KRUPS BW720D Performa Stainless Steel Cordless Electric Kettle : Three Stars

No more forgetting that the tea has boiled for half an hour.

Good product, even it might be a little slower than described.

It heats up water quickly and seems to be a quality product. . But then we’ve only been using it daily for a month.

Excellent machine and it’s reliable and simple to use.

Will not fit a childproof electrical outlet. Had to change the outlet to non-childproof.

KRUPS BW720D Performa Stainless Steel Cordless Electric Kettle, 1.7-Liter, Silver :

This kettle leaks water from the bottom, when it is filled close to three-quarter’s full, in my experience.

This a simple no nonsense electric kettle. The water has no odor or taste added by the kettle. Construction and finish are superior. The kettle is used pretty much exclusively used for boiling water to make tea. I have no need of buttons and programs. This just has an on/off switch which is the only control i need on a kettle.

I like this electric kettle. I got it because after years of faithful service, our previous krups kettle finally wore out. This kettle heats quickly and is attractive. I like that there is a water level window on both sides of the kettle and i like the lever that turns it on. The only reason i gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is that it is a little noisy, much more so than our previous kettle.

Heats quickly and looks nice. I wasn’t sure about the separate base but ended up really liking that feature.

After our last (much used) krups kettle died on us, i was worried i would not find one i liked as much. I like this one even better. It heats quickly, the open spout is nice and the filter is placed so that it will never fall out when pouring. The only drawbacks i can see arethat if you remove it from the base before it turns off, it will still be on when you replace it. Not a big issue, as it turns off it once it boils- or you can flip the lever off yourself – also the top opens by pressing a button but you have to close it by hand. Again, not a big issue, but your hand will leave prints which have to be cleaned off. I just use a dishtowel to push the lid shut. Would be nice to be able to close with a button as well, especially since it is a bit hot. Overall a great buy and i would purchase again.

I bought this as a christmas gift and am glad to say that it was a big hit.

Here’s the deal – electric tea pots are not going to last forever. A crappy one, you’ll never see two years. A good one, like this, you’ll get about five or six years out of. Something is going to happen – it’s going to leak, or stop working entirely. I estimate any way you slice it, you’re going to be spending roughly $20 a year on electric tea kettles. In this case, because it’s $100, assume you’ll get five years out of it. Aside from all that, it’s a well-made unit, with quality stainless steel inside. And yes, it’s made in china. The only complaint, is that the switch for opening the lid is a little funky, and doesn’t feel quite as solid as the rest of it. They last longer than other brands.
