Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Poor quality

Lee23 2/14/2019

I thought by spending a little extra on a kitchenAid kettle I would get a quality item. The inside started to rust within a year of using and the black paint began to chip off the exterior. I expected more from a KitchenAid product. I would not recommend this product.

Greg79 6/5/2018

This is a very good quality and nice looking product. It has a blue backlight that indicates water level and a quiet signal to let you know water is ready. It also has a helpful feature of real-time temperature display and a hold feature to maintain water temperature.

Perfect

leroy1947 5/30/2018

I bought this for my tea habit and it is perfect. Heats water quickly, to preset temps and the hold function is nice if I am otherwise disposed. If I am boiling a large pot of water for pasta I usually fill this up and the pot half way. It saves time getting the whole mess to a boil.

Perfect Kettle

BritLiz 5/30/2018

We drink a lot of tea in our house and this kettle is amazing. You can adjust the temperature setting and always get hot water, which, if you are a tea drinker, is essential to a good cup of tea. Love it!

"Saved the life of many tea kettles"

BabySal 4/12/2018

Before I purchased this appliance, I had burned up more tea kettles on the stove than I can remember. Zero since this appliance arrived. Convenient, quick & has keep warm setting I have many KitchenAid appliances, both big & small. I am extremely happy with them all.

Third kettle's a charm

Kellster 4/7/2018

Our recently recalled kettle worked great for 4 years. Replacement one had a faulty top (wouldn't open) and then fritzed out all together. Replacement for the replacement seems ok so far. Kitchenaid can't seem to get it together in regards to sending the faulty ones back.

Malfunctioning Regulator

AllieR 3/4/2018

I received this kettle on our Registry from the Bay. The first one I received had Chinese writing on it in sharpie. They replaced that one. However, I've had the second one now for 1 year and it has started to malfunction. I will turn it on and set it to 80 degrees and it will heat to about 24 degrees and sit there for about 10 minutes then it will begin to beep as if to tell you it has reached desired temperature. While it was working, we loved it. But for a kettle of this price to only last 1 year...that is not acceptable. I've had kettles that I paid $30 for and they lasted multiple years. Quite disappointed in this KitchenAid product, as other products I have from them function quite well. The Bay wouldn't take this product back, and I am hoping KitchenAid will replace it with a different type of kettle as I don't want another of the same. I am thinking of purchasing the Proline series kettle instead.

Takes about 5 minutes before it starts to heat up

s_r_b 1/31/2018

Unfortunately, I have to wait 5 minutes before the kettle starts to heat up. It's extremely frustrating as it does not boils water in minutes like the description says.

Sleek - but broke within 4 months

ayja 1/13/2018

I was hesitant to buy this kettle because of the price, but ended up purchasing it anyway because it matched my numerous other Kitchenaid countertop appliances. I liked being able to set the temperature and the alert when the water had boiled (or got to temperature). The thermometer starting malfunctioning pretty quickly, water at a rolling boil would only be registering at 80 degrees C. This would cause the automatic shut off and alert to not work, and the kettle to boil indefinitely. I stopped using it because of that danger. I had reached out to Kitchenaid via phone and email, but received no help or response. I was told someone would be getting back to me twice, but nothing. I tried to use the kettle again after not using it during the summer, but the problem had worsened. Water now 'boiled' at 15 degrees, which quickly led to the kettle shutting off automatically and the water only getting slightly warm. I went back to the store and asked if they could do anything, since Kitchenaid was not helping me. They have me the number of the local rep who I contacted. They responded assuring me it would be taken care of. I followed up after a few weeks and received a similar reassurance. I have since emailed several times and left a few messages with no reply. Very poor service from someone who's job is to represent the brand. Before this kettle, I had been more than satisfied with all my Kitchenaid appliances: blender, food processor, hand blender, stand mixer (+ice-cream maker, food grinder, sausage stuffer, pasta roller). It is extremely frustrating to receive such poor service.

Best electric kettle so far!

Mamusia09 11/26/2017

This kettle is amazing! I love the ability to set different temperature for different types of tea in °F and °C. It looks amazing on the countertop. The only thing I hope Kitchen Aid will fix is the issue with a lid. After few months it stops opening and I have to exchange it. It has happened with 3 of the kettles I got.

Died after 1 year

RN75 11/26/2017

I expected more from a kettle that costed so much. We thoroughly enjoyed it while it lasted, but we had hoped it would have lasted longer given the price.

Great Electric Kettle

Laineybop 11/8/2017

I've been using electric kettles in the UK for years but this is my 1st American and 1st Kitchenaid kettle, and I love it. I decided to spend a bit more and go for quality and so glad I did. It is quiet, quick to boil, has a water level window with a minimum of 1 cup which is perfect for one person. It has a nice big comfortable handle, good pouring spout and looks great too.
