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.
I've just updated four stars to five. The seemingly light weight of the kettle has not been a problem--in fact, it makes it easier to lift when full of water. PLUS I've discovered that because the bottom of the kettle is quite wide, water heats up noticeably more quickly than in my former taller and narrower (and heavier) kettle. Love this kettle.
