As a decorative piece the tea pot is pretty. When you use it the problems begin. 1. The whistle is so low pitched and low in volume it can easily be drowned out by the refrigerator motor. 2. It says you have to clean AND dry the thing between uses. Not practical for daily use. 3. You have to use medium heat on a gas stove. Takes too long to boil. 4. The whistle only worked once even when dried as suggested. 5. Not practical for daily use. I'm returning mine.Read More
I originally bought this tea kettle on account of its appearance and finish. The color was very vibrant and looked great in my kitchen. Nonetheless, after just one year of use I was dismayed to discover that the interior was corroding. There was a dime sized spot where the nonstick finish had worn away on the interior and rusted. You'd think that a vessel made to boil water wouldn't corrode after light use.Read More
Bought this because of the colour, which is great. Kettle works fine, just the "whistle" isn't a whistle, but you get used to it.Read More

Loved the color but can't use because of the annoying whistling sound. It is just a decoration on my stove.Read More
Nice teakettle- color is vivid. Seems to be well made. Gives a low whistle, kind of sounds like a train, when boiling. Very happy with it. It looks great on the stove.Read More
Who would have thought something as simple as a tea kettle would belong on the island of misfits?! Do not waste your money, Got another one from Target for same price looks better, can turn the heat up all the way and yes it whistles!! lol waste of timeRead More
This tea kettle is a sharp addition to my kitchen decor. And I really like that I can grip the handle to pour the water right after boiling, which I couldn't do with my former tea kettle. The "whistle" is funky - sounds more like a hum - but that is no big deal in my book. I am being very careful to completely drain it and dry it upside down in the drainer after each use, because of the other reviews I have read about it rusting easily. That part is kind of a pain in the neck, but the look of it on my stove is worth the hassle. My overall review after having this tea kettle for a month is "so far so good ".Read More
