I had this kettle for a number of years and have recently purchased my second. It is efficient and is faster than a microwave or regular kettle, which means less use of fossil fuels! It is modern in design and looks very nice on my counter. I use it for making tea, coffee, and hot water in general; i.e. I'll boil water in the kettle and then pour it into a pot to make pasta for example. I live at high elevation and this really speeds up cooking time.
