Okay, after still reading many reviews i found the one i wanted and bought it from Amazon today.
I went with the Hamilton Beach Cool Touch, here is the link, check it out.
Pretty good deal too. Will be back after a few months and give you my review. :)
I'm going with steel, I can tell you why i didn't go with the glass. Basically because of the many times i have read about "leaking" that did it for me.
Everything you listed that you want in an electric tea kettle is everything i am searching for. I am leaning towards Hamilton because of the reviews on Amazon No BPA. The best comments i heard was about the NO Smell, bonus in my book. Check it out, i think im going to try it out, what the heck, it's only $27. If it doesn't work then i'm only out $27 basically.
I also was thinking of Chef's choice, which gets really high reviews.
And another choice is Amora
Look forward to hearing what you chose, good luck
