1.0 out of 5 stars Le Creuset Traditional Kettle, 15 Jun. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Le Creuset Traditional Kettle with Whistle, 2.1 L - Almond (Kitchen & Home)
I initially purchased the Almond Kettle, but on using it, the whistle was very weak as too much steam was escaping from the lid. I returned it and decided to look at other makes, however, none were to my liking and it had to be compatible with my induction hob. So I purchased the same kettle in black. We have only had it a few weeks and so I am not sure how it will wear with regard to the complaint of the enamel coming off inside and therefore causing rust, but up to now I couldn't be happier with my new kettle. It is wonderful. The whistle is a lovely sound and whilst I initially wanted a kettle that had a separate whistle as I thought they looked better, this whistle looks good and is very functional. It pours well, never splutters out and the handle is lovely to hold. We chose a stove top kettle as I could not find an electric kettle that looked aesthetically pleasing enough and initially wondered if it would be 'hard work'. Not at all, it is a delight to use, boils quickly and the added plus is that the water stays a lot hotter in a stove top kettle as the induction top acts like a warmer when it is turned off.

Oh no, I have just checked inside the kettle, there is rust developing inside near the spout. I had initially given this product 5 stars, but have now changed it. How very disappointing. Unfortunately the product will have to go back. Back to the drawing board.
