The Proctor Silex Electric Kettle is a great little appliance. It measures approximately 9-1/6 by 5 by 7-1/3 inches. It is white in color with a blue swish on the side that allows you to see the water level.
It is simple to use: just add water, close the lid, plug it on and flip the switch. When it has reached its boiling point, it automatically turns itself off. You can then take leave it plugged in or unplug it to take it to another area.
You can heat between 1.5 cups up to a quart of water at a time. It only takes a couple of minutes to reach boiling so it is impotant to keep the kettle away from children when heating. Also, make sure the lid is down tight or hot water could spill out of the lid sides.
I keep a Proctor Silex Electric Kettle in our guest room along with a basket of teas, cocoas and biscuits. This allows guest to help themselves either before bed or in the morning.
Amazon often has this kettle on their buy 3 pay for 4 promotion, making it an even better deal.
