This review is from: Toastess TGK486
Pros: It is visually very appealing.
Cons: It has a nasty habit of not turning itself off, and will happily boil water for WAY longer than it should. I'm not sure if this is because it simply cannot reach the temperature because of the poor insulation properties of glass, or if the thermostat is a bit iffy. Secondly, I have hard water with iron, so after a week of use, there was a noticeable build up on the heating element which (as per manufacturers directions) was removed with some vinegar. Overall I just felt like for $55 it really should have performed better. The plastic top feels really cheap, and while it hasn't broken yet, it feels like its just a matter of time until it does. Slightly disturbed by the drops of water that appear on the base, although it's likely those come from either condensation or a leak someplace or me being careless while filling it up..
Other Thoughts: I would just get a non-glass kettle next time.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: Died within 6 months.. Only way to get RMA with manufacturer is to email them - and the email address is dead - mail returned undeliverable (nice touch)..READ FULL REVIEW
