- best kettle everReview by Gobind
Price Value Quality
(Our old kettle croaked, so we were boiling water in pots for a few months. Too slow, and sometimes forgot. So there's the price of a new saucepan. So over that.)
I love the pull ring on the Breville power cords, great to keep them in good condition with frequent unplugging.
Enjoyed placing the order by phone, BTW. Glad you employ live people. (Posted on 5/23/2013)
