Mauviel Tea Kettle - bad idea? (rust)

virtualdestructor2 | Mar 30, 201807:20 PM     8

Anybody knows what is up with quality of Mauviel tea kettles? Looked inside one at Williams-Sonoma store today - bottom half-inch was hard-core rust belt (real flaking rust, not yellow/reddish spots that look like one), there was serious discoloration higher up (hard to tell if crappy steel not polished off or hard water scale spots).

Looking at online reviews - apparently these get rusted to heck and returned to store within a week.

I been very happy with Mauviel pots - do they make tea kettles in China or use Chinese steel and just stamp made in france on them? Or somebody else makes kettles for them? Or Mauviel quality is a thing of the past now?

Anybody knows what's the story there?

And if you have recommendation for steel or glass kettle, stovetop or electric, not made in asia - please do share :)

Thank you!
