  1. Thanks to everyone for the responses. The problem wasn't the kettle at all. I changed gas burners on the stove and was using a very high flame. When I switched to a lower flame, problem resolved. Stupid me
  2. Thanks rustwood, I needed to make sure since that is the only reason I am looking to replace my kettle. Speaking of size, it seems that there are no decent kettles made that hold under 1.7 liters, twice as much as I need.
  3. Rustwood, I reread the description on Amazon. Yes, I was referring to how long it takes to be able to pick up the kettle. I just noticed the description says you can pick it up immediately. One of the reviews says it takes 30-60 seconds. Not sure which is correct, perhaps you can answer. Mumkin, what a super looking kettle. Glad you found a good deal. I would never pay anywhere close to $400. I would rather use a pot to boil water :). The one you sent a link for (thank you) has some damage and I would prefer something pristine. TicTac, I was very happy with the Le Creus

  5. Thank you rustwood! It looks to be what I'm looking for. I'm not familiar with infusers though. It looks like it has something to do with tea, which is something I don't care about. Is that correct? The only drawback I see is that per the description, you have to wait 30-60 seconds for the handle to cool. Although my Le Creuset probably takes a few minutes to cool now, at first you could use the handle immediately. This is my entire reason for getting a new kettle. Do you find that to be about accurate, that you have to wait 30-60 seconds for the handle to cool enough?
  6. My $150 Le Creuset was meant to last a lifetime. After 10 years of happy use, I guess something eroded the handle and I can't pick it up in my bare hands. Does anyone have a recommendation for a non-electric whistling kettle only to be used to pour water in French press coffee maker? Thanks.

    Here we go again in what seemingly has become a tradition. I think I got him (it's actually for my brother and his wife) a gift certificate for Truluck's last year. I didn't get much of a reaction from him, sort of, been there done that sort of thing, ungrateful bastid. -) For this year, I'm looking for something he probably never tried but not too far off the beaten path. Again, he's in Boca. I called Whale's Rib and they said you have to come in person to get a gift certificate!! That sounded crazy and I have to call back for the manager if I want to pursue it. Is that a place he prob

    Another year, another birthday, another suggestion please. Food Shack would be an excellent choice but it's 40 miles from Boca, a distance traveled only by foodies. My brother is not in that category. He liked Six Tables a whole lot. So, again, something a little out of the ordinary and under $150 for 2 near Boca. Thanks.

    Hey Jason! I know where I'm eating when I visit. Food Shack looks tremendous. Six Tables is a done deal and it looks pretty unique. I also think it's more apropros for my brother, fuddy duddy that he is. I'd love to read a review about it by you.

    Thanks for the responses. I should have mentioned that my brother and I are from NY and I was looking for something off the beaten path, something unique to the area. We have Ruth's Chris here. I saw Six Tables on yelp which got great reviews. Does anyone know of them?
  11. I'm looking to get a gift certificate for 2 for a restaurant in this area for my brother's birthday. He'll be vacationing in the area with his wife for 3 months starting in January. Unfortunately, I have no useful info regarding cuisine preference or anything else. I'm looking to spend between $100-$150. Thanks for any helpful info.
  12. Anything new on this subject?

    Who would've thunk that JC would get an "excellent" restaurant. I was there twice and had great experiences. On my last visit, I had the Ox Tail appetizer and the Pan Roasted Duck Breast. Both were amazing. I never had ox tail before but I am now hooked. I also had the kale as a side, also quite interesting. While the food is arguably the best that JC has to offer, I find it even more exciting that such a unique restaurant not only has the balls to open in JC, but to open on Newark Ave., a stretch filled with 99 cent stores. And from what I understand, it's doing a hefty business.
  14. Someone pointed out this post. The short answer is sadly, no. I loved being a part of Melt and most everything about it except scrubbing the toilet and losing a whole lot of sheckles. It amazes me that I still get inquiries about Melt, on average about 1 a week. But life goes on and I'm back to doing something else I love, restaurant accounting. Thanks for asking!

    It's 3 years later and another birthday. After a gazillion birthdays, my imagination is shot and it's gift certificate time again. I went with PL last time and it was right up his/their alley. Are the above recommendations still relevant? Any new place? Many thanks.
