I did a lot of research on kettles before actually buying one and I found this one and decided to buy it. I am so glad I did!! I love the brand Breville and they are a reputable company so I really love it. It looks great on my counter and it boils the water very quick which is an amazing thing. I also love the capacity of how much water it boils at once, it is more than other kettles. It is in stainless steel so it looks very modern on the counter and it is very easy to clean with stainless steel wipes. The water tastes great and it is better than the plastic kettles because in the plastic ones, the taste of the water is different once boiled. The price is not that high compared to other kettles but it is very worth it because it lasts a lot more and longer than other brands. It is an amazing kitchen item and I recommend it to everyone because it is a very needed item in the kitchen!
