After researching tea kettles and reading all the reviews, I bought this one. It is probably the best tea kettle I have ever owned. It's light and the swivel handle makes it incredibly easy to use. No need for a potholder to pour. The handle doesn't get hot. Also, it looks beautiful in my modern kitchen. I love using it.

I have looked at just about every tea pot in the world. This one has a few good and bad things about it that everyone should be aware of. This is labeled as a 1.7 quart capacity, which is not true since you can't fill it up even half way. The problem is the shaft/tube that pours water out of it starts near the bottom of the pot, and obviously if you start to fill water up above the opening of the spout shaft, it will start to come right out of the spout. And then when you pour it, and tip it back, the water sloshed back and forth and comes spilling out all over, burning anyone within a few inches of it. The spout should have been near the top so that you can fill it up higher and not have a problem with pouring. The rest of the design is okay, and the handle is particurly comfortable with the wide silicon handle cover, however it's on top so you can tip very far without having to bend or lean your whole body over. The handle should be angled or placed more towards the side so you can tip it more than 90 degrees to pour. The only really great thing about this style is that the handle bends to the sides so you can have full access to the top opening. That would be fantastic to see that design on more tea pots. The handle should be on the side like a pitcher that you pour. Have you ever seen a pitcher that has a handle across the top for pouring, that would make no sense!

I love my OXO Classic Tea Kettle. It heats quickly and evenly, no hot spots. The spout is a little low, so do not fill over the opening, I had hot water splashing on the stove top! The weight and balance are great and it pours so smoothly without splashing. The whistle is gentle and not piercing. The brushed metal is low maintenance and looks wonderful on the stove.

As pretty as this tea kettle is, it is very difficult to use. The handle is too high, so you can't reach the thumb lever on the whistle cap while holding the pot by the handle. This means it requires two handed operation, and I don't always have a free hand. I wish I liked it because it's so pretty, but I'm going to have to send it back. I need a kettle that I can use one handed.

Beautiful kettle, easy to fill and the whistle, although not annoying, can be silenced easily. Fast shipping and great service from Zappos as always!

I love this tea kettle! I had a smaller one which finally needed to be replaced. I decided it was also time to upgrade, so I began searching and reading many reviews. I found that the style of most tea kettles is not at all to my taste. I prefer a classic look and a whistle. Also, the reviews on most tea kettles varied greatly, making the decision more difficult. When I found the appearance and reviews that I liked, it did not whistle. I finally found this one. It had all the features I was looking for and had solid reviews. One thing I was not overly concerned about was whether the handle got hot or not. A bonus for me is that the handle does not get hot at all and is very comfortable/soft to the hand!There can be some warmth to the handle, but it does not even get close to being too hot to touch without a mitt. Overall, this is a quality kettle. It has a solid feel to it. The lid fits securely. The handle pivots, which is another thing I prefer. Many of the kettles today have fixed handles. Being able to tilt the handle makes filling it easier. The lever for opening the spout is another solid piece and due to the design is not hot to the touch to open it. The spout pours solidly, with no spilling, dripping or sputtering. The only thing I have had to adjust to is using a larger kettle than what I had. However, I believe this is still a bit smaller than many others on the market. I highly recommend this kettle. And you can't go wrong with ordering from Zappos! As always, the item was received quickly and the entire transaction is a pleasure.
