I have this tea kettle now for 2 days. I drink a lot of tea, so I use the kettle constantly. I like the look of the kettle, and I love the price. This unit is very sturdy, and on my induction hot plate, it heats very quickly. I have only one beef with the unit; it drips during the act of pouring. Since it is "only" water, it is no big deal to me, but I know people, that for them it is a deal breaker.
