3 out of 5 eggsDecent for the price.

Pros: Boils water
Cheap
Anodized base inside

Cons: No on/off switch
No dedicated base station (read: cord is attached to unit)
Plastic side walls
Hard to clean the inside

Other Thoughts: Draws 730 watts (+/- 10 watts) -- For a household kettle, this is kind of low. But on the plus side, it is doubtful that it will trip your circuit breaker. This is also good for use with a generator (RV or camping trips) as it won't exceed the limits of the generator.

Personally, I'm okay with the lack of on/off switch and the lack of docking base, but the plastic sidewall is a turn off. I don't like boiling water in a plastic receptacle.

As for boiling water, it takes ~8.5min to heat up 32oz (a quart) of water. That's probably faster than my camp stove, but slower than the "power" burner on my gas stove at home (~6.5min).

In comparison to my 1400-watt electric tea kettle, it can boil a quart of water in about 4.5 minutes. But it was also about $50 and has all the modern features of an electric tea kettle (docking base station, auto shut-off, etc.)

In conclusion, this is a decent tea kettle for $20-ish, but I only plan to use this on camping trips.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat kettle value

Pros: I have had this same kettle for around 20 years. It just recently began to rust out and leak a little bit. It has been quick and reliable all these years and I'll definitely buy another to replace it. It heats water quickly and is simple to use. Just add water and plug it in. It's quiet and has a whistling sound to tell you when the water is hot. A great feature is that it stays cool on the outside - safer when little hands are around.

Cons: You cannot open it up to clean scale, etc. out of the inside.

5 out of 5 eggsPresto! You've got hot water!

Pros: Small footprint, doesn't take up much space.
Heats water fairly fast. Easy to fill. Doesn't dribble when pouring.

Cons: The small size and capacity may be a problem for larger families. No direct access to the insides for cleaning.
Short power cord.

Other Thoughts: I've always kept a stovetop kettle for coffee, tea and oatmeal, but found the slow heat up time annoying.
The Presto does a great job of getting the water steaming hot and fast and doesn't heat up the kitchen in the process. It's a great value for the money spent.
