Rated 5 out of 5 by from Electric Kettle I am so in love with this! I use it every day. I drink a lot of coffee and tea, and this kettle is the perfect fit for me. It's very quick to heat and doesnt take much room on my counter. The design is sleek and the blue light is beautiful. I have bought my parents one and they love it too. I would recommend this over and over again!
