I hope someone can help me out with this.

I'm modelling a moka pot, similar to this one:

This is what my mesh looks like in the snout area:

Fig. 1

Fig. 2

Fig. 3

As shown in Fig. 3, I marked the planes around the front of the snout as smooth, to get a nice rounded edge. However, in rendered view I get weird artifacts, such as can be seen here:

Fig. 4

Fig. 5

Does anyone know why I'm getting these weird results? Nothing I do seems to help.

Here's the .blend file:
