I requested this kettle as a Christmas gift to replace a smaller electric kettle I have been using at work. My other kettle was made of plastic. With all of the information regarding plastics emitting chemicals that are unhealthy, I wanted a stainless steel kettle. I feel much safer knowing that my kettle is not leaching hazardous substances into the water I boil for tea, coffee and instant soups while at my workplace. The automatic shutoff feature is essential and eliminates any danger of running the kettle dry as could happen with a regular stove top kettle. In fact, I like it so much; I'm going to ask for another one to use at home when my birthday comes around this year.

The Scanpan Classic Square Griddle is versatile and essential to my collection of Scanpans. It's great for making French toast, pancakes, grilled cheese sandwiches, heating tortillas and more. I also use it to cook sliced polenta, zucchini and tofu squares. The griddle surface is even and flat which is important when making pancakes - the batter doesn't run to the side of the pan. I love this pan and highly recommend it.
