When the time came for me to get a tea kettle, this was the one I looked for. I grew up with this one in the house, and it's just as great for my needs. Ok, being single, 3.5 quarts may be a bit bigger then I normally use, but I just add as much water as I need and set it on the stove. The water heats quickly. Steam sets off a whistle in the spout, and it can be heard with ease in any part of the house.
I looked at other Revere kettles, but found their handles and spout openers to be rather flimsy. Not so, here. This kettle will last for quite awhile.
As always, Revere has made a wonderful product. It's so easy, even this bachelor has no problem heating water.
I grew up with it. I bought it as an adult several times.
I just bought one again in late 2009 to replace one I dropped
by accident and broke the trigger.
The new one was definitely of cheaper manufacturing. The metal
seemed thinner. Reading the box I notice that they now produce
it in China. Nothing wrong w/ China, but the manufacturing of
this tea kettle sucked. Within a week this new Revere Teakettle
started leaking along the bottom rim joint.
Contacting customer service a Revere's website resulted in zero response.
Too bad. It's a great design, but doesn't work
Copper is basically the best conducting material available. The copper bottom makes heating up a few cups of water a breeze, which is nice when I'm in a bit of a rush in the morning. The downside is that because it's priced at about 20 bucks, something had to be forfeited.
When you pick it up, it's easy to see what it is. The stainless steel is a very thin, fragile, metal. Although the one handed mechanism is kind of handy for pouring, the handle can get a little hot if you're not used to it.
All in all, it's a safe buy, but not a best (or must) buy. There are better kettles out there, but I got what I expected and it works great for what I use it for.
It wasn't for my father, there were three main reasons why, they are as follows:
1. The flip up whistling cap did not create a good seal with the spout. This caused the kettle to take an inordinate amount of time to come to a boil. When it did boil, it steamed out the spout and made little or no whistling sound, rendering it dangerous to use for fear of boiling over.
2. The trigger that controls the flip up whistle cap is at an odd
angle, in relation to the gripping handle. A person with small or weak hands can't hold the pot and pull the trigger with one hand, forcing the use of two hands to do the job. Besides being inconvenient it is dangerous. The two hand process could scald a person.
3. The size and weight of the 3 ½ Qt. kettle when even half way full is too heavy and unwieldy for people with weak hands or arthritis. Once again this makes the product dangerous to use for these folks.
I ended up getting the 2 ½ Qt. model from a local hardware store. This model has a differently designed handle/spout/flip up whistle cap then the 3 ½ Qt. model. The 2 ½ Qt. model is perfect for my fathers purposes.
and it's made in CHINA - not the USA as the new corporate conglomerate wants
you to think. (the original "Revere Ware" company ceased US production years
ago and only the "brand name" is now owned by World Kitchen, LLC. 2006)
Besides being 'burned' by this faux-patriotism, you will likely be actually burned
by the incredibly bad design of the dinky phenolic-resin lid actuator as the tender
back of your fingers contact the boiling-hot steel top! (maybe only tiny chinese
underage olympic hands fit properly...?)
The single fill/pour hole is only ~1.25" diameter and the lid will only open ~45 deg.
relative to horizontal - so good luck filling this from either a filtered fridge dispenser
or poured from another container. Also, the spring-loaded lid will not remain in an
open position - which prevents the pot from thoroughly drying inside.
Amazon has other, better choices - browse on! (we purchased this from Amazon
and are returning it. [3.5 qt model #3535017])
