5.0 out of 5 stars Cuisinart CPK1 7U Kettle, 29 Aug 2011
This review is from: Cuisinart CPK17U Multi Temp 1.7 Litre Jug Kettle Brushed Stainless Steel (Kitchen & Home)
Needed to replace my Russell Hobbs Stainless Steel Kettle, after over 30 years of loyal service.
Worked out that with inflation it would now cost at least a couple of hundred pounds!

Found a huge selection of kettles on the market, between twenty and ninety pounds. Looked at a lot, first on line then in shops. Found some were very flimsy, poorly finished, uncomfortable to handle, difficult to fill, with lids I couldn't open easily and short flexes.

Cuisinart's model had none of these faults; it had the longest guarantee (3 years) was solid, well-finished and stylish, with a blue light,handy temperature control and water gauge.

I noted the criticisms other users have made. In practice I don't find the brushed stainless steel, for both kettle and base, hard to clean. I actually like hearing the kettle boil, which it does rapidly, and guess any metal-bodied kettle boiling will be louder than a plastic one.

I have had no problems with it at all and am very pleased with my purchase. I already have a Cuisinart chopper/grinder that is well made and works well.

Hi Kitchen Queen
Does it really have a three year guarantee? I couldnt find any reference to that in the description. One of the other reviewers close to the top mentioned that their kettle died after 23 months. Of course Id be annoyed too having spent 66 which is a bit more than I've spent on a kettle so far. However Id be satisfied enough if it had a 3 year guarantee as Id expect it to last that long as a minimum and would be happy to get a replacement
If it does come with a 3 year guarantee then Amazon has certainly missed out some vital info
Would you possibly also be able to confirm if the entire interior seems to be stainless steel or is some of it plastic?
Thank you

No problem: I bought mine on 25th July 2011 and it's still going strong and I am still pleased with it. I like it being a bit weightier than some models and it's easy to fill because the top flips back. Like you, I didn't want to have a kettle that lasted only a year or two. Page 16 of my accompanying Cuisinart booklet says quite clearly it "is guaranteed for domestic use for three years" and it is with this understanding I've sent off the guarantee. The booklet has some useful tips e.g. how to keep it clean and also not to leave water standing in the kettle: something I follow. The interior of mine is definitely stainless steel (presumably why it's heavier). Hope this helps.
