Very nice shape, and very nice polish. Not so big , but good enough to make couple cups of tea or coffee. Kettle gets hot after boiling water, but handle stays cold. I need 5 minutes to boil a full kettle, and about 3 minutes for more than half. Unfortunately the scale for water level is on the handle side and is not easy to read, but this is not a big problem for me. I like the blue light on the start- stop button.
