Good kettle, too expensive though.

Lee, Amazon

  • Summary: I really like this kettle, it heats quick pours well and everything is in the right place. I would like to see a better handle attachment than the single screw, but so far it seems to do the job. I use this on an electric stove and have not had any problems with the metal handle getting hot, but it might be an issue for gas range users. The whistle is loud but not obnoxious. I had to give this 4 stars for the price.

  • Summary: The whistle is so loud it almost sounds like a train's horn. Very beautiful, sturdy and great weight. Easy to clean.

  • Summary: After the water boils, the cover to the pouring spout gets very hot and you really can't touch it without getting burned.

Our old one still going strong. New one we gave as a gift…faulty whistle - a fire hazard.

  • Summary: I ordered this for my parents because they love our Chantal Kettle…now 12 years old. The one they received had a weaker sound when watered boiled. I proceeded to weaken to the point it is barely audible. Unfortunately, the return period expired by the time it became a hazard. They have only had the product for three months. VERY disappointing. Perhaps the Chantal Kettles are not what they once were.

I love this teapot

Dorothy, Amazon

  • Summary: This teapot is beautiful & well made. I have a water cooler that has hot water, so bought it for looks. It looks great on my stove top with my other stainless steel items. The only downside is that it was too expensive.

Dangerous tea kettle

Mary, Amazon
31 January 2014
  • Summary: Do not buy this tea kettle. If you let it boil out the bottom melts and liquid aluminum spills on your stove top. My wooden floor and kitchen rug were burned as well when I tried to move the kettle off the stove. This is highly dangerous.

Long-time friend, this kettle; are the new ones the same quality?

Bundita, Amazon
25 November 2013
  • Summary: I have owned 2 of these, both the stainless finish. The first one I bought in '99, and used it on an electric range. I like the loud, 2-tone harmonica/train whistle, had no problem whatsoever with the the handle overheating; it would get warm, but not too hot to touch. I used abrasive metal scrubbers on the stainless steel, and though minute scratches were visible, it was returned to a bright shiny finish each time.

Like tea, but hate the shrieking of a teakettle?

mike, Amazon
18 November 2013
  • Summary: Love the soft 2-tone whistle. I'll never go back to a screaming teapot again. The only downside is that you have to grab a little potholder/cover thing for the handle every time, but that becomes automatic soon enough. I took 1 star off for the handle...I would have preferred wood or something I can grab without an extra tool. (Note to people who gave it 1 star because they don't like the maintenance of copper: you probably should have gone with the stainless.

Item works and is a good replacement for the one that wore out

  • Summary: I bought the first Chantal for a present for my wife and she loved it. That was ten years ago. The replacement was better than the original.
