I am completely satisfied with my Le Creuset whistling teakettle. I chose blue to give my white kitchen the perfect color accent. I have a hearing problem and although I wear hearing aids, I needed a whistling teakettle that would be loud enough for me to hear. In the past the other brands I've tried either the whistlers weren't loud enough or they stopped working after a couple of months. I also love the fact that it is so easy to clean. I also purchased one for my daughter in fennel. She is very happy with it.
