Waited for this back ordered tea kettle. Just installed a mirrored mosaic backsplash and this modern classic completed the look. Love the wood handle against the silver metal.

Great style with polished chrome and wood . High quality as felt in the weight of the kettle . Very loud whistle when at boiling point . I did not realize that the kettle top while appearing to be designed to come off for easy filling does in fact not come off and kettle must be filled through the pour spout , which isn't a big deal , just not expected , guess its a case of design winning out over function . Even so , I am happy with the purchase and the price paid .k
