Boils water. Clear water level indicator. Lid flips open nicely. Got it on special for about $60.
Yes, it's noisy. Don't turn it on while waiting for the news or weather. The lid mechanism failed after a few months and we were sent a new one at no charge. Now it has failed again after about two years, and the spout is leaking from the weld, so we will get a new jug. On looking at the Consumer reader reviews, we will probably buy another, as it more or less does the job, and we have been put off by the reviews of other kettles. Better the devil you know.
Maybe, it depends on what you're after.
