    Poor handle design, Loud operation

    Posted

    Not sure I would repurchase. I have always used a tea kettle on the stove so I thought I would try an electric one. ~ The good: The water heats quickly and stays warm for hours. ~ The bad: 1. The unit doesn't really have a handle. To open the kettle, you have to twist BOTH the round knob on the top and long handle you depress to pour. It is difficult to open and the plastic bends as you twist open the lid. I expect the lid to be broken in the first 90 days as it is very flimsy plastic and I use my kettle many times a day. 2. The unit also operates very loudly. Sounds like you are under a waterfall in your own kitchen. 3. The only notification that the water is ready to use, is the noise stops. There is supposed to be a beep, but I have yet to hear it. 4. The base has the cord wrapped about the bottom. Good idea, but the unit pushes steam out of the lid during the heating process and I don't want the steam to damage the underside of my cabinets. The base doesn't slide very well (which is a good thing), but the cord doesn't uncoil very well either. I have almost tipped it over several times trying to slide it out from under my cabinet. Was hoping to love this item so I could get rid of the kettle on my stove...

    Heats water fast

    I purchased this kettle in order to heat water for my coffee. This kettle works much better than heating water in the microwave. I like the temperature gauge on the front of the kettle. The kettle heats water fast and automatically shuts off when the correct temperature is reach. The only negative commet I have relates to the location of the tab inside the kettle identifying the maximum water level. It is hard to see when filling the kettle. Otherwise, I would recommend this kettle for anyone who needs hot water fast.

    I'm impressed with the performance of this product. Sure, it makes some noise while it's working, but that's to be expected from rapidly heating water in a sealed environment. The temperature display is a nice feature; I don't want my water for hot chocolate or soup to be boiling. This kettle will raise a full kettle of tap water to about 170 degrees in approximately two minutes.

    Heats Water Fast & Stays Warm

    I'm impressed with the performance of the kettle. It seems to heat water very quickly thanks to the 1500W rating. The temperature reference is handy to have also. The kettle is sealed very well and not even hot to the touch on the outside (not dangerously). The water won't come out unless the lever is pushed also so it's a slight safety feature. The kettle does have a quiet beep when it completes the boil cycle.

    This is a great, simple looking kettle. It works well. It is a little loud during the heat up, especially when filled completely with water for boiling. It also takes longer than expected. At $25, I think it's just an okay deal. No frills no thrills here. Works great and cleans easy though.

    Cool Electric Kettle

    This electric kettle was larger than expected (not a criticism, just my first impression) but while there was a marker for the max fill line, I just could not find the minimum fill line. Anyways, it heats up water quickly and seeing the water temp is really cool.

    I bought this CHEFMAN 1.7L Electrical Kettle to add to the existing one in my house. Since we have started using it, everybody has abandoned the old one because it functions better. I love it and I can recommend it to everyone who wants the best.

    I love this product. This works just for what I need it for. This product has fixed my water pan problems by never having to worry about turning it off when I leave. It shuts off automatically and maintains hot quite a while.

    Not as fancy as some other electric kettles, but it definitely does the job. It heats water up super fast, like cold from the tap tp 160 degrees in just over a minute. The temperature gauge is nice too.

    The Chefman - 1.7L Electric Kettle heats quickly and as it does it gives the temperature of the water all the way up to boiling. The temperature is a nice feature. You can pick up the Kettle when it gets to the temperature you like without having the water boil.

    Good looking, boiling fast and perfect for tea. Stainless steel container keeps water hot for over hours. First two kettles of boiling water are not suggested to drink by the instructions. No bad smelling from the third kettle.

    It works as described, and I am very happy that it is cold to touch all the time, and spill proof. So nobody hurt while boiling water or accidentally touching it. And it holds temperature for a long time as well.

    This kettle was in my mind for quite long time but finally it made its entrance to deal of the day for $24.99. Awesome kettle with temperature indicator. Started using this on daily basis.

    The Kettle works really good, but the only problem is the kettle doesn't fix firmly on the base. Pls try to heat the kettle for at least 3 times with water before using it to get rid of the packing odor.

    While there are many choices on the market, this one works perfectly as it should. Water boils in a few minutes, and it holds water hot for some time. My wife switched a regular kettle to this e-kettle with one try.

    It heats very fast, cool product but feature of keeping hot was below my expectation. One of the other things that i didn’t like is it reverts back to Fahrenheit after you unplug the power cord.
