Electric Tea Kettle Review - Hamilton Beach 40865C 1.7-Liter Glass Kettle
When my last electric tea kettle died, I wanted a functional and affordable electric kettle that was from a good brand, sizeable, and aesthetically appealing. After a few searches, I saw a couple of Hamilton Beach Electic Glass Kettles and eventually bought the Hamilton Beach 1.7 Liter Electric Glass Kettle and for over five years now, I have been in love.
- Illuminating Blue LED lights
- Glass body design
- Pull up lid
- Automatic shut off
The first thing I fell in love with was the beauty of this electric glass kettle. It is made of clear glass and has illuminating blue lights inside that comes on once plugged in. The magnificence of this beauty becomes clear when dark and you switch off your kitchen lights, the soft lights come through and it's just so dreamy.
Glass Body Design
I needed an electric kettle that I could see through without depending on some read lines. The glass body gives it a pretty look and you can see everything going on in the kettle, no secrets! The glass is also solid, I've never dropped mine, but it feels like if it is dropped, it will not break easily.
I love the ease! You can lift this kettle off its base without the cord following you and messing around behind you. The cord stays with the base, so you lift your kettle and return it to the base when you are done pouring the content without any headaches.
Pull Up Lid
The lid is wide and opens easily which makes it easy to wash. The only thing that I do not like about this electric kettle is that, if you have hard water, there might be a buildup at the base. This however can be rectified by washing the kettle with vinegar and then you are golden.
When your water is boiled, the kettle shuts off automatically. If you don't close the lid properly, the water keeps boiling, but if the lid is well closed, once boiled, it shuts off.
In summary, this electric kettle has worked fantastically well for me. It has stayed durable even though I have two young boys who operate it. It heats water up fast and it's extremely easy to clean up. It's worth every dollar spent.
