Check it out. Cant tell if the photo is distorted or stretched, but that is my best guess.

I think the picture got resized weird right? It looks like the picture is squeezed in from the sides, go buy that though

Looks like the kettle has been painted. The whole thing looks weird.

Resized pic or a wide angle lens would distort depth of field.

The kettle probably drank too much bourbon.  It looks like it has a splitting headache.

The distortion makes it look like a Sampson Dominion kettle.

Maybe the lid just seals super tight and now the smoke is just building up inside and soon itíll go BOOM

That is the rare Great Gazoo model - inspired by the Flintstones.

Why does the Kettle have a HANDLE on it [emoji848] and missing the lid holder?

Maybe it's happy to see you... :-)

Looks like that thing was scabbed together using different kettles... two different colors on the lid and bowl. Could that lid be from a Happy Cooker?
