Works very well. I use it to heat water to make single cups of coffee, so needed to be sure the water came to a high enough temp, yet not boiling. I keep it at work where I don\'t have a stove nearby. It\'s pricey, but serves the purpose.

Worked great till it stopped working! It started shocking me when I touched the bottom of the unit. Then it started becoming erratic and would turn off without heating water, or would not turn off when the temperature was reached. Now it's not working at all!

Awesome kettle, and well worth the money! Use the variable temperatures for different teas and cold press, or just boil water for oatmeal or black tea. The hold feature is great for a second cup! Well-made kettle.

This is the best electric kettle I've ever owned. And I've owned quite a few. Fast, quiet, and it keeps on working! Bought one for my daughter who cannot remember to turn the stove off when heating water. She thinks it is the best thing since sliced bread.

Married to an English man, we make a lot of tea. In fact, the only time they are not making tea is when they are drinking tea. Or sleeping. So I've tried a few electric tea kettles in the past. They've broken quickly, had off-tastes, been unsafe, etc. So I stayed with an old fashioned stove top kettle. When that died, I knew I wanted to try for an electric again. I know Breville's products, they are very well made. So I gave it a chance. The other settings on this kettle really do make a difference. I've not had any problems with it like other reviewers have said. No residue in the water (that reviewer possibly had poor water?), someone else said they burnt their knuckles on it. I don't see how this is possible because you can see there is a heat proof area around the handle, so that must have been bad luck on their part. Good solid product. If you drink a lot of teas, go for it! I also suggest watching the Breville video of this product. (As with any electric kettle, do not leave water in it overnight, etc or you may get extra build-ups of minerals. So far this kettle is still whistle clean.)

I'd also recommend: All-Clad, Le Crueset, Clarks, Apple
