The kettle arrived in excellent condition, no dings, dents, chips or breaks. Holds a generous amount of water. High quality construction and materials, not cheesey. Well balanced, easy to hold and pick up with or without water in it. It has the minimum of bells and whistles which means less to break down over time. It has a red light on the base of unit which lets you know its working. The automatic shut off is located in the screen area where the pour spout is located. Heats a full pot of water quickly. Cord winds around the underside of the base so you can find the right length between your kettle and outlet without excess cord on your counter top. To fill the kettle just lift the lid with your finger tips by pulling up on the lid. There is a special raised area (or a groove don't know how to describe it) on the lid just for lifting it up..... so easy. Fill the kettle with water to the fill mark then close the lid with your hand and make sure it snaps closed. Thats it. You don't...
I have had my Toastess Glass Kettle for 2 1/2 years now. It gets used 8-10 times a day (major caffeine/hot and iced tea addict). It has functioned fine, I have enjoyed the product and will absolutely buy it again when I need another. Only recently the automatic shut-off stopped functioning. No problem for me - - I am always in the room while the water is heating. The little clip just broke off the handle (was used to hold the top open when not in use). Does not affect the functioning and I don't care about the missing piece. This unit gets a lot of use at my house (between me, my husband and daughter). It requires only the usual occasional descaling with vinegar/water that all kettles need. I would definitely buy it again - - and would have given it 5 stars, but someone might question that rating because of the 2 recent minor issues I mentioned. Other similar units I have owned have lasted only 1-2 years with heavy use.
I decided to buy an averagely priced kettle instead of a more expensive model. Toastess TGK760 with its glass container seemed like a good choice. The kettle started to fall apart within the first month of use: automatic shut-off feature broke down right away as did a flimsy filter screen. Amazon was kind to refund my money. I do not recommend this kettle at all, hence a two star review (one star for a glass piece, which by the way is made in Germany ;-)). I am certain you can buy something more reliable for $60. Thank you.
