Good points

  • Fast boiling time.
  • OK to use.
  • Balanced (so there’s less pressure on your wrist when lifting).
  • Pouring is easy (lip around top of saucepan means less chance of dripping).
  • Dishwasher safe.

But

  • Uncomfortable handle with no non-slip grip.
  • Glass lid can accumulate grime and be difficult to clean.
  • Noticeable humming noise.
