    I bought this stainless steel kettle to replace a plastic GE one that I loved, but it wasn t stainless and it didn t have the bells and whistles of this one. I loved it, it heated the water quickly and cut itself off when the water boiled. It had a seperate base that stayed plugged in, all I had to do was lift the kettle and pour the water out. So great. Unfortunately, it just stopped working. At first it would stop working and then start again. But alas.....it has now stopped for good. I had to dig out my ugly GE one. I only paid about $12 for the GE, and it s worked daily for about four years....this one was considerably more, and it s dead after nine months. So sad.....I shall miss it, but will now look for a stainless steel one of another brand. Rest in peace lovely kettle. Oh....I purchased it at Target....on clearance in Dec/07 for about $25. A Good deal.....if it worked longer.

    "Cool to touch" is great and I wish all stainless steel kettles would offer this feature. I like the design and it has been performing well for us. Quick to boil, pretty quiet, accomodates even large volumes. Hope it will last. We got it 4 months ago.

    I ve had the Hamilton Beach Cool Touch Tea Kettle for two years and I ve had no problems with it. I love it for the following features:

    - Stainless Steel
    The most important reason I got this kettle is that its interior is made of stainless steel, not plastic. Boiling water in plastic just doesn t sit well with me what with the talk about the health hazards from harmful chemicals (e.g. BPA, DEHA) in plastic leaching into food and drinks.

    - Seamless Metal
    Inside and out, I simply can t find a a metal seam - the kettle is a one-piece stainless steel construction and have absolutely no joints where pieces of stainless steel are welded together. There is, therefore, no need to worry about the water being contaminated by lead from solder.

    - Quick Boil
    It boils 40 oz of water, the maximum capacity, in 4 minutes. (I actually timed it. Boil times will of course vary depending on altitude and the initial temperature of the water.)

    - "Cool" Touch
    When boiling water in the kettle, the exterior of the kettle is warm, not hot, so you don t risk getting burned.

    - Wide Opening
    The wide opening makes it easy to fill it with water and to clean.

    - Easy Plug In and Plug Out
    To "plug in" the kettle to the power supply, simply sit the kettle on the base unit. Similarly, simply lift the kettle to "unplug" it. It s a one-handed operation, and there s no cords or plugs to mess with.

    - Spring-Loaded Lid
    The spring-loaded lid flips open with the press of a button on the handle. The lid can also be easily detached by pressing a button on it to release a catch.

    - Auto Shutoff
    When the water starts to boil, the power button pops up, the green LED indicator turns off, and the kettle automatically shuts off. There is also an audible "click" as the power button pops up.

    - Looks
    The kettle looks attractive with its simple curves and brushed stainless steel finish.

    As for Cons, there s just one for me:

    - Hard-To-See "Max" Water Fill Mark
    The interior has a "Max" mark to indicate the maximum water level but it s not easy to see it. Work-around: The lid is hinged in the middle, so when it is flipped open, the bottom half of extends below the rim of the kettle. It so happens that the bottom of the lid lines up with the "Max" mark, so you can use the lid as a marker for gauging when the water level reaches the mark.

    The Hamilton Beach Cool Touch Tea Kettle is attractive, easy to use, and boils water quickly. I don t think you can go wrong with this one.
