Sounds like a cool looking kettle. But I gotta ask, if there's no opening
large enough to see if the water is boiling how do you fill it with water?!
:-) 
Here's an alternate method to test how hot the water. Pour some on your
hand, does it immediately scald to blister? If so it's hot enough! Ok, make
that pour into a pre-heated cup with a thermometer, yeah that would be
safer:-)

	:o)  I can't see in the little hole.  My kettle doesn't have a
removable lid.  it's an older copper bottomed shiney (well if I keep it
clean) silver domed kettle.  
	 
	Thanks!

Well, we know the hole is big enough for steam to pass through. So, she 
could always boil water in another kettle and then hold the two kettles 
so that the holes line up. That way, the steam will pass from one kettle 
to the desired kettle. Once the water converts from steam back to liquid 
form, she will have water in the desired kettle. Just a little "outside 
the kettle" thinking .......

I fill it with water through the spout which is the little dark hole I
cannot see into.
Hand did not immediatly blister but turned red right away.  the blisters
came later.  Next time I will read intire email first and try the pre=heated
cup suggestin.  ;O)
