    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charming and Functional! This shiny tea kettle looks charming sitting on the stove top in my country cottage kitchen, and I love the sound of the cheery whistle when the water starts boiling.

  • Do you think it is worth spending the extra to get the rapid boil? And did you consider the copper over the silver when buying? I’m torn! 

    Asked by: Butterfly
    Hi Butterfly, The rapid boil feature boils water 25% faster than traditional flat-bottomed models. The chrome plated kettle still has a copper interior, so the performance and maintenance will be compatible between the two finishes.
