I bought this to replace an old one that was impossible to clean and the handle became as hot as the pot itself. This one is a dream by comparison, and is so easy to handle. I have arthritis in my hands which makes pouring pots of water difficult but this one is easy to empty completely. And it was comparatively inexpensive. I would definitely recommend it.
I heated up a pot of water and when I was picking the kettle up to pour the water in a mug, the entire handle fell off! I have a 17 month old son that was standing near me seconds before the handle fell off, the kettle crashed down onto the range, and scalding hot water went everywhere! I got splashed by the hot water but luckily wasn't hurt too badly. I definitely would not recommed this product.

When I got the box, I thought it was kind of small and light for a teakettle to be in it. When I opened it, I realized it was quite small and light for a teakettle to be in it, but this little thing does the job. It's quite attractive in design and it does the job.

I like my new tea pot. The first time I used it, it didn't whistle, then I realized the lid wasn't pressed down tight causing air to escape. After that I made sure the lid was on tight and there was no problem. Also, for a good whistle, it should be filled more then half way with water. With this teapot, to pour water out you have to remove the spout cover, this works fine if you don't push it on too tight before boiling. All in all, it looks nice and works good.
I actually own an identical kettle for 5+ years and the poor thing was used so much it finally broke. And for all of it's abuse, it always looked good and handled well. I like the simple look and I didn't want to spend the extra money for the fancier kettles. This on is used every day and still is shinny and nice.
