Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

I loved it, but the kid stopped opening/working.

Casey 6/8/2017

It's extremely sturdy; I love the ability to battery-power the unit, the overall components were very strong and pleasing to look at while it worked, and you can manually enter a temperature of your choice. A couple of days after I got it, the lid stopped working and wouldn't open anymore and I pretty much had to rip it open just to get water inside, so I took it back and this model wasn't available so I got a different model which I like less, but the lid opens .

JamesD 5/25/2017

Good kettle, overall. Not too noisy, doesn't rumble or shake like some of the cheaper ones. The temperature settings are a little weird, because there is both Celsius and Fahrenheit, so instead of round numbers like 200, 175, you get some odd ones like 194.

It quickly heats up water! I wish it had a program to start automatically. I did try to hear milk in it but it scorched to the heater and had to be scrubbed off. I still can't get it to switch to Fahrenheit instead of Celsius. I like the blue lights inside.

CaliWife 2/25/2017

This is my very first review ever. I really like all of my Kitchen Aid helpers, even this one. Unfortunately the rubber handle has it's flaws. It will come off and when contacted Kitchen Aid the response was it was just outside of the warranty. Of course it still works but it looks very very ugly with partial rubber on the handle. Wish there was something that could be done.

Tea Lovers in NC 2/15/2017

I bought my kettle in November and we use it a lot! I love everything about it, except that it started rusting a little at the lid after 2 months. I'm guessing this isn't supposed to happen. I submitted a customer service request so hopefully I'll hear some helpful news!

Susan in NJ 1/21/2017

The Cook 12/12/2016

Works well, but at 1500 W it takes a lot of power and despite electrical standards up to code, the kettle cannot be operated at the same time on the same outlet as toaster-it trips the breaker. On its own, it sure works well.

If the electronics would work properly.....

Norber 12/10/2016

This the second kettle of this sort that we've purchased after the frist let us down by firstly not willing always to turn on when placed and finally switched off completely. As we like KichenAid stuff we bought a second one. Within half a year we are again experiencing problems with the electronics as is time by time refuses to switch on, of after using it starts warming up gain (whilst the hold function is not activated). Sometime it helps if we try a couple of time or shake the water within the kettle. Unfortunately it has been a rather disappointing experience this time.

JackF 11/25/2016

The annoying extra beeps when placing the device on its power platform have been eliminated. The Electric Kettle heats water quickly and works as advertised. If it significantly outlasts its predecessor( a previous incarnation of this model which lasted a month beyond the warranty), then I would whole heartedly recommend this. I suspect, this will outlast its predecessor only because my past experience with a variety of Kitchenaid products has been excellent.

Brit-in-USA 11/11/2016

Had this kettle for just a couple of weeks now. It is very quiet during boiling. I haven't timed the boiling process however seems an acceptable time in preparation for drinks. The handle feels comfortable with a good grip. Easy to fill as lid opens 90o. Looks sleek & stylish c the blue lights. I'm not sure I'd use the varying temperatures feature. Early days though, so perhaps in the future.

Empire Red Queen 10/29/2016

I was looking for a red kettle for quite a while. I was so happy to come upon the Empire Red kettle. I have the mixer and toaster. The kettle matches perfect. Looks great and has so many features(special temps for special tea. Lights up. A keep warm temp. It indicates specific temps." ). I also love the stainless steel interior and the wide pop up lid. It makes filling the kettle a breeze. I hope Kitchaid continues to make "Empire Red."

I Love This Kettle

suze49 10/3/2016

This kettle is well worth the cost. The company must have listened to previous reviews because there is a nice-sounding beep when the pot is turned on and it a nice sounding beep when the water reaches the temperature you have set it for. I love the fact that I can see the water level and I can see the water temperature. I also like the shape and the way it looks on my counter. Again, well worth the cost for the added features.

Reliable kettle

Danielle 9/30/2016

I bought my kettle in Feb 2015 and have used it everyday since then and it has worked like a charm! I use it for coffee in the morning and then tea at night. I love the feature to lock the temperature for a short amount of time so you can set your water and then walk away. The top button to open the lid has worn a bit and need a little extra firm press to pop open. The beeping is a bit loud and there is no way to turn it off or down and that is really the only thing I would change. I love this kettle! I've never replaced the filter and only now has it starterd to have an effect on the taste of the water. I wish it was easier to find the replacement filter in stores or online.
