Who knew it would be so hard to find a good teakettle? I needed to replace a kettle that was only a couple of years old but did not clean well and had a whistle that no longer functioned. This time I set out in search of one made of stainless steel. I also wanted one that provided easy access to the interior and had a whistle. I already was a happy owner of All-Clad pots and pans so the All-Clad kettle seemed an obvious choice. I have only had this kettle a few weeks but so far it has met my needs. It's easy to fill without spilling water all over it and the whistle is loud enough to hear without being annoying. The lid is a tight fit so there is no worrying about it coming off as you pour. The reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is the size of the kettle. This is a BIG kettle. As the only tea drinker in the house I would have been thrilled if All-Clad made this kettle in a smaller size as well.
This is a terrific teapot, lovely design, a whistle you can hear but not too loud, and it holds a good deal of water. I use it half full and it works quite well. It has a nice design and is easy to handle, a well balanced teapot (not too heavy),
I can always rely on All Clad. I read reviews for other tea kettles and was not happy with any of them. I had an old Revere teakettle that just wore out. The new Revere are not made as well. All Clad has a life time warranty so I am not worried. All Clad has not let me down with any of their cookware.
I have one cooking utensil from All Clad for a number of years and it still looks good and is my best pot so I have some confidence that this kettle is a worthwhile buy. I can only afford one pot at a time.
The full story portion of the description says " Today, this revolutionary cookware is still made in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania—the same way it was four decades ago. All-Clad is the only bonded cookware manufacturer to use American craftsmen and American-made metals to produce a complete line of first-rate bonded cookware" . But yet it lists this tea kettle as being made in China under the description? I find this very misleading. Why is it presented this way?

Best Answer:This is an oversight that needs to be fixed. AllClad Cookware is made in Pennsylvania & this is the description used on the cookware product pages. I imagine it was mistakenly added to this kettle because it too is an AllClad product. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
Best Answer:I tend to empty my kettle once the water and the kettle itself have cooled down. I have forgotten to do so once or twice and have seen no ill effects as a result, but in an effort to reduce the need to clean the inside I would rather empty it out and wipe down after use.
Two questions: first, does the lid fit snugly? I don't want it to fall off when I pour. Second: does the handle get too hot to touch with the bare hand? In other words, do I need to use a potholder, etc every time I make tea?
As the handle looks like it is all stainless steel, I am wondering if it gets hot as does the lever to open the spout?

Best Answer:I have had my teakettle for only a couple of weeks but based on my daily experience I would say it does not get hot. I should clarify that I am in close enough proximity to the kettle (I'm still in the kitchen) when in use that I take it off the burner almost immediately after the whistle gains some strength. At that point not even a pot holder has been required. From the reviews I have read on the internet some feel that the handle does indeed get hot. I'm guessing that may be the case for those who let the water continue to boil longer, which would increase the heat intensity of the kettle overall. Personally, I am very happy with this kettle.
Typically not and I'm a sensitive person. I can usually pick up the kettle and open the spout after the kettle whistles and I turn off the flame. I find that if I reheat soon thereafter, the handle is to warm to hold and pour. I just grab a kitchen towel or pot holder. I was worried about this issue prior to purchase and reading reviews. I went ahead thinking I'd return it if the handle was too hot. I have no regrets as this is a great kettle and I love it. The handle issue is truly minimal.
The entire teakettle is stainless steel. The instructions state, "The teakettle handle, lid and whistle may get hot. Always wear oven mitts when handling teakettle or flipping the whistle lever open to prevent possible burn injury." Heats quickly, looks great, and appreciate the 2 quart volume. It is not made in the USA like the cookware--but so far very pleased.
I have hard water and it ruins the inside of the pot. Is there any pot that can help that and still make good tea?

Best Answer:I purchased the All-Clad Teakettle back in Nov 2014 because I've owned All-Clad pots and pans for 20+ years and know from experience that hard water will not damage or deface the Teakettle. The combination of stainless steel and aluminum will preserve its luster through generations!!
