A clean taste starts with clean water. How do you ensure a more pure boil? With the natural purity of glass -- easy to see, easy to clean. The Crystal Clear has a large-capacity, cordless jug made of German SCHOTT glass. Its high power means faster boiling. Ease of mind matches ease of use -- everything touching your tea is BPA free; the wide, soft-opening lid prevents splashes and the safety auto shut-off prevents boil-off. So simply elegant, you may want to watch water boil.

Breville Crystal Clear 1.7L Kettle - BREBKE595XL is rated out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LDGregF10 from Good looking, quick boiling kettle. Purchased this kettle about 6 months ago and have enjoyed it since. Breville quality. Good Looks. You can see the water boiling. Brings water to a boil pretty quickly. Smaller footprint than my last kettle so frees up a bit of counter space. Soft touch, slow open lid. Nice white-blue light around switch when turned on. Nice thick handle for easy grip. Not too heavy. Cons would be that the first several uses left a plastic smell but that quickly went away. Inside, on the bottom plate, a brown color developed where the element is (under the plate)--must be something in the water here in Richmond? Rocker Switch is under the handle mount and a little bit small--I would prefer it a bit bigger and at the top (I sometimes hit the button that opens the lid instead!). The power switch does not click off when you remove the kettle from the base (like my last kettle did) so if it is boiling and you pour your water and put it back on the base it is still on and will boil again until the steam shuts it off. I would certainly recommend this kettle to anyone!
