Heats the water as expected. Packaging was sufficient to keep the product safe and secure in transit. It arrived in two days with prime shipping.
I bought this to replace my plastic one, as i was mildly concerned about possible health risks of drinking water boiled in plastic in my daily coffee. I’m very happy with this product. It looks very nice, boils quickly, and turns off reliably when boiling is complete–occasionally my old one would keep on boiling and evaporate a bunch of the water.
Gourmia gk-250 is pretty, boils water quickly, and still works after about a year of constant use (five or six cups of tea per day, every day).

Comments from buyers
“Great kettle, works as stated.
, I LOVE it. It is very pretty and looks great
, Pleased with my purchase
I have used this for a couple of weeks now and can say that i am very pleased with the performance. Within just a couple minutes i have hot water for tea (or instant coffee if i am in a real hurry and no time to brew). It basically brings the water to a boil, so if you do not want the water that hot just turn it off prior to this. The remaining water is usually still hot enough to make a second cup of tea 30 minutes later. This has replaced the kettle on my stove top.
Works precisely how one would hope: it brings water to a boil. Something worthy of mentioning, however, is that the heat is not contained and the outside of the kettle heats up as well. While this may seem like a “duh” statement for some, there are kettles where the design is such where the outside remains room temp, even when the contents are boiling. This is not one of those kettles. As such, be careful when handling directly after heating so you don’t burn yourself.
This model replaced my years old version which was not as high and narrow, it had more of a teapot size and shape. I love the modern take on this sleek model, does the same job at perfect quality standards, and it looks like a really cool kitchen accessory. In fact, i couldn’t help but notice that this kettle doesn’t have the same long cord as my old version, which kept getting in the way. Really well done and goes along with me from counter to table. That way everyone gets to pour and it really heats up super fast. They claim ‘faster than a microwave’ and it really is that fast.
i received a defective one, but then, the customer service representative i spoke with was very helpful. They addressed my concern very well. I received a replacement very fast. Kudos to the seller and customer service representative i spoke with. This product is very simple but it boils fast and functions well.
I purchased the gourmia cordless kettle since it looked very impressive for its price point. It sits on the counter and is a breeze for coffee or warming baby bottles throughout the day. It’s great that it lets me know when the water is fully heated, and you definitely don’t want to lift it off it’s base mid cooking since the water won’t be fully boiled. Perfectly piping hot water every single time, and it looks great while doing it.
I was very happy with this kettle until it broke after 2 years. The plastic on/off switch mechanism relies on a very thin plastic part which snapped on me. It makes me upset that things are not made to last and our landfills just keep growing.
For hot water baths or for hot water bottles or to soak a baby bottle or for the basic tea or coffee, this is amazing. It has a very clean and sleek look, which really adds a lot to the counter, as opposed to the weak plastic kettles. I’ve been through a few hot water kettles and this one is definitely the best one – it’s not expensive, and it works really well, looks really nice, and it’s cordless, which is just an added plus.
First, let me say, i was not a lucky one who received this with a promotional discount. That being said, i like this little kettle a lot. It heats the water up quickly, holds a fair amount, and looks good in my kitchen. I love that you can take it off of the base and do not have to unplug it every time you use it. An average of 2-3 times a day in our house. If i were to have a con, i would say the power switch can be a little sensitive. Sometimes i have to push it down a couple times to get it to stay on, but realistically, that might be user error. :)in the end, i would recommend this kettle.
I use my gourmia frequently as i drink 3-4 pots of hot tea a day, every day. I have had it for about a week and it is working wonderfully. I love that the lid latch lifts the lid but i don’t have to keep holding the latch while i fill the pot–the lid stays up until i close it. The pot looks good on my counter and works very well for me.
All the good stuff is as other reviewers said, however, i bought it in feb. (return option closed in march), and just yesterday (aug. 6), a problem developed with the lid/handle assembly. The latch to open the lid now sticks, and the handle is pulling away from the pot. It looks like a screw might be loose (or broken), but the lid is not removable so i can’t get inside to see. I’m afraid i’m going to have to toss it. I’m trying to decide if $20 divided by 6 months of use is worth it.
This is a good water kettle. Better than the one i had, which was by aroma, which lasted barely 1 year.
I had no idea how much i would love an electric kettle. It’s cute, super fast and easy to use- literally just a switch flip. I could have gotten a much smaller one b/c i just use it with my french press, but whatevs. I’m sure some day i’ll be glad i can hear up so much water. Great kettle and awesome price.
Lovely looking and stylish design, and is a beautiful addition to my kitchen counter. Very lightweight, in fact much lighter than i had anticipated. Works wonderfully and came with excellent pre-use and cleaning instructions.
Just received so far so good.
Auto shut off when the water is boiling. I especially like that it is not plastic.
It works just as good as the expensive $$$$ model that my sister has in london, england. Stainless steel inside and out with a window to see your water level. Do not submerge entire pot in water when washing. Easy to clean and heat up your water so fast.
Stainless looks so good on counter.
I received my gourmia tea kettle today and used it immediately. It is very pretty and looks great in my kitchen. Easy to use and heats up pretty quickly.I would recommend this to everyone.
This is my first purchase of a gourmia product, and so far i must say i’m very satisfied with it. This is a well-built electric kettle, and does its job well, as it is supposed too. I bought for the express reason of being able to quickly make my morning cup of tea, and this works very well for that. The water reaches boiling point in about a minute or so. The kettle feels solid and well-balanced in the hand when you lift it by the handle. Plus, it also looks good on my kitchen counter.
My morning routine consisted of getting out of the shower and turning the stove top on to boil water in the kettle. It would take about 8-10 minutes for the water to boil and the pot to whistle. Now i just flick a switch and i have over a litter of boiling water in 4-5 minutes. I can’t believe how fast it is.
Needed a replacement kettle as they only seem to last about two years, after that the conductivity between the kettle and the base fades. This product seems of good quality and has a pleasing style to reside openly on the kitchen counter top. Overall the product lived up to its advertising and was delivered promptly. I recommend it to anyone who wants a good looking kettle that boils water quickly.
