Who needs an electric kettle? The stovetop kind work just fine! I don’t need another appliance cluttering up the place! I thought all of those things too. How wrong I was! I’ve had this bad boy for a day and I can not tell you how stupid I feel for not only doubting its awesomeness but also for not having bought this stovetop tea kettle one years ago.
Let’s get into the nitty gritty:
It’s fully stainless steal on the inside with the cap up top being the only piece near the water that is plastic. There is no funky chemical or plastic smell with this kettle. The heating element is in the base of the kettle, not the inside.
The water level markings, as someone else mentioned, are on the handle side of the inner chamber which really isn’t that big of a convenience unless you want to fill it to the max level.’

I wrote here about the lid no securing and was corrected! The lid DOES lock into place with a snap. It will automatically turn off as soon as water comes to a boil. I have a small studio apartment and can hear the “click” of this turning off no matter where I am. You can set the kettle down any which way on the base and it will work, there is no “secured position” that it needs to be. Handle may face any direction.
Another small feature I really enjoyed was the cord to this can be wrapped up INSIDE the base and secured so that while not in use the cord is completely out of the way. You can wrap it around once for a smaller cord or twice to completely hide it. Such a nice feature since I have such a tiny kitchen!
It heats up pretty quickly, faster than water on the stove. – Jaq
