This is my third cobalt blue Chantal tea kettle since 1990. The first two were beautiful, with the two-tone harmonica working great. I purchased this one in the fall of 2021 in anticipation of my move in the summer of 2022 to a new home in retirement. I was first disappointed to note that the color is a very dark navy, not the pretty, bright cobalt of the past. After a couple weeks of unpacking, I finally decided to boil this kettle to find there was only a slightly muted sound. We tried adjusting the screw several times to no avail. In fact, now I hear no sound at all. I also tried boiling a solution of water and vinegar, which also proved fruitless. I threw away the box with all my moving chaos, so I don't even know how to return this.
Ordered this kettle in cobalt about five months ago and am very pleased with it’s overall workmanship and the lovely color and pleasing shape. This kettle replaced a Chantal stainless kettle I had for years. Unfortunately the whistle stopped working well about a month ago and now does not work at all. Bummer. Had been careful to not over heat the spout too. However I love the way it looks in my kitchen so much that even with that flaw I am ordering another, along with a kitchen timer dedicated just to making tea. Normally I would never spend this much for something that has a serious flaw; nor rate it four stars; but the overall beauty and shape of this kettle is just wonderful. Bet at some point Chantal fixes the whistle issue.
Love the color. love that I now have a signal when water is boiled. Love everything about it.
This is my third Chantal teakettle (over a span of twenty-five years), and I only got this one because someone (who shall remain unnamed) boiled the last one dry. I love these teakettles. I will say that the current one does not seem to be whistling loudly or sometimes even at all when it boils.
This is my 2nd Chantal kettle. I love everything about it from the whistle to the little padded handle cover. The black kettle looks great on my gas range. Highly recommend.
