I bought this a little over a year ago and at 13 months it stopped heating. Bonavita did agree to replace it under warranty. However while not wanting to be without a kettle for a month, I got the Brewista 1.2L kettle. It's $89.99 on Amazon and it's better in every way. The biggest part, I don't miss the 1.7L capasity. I have found 1.2L is perfect for the wife and I. Plus, the 1.2L gives me way better pour control.
