This is a fine kettle, and all the 'cons' in other reviews seem silly to me. I drink a lot of good tea, use good water, and I want a good kettle--and this one is it! (Isn't it crazy how hard you need to shop for a simple water kettle? Well, search no more.)
The PROS: 1. Solidly made: 1-piece body construction (i.e. except for spout) with no bottom seam to get messed up. 2. Heats quickly: wide bottom is smart design. 3. Easy to fill: handle moves correctly, lid correct tightness. 4. Easy to use and pour. 5. Good whistle that fits well.
About the supposed 'CONS': 1. NOT 'non-stick': The inside is simply not highly polished like the outside. Think about it: Why would a manufacturer spend extra to polish the inside or add an insanely useless non-stick coating?? (and I NEVER use anything 'non-stick'!) 2. NOT a rigid handle: Mine moves with an easy push but also stays upright, as it should. Do you want a loose handle that...
Bought this kute kettle on 3/10 from Amazon because of large number of favorable reviews. It came on time and looked really pretty. The whistle is loud enough to hear in our house. The handle stays warm, sometimes hot but not that hot to grab. Some people complained about the lid being too tight. I found it ok although i have to use a bit force to get it on and off. The internal lining seems to be a covered material. That was a less concern now because i just found a couple days ago the rims on both the kettle and the lid are severely rusted! I have taken a few picutres to show how rusted they are. If it were genuinely made of stainless steel as it claims, there is no way it rusted so badly in just two and a half months. I'm convinced that I must have received a fake one as i didn't seem to remember any review mentioned this problem.
I'll contact Amazon for either a refund or another replacement (if they can garantee the quality). Otherwise I have to look elsewhere. Amazon...
It took me two night of reviewing all the kettles on Amazon. So what do I do? I buy this kettle which at the time did not have any reviews. I am not sorry because this is a great kettle. First of all the brushed finish matches my GE Profile stove perfectly. I love the spout and it does not drip when you pour hot water in your cup. It does have a large capacity but so what just don't fill it all the way if you don't need to. When the water starts boiling you get the whistle like you would with most kettles. What's also nice is when the kettle starts to boil and steam is coming out the cover on top the cover is large enough so that the steam comes out the sides which allows you to pick up the handle without burning your hands. Another point that I don't want to forget. The inside of the kettle is a one piece mold. Along the bottom of the kettle there is no seam along the bottom edge which means that this kettle is very easy to clean. Most of your cheap kettles have a seam in...
