Hi Gear 1 L whistling kettle, 08 April 2017
By Ken (Wigan)
The first time it was used, boiling water melted slightly the rubber/plastic top by the whistle. This was corrected by filing it down in the offending areas. Works better now.
Lasted two years and still going....for a fiver that's pretty good, 17 January 2017

I came to give this a review because for a fiver this little kettle has done bloody well.
I use mine two to three times a day, pretty much 7 days a week. My van is kitted out as a camper and I work away from home so....this kettle has been put through its paces. I read the other reviews and I can understand why it's got so many 1 star reviews...because those people are idiots haha!
As with ANY kettle: Yes if you over fill it the whistle will not work, yes if you position it badly on the stove the handle will heat up, yes overfilling it the kettle will leak as it boils ....like honestly...the people giving those reviews must be idiots incapable of operating a simple kettle like this...oh and mine didn't come with any springs? It is true the plastic is not heat resistant but honestly what do people expect for a fiver haha! So after two years the lip has melted slightly and makes pouring it a bugger. I used a piece of Sugru to fix it....now I have a nice new spout. Sugru is 8 pieces for £15 so my repair cost £1.87...see what I did there...cheaper to repair it and I might get another two years use from it. In the time I've had it this kettle has been dropped countless times, it's made cups of tea for the lads, it's been bashed about and abused....and it's still going strong. Call me mad but I'm taking it with me when I immigrate to America haha!
Bottom line for five quid it's been faithful and deserves better reviews
You would be better off using the box, 29 September 2016

Should have read the reviews first . What a load of rubbish. Badly designed and whistle/spout cover fell off because pivot points are too short to accommodate the spring. Took the first one back and exchanged it for another - in hindesight should have took the money. Ended up using it without the spring. However it leaks from the rim around the base and the paint is peeling off after only two uses. Left water in it overnight and found it in a puddle of water in the morning. Spout dribbles water when you try and pour. All in a a big pile of . . . . .

Wish I'd read the reviews before I bought this as the spring broke the first time I used it and although its easy to fix everytime I also find that its doesn't pour without dripping boiling water
Would spend more and get something better!

We thought this was great for a few quid. True, the spring fell out of the mechanism for the whistling spout on first use but hey-ho, it was a fiver. We had three cups of tea out of it with no scalding. Great for days out coupled with the gas stove.
