Le Creuset Kone Kettles, 1.6L
This was a present otherwise I would be returning the kettle. There is no limescale filter behind the spout and scale builds up in the kettle, despite daily cleaning and emptying. The scum floating on top of tea is offputting and unpleasant. I was thrilled to receive this gift but am very disappointed and will have to replace it.

read the sticker
Great kettles, none of your lime scale problems! I had the previous design of this with the removeable whistle cap, which lasted me 13 years until the cap split and wouldn't whistle. Now, on the old one the handle was fixed , this one swings ( I assume this is for easy filling purposes?) but it swings over the centre before it is stopped ........... call me a perfectionist, but that is annoying! Read the sticker for where to fill to...... basically you don't fill past the bottom hole seen on the inside where the spout is.

Perfect stovetop kettle
Great quality kettle, feels sturdy and durable and classic design which looks great in the kitchen. The whistle isn't overpowering and you can use it on a convection hob. I got it in 'almond', it is lovely.

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.
