It’s All About that Tea Kettle

Brew the perfect cup or tea every time with the right tea kettle.

When it comes to brewing tea, the right equipment can mean the difference between the perfect cup, and a passable brew. It makes us shudder to think about brewing an undrinkable cup of tea. But don’t worry we’ve got you covered. When it comes to the perfect tea kettle, there are a few things you need to keep in mind.

  • Durable: Before you buy that fancy tea kettle, make sure it’s durable inside and out. Tea kettles can be made of plastic, glass, stainless steel, copper, cast iron, and aluminum. Choose a kettle that you not only love the look of, but that will last you for years.
  • Comfortable: The handle of your tea kettle is just as important as the body. Choose a kettle with a comfortable and easy-to-grip handle.
  • Cleanable: We hate cleaning. If we have a tea kettle that requires special tools or miniature hands to clean inside, we’re less likely to use it.
  • Features: Fancy tea kettles can come with amazing features. Look for cool-touch handles and other features that will make your brewing more enjoyable.

Next, it’s time to consider if you want a stovetop or an electric tea kettle. There are benefits to each, but it’s up to you. An electric tea kettle bowls water twice as fast and is safer to use as it has an automatic shut-off. However, electric kettles are not going to come in as many styles and colors as stovetop models, so if you’re looking for something unique, stick with the stovetop.

If you’re looking for some fancy and fun stovetop tea kettles, here are a few of our favorites.
