The design of the product is elegant and simple. However, the beautiful appearance does not last. There are many scratches on the surface of my kettle now simply because I used a sponge to clean it. Also, the design of the lid makes it impossible to clean the inside of the kettle, therefore not able to remove the mineral condiment. Finally, you can taste plastic in the water boiled by this kettle, which is a big NO for making good tea.
