I guess I'm a little bit late writing this review LOL but I think it makes the 5 star rating that much more valid. I have literally been using this kettle nonstop for years! It whistles loud and heats a ton of water quickly. Lid says put even when upside down and the opening is big enough to fit my not-so-dainty hand inside if I need to check for scale build up. The mechanism to open the spout/stop the whistle is easy to click, placed for correctly for ready thumb access and is satisfying. Solid bottom doesn't make the thing too heavy. Brushed finish washes up like new every time with a scrubby sponge. Like I said, 5 stars.
I really like my new kettle. I'm picky when it comes to heating water for tea, or even ramen noodles. The water can't be microwaved so I have to have a kettle. Anyway, I accidentally heated my old kettle with no water in it and it warped so I had to throw it away. I got new copper canisters which are shiny hammered copper so naturally I looked for a copper kettle to match. The canisters actually don't match the kettle but its close enough. I could have gotten a shiny copper kettle but I didnt like the old fashioned style available. The color of this kettle is darker than the image but I still like it and would recommend if it's something you are attracted to you on your computer screen you should be happy with it when it arrives to your home.
I absolutely love the look of this tea kettle! It's just what I needed for our new kitchen. However, we have not used it yet as our kitchen remodel is not done.
I needed a new tea kettle and this looked like a good bet. Since using it I have been pleased with it. It's quick and lets you know when your water is boiling with it's whistle. Good buy.
