Finally!

Comments:Since the demise of cordless electric kettles made for the US market in places like Belgium, England, etc., we've been getting some pretty awful kettles made in China. The reports in on-line reviews have ranged from terrible smelling plastic with resultant terrible smelling water, to light-weight construction, poor design, and faulty connections (things falling off, kettles breaking down, etc.). For those of us who love our tea, or just wanted to boil hot water more efficiently, this was all terribly unacceptable.

When my old Russell Hobbs "Sovereign" model finally gave up the ghost about six weeks ago I began buying and then returning kettles with alarming frequency, and was becoming increasingly disheartened.

Enter the Renoir Cordless Electric Teakettle made by the Bonjour Company. It arrived today. Clean design, heavy stainless steel (believe me, heavy is a very good thing), minimal plastic but what there is of it is of good quality, a well-designed and well-made washable calcium filter, a beautiful cast steel handle that does NOT get hot when the kettle does, an exterior water gauge and, finally, a kettle that looks like a kettle, not like a jug. And not too many bells and whistles that can end up breaking and that you really don't need.

There is one minor design glitch and one confusing instruction in the accompanying manual: (1) the kettle is slightly difficult to fill from the top; (2) you can fill from the spout although the instructions say not to, but do not explain why.

That's it.

The heavy brushed stainless is divine, and the water boils quietly and fairly rapidly. And this kettle is the only one, stainless or plastic, that did not have a chemical smell right out of the box, one of the main reasons I kept returning previous kettles. I am a public health educator, and what ends up in the water we drink made in products with that awful chemical smell is something we should all think about -- and stay away from.

Since the rise of lots of crappy stuff made in China ("CSMIC"), a problem that is not limited to kettles but crosses product lines with increasing frequency, I had just about given up hope.

This product is made in China, but apparently under strict quality control guidelines and oversight by the company. Congratulations, Bonjour! Let's hope you don't blow the design with future refinements that detract from what works, and works well.

I will report back if problems develop over time but, for the moment, I highly recommend this product.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
