Tea kettles: electric vs. stove-top. Tell me which one to buy!

I'm looking for a tea kettle. I've had a stove-top model forever but it was recently damaged and can't be used anymore. I was looking at an electric model but I got overwhelmed with choices and the reviews seemed so all over the place.
It doesn't really matter to me which one I end up with (stove-top or electric) but the thought of having super duper hot water really fast is quite appealing, so maybe an electric kettle is the way to go? I am a bit concerned with a lot of the models I see that are plastic, because I don't want my water to taste plasticky or smell hot plastic every time I use the kettle.
So, my fellow hive, what tea kettle should I buy? $50 and under preferred, I have Amazon Prime, and am located in the US. Oh, I have a gas stove-top.
