Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Love this tea kettle!

qpmama 7/18/2019

Got this to replace another tea kettle which had seen better days and couldn't be happier! This one takes up less counter space and is very sharp looking. Great tea kettle!

Super rapide et efficace

Suzie94 6/26/2019

Je cherchais depuis longtemps une petite bouilloire qui ne prendrait pas trop de place sur mon comptoir et qui ne serait pas remplie de boutons gadgets: ex. pour le thé, pour la tisane, ... Celle-ci remplit très bien mes conditions.

Safety Risk- Don't buy!

Jess4563 6/10/2019

Do not buy this kettle. I've had two and both of their automatic shut offs have failed, leaving the water to boil continuously. The first one failed after two months. I received a replacement because it was still under warranty, but the replacement developed the same problem just shy of two years. These kettles don't last and are a fire hazard.

Why oh why

GrumpyKettle 6/5/2019

People have been complaining about the plastic filter and housing for 2 years now and KitchenAid still decides to leave this "feature" in. On the website write up it does not talk about plastic inside the kettle. I discovered it after having bought it and actually gave it a quick test. I can't taste the metal but definitely can smell the cooked plastic with the lid open. I tried to find anything on BPA on the website but nothing solid written by KitchenAid. I only found a Prop65 warning and can't tell what it was for. Prop65 warning is an umbrella warning that covers lots of stuff, so I can't tell if it is even concerning. For all I know it could be about the electrical cord. So disappointed this is Kitchenaid. Please design something better and make it in the USA, some of us will save up and buy quality stuff and use them with pride for a while.

Perfect Size!

Aussie2019 5/14/2019

I looked for quite a while to find a small apartment side kettle for two. This fits the bill perfectly. Does take up much bench space and looks very stylish next to our Nespresso machine.

Works fast.

MAT22 4/15/2019

I bought this a month ago because it looked so cute and compact - which it is. It heats water to boiling in a short amount of time. The water is kept very hot. So it definitely is more efficient than other kettles I have owned.

DECEPTIVE SPECS

Shopping Fool 2/11/2019

Specifications: "Stainless steel body." Not possible. Kettle shows rust. Not just me. Have enjoyed KITCHENAID stand mixers, hand mixers, food processors, and blenders for many years. When manufacter skimps on small stuff and tries to hide it, such as the body of this kettle, I will express my dissatisfaction here and vow to never buy another thing made by KITCHENAID.

Great Features

Sylvie13 5/22/2018

I am Whirlpool employee and have to say how much I love my KitchenAid electric kettle. Right from its first use, I've enjoyed its space-saving size, how quickly it comes to a boil, and it's convenient auto shut-off feature. All that, and its stainless steel finish matches my other appliances nicely!

Angling Mad 5/8/2018

With its classic timeless design this kettle has a quality look and feel and does not strain your wrist. Can't comment on reliability but kettles are inherently reliable these days.

Claudie 4/18/2018

I bought this beautiful kettle and still very happy with the purchase. Still, I have to clean it with boiled water and vinegar to get over calcaire. Still a good choice

bad smell

fortin 3/27/2018

Il y a une forte odeur de plastique ou métal qui se transmet au gout de l'eau... Je suis vraiment déçue étant donnée le prix de la bouilloire. J'ai payé un peu plus chère pour avoir de la qualité mais je ne pourrai pas la garder, même après plusieurs utilisation, l'eau a une mauvaise odeur...

Nice design

Tea Drinker 2/7/2018

This was a gift. It is so cute! I use it all the time to make tea and I drink a lot of tea. The only challenge is that the water level gauge is difficult to see when putting water in. But all the solutions I can think of would not be good so I think it is the best it can be.

Wanted to Love This Kettle

Chaubrick 10/14/2017

I fell in love with this kettle when I first saw it; it was exactly what I was looking for. However, after only a few months of using it, I have been forced to boil water for my tea in a saucepan, as the water boiled in my electric kettle has a very strong chlorine smell and affects the taste of my tea. I have tried cleaning the filter and rinsing the kettle with vinegar as suggested in the manual, however, the chlorine smell remains. I am very disappointed, as sadly, I have to return my kettle.

So sad

9/25/2017

I bought this kettle about one year ago. I love my kettle. I'm English and I drink about 6 - 10 cups of tea, a day. It heats up quickly which I like, but, during the heating process it makes a loud popping sound! This past weekend it died on me! Just quit working, for absolutely no reason. I am very saddened by this. I was looking forward to a long lasting relationship with my Kitchen Aid Kettle. I paid more money for this particular kettle than any other kettle I've ever bought. Over the years I've bought a lot of kettles, non of which were the caliber of Kitchen Aid! I'm so sad.
