I have this kettle. It's served me well enough through five batches now. It has had a few chips on the bottom. I just scrubbed them until they stopped producing metallic bits (I don't want to think about how many of these little guys made it into my beer). I plan to continue using it, however, but I will be upgrading sooner or later. One thing to consider with this kettle is that the bottom is not flat. I've been brewing on an electric stove with the old-school coils and it doesn't sit flat, so the coils are not directly touching the bottom of the pot, which makes steeping temperatures difficult to maintain. Probably too much information, but it's worth thinking about your stove or burning in relation to the brew kettle's shape.
In other words, I'd say get it if you're looking for something cheap to start with, but you will be upgrading if you stick with it.
