We have this kettle at our house, and never noticed a terrible smell at all. However, we're on our second one, because of a different design flaw - the lid is 2 pieces of plastic, and ours eventually delaminated shortly before the hinge broke. This was after more than a year of daily use; the Capresso people gave us a discount on a replacement pot. It works well, and quickly, for our daily coffee brewing.
