I find it really surprising how much I am enjoying owning this kettle:
It is just what it appears to be, a glass electric kettle. When the water is at a full boil it is actually more dramatic than this picture shows. Like all modern electric kettles, you lift it off its base, leaving the cord and such behind, to pour. It's faster than the stove, won't boil dry, and it's fun to watch. Who knew?
I got mine at Canadian Tire. It wasn't even the most expensive kettle there.
