Good points

  • Fast boiling time.
  • OK to use.
  • Easy to clean non-stick surface.
  • Balanced (so there’s less pressure on your wrist when lifting).
  • Comfortable handle with narrow non-slip grip.
  • Has support handle if two hands needed to pour.
  • Suitable for metal utensils.
  • Dishwasher safe.
  • Oven safe.
  • Claims to be PFOA-, lead- and cadmium-free.

But

  • Glass lid can accumulate grime and be difficult to clean.
  • Steam escapes from around lid and condensation builds up on the handle.
  • Rim has a flat edge so load may drip on the bench when pouring.
