A beautiful yet functional addition to your kitchen. Solid, heats quickly, just make sure to empty after use to prevent rusting. Enjoy.

After 3 months of use a heavy rust set inside the kettle, rusting the water during boiling. This is a steel or iron kettle - not a stainless steel. Comfortable kettle - however, the lid falls off during pouring - one has to hold it with a finger risking being scalded by a steam. If lid falls on the floor, the enamel chips off rather easily.

Love it. Great traditional styling, well made and wonderful colors to choose from. Works like its supposed to.

This is an excellent kettle. It has a classic shape, and a beautiful color. It heats plenty of water at once. The whistle is helpful. I like the heavier weight than the stainless steel kettle I used to have. A previous reviewer mentioned that the lid falls off while pouring. My experience is completely different. The lid fits very tightly. In fact, I sometimes have to work to get it loose in order to refill the kettle.

Highly disappointed. While pretty, this kettle leaks every time we use it. It is so dangerous. Also, the handle is so hot, you are not able to handle it without a towel. Far too expensive for such subpar performance.

Really disappointed. We bought this kettle to match another le creuset item we have on the stove. It looks great, and we have not had any issues with the lid (like another user) but it drips every single time we pour. This is incredibly dangerous with boiling water. We are debating whether to return it or exchange it for another one (maybe this one was defective).

This is my third (and last!) Le Creuset tea kettle over the past 12 years. The first two rusted inside in spite of the fact I never, never, never leave any water in the kettle between boils (which is ridiculous considering it is a tea kettle and meant to boil water - but it cannot have any water in it between uses seems kind of crazy!). The real problem is that the current incarnation of these tea kettles is cheap and no better than any regular old tea kettle. The first two kettles that I had were heavy and strong and beautiful (they were the syle of the demi-kettle but bigger - they don't make it anymore), but this one is lightweight and made in Thailand. Nothing against the beautiful country of Thailand, but when spending a crazy amount of money for a kettle from Le Creuset - the expectation is that it is made in France and of a certain level of quality. This kettle is neither. Do not waste your money. It is lightweight, thin and no different from any other tea kettle. When this one rusts it will be the last one I own. Next time I will save my money and buy a basic kettle from Kitchen Aid or other generic kettle.
