I boiled this kettle many times before use but even three weeks later all the tea was tasting tinny and plasticky. I lost count of the number of cups I had to remake because they smelt and tasted so tainted.
I purchased two of these, a white and a black. When I opened the black one the strap fell off in my hand. So the seller very kindly sent me a replacement but unfortunately the first time of wearing the very same happened again. Also the plastic is very hard and does not bend around the wrist very well. I guess you get what you pay for!
