KEK1722 1.7L Electric Kettle Empire Red is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 140.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent We got this 5 days ago, and so far it has been excellent. When the water boils at the highest temperature, it is definitely hot, and that's a good thing. It made me think that my previous kettle wasn't really that great as it didn't get as hot as this one. It's a very sleek, elegant and modern kettle. This kettle has amazing features!! I love the different temperature options and the blue light whilst watching the water boil. It literally makes watching water boil fun lols In saying that, I will give another review in a years time to really see how the product is performing, hopefully it'll be the same as when we first bought it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A short term investment After seven months of use this KitchenAid Electric Kettle is showing signs of failure. 1: The press button on the lid top fails to open the lid 1 in 3 times. This fail-to-open issue occurs even if the kettle is hot, warm or cold. 2: The electrical connection between kettle and base is also beginning to lose contact on occasions, and the kettle must be removed and repositioned to hopefully connect. For a kettle costing a three figure sum it really is of the quality you would find in a bargain basement K-Mart kettle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Experience I've purchased a KitchenAid Blender, Food Processor, Kettle, Toaster, Stand Mixer in the last 30 days and the experience with the Whirlpool (holding company of KitchenAid support) is absolutely horrendous. They were closed and unavailable on the days I ordered the product I needed support on, then refused to assist when I needed assistance and support on the order, and now are paying lip service and being absolutely condescending in their replies. The KitchenAid product is quality, but the support and after sale experience in absolutely unacceptable and has put me off the brand totally.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Review solicited too early! After two days of ownership (and this is the second request for review via KitchenAid emails).... How is your KitchenAid product performing? Like you’d expect a 2 day old kettle to perform, like a brand new kettle. What have you loved about it, and what do you think could be improved? It boils water - I love that. Though it would be better if it were a robot kettle that cleaned my house after making me a cup of tea. Let us know what you have been whipping up! Tea. Mmmm whipped Tea. 2 Stars only as this review has been solicited far too early. Perhaps invite comment at the end of the warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dream kettle I’ve had this kettle for just over 2 years and love it. Was recently contacted regarding a product recall and within a week I had a new one delivered to my door. I love the soft almond colour to match my kitchen, the soft blue light on the window, variable temperature settings- a major bonus as my husband and I have very different temp preferences, it’s quiet when boiling, comfort of touch buttons and handle is perfect. This is my dream kettle!

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 3 out of 5 by from Great product - Shame about the handle problem. Sorry to say but we bought this kettle less than a year ago and the handle is about to fall off. We cannot see a way to secure it to the body. Hopefully the replacement policy will effective.

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.
