The flute begins rather tender and then goes successively over in pervasive. During the cooking time you should definitely settle the headphones so that not only the neighbors are informed by the cooking result. So beautiful and homey, the flutes may be: A Kettles arises from not just as do normal kettle.
The central lid is quite tight. He should also, as you have put it too loose, it warbles not correct. The button in the middle you should retighten regularly, for me it has the tendency to loosen over time.
The handle is rigid and does not swivel. The latter would have I felt as practical (especially when opening the cover), but you can easily burn to a pivotable handle the finger.
The flute has come off with me a few times, fortunately, it has never fallen directly into the coffee. If, then it happens in the cooling phase. Then I hear a noise in the kitchen and know: Aha, the flute has fallen. I can prevent this by I close the lid after pouring flute again. But then the water cools more slowly. Now maybe asking one or the other Amazon customer, why boil water, if you want to cool it afterwards again fast. Well, I'm tap water to keep it in the fridge in bottles (for drinking). For this purpose it is advantageous if it again so very cool after boiling in a finite time that I can decant it easily.
Overall, not a bad Kettles, but with smaller weaknesses in practice.
