Good points

  • Fast boiling time.
  • OK to use.
  • Steam only escapes from the spout.
  • Pouring is easy (spout means less chance of dripping).

But

  • Very heavy and no extra handle to help with lifting.
  • Handle has no non-slip grip.
  • Unbalanced (so there’s pressure on your wrist when lifting).
  • Not dishwasher safe.
