        Comments about Le Creuset Oolong Kettle:

        I use this kettle every day with my French press for coffee, and have for nearly a year. The whistle is responsive, so I can catch it when it first starts to boil. I was leary of purchasing, because I had read negative reviews on some sites, but I have no idea how people are struggling with this kettle. I did talk to a rep in a store who said that some people were trying to pour out of the whistle hole, which obviously caused lots of dribbling and mess. Maybe this explains the issues? I also read about a film that develops, but I haven't had any issues. If your local water has a lot of minerals, I recommend using filtered water. I have noticed that my local tap water will leave some minerals behind, so I use filtered water. It cleans out great. I also like that the button keeps my hands away from the spout, so I never get burned.

          Comments about Le Creuset Oolong Kettle:

          My wife loves this piece. She is of smaller stature, and the curved handle takes the strain off the wrist by balancing the weight when pouring. We use this tea kettle daily. There is no spillage as another reviewer shared. The modern design is complimented by a sturdy build quality that I have been missing in almost every other tea kettle I have handled in the last few years.

            I love this kettle! I am so happy that it was one of the few wedding gifts I received. It heats quickly and pours easily - mine doesn't drip at all. The best part is that it stays heated for quite awhile afterwards so I can go back and top off my teacup if desired.

            Comments about Le Creuset Oolong Kettle:

            I use this every morning, and in cooler months use two or there's times a day. I love the selection of colors, I bought the green. It's very ergonomically designed so comfortable to hold and pour. The only negative is it drips on the counter when you pour. I've compensated by pouring more slowly and holding it well over the cup or press so the drip lands in the cup, etc. too. It's a hassle but I'll deal.

            Comments about Le Creuset Oolong Kettle:

            I wish I had read the reviews before buying but I didn't think I had to worry about a Le Creuset tea kettle. Tea Kettles have 2 major functions: heating, and pouring. While it heats very well (as do most tea kettles), it pours terribly. How can a tea kettle pour so poorly!? It drips everywhere making a mess. So now you are forced to put a dish towel under the kettle while you pour (not convenient for sitting at a table with guests), or hold a towel directly under the spout to catch the mess.
            Yes, it's just water, and yes, it seems like a minor flaw. But the fact that it is one of it's primary functions is discouraging. And even more so because it is Le Creuset! We have at least 10 pieces from Le Creuset ranging form French Ovens to sauciers and we love them all. I am shocked at the poor function of this product and a bit angry that it wasn't caught in the testing phase to be fixed. Their products are usually great and can last forever if taken care of. So I was disappointed at the cost of such a dysfunctional product. We would have returned it if it wasn't a gift that someone went through a great debacle to get for us (it took 2 returns before the right one was sent from another retailer, not Le Creusets fault).

              Comments about Le Creuset Oolong Kettle:

              Nice looking, seems to be solid construction, however very poorly designed. When pouring it dribbles an excessive amount of water all over the countertops. Not what I would have expected from this company. I contacted Le Creuset and unfortunately there customer service was subpar and was not receptive to my comments that the kettle should be redesigned. The customer service seems to be designed for returns/warranty only. From what I gathered from my conversation the company does not use customer review to improve product lines. They rudely stated the obvious... That if I'm unhappy with the product then return it. Disappointed, will be returned.

                This is such a disappointing kettle. When you pour it, the water dribbles out everywhere. I am NOT pouring the water out through the whistle hole, like someone else said was the cause of this. The hot water spills everywhere, and you have to wipe it up every single time you pour something. I do not recommend this kettle.

                    I bought this kettle in Caribbean blue and have had it for a few weeks. It boils water quickly and whistles loudly when the water's ready. However, there is a major problem with the design of the spout. When you pour the kettle, boiling water spills everywhere. I contacted Le Creuset and they want me send it back for assessment. They suggested not filling the water past the opening of the spout on the inside of the kettle. I tried that, and although less water drips, it still makes a puddle on the counter every time I pour water. I love the color and look of the kettle so I don't know what to do. They won't send a replacement until they examine mine first so I'd be left without a kettle for a while. What a hassle! I'm not sure I want to even bother sending it back so I may just return it to the store for a refund and find a new kettle.

                    The kettle's colorful anti-slip handle adds both style and convenience, while its single-handed pouring operation keeps hands away from steam at the spout when serving.
