The Black & Deck 1.7L Kettle in Stainless heats water quickly, a convenient view window makes it easy to see water level, and its two piece design (the pot rests on base) is extremely convenient. A wide mouth makes filling easy and a well designed spout means little or no drip when pouring.
However, the on/off indicator light is very difficult to see and on button doesn t provide any kind of feedback (like a click) so at first it was hard to tell if it was pushed. After we understood how the kettle works these became minor annoyances and do not pose any danger.
All in all a good product that with a little more refinement from B&D could have been great. Worth buying, but not worth a large premium over other kettles.
