This was a gift to my daughter--I don't know how well it works but it certainly is beautiful and cheery.
LOVE IT......I ordered the Marigold color, and it looks very nice in my kitchen.
This is my Spring/Summer teakettle. It works great, yes, but it looks really pretty on my stove. I switch out towels, table accessories, pillows in the family area to match the kettle for Spring and Summer. Perfect!
