Reviews around feature (4.70 of 5)

  • The features of this kettle are great, especially the keep warm feature and the easy temperature control.
  • The kettle looks nice, and the keep warm feature is good too
  • It boils water well enough but it emits beeps when it's done, an unnecessary and annoying feature for me
  • We decided the "keep warm" feature was the problem and disengaged that button
  • The first issue was the warning sound it makes when it boils, a critical feature.

Reviews around steel (4.68 of 5)

  • I found a much less expensive stainless steel variable temp kettle here on Amazon.
  • This should not have happened if they claimed it to be a stainless steel
  • I can't find anything negative to say except that the stainless steel gets dirty after a while.
  • Cuisinart CPK-17 PerfecTemp 1.7-Liter Stainless Steel Cordless Electric Kettle
  • Obviously, some cheap stainless steel was used

Reviews around temperature (4.61 of 5)

  • Each two leaves tea company™ tea has recommended steep temperatures, but there are a few hard and fast rules you can follow to determine what steep temperature to use
  • Also, I must say, I have been drinking tea at the wrong temperatures ALL my life!!
  • We love that it is so fast and easy to use and makes water at the perfect temperature for that perfect cup of tea
  • Getting always the correct temperature enhances my tea rather than destroying it.

Reviews around look (4.57 of 5)

  • It's very nice looking, and I used it all the time with no problems at all
  • the last think you want when you spend $100 on a kettle is to be back in the market 6 months later looking for another one... i wish i had kept my cheap looking kettle, it worked for over 10 years, and at least i would have hot water now
  • I've been looking at tea kettles for a while, I love how it's sleek and the water boils pretty fast as well
  • It's so nice looking and well-made, and the temperature adjustments are a great feature.
  • This is initially a very nice looking kettle with a wide range of options

Reviews around heat (4.24 of 5)

  • Does not retain the heat as well as I would like perhaps, but is otherwise a great kettle.

Reviews around design (3.75 of 5)

  • The design is not practical and I seriously doubt was ever tested by a human being who actually used it for its intended purpose
  • If you fill up the kettle, the awful design of the handle means that you either burn your knuckles (see #1 above) trying to hold the handle to balance the kettle, or you hold the handle too far down to be comfortable, and possibly needing two hands.3
  • We bought it because we like the design and good review.
  • And the design is nice enough to leave it on my counter.
  • I reported this obvious design flaw and safety hazard to the manufacturer and they responded that they would replace it for about 1/2 what I paid for it.

Reviews around thing (3.65 of 5)

  • I love this thing if anyone can love an inanimate object.
  • To have a unit which will not open for refills is not a good thing
  • This thing is a beast and I love it very much at the moment
  • only bad thing is with hard water, the element inside starts to develop scale on it.
  • This thing gets really noisy when it's boiling the water

Reviews around pot (3.62 of 5)

  • Excellent electric pot, especially for its tea temperature settings
  • After about 9 months of use, the pot started to leak around the lower handle attachment
  • We went for a more expensive pot, thinking we would get a quality product that would last a long time.
  • It's a great replacement for a traditional teapot, sure, but it's also nice to speed up things like boiling a pot of water -- we cook noodles a lot, and now we put half the water in pan and half in this, and it's boiling in half the time.
  • I carefully clean the pot every time not soaking the water in

Reviews around product (3.53 of 5)

  • This product is seriously defective and Amazon warranty is worthless.
  • Why should I pay $30 and wait so long for a defective product replacement
  • Note to Cuisinart - When your product is defective, the CUSTOMER comes first, not the manufacturer
  • All in all, this is a great product and I would buy it again for myself in the future.
  • They will charge $30 for shipping even though the product is defective.

Reviews around lid (2.39 of 5)

  • I air dry with lid open and clean wipe inside with a paper towel.
  • While it still works and functions properly the lid is so small that i cannot get my hands inside it to properly scrub it, the water regularly gets infected
  • The lid on the first one broke after about 6 months but was still usable.
  • The lid became rusted and ceased to function any longer in under two years
  • The lid was getting more and more difficult to open and now won't open at all.

Reviews around year (2.36 of 5)

  • Very happy!Update 09.01.2017: almost 7 years and counting!
  • The limited three year warranty is up so off to spend another $100
  • It is ridiculous to expect to keep replacing a water boiling gadget every other year, which cost as much as this does.
  • Lasted 1 and 1/2 years and the best it can do now is keep the water luke warm.
  • * Blue backlit water window; removable/washable scale filter; boil-dry protection with auto safety shutoff* Measures approximately 8-1/5 by 9-4/5 by 12 inches; 3-year limited warranty

Reviews around mechanism (2.18 of 5)

  • This kettle, however, never worked as stated, and the hottest I've been able to get the water, no matter the setting, has been 155 degrees
  • Had a slight issue with the lid not opening when the release button was pressed, manually working the mechanism a couple of times resolved the issue
  • The mechanism which operates to top cap broke within a month of service and after 1.5 year the kettle died completely...
  • Does not retain the heat as well as I would like perhaps, but is otherwise a great kettle.
  • In each case the lid mechanism failed and to top would no longer open so it could not be cleaned.

Reviews around bite (2.15 of 5)

  • I wouldn't recommend for carrying long distances because it is a bit heavy and awkward to hold once filled with water and heated but working on the counter right next to it works
  • It has very little water left and tries to keep boiling a tiny bit of water for no reasond
  • On the third or fourth year lid won't pop up when you press a button to open, you have to push it open which could be a bit tricky if your kettle is still hot from the previous use
  • I think that the boiling the water at different temperatures is a bit of a gimmick, we didn't like our tea not made with boiling water (what we are used to after 40 years I suppose)
  • A bit expensive for an electric kettle, but it's been great
  • Read remaining 11 reviews for bite

Reviews around star (2.09 of 5)

  • Does not retain the heat as well as I would like perhaps, but is otherwise a great kettle.
  • Loses a star because it should probably be better insulated; the outside gets too hot to touch.
  • It gets one star for looks and another because it still boils water.
  • Everything else has worked great though, so I give 4 stars as perhaps if exchanged, I would not have this problem again.
  • I would easily give 5 stars but my lid broke after about 15 uses

Reviews around screw (1.38 of 5)

  • The letters are still black, the screws are still shiny and the boiling times are still quick
  • Again, works perfectly except for the manufacturing defect of leaving a loose screw in it and the slight odor.
  • My issue is simple, I just found a loose screw bouncing around inside the kettle and after calling the customer service I was told that I have to pay $15 to have a new one sent to me and cut the cord of the original unit and send it back to Cuisinart (at my own expense)
  • I really want to like this kettle, but I just found a loose screw in it this morning
  • The screws under the lid started rusting after a few months of normal use
