Item: Krups Silver Art Collection Electric Water Kettle
Overall Impression: This isn't a cheap kettle, but it is well made and functions at top levels. It may be too shiny for some, but I really like its chrome surface and elegant lines.
As I've already confessed in previous a post, my electric hot water kettle is perhaps the most used small appliances in my kitchen. It's important to me that my kettle is safe, efficient and a real workhorse. While the appearance is also something to consider, if it doesn't work well then I won't buy it. So when the Krups people sent me their new, fancy-pants electric kettle, I approached it with some skepticism.
