Once you have decided what type of kettle you want you need to decide what material you want the kettle to be made of. A cast iron one is capable of heating the tea more evenly as it is denser but this also means that they are are a lot heavier and tend to rust. You can choose a tea kettle made of copper or stainless steel. Kettles are also available in glass and aluminum.
Believe it or not, you can actually find replacement whistles for tea kettles! And, you can also purchase a tea kettle whistle that you merely place onto the spout of a tea kettle that started out with no whistle at all. The most popular type of tea kettle whistle is made in the shape of a bird in flight, and is bright red in color. The notes of this whistle are clear and bright, quite a lot like a bird song.
Historically speaking, copper tea kettles have always been popular. The great tea house boom of Europe saw the first uses of copper tea kettles for boiling water. This was in preparation for the teas of the day. Intuitively, many copper tea kettles were crafted as homestead knick-knacks, adding to the elegance of home décor.
When purchasing an electric tea kettle you will have a wide variety to choose from. The expensive ones made of brushed aluminum are made to sit on your counter, and do not have to be tucked away in a cabinet, as they are so attractive. There are also many of these types of kettles that are inexpensive, decorative, and work just as well. You can find electric tea kettles in department stores, and specialty shops.
