We purchased the product, Elite Platinum 1.7L Glass Cordless Electric Kettle (EKT-200) by Maxi Matic, less than 6 months ago. It was put to normal use. Yesterday, we smelt smoke coming out of the product. Today, we saw that a wire on the bottom of the kettle burned through the plastic and was clearly visible. It even melted some parts of the base. We informed the company, asked if there was a recall, and asked for a refund. They told us there was no recall on the product and denied a refund. Because it is fire hazard, we are taking the additional step of reporting the product.
