I have quite a few pieces of copper cookware and love the patina it accumulates with age and use. But this doesn't develop a patina, the copper simply comes off in patches. I've never encountered copper plating so thin, especially on a tea kettle that costs $160. Every time I clean this kettle I loose more and more of the plating, revealing the stainless steel underneath. I wish I'd taken a look at the reviews for this product on some of the other retailers' Web sites, because they all have reviews that mention this problem.
And as far as a lifetime warranty goes, think again. This kettle has a 1 year and a 5 year warranty, depending on which part of the kettle you're having issues with. From Chantal's Web site:
"This warranty does NOT cover (1) ordinary wear and tear (such as scratches, dents, cleaning issues or stains to the stainless steel or copper's external or internal surfaces that do not impair the functional utility of the product),..." I've contacted Chantal several times and been told that this was either ordinary wear and tear or a cleaning issue and is not covered under the terms of the warranty. This kettle was not abused, boiled dry, or cleaned with anything other than vinegar and salt solution that the company suggests on its Web site.
My advice is to save yourself some money and heartache and buy another kettle.
