The handle does get too hot to touch when I use it on my alcohol stove, but I just carry a piece of tinfoil to loosely wrap around it to insulate it. Plus- my Fancy Feest (NOT FEAST) alcohol stove (Google it!) fits perfectly inside along with the Heet fuel and tinfoil wind screen. Who could ask for more?

Contrary to other reviews, I see no problem with the handle becoming too hot. Granted my hands are callused from handling hot metal but in the 10 minutes or so my little ethanol-burning stove (A Trangia 28) took to heat this kettle to boiling, the handle hardly even became warm. The reviewer who claimed this may have simply heated the kettle for too long. Easy done, since it's hard to detect steam coming from the spout and there's no considerable noise indication that the kettle's reached boiling. As with any outdoor cooking equipment, you need to monitor it constantly.
On the really positive side, this kettle is far flatter than a lot of similar models, making it much easier & more practical to pack into a rucksack, etc.
Completely draining it after use is very easy... no water gets trapped in corners anywhere, so keeping it clean & in good condition is no problem.
The drawstring bag it comes in is also really useful, allowing the kettle to hang outside of a backpack, freeing up space inside. Also handy for stopping small items blowing or rolling away while the kettle & stove are in use.
Sadly there's just not enough room inside my Trangia 28 for the kettle to fit without making the whole set too wide for my bag. Instead they travel side by side.
Over all an excellent little kettle. Very pleased.
Einzig eine kleine Pfeife am Kessel (als akustisches Signal für kochendes Wasser) hätte ich mir noch gewünscht, allerdings ist das natürlich Kritik auf hohem Niveau.
Für die besorgten unter uns bzgl. Aluminium und Essen: Alle Alu-Produkte von Optimus sind Hard-anodisiert, heißt: Mittels Strom und i.d.R. H2SO4 (Schwefelsäure) wird die natürliche Oxidschicht von Alu um ein Vielfaches erhöht. Das bedeutet Essen gelangt nicht mit blanken Aluminium in Kontakt. An den Stellen, wo es auf die Dauer mal "anmackt" repariert sich Aluminium von selbst. Es bildet sich mit dem Umgebungssauerstoff an den angekratzten Stellen eine neue, natürliche Oxidschicht. Anodisiertes Aluminium ist für die Essenszubereitung unbedenklich.
