CSN Stores- Le Creuset 1.8-Quart Whistling Teakettle ~review

When our family moved into our new house in December, we purchased all new stainless appliances for our kitchen. Even so, as much as I love my appliances, the rest of the kitchen leaves so much to be desired! First, it’s too small. Second, the countertop is old and black. The floor is laminate {not bad, actually}, and the walls are yellow. There is no pizazz to my kitchen. No flair. No fun.
The best I can do to add some oomph to my small kitchen space is to spice it up with colorful touches here and there. So, I added some fun dish towels, but I still needed something more. CSN Stores provided me with the perfect opportunity to bring a colorful little something to my rather boring space. Enter the Le Creuset 1.8-Quart Whistling Teakettle in Flame.

{Website Description}A whistling reminder that it's teatime! Decorate your stovetop with the Le Creuset Whistling Teakettle. It performs on all heat sources and has a unique locking handle for easy lifting and pouring. The Phenolic knob, handle, and whistle are heat resistant for safer use. The enameled interior is easy to clean and will not absorb odors. Creates a lovely serving piece!

• Attractive Flame color
• Locking handle for easy lifting and pouring
• Enameled interior won't absorb odors or flavors
• Phenolic knob, handle, whistle are heat resistant
• Glazed with hard glossy enamel
• Works well on all heat sources
I have been using my new teakettle for about two weeks now, and I must say that not only is it absolutely fun to look at, but it work great too! I did read some mixed reviews about the enamel rusting easily, so I just wipe mine dry once it cools to avoid that issue.

  • Boils quickly

  • Comfortable handle

  • Tight fitting lid

  • Loud whistle

{About Le Creuset}
From start to finish, Le Creuset is the ingredient that brings every evening together. In kitchens around the world, from acclaimed European eateries to family dinner tables, Le Creuset has been trusted for over 80 years for its legacy of style and quality. Their brilliant colors and user-friendly cookware pieces have created an unforgettable dining experience. The ease of cooking, serving, and storing leftovers in one dish is truly wonderful! Le Creuset has been trusted by those who appreciate every subtle complexity of flavor. Trusted by those who want only the best for their guests and who enjoy food - and life - to the fullest!

Since 1925, Le Creuset has designed and manufactured their Enameled Cast Iron cookware at their foundry in Fresnoy-Le-Grand, Northern France. It began producing Cast Iron by hand-casting molten cast iron in sand molds, still the most delicate stage of the production process. Even today, after casting, each mold is destroyed and the cookware is polished and sanded by hand, then scrutinized for imperfections. Once declared good for enameling, the items are sprayed with two separate coats of enamel and fired after each process at a temperature of 1472°F. The enamel then becomes extremely hard and durable, making it almost completely resistant to damage during normal use. Since much of the finishing is done by hand, each Le Creuset Enameled Cast Iron cookware piece is completely unique!
