    • Great Kettle
      by

      Got this 2 years ago for our wedding. Surprised to see so many bad reviews. I'll try to negate some concerns: 1. make sure it clicks when closing the lid else it'll boil dry, (standard with all kettles) 2. Pretty sure its made of metal that doesn't rust. Two years no issues and we boil water 3 times a day. 3. when the kettle is off and cool, pour a tiny amount of vinegar in and leave for 1-5 minutes to dissolve any stains on the plate. 4. its never leaked. 5. Lots of compliments on our kettle.


    • After one month got rusted!!!

      this is the email I sent to customer service: To Whom It May Concern: I am writing regarding the Electronic Glass Kettel I purchased through Best Buy on Sep 2018. I choose Glass kettle because I believe it should be more healthy than the metal one. However, after 45 days the metal part of my kettle got rusted! (as you can see in attached pictures). I went to Best Buy to address this issue, but they advise me to contact you since their refund policy is 30 days after purchase. I will appreciate it if you kindly let me know what the procedure to address this issue is. Attached is my proof of purchase. I trust that you will respond to this matter promptly. Thank you for your time. and this is their reply!!! It is normal for stainless steel heating elements to discolor. This does not affect the performance of the kettle. Do not use abrasive scouring pads or cleaners since this may damage the stainless steel surface. Unfortunately, there is no way to prevent this from happening. I don't use it anymore it is not healthy at all, and I never buy anything with this brand.

    • Hamilton Beach glass kettle

      It takes a long time to boil. The blue light feature is nice though. I have not experienced it not shutting off yet, but will keep an eye on it.


    • Occasionally doesn't switch off!!

      Had it two weeks, twice out of about 50 boils it has not shut off and boiled dry. Water level above the minimum. Second time I heard it and watched in astonishment, waiting as it just kept boiling the water and not shutting off.

      I bought this kettle during the Black Friday sale; I took a couple weeks to use it, and the second day i used it, the kettle would not shut off. it was half full when i started it and it boiled for about half an hour without shutting off. I took it off the base when the water was almost dried up, and returned it immedeately

    • Seems a bit flimsy, but works
      by

      from Richmond, BC on January 15, 2018

      I bought this one because I wanted glass instead of plastic or stainless steel, and I like the look of the blue lights (although the product pictures are all fake, the light doesn't actually look anything like that). The bottom of the kettle is stainless steel, and it has a soft plastic ring between it and the glass portion which is exposed to the water in the kettle, so there is a little plastic. I washed and boiled mine twice before using it, and there was still a strong plastic taste, either from the ring or from a persistent coating. Overall construction seems flimsy, but it works. One other essential feature for me: the manual switch latches On even without power, which means I can use it with a remote control switch as part of my home automation to boil the kettle in the morning when I get up.


    • Good looking but stains on the bottom plate
      by

      from Scarborough, ON on September 28, 2017

      Found flaws in 2 kettles (one purchased, the other returned/replaced and later refunded). All two had metal stains on bottom plate inside kettle. Having very hard water in my area, the exposed areas intensified upon use and some spots developed rust after 2 weeks. Loved the look and quick time to boil water


    • Excellent

      from Toronto, ON on September 21, 2017

      I fill up the water to max levels of 1.7 litres and water started to boil b4 5 minutes exceeded my expectations excellent. 5 stars out of 5 for some reason the ratings on the reviews didn't work.
