With only two possible drawbacks that I can see to using tea kettles. One is, electric powered tea kettles consume important counter space, the standard tea kettle sits atop your range. Since smaller living areas are becoming standard, this may constrict your precious counter space. Lastly, the electric kettle can`t work in a blackout so if you do buy a Tea Kettle be sure you arrange for a back up plan in case of a dreaded power failure.
Electric tea kettles can be purchased inexpensively and clean easily. They provide an automatic shut off feature when the water reaches boiling, whereby the stove top usually provides a whistle. An electric kettle may take up room on your counter if you prefer to leave it out of your cupboards when not used. This may be a consideration to those living with limited counter space. It can be placed inside a cabinet when not in use.
Some tea kettles are equipped with whistles, which let out a piercing sound whenever the water has begun to boil. People can be really funny about these whistling tea kettles! They either love them dearly or hate them severely, with no in-between emotions. The whistle can come in handy when you aren`t going to be able to stay in the same room with the tea kettle - at least you will know when the water is ready for tea making when you hear the whistle! Tea kettle purists say there is no need for such a whistle, and that it distracts the mind from the true purpose of the kettle, which is to bring the water to a quick boil.
Tea kettles take your daily tea break or occasional tea party to a completely different level. of course it doesn`t mean that tea cannot be prepared without a tea kettle but having one around makes it all the more traditional and pleasant.
