Update: I contacted Aroma and they sent me a free replacement (without me paying for it or shipping or anything), very good customer services. The replacement works very well, none of the problems described above occurred again, so I guess it was only an unfortunate defective unit.
First, the water level indicator window is extremely difficult to read, making it almost impossible to know if you have overfilled the kettle.
Second, the unit does not turn off automatically when you remove it from the base. This is dangerous because if you use all the liquid and return the unit to the base, it is STILL ON. Possible fire hazard.
I would not buy this item again nor could I ever recommend it. Buy a different product that is easier to read and safer to use.
Unfortunately , the kettle shown is not the same model that I purchased almost 8 years ago...The handle on the lid and grip on side handle are different.. amazon sent me a prompt indicating I purchased this in 2009...I was so desperate to find the same kettle that I almost fell for it until I noticed the slight differences including a bit less capacity on the one shown here.
Too bad, because the AWK 115S..is an amazing kettle..as I stated it has lasted almost 8 years and is used constantly on a daily basis.
I do see some 3rd party sellers asking between $50 and $110 for it..not sure I'd go that far.
A few reviewers stated this newer one is not
as good as the old one..with good reason..It's not the same kettle.
I gave the new one to my sister-in-law. I have been using the old one ever since. TWICE SINCE THEN I HAVE ACCIDENTALLY SET IT BACK ON THE BASE EMPTY WHILE ON. EACH TIME IT EMITS A SMALL POP AND DIES. BUT NOW I SET IT IN THE FREEZE FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS AND IT COMES ALIVE! NO JOKE! My belief is there is some sort of thermal breaker made of spring steel inside the kettle. When over heated it pops turning the kettle off and preventing a fire. However, the thermal breaker does not seem to reset unless it gets really cold, thus the freezer.
I know you are probably thinking I am putting you on but I swear I am not. Try it. What do you have to loose?
(And "Yes", the older model turned off automatically when lifted from the base preventing all this in the first place, but alas, nothing stays the same.)
BELOW is my original review:
I’ve owned the old version of this Aroma Pot for probably 15 years. It worked great until recently so I went to or re-order the same thing. I was dismayed to find that it had been replaced with this new version that unfortunately got a lot of negative reviews. I took a chance and ordered this pot.
The first one that arrived would not heat water. The light came on but nothing happened. I sent it back and took a chance on the second one. We’ve been using it for over a month now without any problems. It works great just like the old one. There are a couple of small drawbacks compared to the old version. As others have stated, it does not shut off when you lift it off it’s base as the old version did. Also it’s much harder to see the water level than it was on the old version. However in my estimation these are minor drawbacks. Overall I am very happy with the purchase especially considering it’s very reasonable price.
I would guess quality control is the issue with this pot as it is with so many other things from China. But given Amazons great return policy there is not much risk involved. My recommendation would be to take the leap.
1) doesn't take up much space
2) I can turn it on and forget about it
3) it does keep the water really hot for a while
4) looks attractive enough to leave out on the counter
5) not too loud, no obnoxious squeal like a stove kettle
6) lightweight and easy to carry
7) holds more than enough water- it's enough to fill up a small hot water bottle to the max and still give you a large mug of tea
There were many Aroma kettles to choose from here on Amazon. I selected this one mainly based on price. I wish I had bought a more expensive model though.
Good stuff: Well constructed, stainless steel housing, has water fill level view port, heats water quickly.
Stuff I wish it had: A retractable power cord; a lighted power switch so you can easily tell if the thing is still heating or not.; a wider and more easily viewable water level viewing port (it is narrow and next to the handle - hard to see if water is inside or not. I have to pick up the kettle to see if it's got anything in it).
Many of the more expensive Aroma kettles have the features I am missing on this one.
So I would recommend this kettle: for the money, it is a well made kettle that heats water quickly. I just wish I had spent a little more and got one with more features.
This kettle does not whistle, beep, or give off any major audible indicator that the water's done. The lever that you press to start the kettle heating does flip back up when the water's done, and that flip makes a small sound, but you have to be in the same room with the kettle in order to hear it. This is not a problem for me, but it might be for other folks.
As the water heats up, the spout of the kettle emits a fair amount of steam, so I'd be careful about where you plug the kettle in -- I wouldn't put it close to papers tacked to an office divider, photographs hanging on the wall, etc.
Some folks have complained about the lack of "features" on this kettle, but I like that it is very simple. It heats water very fast & makes it very hot. The window on the side makes it easy to see how much water is left in it. And I can't stress enough that I have used this thing nearly every day for the past 7 years, and it's still functioning at 100%.
Subpar and unable to return as I was out of town too often to hit the '30 day return' timeline...Only Amazon button alt is 'buy again'...nope. That's NOT happening.
Daily use of at least 10-12 times a day (the family drinks lots of tea). Our kitchen is very small and this guy gets bumped into and moved around all the time, so I was concerned somewhat about the flip switch being broken off - but so far so good :)
I am guilty of boiling just a cup or so of water instead of the minimum recommended amount, and the kettle has survived this daily abuse with flying colors (admittedly, I wouldn't let it boil with this minute amount of water but rather just bring to a boil and take the kettle off the warming element).
Heating is fast so I find myself using it to supplement my electric stove's efforts when needing to boil some water - be it a soup or pasta or whatever...
Never had any issues with it not turning off automatically when filled with 'normal' amount of water - provided the lid is snapped shut: my husband is guilty of lifting the lid to fill the kettle (I do it through right through the pourer :) and then leaving the lid not closed tightly (mind you, there's a good solid snap when you do it right!), then the kettle takes longer to shut itself off, understandably.
The ergonomics of it is just fine, the handle is easy to grasp, and it's easy to pour without spilling, and the looks are still quite handsome (and it's easy to clean to a satisfying shine).
Would buy it all over again - but don't anticipate the need to for a few more years.
*******Update, after one year of usage, the pot died. The heating starts up...I can see by the light...but it shuts off within a few seconds and I can't get hot water any more. I see the pot is on sale now...I wonder if $34 a year is worth it for hot water. Do I have to buy a new pot every year? I kept this one in sparkling clean condition and it useless now.
