Have had this kettle for nearly a year now and it works really well, boils water, pours nicely, has a detachable whistle, can be filled via the spout to save removing the lid, has a comfy handle and seems well balanced.
The whistle spends most of the time in the drawer because the Aga boils the kettle really fast. The whistle is useful for when the Aga is cooling down (we switch ours off over night from 6pm but you can still get the kettle to boil even as late as midnight but it takes a while so the whistle is useful then).
Still looks good after a year and I'm not great at cleaning and polishing stuff.
It is expensive but it seems very well made, looks good and hopefully will last for a good few years to come.
