This Revere tea kettle isn’t what I was originally looking to purchase. There was an expensive kettle on the Mighty Leaf website that I was interested in. Do to limited funds I ended up with the product above. Overall I’m not to unhappy with the purchase. It takes about 20 to 30 minutes to get water boiling in this kettle. That may be do to using slightly cold water from our refrigerator tap. If you don’t fill this tea kettle all the way you still have to be very careful with it boiling over. If you don’t get to it right as it starts to whistle you will have hot water spewing out. Filling this kettle is a pain. You have to fill from the kettle spout.
The metal under the handle gets extremely hot ( no surprise there ). So you should always use a kitchen towel or oven mitt when using this kettle. If care isn’t taken it will be a sloppy pour into another container. A large amount of steam will be present. Using caution and common sense in the kitchen is always advisable.
The packaging says quick heating. My experience has been far from that. I’m not the only one who has used this kettle. Each time with different users the boiling time till whistle blows has been 20 to 30 minutes.
Honestly a tea kettle is an old fashioned way to heat water. I wasn’t aware of the electric models before making the Revere purchase. These heat the water in less than 2 minutes depending on the model. The Breville SK500XL Ikon Cordless 1.7-Liter Stainless-Steel Electric Kettle looks interesting to me.
