If you don`t have one already, consider buying a tea kettle. The next time you want to enjoy a nice cup of tea or instant coffee or have a bowl of instant hot cereal, your tea kettle will come in handy. You will be able to pour your water quickly and cleanly. If you work in an office and crave the convenience of being able to drink a cup of tea or instant coffee at your desk, then an electric tea kettle could become your new favorite piece of office equipment.
Copper tea kettles bring to mind images from the Victorian era and give them impression of a rustic yet traditional and practical approach to life. However, few know the qualities and advantages of copper kettles or why they`re back in our post-modern gadget-friendly age. Copper is an extremely ductile and malleable metal, and that makes it one of the fastest conductors of heat and electricity. Placed on a medium flame, copper kettles facilitate faster boiling of water than kettles made of any other metal. What`s more, these kettles let out a reliably loud whistle to alert you when your water is boiling. This makes these kettles an extremely practical option for making tea.
An important part of the handle`s design is heat proofing. You want a handle that will not get too hot for you to grasp and hold. Many of the cheaper tea kettles do not offer this option, and it is sorely missed by those who have become used to it, most especially when they are nursing a burned hand as a result of expecting a heat proof handle on a tea kettle and discovering the kettle in question does not have one!
A few tips on buying the right tea kettles that would satisfy your need. First of all you need to know what size, type and design etc you want to buy. Next up, you will need to short-list the manufacturing material that you want in your kettle, like copper, stainless steel etc. A stainless steel kettle is known for its beauty but since the material is thicker, it takes time for the tea to boil. Whereas, in the case of copper kettles, since copper conducts heat very quickly, you would need only a medium amount of heat to make your tea. Also, people prefer the old and worn out look of copper. Cast iron is also used to make kettle, but the down point is that it has a high chance of rusting, so look out for that.
