Looks very nice and boils quickly. Good customer support.
The first one had a faulty lid that was stuck closed. Kitchen Aid customer support were very good and sent us another one with a minimum of fuss. Kettle just over 12 months old and the lid is sticking closed when hot and it's taking too long to shutdown at boiling point causing the kitchen to steam up. It's a bit heavy but this is to be expected for a metal kettle. Expensive.
No, this product has too many drawbacks.
