Le Creuset Kone Kettles, 1.6L
Splendid Kettle deign
This kettle design is extremely smart and in the almond looks splendid on the hob. I had delayed in reviewing this product as I had hoped with use the lid would become easier to remove. Sadly it hasn't so filling it is not good. Hence 4 stars and not five.

whistling kettle convert
This is my first whistling kettle and i love it. I did a lot of research as they kettle isn't cheap and settled on this.
My main concern was quality i didn't want something that was cheap and tin like and i wanted to make sure i got one which handle didn't get hot when it boiled so you could still pick it up.
It looks smart and modern. I also like that when i am not using it i can put it away.
You get what you pay for

Nice design that looks stylish!
The design and colour look amazing , easy to clean using a damp cloth. However, the lid can be quite difficult to remove in order to fill the kettle up, as the spout is too small to use as a water filling point. I really love the whistling noise it gives off at boiling point, this can be heard from up stairs in my home, so no more burnt kettles.

The perfect kettle
Having got feed up with electrical kettles being damaged by hard water, we decided a cosy stove top whistling kettle was the way to go. After much searching we decided to pay the extra and purchase the Le Creuset Kone. Best kettle purchase ever made!
There is a marked improvement in the taste of a cup of tea and it looks lovely and stylish on the hob. Highly recommended.

Great little kettle
Had read the previous reviews, and have found none of these issues. The handle does not get hot, the lid is tight fitting but this ensures that when boiling the whistle is loud and clear. It also looks stylish on my hob.

Chilli Le Creuset Kone Kettle, 1.6L, Cerise. Beautiful!
I love my new kettle. It is stylish and very practical. The whistle is loud enough to tell you the kettle is boiling, but not loud enough to deafen the neighbours.
I was lucky to find one that matches my new saucepan set.
See my review for John Lewis "The Pan" 5 Piece Nonstick Pan Set, Chilli.
John Lewis is always such a good product.

Beautiful & practical - perfect
I had one of these before (with the old separate whistle) and it lasted for years. My previous kettle needed replacing so I decided to treat myself using some of my John Lewis vouchers and don't regret it. The kettle holds plenty of water, does not shriek when it whistles and looks gorgeous. I wasn't sure about the integrated whistle but it is a good idea. I have a lot of Volcanic Le Creuset pans etc and this fits in perfectly. I would recommend just don't let it boil dry!
One more thing, the lid seemed very tight but has since loosened up with use

Having always had a gas hob & copper kettles, I needed a new kettle for a new induction hob as the water definitely tastes better boiled on the hob than in an electric kettle. The kettle is a lovely shape, great shiny black colour and has a clear whistle. It pours really well and is very easy to clean. Thoroughly recommend it.
