The handle, by the way, I think was probably designed by somebody who borders on genius. It's going to take you a while to get used to using the little flip latch at the end, but once your brain gets wrapped around how it works, it's just one more aspect of how slick this thing is.
One more comment--another reviewer said that when it's hot it's real easy to make it collapse and gush hot water all over the place. That's not consistent with my experience. In fact, I gave it a try. I boiled water in it then while wearing some gloves I tired to make it collapse. I succeeded, but it took some effort. This kettle will not collapse on its own. You have to push on it and I mean PUSH, to get it to collapse even when it's hot.
I already have some Sea To Summit silicone dinnerware and its fantastic. My kitchen at home has several silicon items including a collapsible strainer. This kettle is in the same quality bracket if not better than any of my silicon cookware/dinnerware/campware.
The kettle collapses to a reasonable height. My only suggestion would be for the manufacturer to figure out how to make the handle fold-able as well or perhaps even removable as the handle sticking out to the side does increase the amount of real-estate needed to store this little gem. Don't get me wrong, the handle is far from a deal breaker but a foldable/removable handle would put this thing over the top.
Boiling water is a breeze with the thin stainless steel base quickly transferring heat to the water. Even on "low" I was able to boil 20 oz of ambient temperature water (~34 degrees) in about 5 minutes.
The kettle does not whistle when the water boils (as others have pointed out), however, a keen sense of hearing will help and of course you can also get off your butt and simply look into the top of the kettle. When you see bubbles forming on the stainless bottom, its definitely hot enough for coffee!
*see my separate review on the slick drip (it was submitted before I ordered and received my slick boil, so I had no idea the kettle was so much nicer color of red.
On the good note: the kettle is almost perfect. Love the stainless steel bottom, love that it collapses easily. Love, love, love the narrow pour spout: it does NOT drip all down the side of the mug, the side of the slick drip, the side of itself, or on the counter. It pours like a dream, no other kettle has compare in my experience. I would have loved this to be designed with a whistle. The handle takes a little time to get used to, it burned me slightly a few times before I got "the feel of it". No other complaints. Buy it without hesitation if you want a portable, collapsible kettle that is a nice red silicone color. No unpleasant odors so we know it is high quality food grade silicone.
This pot would be perfect with a whistle. We tend to forget water heating on the stove if we are outside, so I usually set a timer--if I remember. Still, I'd definitely purchase this pot again as a gift for others.
I think the handle lock needs more tweaking. There is a flippy piece of plastic that wedges between the scissor handles of the pot, to keep them locked together. It's a good safety feature. It's not really intuitive, though, and takes awhile to get the hang of it. The only reason to open these handles is to fill the pot. It boils up and pours with the lid down and handles locked.
