Users comments
The user needs a handle attached at both ends to be able to lift the water kettle with the hand in a supinated position. This style is difficult to find. The water kettle cannot be too heavy. Loop on the lid makes it possible to lift the lid with one finger. Fishing line was chosen since it can hardly be seen and it is durable.
