There was a comment about the plastic bar on the back of the kettle getting hot. I did not find this to be the case for me. It was warm but definitely not uncomfortably so.
One disappointment is that the "cool touch" exterior still gets quite warm. Definitely not painfully hot like my last steel kettle that was not double walled but still not "cool" by any stretch. Probably more due to my high expectation of the "cool touch" term than anything else.
I've had this kettle for about 3 years now and it's still going strong. Overfilled it a couple of times and water leaked through an opening inside and through the bottom of the kettle when it boiled. It didn't damage the kettle though.
The mesh filter on the lid ripped away within the first year but I don't think it was really doing much anyway.
Use vinegar to dissolve the mineral deposits once in a while at the bottom of the kettle is all the maintenance you need.

Great kettle to avoid plastic . All metal where water gets hot. Removing lid will remove any plastic.Published 6 months ago by Naushad Bhatti
Except for kettle's cap it's a well-designed kettle. Hot water doesn't come in contact with plastics or silicone.Published 7 months ago by Bluelight
works well and heats up quickly (3 min maybe?) It also insulates the water decently. The only (and very annoying) con is that the cord is super short! Read morePublished 7 months ago by BluRain
