steel

Reviews around steel (4.58 of 5)

  • Their stainless steel kettle beyond met my expectation.
  • I was disappointed in the weight of the stainless steel.
  • Looking for a traditional looking stainless steel teapot.
  • But after a closer look, it's not the top of the line quality that i was expecting from OXO (it's made in China so the stainless steel is questionable)
  • It is all stainless steel as advertised, not just the bottom of it

handle

Reviews around handle (4.55 of 5)

  • The rubberized handle gets warm on our gas stove, but not too hot to pick up
  • also the handle and spout lever are not hot even when the water is boiling.
  • The handle does not get hot so pouring the water is no problem.
  • The handle is heat resistant, ergonomically perfect when pouring, kettle heats water quickly, and whistles just loud enough
  • Very easy to use and the handle doesnt get hot as other reviewers have indicated

shape

Reviews around shape (4.45 of 5)

look

Reviews around look (4.42 of 5)

  • In general, the look and feel of this product was not appealing.
  • We have a historic home built in 20's, so I wanted a classic looking tea kettle.
  • Trust me, I too was looking for a good seamless tea kettle
  • I have walked away from kettles before and they have burned this one looked like a good solid kettle that had a loud whistle
  • Would recommend if you are looking for a well built kettle that will last a long time.

quality

Reviews around quality (4.30 of 5)

  • These are due to the rubberized parts not being well reinforced, the poor quality of the materials and the overall design of the vessel

tea

Reviews around tea (4.29 of 5)

  • This is the worst quality tea kettle I have ever owned.
  • Trust me, I too was looking for a good seamless tea kettle
  • But I think I found the one in Oxo's classic tea kettle.
  • Please make sure you know whether you want a tea Kettle (boils water only), or a tea Pot (to steep tea in and pour out slowly) before buying
  • It has been a good tea kettle and works fine as long as you don't over fill it

pot

Reviews around pot (4.03 of 5)

  • It's crazy how much time we spend searching for something like a stupid tea pot, but I gotta say this one delivers
  • Anyone know the purpose of the more expensive, absolutely adorable and beautifully crafted tea pots that only carry a minimal amount of water 2-3 cups (in today's world, that 1 mug); anyone know
  • After an exhaustive search, I found the perfect tea pot
  • and if I do not clean the pot once a day I will get mineral
  • The whistle is not as loud as some tea pots I've owned, but it's loud enough

design

Reviews around design (3.92 of 5)

  • But there is a fatal design flaw here - once the water boils and it whistles, you have to touch the lever on the spout to open and pour the water out, and it’s freaking hot
  • I am very pleased with this teapot: nice design and easy to use.
  • Good capacity, simple design, decent whistle (not annoying, but can hear), nice rotating handle for easy storage
  • My only (tiny) complaint is that I'd prefer to have a button on the handle that opens the spout to pour, but maybe that would mess up the classic design.
  • This is hardly the good ergonomic design I expected from Oxo.

product

Reviews around product (3.75 of 5)

  • fairly expensive but a well made product .love the design...the brushed stainless matches other kitchen appliances plus it is a pleasure to
  • Stainless steel throughout makes it a good looking product and easy to clean.
  • On the other hand I thought that 900 reviews and 4 stars on amazon, can't be a bad product considering that many one star reviews are from very picky customers (which is true and I will tell you later about it)
  • Saw this product was the recommended test winner on America's test kitchen
  • I love oxo products and this tea kettle is no exception

inside

Reviews around inside (2.40 of 5)

  • Heats fast, easy to clean the outside, water stays surprisingly hot (inside) for a long duration, has a very tight lid and the spout release is a useful feature
  • Two great features of this tea kettle are that there is a lid you can remove to clean the inside of the kettle, and the handle can be moved to the side for filling
  • Paint?Looks nice on the outside , but beware the inside
  • and I like it a lot first and foremost it’s easy to clean I
  • Its best features are: the handle moves so you can easily fill it, it has some kind of rubber so that the handle and spout opening do not get too hot, the lid is big enough to make it easy to clean the inside, and it has a larger capacity than most.

time

Reviews around time (2.21 of 5)

  • If you don't have enough time for that, buy a different one.
  • I had to replace my 25 year old kettle and was having a difficult time finding one as good
  • every time I pour the water out after boiling it spurts/blurts out the water, quite dangerous as it is boiling water
  • I had to replace my 25 year old kettle and was having a difficult time finding one as good

water boil

Reviews around water boil (1.80 of 5)

  • Steam escapes from around the edges of the lid when the water boils
  • I am amazed how quickly the water boils - within a few (like 5-6) minutes the water is ready
  • But, personally, i still prefer my electric kettle:) See my review on Salton kettle Salton GK1465 Cordless Electric Glass Kettle, 1.7 L, Clear
  • And this is the first of my last 3 that truly stays manageable to pick up with an un-insulated hand after the water boils (cool - and the water boils super fast in this)
  • When water boiled, it is easy to overflow and turn off gas stove

finger

Reviews around finger (1.76 of 5)

  • The spout must be opened with great care in order to keep from burning your fingers
  • Also, the knob on the lid weighs more than the lid itself, so once it flips itself upside down, it is next to impossible to right it and secure it in the pot without burning my fingers
  • The pour cap finger-tab itself, as mentioned, has a silicone "pad" for protected finger-control on both the top (for lifting it to pour) and the bottom (for popping it back into closed position)
  • and I like it a lot first and foremost it’s easy to clean I
  • Flipping the whistle up to pour is easy - you just press the lever down - but closing it on a hot kettle is very hard to do without burning your fingers, using an oven pad, or poking the cap down with a spoon

whistler

Reviews around whistler (1.57 of 5)

  • Loud whistler, but you can disable it easily (I like the loudness though).
  • One other nice feature, the whistler is loud enough but subdued
  • The whistler (upon which I depend) is loud and clear (and not obnoxiously shrill!
  • The water shoots out the spout and burn the $W%[email protected] out of my hand.
  • and I like it a lot first and foremost it’s easy to clean I

  • (March 2017)I am updating my rating from 2 to 4 stars after having used this now every day for over a year without any problems or rust issues
  • We do pamper teapots by drying the lid and inside of pot after use, so we don't expect to see any rust issues
