This is a nice, small tea kettle that I bought for emergencies when my power was out. I realized I could not use my electric tea kettle and had no back up. I can pit this on my gas range, light the burner with a match, and have hot water quickly. It whistles like a big kettle, and it is cute. Fiber ware is a brand I trust.
The look of the center of this pot looks as though it has a black material down the center which is partly what attracted it to me, and it turns out it must be just a reflection of the knob on top. The pot is all silver and light in quality.
