The photo online makes the kettle look great. Make sure you read the specs when purchasing. I don't know why i thought i would be getting a 'really nice kettle' when actually its just cheap plastic and nothing amazing. It is the kind of kettle that you look at and think 'if i get twelve months out of it i'll be surprised'. for some reason i had thought i was buying a coated stainless steel kettle, something with substance, so the kettle is a real disappointment. When it dies I'll get something better quality.
