I bought this for my mother who is always burning kettles. It is fabulous. Holds enough water for her pots of tea and shuts off automatically. The lighted water measure is easy for her to see and she can bring the pot to her room without the base and cord. She can also brew loose tea in the pot because of the filter. It's very sleek and fits in well with the kitchen. The top is great because it lifts with a push of a button. Her hands are arthritic and it is hard for her to pull tops off. Wide mouth is easy to fill.
The only thing I can say bad about it is it doesn't have a retractable cord.
