You won’t believe how many things can go wrong with this simple kettle: the spout is defective and water can spill posing a burn hazard, the steam can travel up to the handle and burn your hands. Additionally the leaking steam can prevent the kettle from whistling and if all the water evaporates the kettle may actually melt on your stove!
If you recently bought a Chefmate Tea Kettle at Target please stop using it immediately. This defective product has been recalled because it poses a serious burn hazard. For more info visit the Consumer Product Safety Commission website
