  • Rated 2 out of 5 by from Gorgeous but High Maintenance We received this kettle for our wedding and have managed to destroy 3 of them. The kettle itself is absolutely gorgeous but the whistles rarely work well even when ensuring it's filled to the proper level and the lid is on correctly. Also, it takes constant work to keep a copper kettle looking tip top. My 3rd kettle bit the dust this AM while I was on a conference call and I will not be purchasing a 4th.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty My only problem is that mine doesn’t whistle. Otherwise it is lovely.
