Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the item, but cannot find replacement parts This kettle was in use daily, until I accidentally melted the bottom of it on the stove... I have searched the web extensively trying to find a replacement base and cannot. I do not wish to throw the pot away, but it is useless without the base. I wish the parts were readily available ANYWHERE! If anybody knows how to get the base replaced, I sure would appreciate them sharing the info with me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing Initially worked great - boils water quickly. However, the button you press to open the lid is defective and the lid no longer closes AT ALL! Still boils water, but wastes energy because the automatic shut off also does not work anymore. Disappointing. Purchased this hoping it would be durable and last a long time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Boils quickly, auto shutoff switch failed This has lasted us three years but in the past 9 months the auto shutoff has not worked. We can't find parts and can no longer use it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Power switch malfunction This kettle boils water quickly - which is great. However, because of a flaw in the power switch, I'm unable to turn this device on and off. Since there is no way to fix the switch in house, I'm stuck having to buy a new kettle, which is wasteful. I recommend purchasing a product with better quality parts so you don't end up with a broken appliance taking up your counter space.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Like the features but off switch & lid malfunction I bought this kettle 20 months ago, very pleased with it first year: Speed of heating heat resistant handle, fairly small footprint of the base and the thumb triggered lid opener.Then the lid gradually refused to stay closed, even when pushed down, so steam escapes at top. In last two months, it no longer switchs off if picked up when still heating. Is the switch wearing out ? If I forget to manually turn it off will it boil dry and be a fire hazard?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not durable We did not use this very long until the switch stopped working on the bottom, AND the lid stopped staying closed on top! Truly disappointed in apparent decline in quality of Black & Decker products.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good for four years but now leaking We have enjoyed this kettle for four years with no problems at all but it just started to leak at the base. Sad. I still have the booklet and receipt but I see there is only a two year warranty so I guess we are stuck. Can you help Black and Decker?
