COSORI CO172-EK is electric kettle with 1.8 quart (1.7 liter) capacity. It’s equipped with 1500 watt heating element.
1500 watt power is enough to heat up water fast but with that being said most electric kettles with similar capacity have similar power so it’s not like COSORI CO172-EK stands out among the competition. Still if performs well.
Some consumers (albeit they are minority) have had issues with weird smell/taste so perhaps boiling water + vinegar mixture and pouring it out a couple times might be a good idea before starting using the kettle. Very few reported this issue so it’s probably not something you should worry about.
