Rated 1 out of 5 by Alexander Whistle doesn't work
The first thing I did was test the whistle. I could barely hear it, and my hearing is not impaired. My 40 year old Revere kettle has a very loud whistle you can hear all over the house. I took the Kate Spade kettle back because I'd never know when the water was ready unless I stood next to it the whole time. The "whistle while you work" doesn't work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by cabrook3 Do not buy
I loved this kettle it is adorable. However, is is very poorly made. When I received it the handle was loose. It was a gift so I never returned it. Now the handle has started chipping the paint away from around where it is connected. Sad I have to throw it out but chipped paint is not a cute look.

This kettle is so cute, but the handle rusted off after less than a year of use. I expected a quality product from Kate Spade and am very disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jess36 Nice shape... not right color
I purchased this item for my mom for Christmas. It came in the mail and it was the exact shape shown but the color was orange instead of red. Luckily my mom likes orange but just a heads up before you order the color is definitely orange and not red.

Rated 1 out of 5 by KSReview Disappointed. Can't give this as a gift.
Bought this for a Christmas gift. Just opened the box to find the enamel chipped in multiple spots. Surprised Kate spade would allow a damaged product to be packaged and sold. Now I do not have time to return and get a new one before Christmas. Very disappointing.

I absolutely love the tea kettle, however, I would call it orange versus red. I have yet to use it, but I think it will be perfect for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by thekid65 Great Tea Kettle
I purchased the Tea Kettle on line. This was purchased to give as a gift. I had it delivered to my home. It was well packaged and delivered on expected date. Had a lovely tissue wrapping within the package that looked to be a signature packaging for Kate Spade. I also purchased this item on sale and was at the price I was seeking to spend. Happy with my purchase and can't wait to give as a gift. Recommend. Look forward to future purchases.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Murray108 BROKE WITHIN THE YEAR
Within less than a year of use the handle rusted loose. The kettle can no longer be used without risking being scalded by boiling water. It's a beautiful kettle but the quality is horrible, especially for the price. I used it regularly but it mostly sat on my stove top and was occasionally washed with dish soap.

Rated 2 out of 5 by bo12345 Looks nice, but that's it.
I asked for this kettle on my wedding registry. When I got it I thought it was an instant return because like the other users, I didn't think it was very functional. 1. you need a towel to open the spout to pour water out of it 2. the lid fits terribly tight and awkward 3. it had a bump near the lid. But it looked amazing and I learned to use it. I got brave and would quickly flip the spout top up to pour with my bare fingers. UNFORTUNATELY, after a month of use, the spout lid has broken. This will now be going back for sure.

Terrible design. There is no way of pouring this teapot without water falling down the front of it. The lid also is very difficult to remove. It is a good looking teapot to display, however it is useless for actually making tea.

The teapot is really cute--a bright cheerful orangey-red color, however, I agree with those complaining about the lid's fit. It is difficult to get the lid on and off the pot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lozza14 Cute, compact, and makes a great cup of tea.
I originally was looking for a stove top kettle to save space in my tiny kitchen. I love the colour, and the little handle mitt to keep your hands from burning. I've had so many cups of tea since purchasing this. Checkout and shipping were easy. I ordered it on the Friday, and it was delivered by the Wednesday to Australia! Right in time for nice winter cuppas!

such a cute teapot, but very cheaply made. the handle is loose and feels like its about to fall off, and the enamel is flaking leaving red flakes all over my stovetop.

I absolutely love this kettle! It's beautiful, functional, and just an extra touch of sassy with the engraving. Perfect addition to my kitchen.

Rated 1 out of 5 by rdbilder Sooooooo disappointed
Just wanted to make my fellow spadies aware that I have had to send back two of the new tea kettles. My husband surprised me with a teal tea kettle and the first night we used it we notice water and steam leaking out of where the handle is attached and the spout (which made for a messy stove top). We sent that back and a new one arrived today. It took all of my force to open and close the lid. So, the second one is going back. I was so excited and surprised and am now as equally disappointed. No happy birthday for this Kate Spade customer :(

This is the prettiest tea kettle I've ever seen. It is just as beautiful in person- especially the happy aqua blue version. And it has the words "whistle while you work" on the spout, which is so adorable! Unfortunately, the pot lid is poorly manufactured- the metal sticks, and it's tricky to take off. I tried the lids on 4 pots and it was the same thing with all of them. Super disappointed because it's REALLY cute.
