Sturdy little kettle


The Hamilton Beach kettle was the first electric kettle I purchased to make tea. It works great, is a great priced and made my tea taste so much better than when I microwaved the water to heat it up. We traded up for a nicer looking kettle. The only...

This electric kettle does it good & fast.


This electric kettle is great.  I use it every morning to boil water to make coffee in a French press.  I thought maybe, being plastic, it would have tainted the water with a plastic taste but it does not at all.  I've even used it to hard boil eggs. ...

My Reliable Electric Tea Pot - Once Again, Function Over Form


For years I had a dilemma. I love tea, but I tend to be forgetful, especially of boiling tea kettles. This combination has produced a few burnt teapots. You would think that the toxic fumes of burning metal would be enough to cure that problem. You...
