    Great kettle, does the job


    I've had this kettle for over four years now. It does everything you want a kettle to do; the whistle works (and is quite loud!), it pours well, the paint has remained in good condition despite being used everyday on my gas stove. I am surprised at the negative reviews; I haven't had any issues with flakey bits or anything. It's been a good kettle, but admittedly I got it for $20 brand new from an op shop, so maybe I had low expectations...

    Flakey Bits


    I kept wondering what the white flakey bits were in the bottom of my kettle...........hmmmmmmmm the coating has seemingly boiled off over time. You have to be extremely careful about the spout too as it splutters everywhere when pouring. The whistle is extremely loud too. Won't be purchasing Circulon products again.

    wow full whistle


    I bought with doubts about the plastic content, however, who would have know the whistle was so pathetic. Of course I should have reviewed it first because I've also paid the top price for it at $84.95. It is very disappointing as my previous Circulon kettle, which was all steel, served me well for 8 years.

    Worst kettle ever?


    Avoid avoid avoid! The whistle is like a lonely train toooting in the distance. I've boiled this dry many times because I haven't heard it. Plastic parts including the whistle have melted. It sprays boiling water and steam everywhere when pouring, and the handle came apart from the body after less than a year. A dangerous chunk o junk.

    Spilling spout


    This is a nicely made and finished kettle but the spout spills as you are filling the cup. Even when poured very carefully. It would cause a very nasty burn if someone is holding the cup. the splatter on a certain angle ( when cup is nearly full) is quite wide spread.
    The look and the one piece cast base. Should not rust in the corners like my last two kettled

    Almost every design mistake possible to make is executed here! Scalded hand/s is just one issue. The water sprays out when pouring and generally covers the bench top. The whistle sound is too quiet and fails altogether after a few months of use. This is the third kettle we've had, the first was replaced under warranty (whistle failure) the second we just gave up on, it too had whistle failure. This third kettle was a gift and is now two months old and has just had the whistle fail completely. Exposed stainless parts also rust quite readily and the risk of scalding is ever present due to very poor spout design. For the money it is just rubbish. A $12.00 one from Big W is far superior.

    Thanks, I'll be buying another brand after reading this review!

    Bad taste and smell of water


    Purchased this kettle from myer couple months ago, just searched on net to find same problem, water smells and tastes really awful after boiled. Hope not drinking any bad chemicals. Will follow up returning it and going back to the electric kettle. It was not a cheap kettle approx $70 and don't understand this but really is bad. Resorted to also using microwave for hot water.
    Looks good trying to save on power using gas
    Bad water smell and bad tasting water when boiled

    Melting spout cover


    Whistle sound is weird but fine, quite got used to it.
    The spout cover melted as the gas stove flame must have been coming up the edge a bit This is insane design to have a kettle that will be sitting on top of a flame with parts that melt when close to flame. Only had it 4 days.
    A good sized volume.
    A melting spout cover is a disastrous design.

    Sounds is a bit disturbing


    I have now had this kettle for a few months and going OK so far. It is easy to clean.

    The sound the whistler makes is really weird all of my guests comment about it. The top that goes in also seems to make a weird bubbling sound and has some surface rust on it( easy to remove with alfoil rubing)
    Silicon handles, mean no need to use pot holder
    Whistling sound


    Whistling Stove-top Kettle


    A well-made product but terrible design. It can be quite dangerous to use as the spout sits far too high and is not set at a good angle, therefore steam can and does burn your hands. Also the water level mark cannot be seen when when filling the kettle so there should be a see-through part so one doesn't have to 'guess' the amount that goes in.
    Looks reasonable
    Dangerous to use and the whistle sounds more like the fog horn on the Queen Mary.
