from tri-state area !!!

This kettle is okay. Doesn't boil as quickly as the Krups kettle (that is now discontinued) that we had several of during the past decade. This kettle also has a plastic smell, which doesn't affect the taste, but wonder if that has to do with it being BPA free. Overall, it does the job but I do miss the Krups!

Very useful. I bought it for a tea party I was hosting. Boils quickly, has about a 7 cup capacity. No one was ever waiting for water. The only problem I have with it is that is smells of plastic or chemicals even after I washed many times and boiled batches of water, as the directions said. I would not use it on a daily basis because of this. I would also opt for the stainless steel to minimize this problem if I bought another. I believe they are steel inside, unlike the white plastic.

Most everything about the Breville Soft Top electric kettle is great. I love the look, it's well built, and it's easy to use. But there is one glaring defect that I can't get over: the smell and taste of burnt plastic. We noticed the chemical-heavy scent immediately. I figured it would go away with a few uses, but I was wrong. After a couple weeks of daily use, we called Breville and they instructed us to boil vinegar or lemon and water. We did that, but the smell and taste never abated. Every cup of tea had strong notes of plastic. Sigh. As much as I love this kettle, I simply can't deal with plastic-tasting tea and I'm worried about potential long-term health effects. Love the look! But strongly suggest avoiding this product.
