Already broken, poor quality

I purchased this kettle around 2 years ago and it has already rusted through and started leaking through the handle into the electronics. Now the kettle randomly starts boiling by itself. My sister has the same kettle with the same issue, so seems like it might be a broader product fault/general poor quality. Company wouldn’t replace as outside the warranty period but when i purchased a sunbeam I didn’t think I would already be replacing it after two years. Show details

Let down by poor design

Boils water, does it pretty quickly, looks good, different temperature settings. But the lid is really hard to open, requiring lots strength to pry it open (so not particularly safe). And two years on, the broken handle on the lid is the result. Surprisingly little was holding the handle to the lid. Still selling today for $130-150, which makes a 2 year lifespan extremely poor value. Recommend against this model and those with the same design. Show details

Stylish Product

Loved that’s it’s cordless, and all the different temperature I can set it to in a press of the bottom. I loved it so much I had to buy the matching toaster. Show details ·  1

Nice but flawed

We had this kettle for almost three years. I am assigning only 3 stars, because of two problems. The paint around the water level gauge started to bubble and flake after a year. It was still fine to use, no leaks, only minor visual. Then recently the knob on the lid fractured off with only a bit more than normal pressure. The plastic was so narrow here on the lid there was nothing solid enough to stick it back to.
However in operation the kettle has a lot to like. The variable temperature setting always worked, the operation tones were pleasant and just loud enough. and it was moderately quiet. If you can trust your family to be gentle with the lid, then go for it. Show details

Leaking after the first use. Very poor quality control!

Boiled it once then came back to a puddle on the bench. It leaked from under the handle. Obviously faulty construction so I’m taking it back for a refund. Don’t want to risk getting another faulty unit because I’m not the only one this has happened to. I thought sunbeam was a reliable brands I could trust, very disappointed. Show details

Love my kettle

At first it had new kettle taste, but since cleaning and more use no odd taste
Very easy to determine water level and very quick at boiling. The outside of the kettle is not hot to touch, great that there is a button on the handle to open the lid- avoiding steam burns. Show details

foil not metal

for the price, it’s poor quality. shiny metal trims turn out to be shiny paper. now coming away. not what you’d expect from this price of kettle. out of warranty now but used for just over the 12 month warranty period. Show details

Quieter than expected

An upgrade. Previously owned white plastic cordless kettles, last one being a Sunbeam KE2350 so this fancy kettle is amazing. (I'm not loyal to any brand) Surprisingly quiet and fast boiling for a metal electric kettle. Handle is comfortable in hand. Lid can be warm to touch if removing carelessly. In regards to the water level
other reviewers commenting on unable to read - once used to using kettle for a while you don't read the water level gauge, I go by the weight of water in the kettle upon filling. I can quickly line up the kettle to deposit back onto cordless power base(found this to be an issue with some base designs on the market). Variable temperature so so handy. Currently four months old and still loving it! Show details

Quick and quiet

I love how fast and quiet that kettle is. It’s not like having a space rocket ready to take off in my kitchen anymore:) I must admit I was very ignorant assuming that you need a boiling water for everything. Now I’m obsessed with the right temperature. I wish temperature indication could start from 60 degrees as I could use it for my recipes with honey and general cooking. Thumbs up for design and overall quality! Show details

The best acquisition I had working at home!

As a green tea drinker, I really love the "green tea" function, now I am preparing my Matcha Green Tea at the right temperature and I don't have to wait forever for it to cool down! Yay! It also boils very fast, perfect for making quick tea between meetings. The countdown panel also helps a lot!

The digital touch screen panel is great and the matte finish added a stylish look to my kitchen! I love the little beep sound it makes when it has finished boiling, super cool detail!
I highly recommend it!! Show reply

The perfect kettle

Not only does this kettle look super stylish but it is extremely practical. As simple as the push of a button - every type of tea can be the correct temperature. Gone are the days of waiting for a peppermint tea to cool down! The kettle boils quickly and quietly and has has a very smooth pour. I have already recommended to all my friends! Show details ·  1

Excellent features!

I was looking for a kettle & toaster that would bring me a great cost benefit and I am super happy with my choice! The kettle has excellent quality and features above average, not to mention the impeccable details.

It has a great capacity, digital panel and allows temperature control between 80° and 100° - which helps a lot when adjusting the correct boiling time depending on the drink I choose. It's a very complete digital kettle that I'm loving to use every morning!

This kettle is quieter than some others I've had and the amazing thing is that kettle emits a sound that warns me as soon as the water is ready to be used!

I'm very happy with this purchase! Show details ·  1

I have had this kettle for 18 months and love it, however I woke this morning to it making the Jingle noise untouched. When I went to use it, the jingle noise sounded at each temperature and then shut down. I had to turn it off at the wall to get it to start again. Any thoughts on what could be wrong?
