Product description and features
This whistling kettle comes with a colorful porcelain exterior. It is easy to clean and the kettle will most certainly look good in your kitchen.
As you would expect, when the water reaches the boiling temperature, it will begin to whistle. It also has a convenient spout lever which is placed conveniently at your fingertips.
The size of the kettle is 1.5 quarts. The removable lid makes it very easy to fill the unit. The dimensions of the unit are 8” x 8” x 8.2”. The weight of the unit is 2.8 pounds. This whistling kettle is good for when your family or friends come over and you need to prepare them cups of hot tea or make instant soup for them. As long as you don’t have a lot of friends or a large family. This unit is really for small and limited usage. If you use it for that purpose, then it will probably work for you just fine.
The unit comes with a number of attractive features. It is also pretty affordable. This whistling kettle is not only good for day-to-day use but it can also be used as a backup kettle or even given as a gift to someone else. If you plan to use it on a daily basis, you can rest assured that this kettle will save you both time and effort.
This unit has a very nice look, feel, and touch to it. When in use, the handle stays relatively cool, so it should be easy for just about anyone to pick it up. However, some people do complain that they get burned by the steam when they are pouring the contents into a cup. It is certainly an issue the manufacturers have to fix if they haven’t done so already by the time of this review.
• Elegantly carved handle – This unit is very nice looking, especially with its attractive curved handle.
• Easy to clean and handle – The kettle can be cleaned very easily and can also be handled quite easily. The lid can be removed so the unit can be filled.
• Quick heat transfer – You can pour liquids very easily and this unit can be used on a daily basis.
• Room for improvement in functionality – There is room to improve the functionality of the kettle. The whistle efficiency should be definitely be enhanced.
• Poor enamel coating – After using for a few days, the enamel coating can crack and become damaged.
This whistling kettle is fairly inexpensive for such an attractive unit. The kettle is designed to be used on a daily basis, but its protective coating can begin to wear down if it is not used carefully. I’m also not pleased with how the handle is set up. It is far too easy for steam to burn you while you are pouring the contents of this kettle into a cup. This kettle would be amazing if only it underwent a few design tweaks. Otherwise, I’d say that this kettle is more style than substance.
