Cheap plastic construction & questionable safety
on January 10, 2014
I bought this kettle about a year ago. I'm not happy with it.
On the plus side:
- It boils a full litre of water quite fast.
On the downside:
- The construction isn't very solid; the nipple that acts as a hinge for the lid broke off under only gentle use, and now the lid falls into the kettle every time we fill it.
- The auto shut off doesn't work consistently. There is no "OFF" switch. If left plugged in on the cradle, the kettle will continue to come on until the kettle has boiled dry. This is clearly a safety issue, and I have to wonder why this product is allowed on the market.
I won't buy another one of these, EVER. It wasn't cheap, and it lasted less than a year.
