About Quick Kettle
The Quick Kettle claims it is a whistling kettle to alert you when water is boiling in the microwave. They say you will have the perfect cup of tea or other hot beverage in just minutes.
Quick Kettle is sold by a company called Allstar Products Group that's based out of Hawthorne, NY. There is also no BBB-accreditation or rating available on the company.
How the Quick Kettle Works
Quick Kettle looks like a tea kettle made of glass or clear plastic with a blue top, handle, and spout. They state it has increment lines on the side for easy measuring and is dishwasher-safe. There is very little information on how Quick Kettle works. It seems you put in the microwave, and the language seems to suggest it will whistle when it is boiling, like a standard teapot.
It claims Quick Kettle will heat up your favorite beverages in an “instant”, but goes on to say you will have a perfect cup of tea in 2-3 minutes. It also says you can get hot water quicker than a stove.
Quick Kettle touts its cover eliminates boil over and spills, and that the silicon handle is always cool to the touch. It claims you can use Quick Kettle for loose leaf teas, coffee, hot chocolate, soup, noodles, and more.
It adds that Quick Kettle is an excellent solution for dorms, offices, or other small areas “stovetop access” but provides no further details.
Each Quick Kettle order comes with:
- Quick Kettle
- One “free” Quick Kettle (extra P & H)
Quick Kettle Pricing, Shipping, and Returns
Quick Kettle says it’s available for $10 plus $7.95 P & H for one, but they automatically add a second Quick Kettle “free” at the time of purchase and charge you an additional $7.95 P & H for a total of $25.90 for 2 Quick Kettles (plus tax if applicable). They say to allow 2-6 weeks for your Quick Kettle to arrive. Once you have it, you have 30 days to decide if you like it or not. If you don’t, return it on your own dime and receive your initial $10 back, but not the $15.90 P & H.
Bottom Line: Is Quick Kettle a Scam?
This is one of those products that seems to be just a bunch of bells and - in this case -whistles. A cup of hot tea does not take long, especially in the microwave which already has a buzzer that sounds when ready. On top of that, it holds just 2 cups of liquid, which would only take minutes to boil on the stove. This product seems to be designed to do nothing but take your money.
