Over the years some things change a lot while some things change very little. It seems when things are good people just want to stick with it.

The basic tea kettle has been one of those items that have withstood the change of time.

Designed with a basic pot equipped with a lid, a heat proof handle to pick it up without being burned and and long spout to pour hot water into a small cup.

Tea kettles have been made in various metals with copper and Stainless Steel being the most widely used.

Copper conducts heat faster than stainless but is also harder to keep clean and has to be polished often to prevent tarnishing.

Stainless is much easier to keep clean and stays looking new for years to come, making it the best overall and most popular choice for tea kettles.

These very durable Stainless Steel kettles are made to heat large amounts of water.

Besides making tea, a large capacity kettle to heat water has many other uses around the kitchen such as using hot water to preheat thermos bottles before adding hot coffee, to make instant oatmeal and coco mixes, adding extra hot water to cover the can lid tops in a water bath canner, and even to help unstop clogged sinuses.

Made of heavy surgical Stainless Steel these tea kettles are replicas of tea kettles made in the 1950s and 1960s, even including the old time Bakeliteā„¢ handles used on pots and pans during that era.

The Stainless tea kettles were designed to be used by the Amish after they began to realize the new lighter pots and pans were not holding up as well as the old style.

The Amish like heavy duty long life products to use in their homes with large families and these kettles are used by them daily.

These tea kettles are available at the back-to-basics sustainable living general store, Cottage Craft Works .com
