KEK1722 1.7L Electric Kettle White is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 176.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stylish and functional Bought the KitchenAid Electric Kettle 2 months ago and I really like it. I love the KitchenAid brand and have their Electric toaster, Stand Mixer and Cold Brew Coffee Machine. I even have one of the original stand mixers from 1970 handed down from my parents! I like the quality of the electric kettle. It’s substantial and easy to lift off the base. Quick to come to the boil and I like that the kettle can reach any temp you select with the push of the plus or minus buttons. You can also hold the temperature for a while if you need to. Only thing I’ve had problems with is the push button on top of the kettle lid. It’s supposed to release the lid so you can put water inside. Sometimes I have to push it up to 10 times to get the latch to release and open which is a bit annoying. While other times it’ll open first time. Overall would recommend any and all KitchenAid products to friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, fast & temp holding function Very happy with my purchase after extensive research on all available options in this price range. Much lighter weight than a significant competitor & thus easier & safer to manage. Range of pre-set temperatures excellent for herbal teas. Although would have liked the ability to choose 5 degree increments rather than 10. Maybe next version will be able to. You can watch the temperature as it’s increasing & stop it at say 85 if you wish, but it means waiting & watching. A first world problem really. Otherwise excellent & looks great with all my other white appliances.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Features, Bad Lid! The only issue I have with this kettle is the flimsy catch on the lid, you have to press the button just right to get it to open. A shame as the quality of the kettle seems very good otherwise. It is the lid that stops me from giving it 5 stars in all categories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luuuuuuuuvvv it.. I searched and searched for a white kettle. Didn't know the brand I wanted but I knew he look. When I saw this kettle I loved it, its look is neat and clean. Stylish with a great brand name. Boils so fast. The blue lights are nice , easy to see water gauge, pours easily, easy to access lid. I just love my new jug. I've told my friends about my purchase they all thought the brand kitchenaid was out of their purchase range, I showed them it isn't. I'd love to get the toaster next, If you're searching for a new jug, I would recommend this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I bought this kettle in Aug 2018 and within 6 weeks the button on the lid no longer worked to open the lid. Took it back to place of purchase and received another kettle. Now the same thing has occurred on the second kettle. For a high end product extremely disappointed - not worth the price I paid. Now heading back to place of purchase again but will definitely not be replacing it with this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 1 year and had it replaced 3 times I bought this kitchenaid kettle whoch has only left me disappointed unlike the other items I purchase from kitchen aid I have needed to replace the kettle 3 times now as it just didn’t work . As it was still under warranty the process was effortless however it makes me wonder the durability of this product . Let’s see if this one breaks

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fell apart at aboout 26 months old I bought this kettle in Nov 2016 - it was considerably more expensive than other kettles - I had expected better. Unfortunately I can't say that I'm happy with it as I am not. I had expected better from what I thought was a quality product. Mind you the toaster, the blender and the mixer are still alive and kicking

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I don't recommend this product. The handle on this kettle is poor. Mine has broken just a month out of my 2 year warranty... and I can't get a call back from Kitchen Aide ... I'm not keen to.purchase again ....I have the matching toaster for bench top look. Now I need to purchase both a new kettle and a new toaster so they match... NOT HAPPY

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The "Lemon" We Regret Purchasing The original kettle, purchased in April 2015, was replaced during the product recall in May/June 2018 and the second new unit was replaced under warranty (would not switch on) in December 2108. We are now on our third kettle of this type and would not purchase another one or recommend it to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features I only had my kettle for 5 days and I had to return it yesterday, for a replacement, the lid wouldn’t open, had to use a knife to open it, I was shocked as I like this kettles features and it’s looks!, Hopefully There won’t be anymore problems with the replacement kettle

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love temperature control feature Had this a few the temperature control and also delighted to have a sleek, easy to clean kettle. The open device is on her lid and not a natural movement to open he lid when under the tap but thats not a deal breaker. Purchased this in the sale. Reluctant to pay full price as the first KitchenAid item I've bought and unsure of brand promise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior kettle Kettles have one job really, but this KitchenAid kettle is making a name for itself on the bench. The look and feel is great and the climbing temperature display is handy - as is the 30 min hold. I hit the kitchen in the morning before the rest of the family so knowing the water is still at 100 degrees 30 mins later works really well. Also, it boils more quickly than my last kettle and is quieter too. This is my 4th KitchenAid product (stand mixer, blender, mini chopper) and the quality is there.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Temperature settings. Quite while operating. This is my second KitchenAid kettle. Handle came off first kettle. I bought another because I liked the features and how quite it is when operating only problem is that lid trends to stick when trying to open while pressing black button.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The design does not achieve what should be simple I am trying to generate a warranty claim without success. no-one will respond to me. The button that is suppose to open the lid has failed in service after a very short period of time. After sales service is non-existent.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It rusts I bought this from David Jones Miranda less than a month ago. Guess what, the rim underneath the lid has started to develop rust spots. So much for stainless Steel. Will be demanding a refund.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's a great kettle but I brought my kettle a month ago and in all it's a good jug the lid is harder to open than I would like most of the time it will not open unless I pop my nail under it as I push the button

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Electric Kettle This kettle was a replacement under warranty for one we purchased in August last year. It died and was inoperable for no apparent reason. We hope this replacement one lasts a bit longer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Brilliant Love my Kitchen Aid kettle, but the lid often needs manual assistance to lift. Great size, shape, convenient and simple to use, no fancy gadgets.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bit dissapointed Bought the kettle and after five days it stopped working and we had to take it back to the shop but they were very good and replaced it straight away. I always drink green tea so heat it to 80 degrees then I have to boil it at 100 degrees for my husbands tea but nearly every time it won’t let me and I have to play with the temperature before it will heat up again. Dissapointing for a brand I always believed to be at the top end of the market and thought to be of high quality

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features I received this as a Mothers day present about 10 days ago. The kettle heats water quite fast, it has a digital temperature selection which is very handy when making drinks for younger children and the elderly and a three beep notification when water has reached the desired temperature is quite handy. It has a good handle, making it easy to carry when full of water and it looks great on my bench. I love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We love it, but I bought the kettle recently and we are extremely happy with it as a family. The volume it holds, variable temp setting and the blue light whilst boiling are all hits. Because we have other KitchenAid appliances in the same colour, it fits right in. We have noticed two issues: - makes a strange sound when boiling - the lid is difficult to open with the push button Other than that, we love it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from We have a problem I have had my kettle for a few months, brought it when we moved into a new house. Luckily we kept our 20 year old electric kettle because occasionally this kettle decides not to turn on. This is frustrating because I like everything else about it but as it was quiet expensive I am disappointed with my purchase. If I could find my receipt I would definitely return it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Same problem I generally love Kitchen Aid products but these kettles are a pain. Thanks to a wonderful service response I have received two replacement kettles but each has the same problem as the first. The lid will not open with a button push. It usually opens after three or four goes. I give up but I cannot recommend this product. Buy a much cheaper kettle. Avoid this model .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I know it's just a kettle! Still I really like this one. It is very quiet, very quick and the temperature setting feature is great. So many teas are meant to use 80 - 90 degree water. It feels sturdy and there is no bad taste that you can get with some kettles. It's not cheap but I expect it to last a long time (hopefully). Like the blue light and the beep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great features i bought this for a christmas present i have used it for a few days great so far modern design, as it is brand new i hoe it preforms well when in use daily , i like the temp control as i do have delicate teas sometimes so at the moment it is still new and works fine. i do think it is on the more expensive side so i hope the quality is there for a long time

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dodgy lid I only had this kettle for one month and the lid started to fault. It only opens occasionally when you press the button, I’m happy with it except for the lid. It’s frustrating and now I have to go through the hassle of a warranty claim. For the price this shouldn’t occur. I have four other kitchenaid appliances and have never been disappointed in them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features & extremely user friendly I bought these kettle a few weeks ago & Im extremely happy with it. It's a bit more expensive in comparison to most of the other brands in store but as the old saying goes you get what you pay for. It's definitely worth spending the extra dollars to get an item that is great quality and will last a lot longer than the other cheaper kettles.
