Over all this is a good product and it is functional. However, there are a few things to watch out for. First, some of the edges on the stainless steel sheet metal are still sharp, so be careful. Second, the handle gets very hot while the water is boiling. So, be careful when handling. I wish that there was some kind of thin coiled metal around the handle so that a glove was not required when moving the tank from the boiling position on top of the oven to the warming position on the side of the oven. Other than those two knit picking complaints, the tank serves its purpose and is great for evening and morning tea!
