OK so I needed a really big teakettle. I love FRESH brewed iced tea. The store bought stuff is so expensive,so I make it myself the way I like it for penny's a batch instead of $$ a bottle. This is the biggest teakettle I have seen that has a whistle. It is easy to fill and clean. It came with an infuser and that was nice.
I wanted a 7+ quart whistling kettle that didn't cost an arm and a leg. This was the only one I found on the internet from a reliable merchant that met all of those requirements. I am generally happy with it because it serves my needs on a daily basis but I am disappointed in the amount of rust that has developed on primarily the outside and a bit on the inside in just the three weeks that I've had it. By the way, it takes approximately 30 minutes to boil a full pot on a gas "power" burner.
