Ordered this to replace my 3-year old terrible kettle. This one is great - I'm so relieved. Good points:
1) Handle can be picked up with a bare hand, don't need a towel or mitt most of the time 2) Button for flipping up the spout works well 3) Can pull off the lid with the same hand that holds it by the handle (for refilling even when it's hot) 4) Solid body means no glued-on bottom that can eventually fail 5) NO DRIBBLE - spout pours cleanly 6) Loud whistle 7) Steam from spout does not burn hand during pour
I'd say the only downside, depending on your point of view, is that the whistle can be a little too loud. It starts quietly and slowly builds to a mildly alarming shriek. I do not mind this because it gets me over there to shut the thing off - but could be too loud for some.
Well-designed, this thing. Hope it lasts a long time!
I like this kettle a lot. A little better each day. Here's what I like:
1. It works. No surprises. Smooth trigger action to open pouring spout.
2. No drips. None.
3. No bottom weld to corrode and collect mineral deposits. Enamel is smooth and even everywhere, and looks good.
4. Easy to maintain--clean design, and enameled outside and inside. No handle hinges to trap debris in the rivets. All surfaces are smooth, which means you can just wipe them in one swipe and it stays like new.
5. Looks good--I have white. Black enamel interior, white enamel outside.
6. Fairly small footprint on range--8" diameter, compared to 9" or so for most of them.
There was a complaint about the fill line. All kettles need fill lines--I wish my last one had had a fill line. This one has a fill line which is approx. 1-1/4" below the fill cap. I measured it once, now I eyeball it. Don't overfill, don't let gas...
I've bought two of these in the past year and a half. I liked the engineering of it. The whistler mechanism is sturdy. The handle is large enough to allow you to get the cover off and get inside to clean it without difficulty. However, the first one lasted 13 months before the enamel started flaking off... I blamed myself. Second one lasted only 3 months before the same thing has started. I'm buying a stainless steel model now, not fooling around with the colors any more. And, the stainless steel model is $10 cheaper.
