Bundita: I have owned 2 of these, both the stainless finish. The first one I bought in '99, and used it on an electric range. I like the loud, 2-tone harmonica/train whistle, had no problem whatsoever with the the handle overheating; it would get warm, but not too hot to touch. I used abrasive metal scrubbers on the stainless steel, and though minute scratches were visible, it was returned to a bright shiny finish each time. I liked it so much I bought one for my sister, who has a gas range, and she complained that the handle got too hot to touch. One day ~2007, I left the whistle top open and burned my kettle up; the plastic parts in the whistle melted beyond repair. So I bought a second identical kettle, and was equally happy with it until we moved into our new home which has a gas (propane) range. Now, on the new gas range, the handle is definitely too hot to touch when the water boils. I think I'll look into getting a silicone sleeve that I can leave on it. Some of the negative reviews here have me wondering whether Chantal has moved their manufacturing somewhere to a facility that doesn't have very good QC? I better take care of my older kettle!
Dorothy: This teapot is beautiful & well made. I have a water cooler that has hot water, so bought it for looks. It looks great on my stove top with my other stainless steel items. The only downside is that it was too expensive.
Gary: After the water boils, the cover to the pouring spout gets very hot and you really can't touch it without getting burned.
Mr. Honesty: I was searching for a more retro style tea kettle but I didn't trust buying an old used one. I decided on this kettle because I like the design. I was specifically looking for a kettle that had no plastic...which I think makes anything look cheap and ugly. I would have preferred an explicitly retro design but I think this is a great purchase anyway.The whistle doesn't work, but I bought it for the design and didn't even know it was supposed to have a whistle.
Night Owl: It is both outrageous and perplexing that a previously reputable company like Chantal (I do have some great Chantal pots that have served me well for many years, and I love them) would stoop so low as to have rusting parts in its kettles' whistles. Message to Chantal: If you can't equip your kettles with working whistles, get out of the kettle-selling business.
