Summary: I did not have any problem with my kettle dripping. Maybe there was one tiny drop when I finished pouring. I wouldn't have noticed if I didn't read the other reviews. The spout opens automatically when you tip it and I find this kettle very convenient as well as stylish. The whistle is perfect volume and not annoying. The only reason i'm not giving it 5 stars is that the handle is not completely cool after water is boiled so I usually have to use something to pick it up.
Summary: I LOVE OXO TEAKETTLES, THIS ONE IS HORRIBLE. BIG DRPPER. I CALLED OXO CO., THEY SENT ME A NEW ONE IN PLACE OF THE OLD ONE, BECAUSE THEY SAID POSSIBLE DEFECT. WRONG!!!!!!! THE NEW ONE DOES THE EXACT SAME THING, DRIPS!!!!!! DON'T BUY THIS ONE, GET THE ORIGINAL OXO, IT'S AWESOME. I PLAN TO THROW THIS OUT RIGHT NOW, AND PURCHASE A NEW OXO IN RED. I'M NOT EVEN BOTHERING TO CALL THE CO.
Summary: Oxo generally makes good kitchen products. I bought this one based on its beautiful appearance and the automatic spout opening mechanism, which seemed useful. I figured that the fundamental qualities that one expects in a kettle - including NOT dripping water down the outside of the spout - were a given.
