Reviews from users

“This is the best kettle I could find. I tried two electric kettles and they weren’t good. I was hesitant to buy an enameled kettle since I am impatient. It makes a lovely sound as it boils water. Le Creuset’s price point should bring me both beauty and functionality. After water is added correctly, the whistle works fine. Wait about 10-15 seconds before pouring it to get a smooth pour”.

Andres Gonzalez

“Not a big deal, but a flashlight will help you see the depth of water compared to the holes of the spout when you set the kettle on a flat surface. The boiling time is medium, and the hiss is good but not loud. I think a mark on the outside of the lid would be nice, but I know you want the lid and kettle to be a uniform color, but I could certainly put a little mark so you are always aware of where the steam is coming from. Honestly, I like it”.
