Chefs Choice Cordless 677

Pros
  • Attractive design
  • Boils quickly
  • Detachable base
  • Water gauge
  • Automatic shut-off feature
Cons
  • Exterior gets hot
  • Some report an unpleasant odor while heating
  • Durability issues

Although most reviewers say the Chef's Choice Cordless 677 boils quickly and is easy to use, some say the stainless-steel exterior gets too hot. Users appreciate the concealed heating element, which prevents mineral buildup. The Chef's Choice Cordless 677 heats water to boiling temperatures in just under five minutes: slower than some electric kettles, but significantly faster than stovetop kettles. Although the Chef's Choice kettle looks nice, a plastic kettle like the Bodum Ibis Electric Tea Kettle (*Est. $50) or the Capresso H2O Plus (*Est. $80) , made from heat-resistant glass, won't get as hot. The Chef's Choice Cordless 677 boasts a 7-cup capacity and an automatic shut-off feature. It's backed by a one-year limited warranty.

User review sites like Amazon.com, Cooking.com, Epinions.com and RachaelRayStore.com provide the most detailed and insightful reviews of the Chef's Choice Cordless 677.
