KitchenAid's new Gourmet Essentials teakettle holds 2-quarts, giving you plenty of hot water for your soups or beverages. This new line combines beautiful porcelain enamel-coated exteriors with the brilliance of stainless steel found on the lids and handles. In a delightful Black color, the teakettle has sturdy handles covered in matching, heat-resistant silicone that offer cooks a firm grip.
Let me start by saying, I have a powerful gas stove, as such, it's very difficult to find a kettle without plastic parts that will melt, or handles that will get hot. This one has silicone which is way better than plastic. The base of the kettle is nice and wide, but the flames, if on high, can still lick their way up the side. This wouldn't be a problem if the handle had the silicone go all the way around, however, there's a sliver of exposed metal running the length of the handle on both sides, and this unfortunately can heat up. I'd imagine this isn't really a problem on most stoves, so I'd only worry if you have really high BTU burners. The finish is brushed, which is nice, since I have to scrub it occassionally as it sits on top of my stove all the time and it picks up spatter sometimes while I cook. Overall it's still way better than anything else I've found.
Well made teakettle. Good whistler. Just wish spout would open wider.
I ordered this to replace another teakettle that was awkward to use. This one is larger and easier to use. The water heats quickly. The whistle is pleasant and easy to hear. The shade of red is attractive. I am much happier with this teakettle.
Replacing an old teakettle . . . nothing beats the quality of KitchenAid! This kettle is nice, sleek and easy to 'operate'.
I'm a single guy so 'tea kettles' aren't necessarily something I'd get to excited about (or write about). Having said this, the kettle is nice looking (looks good sitting on the stove), well made and a good value for the money. The 'whistle' is OK too.

For the perfect cup of tea, start with cool filtered water and bring to a rolling boil before pouring it over your teabag. Steep according to the directions on the tea package- different blends require different steeping times.
