Answer:
Yes, its all plastic. The interior, and all of the places that water would ever come in contact with are all stainless steel. Note that the interior where the water is put is a smooth, continuous bowl of stainless steel. Not a seam to be found.

Answer:
Lift it. The cord is attached to the base, not the boiler.

Answer:
It is about 2 feet 11 inches. I have my pot close to the outlet and the great thing is that at the base of the holder you can wrap the cord around to avoid loose cord. I love that feature. The product is fantastic. It hold a lot of water, the inside is stainless steel and the product is exactly as advertised and more… see more It is about 2 feet 11 inches.

Answer:
No. You do not want that anyway, since it will be plastic touching the water. Unless they make it of glass, but then price will go up.

Answer:
I was concerned about this, too, when I read comments about it. But having inspected and used the kettle, I think it is not a problem. The hole in the stainless steel interior of the pot is about half an inch below the rim, on the inside opposite the spout, where the top of the handle connects to the body. It is a vent… see more I was concerned about this, too, when I read comments about it. But having inspected and used the kettle, I think it is not a problem. The hole in the stainless steel interior of the pot is about half an inch below the rim, on the inside opposite the spout, where the top of the handle connects to the body. It is a vent through which steam passes to activate the auto-off feature. The Chef's Choice kettle where I work apparently has the same mechanism, but that pot has a tall tube that rises inside the pot to gather steam from approximately the same location -- a nightmare for cleaning, since it is constantly surrounded by boiling water. On the Secura kettle, plastic is visible through the hole in the thin stainless steel liner, but there is no way in any normal use that water in the pot could touch the plastic and return through the hole to mix with the water in the kettle; instead, any water passing through the hole or condensing on the plastic would run down between the inner metal lining and the outer plastic shell to the base, as it is designed to do. In fact, the user's guide notes that you may see drops of water on the base after boiling, and the base is designed to catch and hold this condensation. You would have to fill the pot much too full for the water level to reach even close to the hole; far above the "maximum" line stamped on the pot, and so full that it would be hard to move without sloshing over the rim. Even at the maximum fill level, you would have to tip the pot far backwards (towards the handle) to get water anywhere near the hole. And again, if any did go in, it would run down between the inner and outer wall and out the bottom, without mixing with the kettle's contents. There is no way to clean inside this area, but I don't think it will ever need cleaning. I don't think this area should ever accumulate any scale, since the only moisture entering normally is vapor (which cannot carry dissolved salts), and since you are using the kettle only for water, there is nothing organic in there for mold or bacteria to live on. I have only had this kettle for a week or so, so maybe I will be proved wrong -- but I really don't think this is anything to worry about. see less I was concerned about this, too, when I read comments about it.

Answer:
Yes. You can just pick it up and it will shut off or flip the switch back.

Answer:
The outside is cold. I boiled the water when I want to make some tea, and it'll switch off once the water boiled. There is no indicator to show the temperature, but the purpose of this kind of kettle is to boil fast instead of holding temperature for a long time.
