This little tea kettle works great. It is just the right size for my wife and I yet small and lite enough for use to take it anywhere. Even when we go car camping with the rest of the family we will take it with a back packing stove with us. When we wake up in the morning we will put it on just outside of the tent and then start getting ready. By the time we are ready to leave the tent the water is boiling and ready for a hot cup of tea. Perfect for those cold mornings. It is also lite enough to take back packing and small enough to not take up to much valuable space.
