Overwhelming chemical odor

Reviewed by JPM from Ridgefield, CT on Monday, December 16, 2013
When heated, this kettle gives off a strong and offensive chemical odor that makes the water completely unfit for consumption. I tried heating multiple pots, some even with vinegar, but the odor did not go away. I suspect it's coming from a silicone used to seal and insulate the heating element. Too bad -- nice design and heats quickly.
