I have burned myself so many effing times with this POS kettle that I'm done. I have been drinking tea since it was given to me in my bottle (no joke, I'm from EU) and I have been around a number of tea kettles throughout my life. My previous kettle died - it wouldn't turn on anymore - due to so much use... so I had to buy another one. I turned to Amazon as I often do... and usually things go well. Not this time. This thing is a piece of crap. I have never had such an awkward pour. The water spittles out and burns me so damn often. So much water ends up on the counter. I would like to give this ZERO stars if I could. I just burned my hand again not 5 minutes ago. I. Am. Throwing. This. Out.
