So far, after a few weeks of using this tea kettle, I love it! If you need the reminder that it's on the stove, you can put the whistle on it or if you don't need the reminder, you can leave it off. The handle is coated, so it doesn't get as hot as the other one that I have. However, I would not recommend taking it off the stove without a potholder anyway as it does get very warm.
