Yes, it's big, but I didn't think it was heavy. ***I JUST WEIGHED THIS KETTLE WHILE IT WAS FULL OF WATER AND IT ONLY WEIGHS 6 POUNDS. I can see that if you have trouble lifting a cat or bag of flour then you may have a problem here.

The craftsmanship is pure Kitchenaid. You will have no problem there. But beware that ONLY the stainless steel version is usable on glass-top stoves. The ceramic-covered versions are NOT. ***For those that don't know, you can click on this product to see what a glass-top stove/range looks like: Ceramabryte 28oz Cooktop Cleaner

The whistle is a bit screechy, but then again, you want it to alert you over the noise of the house.

The handle DOES get hot. Not burn-your-hand hot, but very warm. If you only touch the rubber part, you're fine, but you almost have to grab the whole thing to lift it and pour it safely.

I highly recommend getting the stainless steel version; it's beautiful and functional.

The Kitchenaid 2qt tea kettle is an attractive, solid-performing, and simplistic addition to my cookware. I got tired of boiling water in my small Calphalon pot that I decided to finally buy a dedicated kettle.

Sure, boiling water in a pot is fine, but have you ever forgot about the boiling water while waiting for it and it boiled dry? I'm guilty for sure. That's terrible for your pots too, not to mention a safety hazard. I wasn't sold on a stove top kettle over an electric but finally settled on the stove top.

The plastic electric kettles concerned me over leeching issues and the stainless steel electrics were very expensive. I was also worried that cleaning the electric kettle's would also be harder and really did not want one more thing in my kitchen to plug in amongst the mixer, toaster, microwave, ice cream maker, blender, etc. When Amazon's price dipped below half of what it cost elsewhere, I plunged in head first to get the stainless steel Kitchenaid kettle.

The stainless steel version, as mentioned by a previous reviewer, is safe on any stove top, including glass. This was the primary reason for me selecting the stainless, but aesthetic preference was a close second. As with any stainless steel interior pan or pot, there will be some white spots from hard water deposits, which disappear by boiling vinegar mixed with water and letting sit for about 10 minutes.

The kettle boils water quickly and the whistle starts out relatively quiet from a soft chirp to a full on, "hello I am B-O-I-L-I-N-G" whistle. The handle does NOT get hot. It can get mildly warm, but I would recommend either making sure you put the kettle on the correct-sized burner or using a slightly lower heat if having issues with a hot handle.

I have had many tea pots and most of them have been inexpensive.
I purchased this one hoping it would last longer and not
rust. I've had it for less than a month and it
is rusting already. I've been drying it out after
ever use to try to lengthen it's life.
I thought that if I spent $50 on a teapot it would last...wrong!!

This is not 18-10 stainless steel. (It may be 18-0 to 18-8; chromium % - nickel %) Also, it's made in China (what isn't these days?) so we're a bit concerned about the "heavy metals" content (lead, mercury, etc). The surface is rather extensively "brushed" and not as smooth & shiny as the product photo indicates. (a noticable amount of grey metal particulate was on the white paper towels from first cleaning prior to using) The handles & spout lid frame are cast aluminum and the 'soft' inserts are high-temp silicone compound.

KitchenAid 'branded' products are not what they used to be (again, what is these days?). Their counter-top mixers and some other products remain of significant high quality, but their tagline "For the Way It's Made." has lost it's way. (in addition to the aforementioned mixers, we also own a KitchenAid fridge, KitchenAid dishwasher, KitchenAid food-processor, KitchenAid coffee maker, etc.) (the coffee maker, by-the-way, was recalled & KitchenAid disenfranchised that entire product line)

For the rather high price this should be nothing less than 18-10 Stainless & should have a much smoother 'low-sheen' brushed appearance, if not a typical full gloss polish. (example: the Farberware Classic Tiburon here on Amazon and at half this KitchenAid price!)

(one last note: our previous KitchenAid tea pot, the red porcelain enamel version of this one (also sold here on Amazon), rusted at several areas within a week or two of light-to-normal use & a few particles of the enamel detached)

Probably will return this, unfortunately. (great style, though. if only looks were everything!)

We are so disappointed and are returning this item. We absolutely loved this kettle (beautiful, works well) but the RUST is an absolute deal breaker. We read about rust on one of the reviews but decided to take our chances anyway. I wish we listened we're sending it back.

First of all, this kettle looks great. It's designed nicely and it looks nice on the stove. I've read all of the negative reviews, which all seem to point to how hot the handle gets and how crappy the whistler is. I experienced the hot handle one time, and only once. The whistler... well, I learned my lesson from the handle incident. Let me share my experience:

Rule #1: Read the directions and follow what they say. After my handle was indeed way hot, I decided to read the directions rather than simply thinking, man all those people were right. Guess what? The directions clearly say to heat the kettle over MEDIUM HIGH heat, not over CREMATE. I was thinking I wanted that tea NOW and so I had the heat turned way up. The handle got blistering hot, no doubt. But when I lowered the heat for the next pot, and the next, guess what? No hot handle. You can easily pour with your bare hands. It gets warm, but that's because of the conductive properties of stainless - and that's also why you can't just cremate the pot. The conductivity of the metal will overheat that handle, so keep the temp at the proper range.

Rule #2: Refer to Rule #1. Keeping the water level at the proper line prevents the whistler from getting goofed up. A lot of people were also commenting that the whistler worked one time, but after they drowned it (had the water level too high when it boiled), it never worked again. I don't know about that because after the first incident of the hot handle due to not following directions. So after that I paid attention and did not overfill the pot. As to needing to remove it from heat the instant it whistles, well, I was indisposed at the moment that it whistled, and it continued whistling merrily until I was able to get there. it has not ruined the whistler.
