I received this teapot about 6 weeks ago and it looks the same as it did out of the box - and I don't see it getting scratch easily even with the high shine. I order this one to replace a le creuset that was not big bottomed enough to cover my stove's power burner. This one does the trick. It hold a lot more water than my previous teakettle so that's a good thing. The copper color does not match my copper pots on the pot rack hanging above but I've been looking a while with no success. Certainly lighter weight than my old caste iron.
I waited to review these to have time to use these a lot. I cook most days/nights and wanted new pans that made the whole job easier. These have fit the bill. As a bonus, the cleanup is very quick. I only use wooden spoons to help protect the finish. I have not had any of the negative effects others mentioned. You can't place these in the oven above 350 but I only use these on the cooktop. If you live on a budget and want solid performance, these are for you.
