I had read that the whistle doesn't work (agreed- it doesn't) but, I didn't care much b/c I never used the whistle on my old teapot. I'm usually doing other things in the kitchen so when I see the steam form, use this to remove the pot from the stove.
The WORST part of this pot however, is that the top over the spout MELTED. Yep- completely melted and looks like burnt plastic running off of the tip. Being that this is a teapot, intended to be on a stove, heating boiling water, it's very unclear to me how you would choose a plastic material with lower melting temperature. My old teapot lasted 12 years. This one hasn't even made it 2 months.
I bought this pot for my mother and she loved it. It worked well and looked beautiful enough to keep on the stove as decoration. However, I assumed that the pot would whistle. Most tea kettles do; I thought that was the whole point of having a tea kettle, for the whistle to tell you when it's done, otherwise you would just use a regular pot. But it's not the manufacturer's fault, it's my fault for not looking closely at the reviews.
The problem is that my mother likes to just set the pot on the stove and do work around the house or get some work done from home at the computer while it gets to a boil, and a few days ago she totally forgot about it. She was getting some work done and it sat on the stove for over an hour with no whistle to remind her about it and the pot just... started melting. All the water evaporated and since the fire had nothing left to heat up, it attacked the pot. We've only had it a couple weeks so it's pretty disappointing. But once again, I don't blame the manufacturer, seller, or even my mother, it's my fault for not paying attention to the reviews.
Don't let this deter you if you want this tea kettle, though. It's very pretty, and gets the job done. If you don't mind that it does not have a whistle, this is a good pot. Just be careful letting forgetful people use it.
I've been using mine for three months now, and love it! It's just the right size for my small stove. Since the kettle lives on the stove top, it has to fit. I had to return another kettle because it was too big.
When I boil water I turn the burner to high, but I remove it from the burner as soon as the water boils. I haven't had anything melt or even come close. The handle stays cool if it is left in the upright position, and is quite comfortable to hold.
The lid is easy to take off and put on if you pay attention to the position of the little knob on the rim. It's there to hold the lid in place.
The only rust I've seen is a little bit on the screw holding the lid's knob handle in place. Not a big deal for me.
The only real criticism I have about these tea kettles is that the colors are not true to what's shown on the web page. I first ordered the yellow one, but it was a pale lemony yellow, not a bright sunny yellow (which I wanted). I next ordered an orange one, but the color was rather anemic. Fortunately, Amazon took them back with no problem. I finally ordered a red one. It's not the same color, either, but mine is a deeper, richer red which I like just fine.
So I've seen and used three of these tea kettles, and they were all in excellent condition and did exactly what they were supposed to do.
By the way, ANY tea kettle will melt if you leave it on the stove and forget about it. That is not an indication of the kettle's quality, it's an indication of user error.
UPDATE: during the first week, some of the orange enamel chipped off the edge of the lid and settled in the kettle. Good thing I saw it when I was refilling it. We might have drunk some tiny enamel chips before I saw it, though. That's not safe construction for something directly used in food/drink preparation. And like others, we always have to use a hot pad when gripping the handle. Didn't realize it was gonna be that impractical.
