I bought this kettle a few months ago and use it daily. It heats water very quickly and is easy to pour without dripping water everywhere. The beautiful metallic red finish is what caught my eye in the first place, as well as the cute round shape. The only drawback of this product however, is that the finish chips rather easily. I accidentally hit the side of it with something I was putting away and the finish flaked off in that area, leaving a tiny silver spot in the middle. The lid edge also has a few very small spots where the finish came off too. I was able to mask them quite well with a touch of red permanent marker fortunately. Overall this is a great little kettle for the money and if you are a bit clumsy in the kitchen, make sure to keep a red permanent marker on hand!
