Lakeland Brushed Stainless Steel Jug Kettle 5 "My Luck?" Mr Bostock 22 January 2013 At 73, I've owned a few kettles. Never found a hinged lid kettle lasted. Some 18 months ago, I replaced yet another malfunctioning kettle with the Lakeland Kettle. Its marvelous. Not a sign of weakness. Works just great and wasnt expensive either!! So I'm just lucky, is that it?
