    So far so good...

    2018-11-14. So I've only been using this a couple of months now and so far so good. No issues with functionality. Cuisinart has always been a leader in small home appliances and this kettle is no exception. The model I'm reviewing is the CPK-17. This unit is fairly large at 1.7L, and I've never boiled water at maximum capacity. The kettle has a large viewing area to see water levels and is backlit with a blue light. I'm not sure if this is a UV light to kill bacteria, but if it is, that a bonus! Of the 6 presets. 5 of them are dedicated to teas, so if you're a tea lover this little baby will have you covered most of the time. I do indulge in Green Tea from time to time, and I think the perfect brewing temperature for Green Tea is 172F. Unfortunately for me, they have Green Tea set at 170F. But other than that the unit is great, it brings 1L of water to a boil within minutes. The controls are smartly placed on the handle and the kettle has there is a nice keep warm feature (button activated) which is designed to keep the water hot after it reaches a boil for 30 minutes. This is perfect for me as I brew my coffee one cup at a time. Other than that, they're in line with the competition; the handle remains cool to the touch at all times, but the kettle itself does get hot as all kettles do; there is an auto shut off to prevent water from over-boiling, and a sleep mode found in many other kettles in today's market. This is my 3rd kettle in about 5 years. My previous kettles were great too, but they didn't seem to withstand the test of time. I ended up purchasing this kettle for two main reasons: 1. The price has finally come down over the years. When this kettle first came out, it was going for a hundred bucks. Now, you can find it for about 60% of that price. 2. The reviews had indicated that the quality was good; sturdy construction with quality parts. Other criteria of mine this kettle met include: The opening is large enough for my hand to fit it in (to clean it) - The lid can be removed! Lightweight for easier portability. Removable and washable scale filter. While the unit is on the pricier side (the going rate at time of this review is still about twice what I'm used to paying for an electric kettle), I decided to take a chance on it in hopes that the quality will make up for it. Here's to your next cup of brew, cheers.

    Awesome kettle, albeit expensive.

    I'm British, therefore, TEA! I drink loads of the stuff, and over the course of time, I burn through kettles like crazy. I always buy nice 'looking' ones, but never really thought about the gadget side of what a kettle could do for me. With it's touch button controls for choosing different heat points for different types of tea, or a plain 'boil' set point, along with LED lighting and an audible 'Start' and 'Stop' tone, this is a fancy kettle. Coupled with a 'keep warm' function that keeps your water at your desired temperature for 30 mins, and a dry boil protection, this kettle has it all. It's a nice, sturdy, stainless steel kettle, very ergonomic and not very heavy considering the technology inside. It also has a 360 degree swivel base and an anti tangle cord. My only criticism of the kettle would be that the opening at the top to put the water in is a little small, because the hinge is quite large and the holder for the washable filter is also on the opposite side. I typically don't pour water into the spout, to prevent water spots on the kettle surface. Talking of the surface, it does keep clean very nicely, especially if you wipe it while hot. All in all a very nice kettle, and I'd have to recommend it! No problems so far.

    Ok you might think a kettle is a kettle is a kettle but not so. This Thing is amazing. Tempature settings for different teas and beverages. It really does make all the difference. I use this with my Areo Press coffee maker it has enabled me to make consistent and perfect cups of coffee every time. Coffee has a nice creamy head that is not possible with guessing the temp of the water. I used to have to use my nespresso machine at 4$ a pod combo to get these results. Now I can use fresh ground coffe at a fraction of the cost. Very much with it if you love coffe and teas.

    Great working, smart looking teapot

    I've had this electric teapot for almost 2 months and I'm very happy with it. I use it 2 or 3 times a day and it heats the water very quickly. It has multiple heat settings and is very easy to use. It looks nice and clean on the counter. I recently had house guests and they loved it so much, they are going to get one too. It's a bit costly for a teapot but after returning 2 other brands I had purchased because of having loose handles or damage to them right out of the box, it's worth having a quality made product. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 for durability is I haven't had it that long yet, so I'm not sure.

    Controlled heating in a smart looking package

    I like the looks of it. The buttons are easy to use. The light and see through fill level is nice. You have to remember to hit start after you select a temperature. It would be nice if you didn't have to hit start, but it is not a big deal once you get in the habit. My lid button works fine. No complaints so far. I have only used it for about a month. I use it to heat water for Aeropress coffee and I like the ability to choose the 175 or 185 degree setting instead of just boiling like I had with my old kettle.

    Cuisinart - PerfecTemp Cordless Electric Kettle

    I purchased this as a replacement for a former brand. The former brand boiled only and did not have settings for different temperatures. The Cuisinart brand has temperature settings. I like having the temperature options. It also has a warmer setting that I enjoy, the previous brand did not have. One advantage of the old brand was the water boiled much faster, but no options for temperate options and no warmer. There are pros and cons to both, but I prefer my new improved Cuisinart kettle.

    This is the only appliance (large or small) that I use on a daily basis. I had a Cuisinart electric kettle for 15 years and it served me very well. It had one on/off button and that was just fine for me. After all those years the looks deteriorated and that is why I decided to replace it. I wish I could have found the same model, but no such luck. This seemed to be the replacement for it. I do not use all of its settings and personally, I wish there were fewer buttons but that is not a reason to downgrade this rating.

    I've heard so many friends and family rave about this so when it went on sale, I immediately purchased it. Let me tell you - it was the best decision of my life. I can now make tea in a QUARTER of the time it took me to beforehand. I love that it has presets for different types of tea which is SO helpful in brewing to optimal conditions. It also has a Keep Warm feature which has proven to be amazing.

    Indispensable for Tea Lovers

    For anyone who drinks tea (unless it is exclusively black) or makes coffee outside an all-in-one, department store drip-brewer, this is absolutely indispensable. Though most recipes have been built to use only room-temp or boiling water (since those are the only temperatures to easily reach with consistency), more cutting-edge cooking as well as coffee/tea prep requires more finesse. Unless you're willing to watch the proverbial pot boil with a thermometer in hand, this is the only way to heat water on such occasions.

    Best Kettle Ever !!

    This has been a great investment. With its multiple temperature settings, the kettle offers great versatility in choice of water temperatures of a tea lover. The water heats up very quickly; far quicker than in the microwave or on the stove top. And the temperature maintaining feature is helpful when one goes for refill on the tea or coffee!!! The low water alarm and shut-off will ensure a long useful life for the kettle.

    The Cuisinart PerfecTemp Cordless Electric Kettle works very well for me as I brew different types of tea as well as french press coffee. The kettle provides me with just right water temperature. The biggest advantage for me is the lowest setting, which makes preparation of baby food a breeze. The stainless steel look goes well with others stainless steel appliances. I use my kettle few times a day for few months now and absolutely love it.

    Excellent Heated Kettle

    Works very well, heats water quickly. However the insulation does not keep the outside cool, it can get hot so you have to be careful holding it. The controls are mostly intuitive - remember to hit the start button after selecting the heat range. The water heats very quickly and it uses less electricity than a full oven. Great for warming water for tea or cooking. It is also nice to have such precise control of the heat.

    Gave this as a gift to my daughter, she loves it, especially the ability to keep the water hot for 30 minutes and the auto shutoff for those busy mornings. Only problem was after 3 weeks the lid became stuck and would not open. Returned it to Best Buy with no problem (thanks). Unfortunately they did not have any in stock and since my daughter wanted another right away I had to go to a competitor, used a credit card that offers extended warranty just in case.

    I initially thought this was expensive for a kettle but it's definitely worth the price. I caught it on sale and been very happy with it! It works fast, isn't too loud, and you can choose the temperature depending on what you want to brew! It's also made made very well and sturdy and I've owned it for 6 months and it's going strong with no issues what so ever.

    I love the design of the product.. I give the manufacturer credit for coming up with innovative idea... but the only issue I discovered after is that... inside the kettle has started to rust... which is not a good thing.

    I had this kettle for over a month now. Have been using Braun for a long time and wanted to try something different this time. It works great and with different temperature settings, you can't ask for more. I haven't found anything like this on the market when I was doing my due diligence. Beautiful shape and easy handling. I would definitely recommend this kettle to anyone. So far so good. I really like it.

    I have been wanting to replace our old plastic electric kettle for a while. My husband spotted this when we were Christmas shopping. I love i! It has so many settings for different kinds of teas. It is sturdy and you can choose to keep the water warm if you are making several cups or have company. It is the best kettle I have ever had.

    I love the design, the look, the quality, and different temperature setting! Very quick to heat up desired temperature! Except when press Open, the temperature buttons are under thumb of palm. The temp setting is kind of easy to be messed up. I just used it for about a month. So far so good. Don't know durability yet.

    I have always used a tea kettle to prepare my tea in the morning. I was redoing my kitchen and thought it would be nice to have a spot to prepare coffee and tea and was so happy with this electric tea kettle. It is quick to heat up and it automatically shuts off. I no longer worry if I left the kettle on. It looks great alongside the coffee maker. I love it!

    Great Kettle. Fast and efficient. I love the temperature settings for the different types of teas and even for coffee. These different settings ensure that every cup of tea I drink whether it is black or white is steeped at just the correct temperature to provide the best flavor possible. Would give it 5 stars if the exterior did not get so hot.
