Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I had hoped that the low review score was because it was a new product. When I received it I plugged it in and set up the clock and auto start. I did not have any problem with that as the other reviewer did. I ran a full kettle of cold water to 205 degrees and it was very fast. When I filled the kettle again for the second of three cleaning runs I noticed a puddle of water under the unit. After inspection I dicovered that it was leaking where the spout joins the kettle. Very poorly made. Too bad. I called the manufacturer and they said they would call me back but haven't. Returned to Amazon.
I have the Switch Kettle with the temperature gauge and the probe that drops through the lid. I love the design. I've used it for three days, and I'll update after more use. I've used it for both pour over coffee and for loose tea. So far, everything is perfect. The spout is well-attached.The quality of the stainless seems high. The water heats quickly and pours in a very controlled fashion. The interior is all stainless, though there is what appears to be a silicone washer through which the temperature probe passes as it goes through the lid. It is very small and does not touch the water, but it is there.
Everyone who has seen the kettle has commented on how attractive it is.
The temperature gauge itself is on top of the lid, easily visible, though the numbers (C. and F.) are a little small for easy reading. After a short while, though, you have the gauge memorized. I haven't tested it for accuracy, but the gauge seems accurate. I let it go all the way to boil...
I ordered this to go along with my aeropress and have so far been very happy with it in the week I've been using it. The main feature I was looking for in an electric kettle was one that I could program to come on at a certain time so that I could have hot water ready to go when I go to make coffee in the morning, and this was one of the very few options that had that capability.
The kettle itself is pretty light, and the size seems perfect for having just a couple people use it. It doesn't take up too much space on the counter and looks nice. It heats up in about 4-5 minutes to about 205 which is typically what I have it set for. The instructions are pretty easy to follow and getting it set up and learning how to use it only takes a few minutes. You can quickly select from preset temps or manually select the exact temperature you want to heat the water to. Programming the kettle is simple as well, and takes just 20 seconds or so. Unfortunately you can only set one...
