As usual, Xiaomi is done beautifully and at the same time minimalist. I think many will like the simplicity of the teapot. White, cylindrical, neat with Mijia logo. The body is made of high quality plastic, and the inside of the kettle is completely metal. It is pleasant to the touch and easy to clean. Due to the large radius of the lid, the hand can easily fit into the inside of the kettle, which makes cleaning easier.
The button for opening the lid is located on the handle. And under the handle there is a power-on trigger. The teapot together with the stand seem to be one whole, since the stand is also white. In general, it looks very stylish, I think the kettle will fit into any kitchen.
More about the kettle
Let me remind you that this model is simple and cannot be controlled through the application. The kettle itself is light, as is the stand from it. It has a cool mechanism that will prevent the kettle from turning on until there is water in it.
The kettle is quite noisy, especially if it is full. And if we talk about the smell, then there is no smell of rubber, there is no plastic. It will not be possible to burn yourself against it, since after boiling it is hot only inside, and the outside of the body remains warm.
The kettle lands on the stand with little or no sound. There are rubber feet on the back of the stand, which create resistance to sliding on the surface, but the kettle still moves due to its light weight.
I am glad that the material of the case is not easily soiled, but the plastic is matte. For a long time of operation, the kettle has remained the same white. The wire for may seem short, the length is 75 cm. Be sure to take this into account, otherwise you will have to use an extension cord.
After boiling, the kettle turns off automatically. The kettle fits one and a half liters of water, and it boils in 4-5 minutes, which is quite fast. After turning on the kettle, a red indicator on the button lights up.
The lid of the kettle is fixed in three positions:
- Completely closed
- After pressing the button, it opens halfway (half open)
- Fully open (this position can only be brought with the help of hands)
It seems to me that the kettle is opened halfway in order to protect it from splashing hot droplets that accumulate on the lid after boiling. And thus this probability was minimized.
- No unpleasant odor
- All-metal flask
- Pleasant to the touch
- Inside stainless steel
- Boil quickly
- Heat saving
- It does not open completely from the button, so you have to bring it up with your hand (for me this is not a minus, explained above)
- No water level indicator
- Not quiet, but not outright noisy
- Asian fork
The Xiaomi Mi Electric Kettle is a really good kettle, yes, it has drawbacks, but they are minor. Personally, he made me very happy with its affordable price and quality. Kettles of this level from competitors Xiaomi will definitely cost more.
