Summary: After less than 2 years it developed a fatal leak from where the plastic bound with the stainless steel. The lid also lost a positive detent prior and the capacity indicators wore. Overall this was a very poor quality product from what used to be a quality company.
Summary: The only thing preventing me from giving this product five stars is the design of the lid and the spout. The kettle is quite tall and it is quite difficult to fill the kettle due to the hinge for the lid being in the center (imagine a swing top trash can where you can push it open from either side)...
Summary: I have had this kettle for about 10 months, and while I like most things about it, it has started to leak from the bottom. I read this in other reviews and chose to ignore it, but I wish I hadn't. It's getting worse, and it's annoying to have it drip while you're trying to pour.
Summary: This was my second purchase of this item. It looks great, and works great... but eventually it springs a leak at the bottom. This generally happens after 2 years of daily use. It's unfortunate that they don't last longer.
