I need hot water for tea and other assorted beverages. Like millions of others, I just wanted a well made, well designed kettle to sit on my stove top, heat the water and give a good loud whistle to let me go do something else while the water boils. This kettle sits well on my gas range, and has a whistle that I can hear from anywhere in the house. The handle tends to get warm, but not uncomfortably so. To pour, you press a button on the top of the handle and another one under the handle to close the spout again. The kettle is quite attractive in my very traditional kitchen and looks much heavier than it actually is. The metal is a little thinner (at least in the spout) than I expected, but that doesn't effect my results- a hot cup of tea. When compared to the same kettle found on other sites, this kettle at this price is a bargain! I think my tea tastes better after all....
