The unusual bottom is what caught my eye. I have never seen it before. It is made to be used on a gas stove and the design helps the water boil faster. It also has a patented spout that has a built-in whistle. I haven't tested that out yet. Right now it is sitting in my kitchen sink, waiting for the oven cleaner to remove the baked on grease.
I don't have any more junky plans for the weekend but rain is in the forecast for the afternoon so we will see if I can stick to my guns on getting the patio cleaned up or if I veer off the path to junk-land!
