I bought this for my husband a couple of years ago, because it is all metal with very little that can melt on it. It is also very beautiful in the blue. It has lasted longer than any other teakettle to this date. However, I have watched the inside of it develop a rust deposit. I have tried to clean it out, to no avail. What I don't understand is, Where does this rust come from??? We use only distilled water, because this area water is full of minerals. This kettle is porcelain coated inside and out. Could it be that the inside was poorly coated with the porcelain. Vinegar will not remove it, it is rough and brown, now. It used to be shiny blue. I have used a no-scratch pad to try to clean it, but it just takes some off and I cannot get to it easily enough.
