A scintilating Pitcher

Pros:Steel design
comfortable handle

Cons:short 2' cord

The Bottom Line: overall the unit is constructed with a great operator interface and appealling design.


The Oster Stainless steel cordless electric kettle [Inspire/collection] is a very attractive model - the picture on the box doesn't come close. Out of the box it looks twice as large, with a great luster and is surprisingly light.

Designed to hold 1.5 L of water, has a warm feature and boils quickly. It surprised me the first time I used it. I sat down at work, opened an entry and as soon as I began this kettle was rolling to a boil. There isn't any op interface to signal boiling, but the roar of boiling water is loud enough to hear it sitting at a distance of 15 feet.

Safety auto-off detects dry boil conditions and secures the heat, but this does not apply to the warming feature - should dry conditions occur the warming stays on at 158 degree F - until it is manually shut off.

Instead of relying on the auto-off I simply unplugged the unit from the wall. The cord isn't very long only about two feet, but it stores under the heat element for a neat appearance. Then, I poured a hot steaming cup of water into cocoa and set the half-full unit aside to cool down. It was a cool day and the office is always set to 68-70 degrees F.

After twenty minutes I thought the water may have cooled off too much to 'fresh' my cocoa, but surprisingly the water inside the unplugged kettle remained hot - guessing from the redness/soreness of my tongue I'd say it was about 128.9 degrees.

Other features include:

concealed heat element inside a water window - indicating fill capacity 1 L to 1.5 L MAX

Firm handle with a natural feel while holding/pouring

Easy pour spout with removable fine mesh to filter calcium or loose leaf teas, etc. - I feel this particular mesh design in comparison to other kettles is the most efficient and by far the easiest to clean/replace - although some saltydogs choose not to clean their kettle my preference is a clean pitcher.

Lid release that opens the top.
