Questions & Answers

What type of material is used to make the pot's interior?

Plastic is used on the interior, but stainless steel is used on the bottom. Overall, I am very pleased with how well it works. Over the past five years, we have had an older model that works perfectly.

Are there other people who find it difficult to remove There does not seem to be any way to remove the filter from my brand new Bodum. Can you tell me what I need to do next?

If you want to remove it, you can. When I discovered the same problem I thought to myself, "great, I can't clean it.". There is no way to remove the lid or filter". A major problem with the lid is that it does not. You will be able to pop it out if you pull a little harder than you are comfortable with. It will just pop out. You think you're going to break it, but you're going to break nothing. Try to heat the water so that it is all warm and will give Even though it is After that, use the thumb and index finger to pinch. You should wiggle it a bit and then pull it up directly. Since nothing is latching the two parts together, there's no chance of them breaking. However, if you pull straight up, a small holder hook might eventually break if you do it at an angle. There is no escaping the fact that this is a horrible A better version of Bodum Ibis was available in the past.

Does it have a simple clean-up process? If the lid is hard to remove and the inside can't be filled, what would be the best method to clean it I based my analysis on ?

The lid opens on a hinge, which is a good design feature. Scales may build up over time. If this happens, you can swish some vinegar around and it will disappear Just like in any kettle, you fill it with water.

The music is loud, isn't it?

In order to turn on the kettle, I click the button on the top of the handle after filling it with water (34 oz). A little over 5 minutes after the water has begun to simmer, the water begins to boil. When the kettle has boiled for some time, it automatically switches It makes two soft clicks and a faint hissing sound while it heats the water. I don't find the sounds offensive. Using the kettle for boiling water when making French press coffee, Jello, tea, etc., and rinsing the sink is my favorite thing to do. You cannot compare a whistling tea kettle perched on your stove with anything else! If a baby is sleeping, this kettle will not wake her up.

Selected User Reviews For Bodum Bistro Electric Water Kettle, 17 Ounce, Black

It is unsafe
3/5

A small tea kettle like this has several qualities I like. With its large size and fast boil capabilities, it makes tea for one very effectively. I've noticed no plastic flavor or odor, and the water barely takes longer than three minutes. There are two reasons for the one star review the switch is defective and the auto-return system is inoperative There is no way to shut off the computer. All water you put in it will boil away and the element will stay hot for as long as you need it. I believe this is a safety issue of the highest order. Furthermore, the switch must be manually reset to the off position after pouring out the water before you can put the kettle back on its Whenever the unit is removed from the base, the unit should automatically reset as is the case with every electric tea kettle I have This product is defective, so the bottom line is that it's not fit for purpose.

The timer stopped working after a few months with burning smell after it had been occasionally used
3/5

Upon removing the wire connected to the heating coil, I discovered one of the ends of the wire had burned and begun to fray. When I contacted Bodum customer service, nobody answered, but they sent me an email to ask how I would rate their customer support. As I looked at it closer, I realized this product was poorly made. You should be careful if you already bought it. If you have, please keep it away from fires.

There is a fire hazard
3/5

MAKE SURE YOU ARE A SAFE BUYER! I am updating There is a fire hazard here! Using this pitcher, I've been able to heat water easily. There was a time when I noticed that it would not turn off! It sounds like water in it, so I pour it over my coffee, open the lid, and place the lid and the base back on the machine. A kettle's power switch typically clicks when the water finishes boiling, which I consider a good sign. However, I thought the kettle was off until I came home to find it had been on for over eight hours! This is actually a very strange product to be legal at that point in time. How is it possible that a switch can fail so easily that the heating coil is on for hours without a fail-safe According to an inspection of the kettle that is turned on, the mechanical switch that turns it on is problematic and does not shut it off automatically as it should. As a result, I have to ensure the kettle is not stored on its base or it will be turned on when I go to use it. It is disturbing to see that the power light is not on while the kettle is powering on in the I am lucky enough to have this kettle on an open counter in my kitchen, so after it had been on for a day, there was no danger nearby. As a result, I am hopeful that Bodum will track this feedback and fix the issue because this represents a significant safety risk for their consumers. I reviewed the original version of this book It has been a pleasure using this kettle. I like how simple it is to use and how quickly it heats water. I have been using it for a month now and I'm very pleased with it. I have a history of finding bodum products to be high quality, and this kettle was no different.

It's been less than six weeks since I stopped working! I took this for my sore hands because it is the perfect size and weight
3/5

I have noticed that in the last two weeks (I got it in September), no matter how many times I turn it on, it fails to respond In 10 seconds, the button is clicked off. This is my second visit to this location and I see I'm 10 days late in returning it. BODUM should be commended for making such a great product.

There are three units in this section
3/5

EVEN THE FAILURE OF ALL IS NOT ENOUGH! BUY THIS ITEM BUT DO NOT PURCHASE IT! Please do not purchase. This is the third one I have ordered due to the way it looks. There is a sudden and inexplicable stoppage in each of them! It is not fair that Bodum refuses to give me a credit because I don't want a fourth unit that is only going to fail. This company sells a bad product and is a bad company, so.

The design is poor and flimsy
3/5

The kettle I bought disappointed me at first glance. I usually like Bodum products and own several of them. A crack in the handle causes water to leak. To clean the lid, it is not easy to remove. Sadly, today, the lid finally broke because of a flimsy plastic pin for the hinge- In order to stay sturdy, the product was designed too small. The item has been with me for less than a year, and already I'll have to throw it out. Bodum products will not be purchased in the future by me.

The perfect kettle for traveling or taking with you
5/5

Purchasing this for our vacation because hotels do not have hot water for tea, and if you use the in-room tea maker, it does not work as well as the one we bought It takes a long time for your room coffee maker to heat up water, so your tea tastes bad. As such, I use it also when I go to book club meetings at the library and should bring my own kettle along. It is this that I find so appealing The water heats up very fast with this lightweight device. You don't have to contend with the cord since the kettle is separate from its base. Unlike most others, it's small and doesn't take up a lot of space. I really like the way it looks, it's so sleek. A cup of tea or coffee can be heated up in less than a minute with this device. Although it has been through a lot of travel and abuse, it still works beautifully. I'm going to list a couple negatives here It might be necessary to add an extension cord to the cord because it is so short. It is worth keeping an eye on. There are times when it doesn't realize that the water is boiling and keeps running. You may not have enough capacity to boil water for an entire household if you're boiling more than one person If you travel often or have a small space, this pot would be a perfect fit. It would be a nice gift for a college student or someone with a.

This is a great kettle
5/5

owned this awesome kettle for 3 years and feel obligated to write and defend it in some way. The electric kettle you sent me is awesome! A glass interior and variable temperature control lets you choose what type of tea or coffee you want. It seems that numerous people here have mention the issue of rusting, which makes me wonder if the quality of the water or hardness/softness have anything to do with it? As a side note, I live in Memphis and our water tends to be fairly hard. As a result, we love the kettle and several friends have purchased one due to its performance and clean design.
