We had a Chantal one that I bought because I loved the green color; one drawback was the all metal handle that required a potholder to pick it up. But it was pretty. And it had a three-part harmony whistle, a sound that someone couldn't hear when she forgot she was preparing tea. Then a bright red cheapie number that had black plastic components that eventually melted, preventing the spout cover from closing properly thus silencing the whistle.
So we need a new tea kettle. Working whistle is important as is a spout cover that won't melt. Under $50 would be awesome. Thank you!
