Top customer reviews
As others have described, the lid does not snap tightly on, but this is not a problem. It is easy to remove it to check progress and your hand on the handle will keep it in place when you pour. The kettle is balanced, pours without dripping and is solidly made. When at a rolling boil, it dos not spurt out water even when filled to capacity.
Just be aware, while a lovely design, this kettle is VERY petite and understated -- even humble looking. It will not make a grand statement perched atop your huge high end stove. If you want a really eye catching, traditional, flat bottom kettle that will work on a glass top stove, I would recommend the Demeyere 4.5 qt kettle instead.
I have more tea in my kitchen than I have food. Needless to say,
I take tea seriously and I have owned many tea kettles.
The Sori Yanagi kettle is a beautiful balance of simplicity and practicality. It’s functional poetry. A testament to the elegance of the Japanese design aesthetic. The kettle holds a generous amount of water, yet always seems light due to its graceful construction.
It pours easily and cleanly every time. The matte finish is softer than the mirrored finish and it gets better and better with use.
This is an excellent product, enjoy it!
To other posts:
--The unit is all stainless-steel... Mine, stamped, 18/8 18/0+Nb
--Perceived "rust" is like rust on steel, yet discoloration of stainless-steel is not "rust," as we know of iron... I'm not supporting the mfg, but suggesting that, from a few pics of reviewers posted, that's not rust, but heat discoloration, NOT rust.
--Will say, the affix of the "screen" to this kettle is, as has been posted in pics, NOT welded well, in fact shoddy. Yet, I know, without that shoddy affixed screen, the water flow from the spout would be disastrous! So, recognize faults as "after thoughts"...
....Otherwise, super-duper kettle!
If you are like me, the first thing that you will notice about this kettle is that it was made by hand - a very skilled hand. The handle only folds down to one side, for example. If the handle was die stamped by a machine, it would have been trivial to bevel both edges of the handle. But this handle was beveled by hand. And time is money - so this handle is only beveled on one side and, as such, only folds to one side. This isn't a problem - just a personality that one must learn to live with - like a child, spouse, or an absent-minded professor.
Additionally, I purchased this kettle with the matte stainless finish (which looks nothing like the picture - more like a typical shiny stainless appliance - not that I would mind what is pictured) and the "brushed" grain really shows some intangible, hand-finished imperfect qualities. And then there is the welding - this kettle was designed for pouring tea. And the most important parts of that are the spout and the gravity feed design. Every other kettle is stamped from a single piece of metal - not this one. The spout, which is a separate piece of metal and affixed to the kettle body via a skillful weld, appears to be hand-hammered.
Finally, there's a welded screen on the inside of the kettle in order to prevent tea bags from wandering into the spout during a pour - wonderful attention to detail that you will not find on kettles in this price range ever. The lid fits loosely but, when the water boils, the form and function all come together: holding the lid down tightly causes the water to boil out of the spout. This is why the lid fits loosely (as well as the two holes that have been punctured). This is why others call this kettle "light weight" - the low mass allows the available heat to go directly into boiling the water.
This kettle is worth $1000. Under $100, I will be purchasing these in bulk to fund my retirement, which will likely be spent in Japan. I hope they like large, corn-fed Mid Westerners.
