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...
Great quirky kettle
I read the bad reviews after I had bought my kettle, at a reduced price online, so was expecting the worst. Actually, I love this kettle which I've now had for about a month and use it on an electric stove daily. At first the whistle didn't work, but I found there was a small screw inside the spout lid which enabled the whistle once I adjusted it. It now sounds like a muted steam train when it boils - lovely sound and is plenty loud enough. As far as the pouring goes, I've had no issues with spilling as stated in other reviews - just open the s...pout with the button and pour..... The main lid is a tight fit, so I generally fill with water through the spout. Time will tell with regard to any pitting, but so far so good - our water is fairly soft so maybe the issue is the water hardness?? I rinse it out about once a week, and have had no issues with the water smelling or tasting weird either. Will update this review if I find any issues, but so far, it's all good! Whistle sound and traditional kettle appearance. None so far.
