Loving our Kettle!
So far we are loving our kettle, perhaps Kitchenaid have improved since the last reviews. It is quiet , looks beautiful in our new kitchen and we like the retro style. The sliding bar allows for boiling water to different temperatures for different styles of tea etc. Yes, it is expensive the most expensive kettle we've purchased, but feels like quality also.
We would not normally spend so much on an item but we bought it originally as a breakfast set (with the 4 slice toaster) however after being told after our order our first preference was no longer an available we had to settle for having a different colour toaster and kettle. We did recieve a better kettle so not complaining.
Was great until it wasn't
We loved this retro style kettle - it looks great & was something different compared to everything else out there at the time. Now the thermostat seems to have gone & we no longer get boiling hot water. We've had the kettle for around 3 years now, but with the near $300ish price tag you'd expect it to last a long time. This is the most expensive kettle we've ever purchased & ironically will be the 1st kettle we've ever had to replace because it no longer works, rather than it just being time for a new one. "You get what you pay for" not really true in this case.
Do me a favour mate !
My daughters replacement kettle has just gone fubar after just 2 months, I was surprised to see on the label it was made in China ? Blimey mates, someone is making serious coin out of these overpriced pieces of junk, are they worth $180 ? Course they're not, my daughter bought it because it said ' Kitchenaid ' on the box, do yourself a favour, go down to the corner hardware store and pick up a $50 made in China kettle that does the same job and might last quite a bit longer
We purchased the toaster and kettle together as a matching set. The kettle base had an electrical fault and had to be returned. The replacement was in a different paint shade but we stuck with it. However, the kettle has died again and we are giving up. The toaster and Kettle will go back to the store today and we'll purchase reliable budget products instead.
Expensive but a great kettle
Like most Kitchend appliances you get quality but at a price . This kettle costs $349. Having said that it's well built . I Filled it with cold tap water and it took 4 minutes to boil 1.5 litres . It has a slide temperature control on the cordless base ranging from 50 to 100 degrees Celsius . There are two temperature gauges . One on the kettle its self , the other on the base that lights up a led meter . One thing I noticed was the outside of the kettle remained cool to touch . Also the spout dosent drip ( I tried to make it dribble and couldn...'t ) . The heating element is concealed in the interior of the kettle . Construction materials are mostly metal with plastic parts . This makes the kettle a bit heavier but gives it solid feel . I bought mine at tvsn as it was the only place I could find one . The ones on eBay appear less expensive but are from the USA and don't work in Australia ( different voltage ). So far the kettle has been working perfectly .

Has anyone else noticed that the handle on the pro line candy apple red kettle is a different colour to the lid which is silver it’s more of a gold colour
Is the plastic used in this Kettle BPA free?
Hi, I saw a few people reviewing on Amazon saying the interior is about 70% plastic. Is this true?
