It's a Black and Decker. It was around $20-$25.

This is the one I'm thinking of getting at Bed Bath. I have a coupon so it will be 20% less

I'm sure that would be fine but you should be able to get one for around $20-$25. Even with the discount, that will cost you $40.

I know, I wish I could find something cheaper, but Bed Bath doesn't seem to have anything in a lower price range that is made of stainless steel. I don't want to buy plastic.

Check out Amazon for electric kettles. Look for a cordless one.

We also use a $30 cordless electric kettle, some generic brand with a fancy name. It boils water very quickly and we use it at least twice daily. I've always purchased these kettles from either Amazon or Ebay.
Basically, we end up replacing these units every 2 or 3 years on average, not from product malfunction, but from eventual breakage due to rough handling or whatever. They also start to get gunky looking after a couple of years of daily use.
But regardless of brand or cost these kettles are pretty reliable for the most part, I don't mind replacing them every so often at these low prices....

Can you post a link to the one you have? There are so many choices on amazon it's terribly confusing.

Thanks for posting the link! The reviews on this are great, but a couple of people said they notice a plastic smell coming from the bulb inside. Have you had an issue with that?

No issue with the led accent lighting on this current unit and with the old one we threw out a few months ago.
