Really nice tea kettle. It looks great in my kitchen. I am a tea drinker especially during the winter. having a nice kettle is important to me and it was time to retire my old one. I love silicone rubber on the handle. No more having to grab a towel or hot pad in order to pour the water. The handle is pretty much what won me over about this kettle. I also love the heat stopper plug. It does seem to help keep the water hot longer. I also like the stationary handle, my old one was the kind that flopped over, got a few burned fingers from the old one. I don't see getting any more burns now.
I received this free but am not required to write a review, but I decided I should let people know about my experience with it.
