Le Creuset Traditional Stovetop Whistling Kettle
Takes forever to boil and whistle is very very quiet
Takes at least 15 mins to boil on our AGA with 2 mug fulls of water, the whistle is very very quiet so you can't leave the room while it is taking an age to boil.
The lid doesn't fit properly so steam escapes.
Looks quite nice hence the one star.
I'll be returning and getting a proper AGA kettle.

Does what it says on the tin
After having 3 electric kettles break, we went for a stove top, this is a great size holds enough water when you have guests so not constantly boiling the kettle for caffetiers and tea. No electrics so should last forever! Takes longer to boil but doesn't make much difference. Great kettle and works on any heat source not just gas, looks great too! Would also double for camping being pretty sturdy. Would recommend this product.

No more leads!
Bought this kettle as we have an induction cooker and wanted to make the most of it with this induction kettle. It is nice not to have the trailing lead of the electric kettle in the way any more and it has also given us more worktop space. Very pleased with the kettle. It does take a little longer to boil but you get used to it and it is worth the wait rather than having trailing leads. Easy to fill & easy to pour and the handle stays cold so no worries about picking it up. The lid is a little tight but that is not really a negative. Overall I am very happy with this product.

This kettle is a classic with a twist - a choice of lovely colours! Have purchased it in cerise and am delighted. Does all it's supposed to do.

Now waiting for our third replacement. First whistle stopped working after 3 weeks, second enamel has started to peel off lid. Hopefully third time lucky as we really love the design of this kettle.
Beautiful looking kettle otherwise and quick to boil. Whistle does tend to be on the quiet side.

Nice but heavy!
Bought this to replace an Aga stove top kettle that had seen better days. Being Le Creuset, this kettle looks good and is well styled, but of course it's heavy even when empty so by the time it's got water in I need both hands to lift it to the stove, and then to pour (although my husband manages fine). Also, the whistle is not as loud as the previous kettle. But even so it's a good kettle, looks fab on the stove and overall we are pleased with it. The price at JL was better than elsewhere

Used a lot
Was very happy with the kettle, only problem it is heavy and removing the lid to refil is a little bit difficult

Shiny black kettle
This Le Creuset kettle is really very pretty. The capacity of 2.1 litre is very good if you need to boil a lot of water.
The sale price of this item was the cheapest one I have ever seen.
Free postage was a real bonus.
Well done John Lewis
