Breville Crystal Clear Glass Tea Kettle

Breville's sparkling glass kettle boils water in a hurry - and looks great doing it. A powerful 1800-watt heating element inside its 360deg. swivel base guarantees impressive efficiency, quickly boiling up to 7 cups of water. When the water is hot, the kettle lifts off the stainless-steel base for easy table service. Brilliantly clear German Schott glass kettle is as durable as it is beautiful. With the press of a button, the "soft-opening" lid opens slowly, allowing steam to escape gradually -- not in a scalding puff. Extra-wide lid opening makes it easy to fill and clean the kettle. The lid-release button is conveniently built in to the comfortable, contoured handle. Auto shut-off feature prevents the kettle from boiling dry. Illuminated on/off switch is easy to see in the dark. Detachable mesh filter keeps scale deposits out of your water.

Buying my third
January 6, 2014
I bought this kettle for my husband and myself last summer. I loved it so much that when my youngest daughter needed a kettle I bought one for her too. Now, I'm buying another for my older daughter. Clean, efficient. Straightforward. I love it. Incidentally we use drinking water for tea... spring water, I've found, leaves a mineral deposit, and drinking water doesn't.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Color, Size, Shape, Design

Worked for 6 months
November 12, 2013
This kettle worked nicely for six months. In the last month, however, after coming to a boil, the lid opens up on its own, and won't stay closed. This has happened when pouring boiling water into a cup and I narrowly avoided being scalded by the steam that escaped when the lid opened. It happens every time I use the kettle now, even though I always careful to fill the kettle to within the prescribed fill lines.
Cons: Difficult to Use, Quality, unsafe
