Hamilton Beach 1.7 L Electric Kettle is rated NaN out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice little kettle Well, maybe not so little - the capacity is enough for the tea party. I had this kettle for more then a year, bought one for my parents, and recently - for my daughter. All are very pleased with it - it looks nice, durable, reliable, and boiling water super fast.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product I have had it for about a week or so, performance is great so far. It heats quickly and I like that the heating element is not inside where the water is heated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase I was replacing a 30 yr old Black & Decker which has been so reliable but the plastic was slowly degrading. This kettle was a great value and has some features I love. First, the window allows you to see how much water you are heating. It heats water very quickly for one or two cups of tea, but you can also heat up to almost 2 liters of water so you should have plenty for almost any need. The only plastic touching water is the window indicators, which the manufacturer says are made of non-toxic material. The stainless steel is attractive and not that hot to the touch after a few minutes. It is easy to pick up and easy to fill, with a pop-up lid. The only down side is it doesn't whistle, which took some getting used to, but the indicator does make a loud noise when it shuts off after boiling, so I don't really miss it any more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My previous model lasted 4 years. I am ordering another Hamilton Beach 1.7 L Stainless Steel tea kettle today to replace a similar model I purchased almost 4 years ago from WalMart. I used it almost daily for this period of time with great results until the on/off switch on the base stopped working. The 2 year warranty I purchased with the appliance turned out to be waste of money, so I will not purchase a warranty again and just consider this appliance to be a medium term disposable item to replace after a few years use. It does work very well and heats water extremely fast, so I would recommend Hamilton Beach for this reason. I considered buying a glass version of this stainless steel version until I read negative reviews about difficulty in cleaning, a fragile lid, and the inability to add water immediately to boil again due to potential glass breakage. The stainless steel version is thus more durable, and like glass, will not effect the taste of your tea or coffee with any accompanying metallic taste. Its a good product and a Best Buy for the money. I recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hamilton Beach 1.7 L Electric Kellte I don't like electric kettles that have anything but a smooth surface inside the kettle and this one had a little pipe on the inside, so I chose the Hamilton Beach 1.7 L programmable kettle instead of this one. The inside on the programmable one was completely smooth.
