One thing that I've never really liked about tea kettles is the shrill, ear-piercing whistle that some have. I was very happy to find that this one has a much lower, tolerable whistle, more like a fog horn. It's actually kind of nice. The kettle is very sturdy and well made. The glass lid is nice because I can see if the water is close to boiling. It's pretty enough that I can leave it on my stove top if I want to.
