    So we are back to olden days now ?

      These are good for people with wood burners. A lot of people still have burners that heat their rooms and water, and therefore have a hot surface to boil water. Cheaper that an kettle

      Edit: Have a family house in Tas and everyone I know has a system like this there (Tassy is still in 1930 but)

        In my apartment complex, gas is charged as a daily usage without usage (hot water is metered seperately). So to save a few dollars, would be ideal to use a gas stovetop… Not sure how much it would be worth but something to consider I suppose haha

        •  

          To add another reason, I have an induction stove top and a small kitchen, it is just as fast if not faster for me to boil on induction, and just as efficient energy wise, and it takes up less bench space because the kettle stays in the stove. Also it's easier to clean than many electric kettles that have the element submerged in the water. And the kettle is much cheaper, esp than a retro looking cordless kettle. It also (should) last forever, plug in kettles die all the time

    Thanks ordered

    is this good to make green tea in

    • +2 votes

      Nope. Green tea should be at around 80c, these kettles only whistle at 100 so you'll always overshoot the temperature.

        You could always wait a few minutes after its done

      •  

        So which kettle should I get to stop boiling the water at 80c? And isn't we need to boil till 100c to kill all gems?

        •  

          Depends on your water source! If you need to boil your town water, move towns.

          You can get electric kettles that have a tea-function like this chap - https://www.bigw.com.au/product/russell-hobbs-addison-digita...

            @dutch: Personal and cultural preference, so I hope you can respect.

            By the way the kettle you suggested is a good consideration.

          Are you boiling your tap water that your normally drink cold?

          Use a good thermometer that you normally check food temperatures with, to ensure you're at 80c

            @TEER3X:

            Are you boiling your tap water that your normally drink cold?

            Yes i don't drink from the tap.

            Use a good thermometer that you normally check food temperatures with, to ensure you're at 80c

            So any kettle will do including this one.

          Probably a whistling tea kettle.

    •  

      No I wouldn't suggest you put tea in the pot. Maybe boil the water and use a separate difusser to make tea

    Did I need this? Not really. Did I buy it anyway? Definitely. In red.

    Damn was going to get a red but now they're $65 :-(

    Just a heads up as I have had this product before but it's weird after a few uses, there's rust inside, small flakes of it. It's relatively cheap at this price point but for your health, please do check up on the inside when you are utilising it. It could have been a defective model/item with my experience but just a heads up.

      thanks for this comment, too risky!

      I came just to post this. I had one (previous model, slightly different shape) for 2 years at least and at one point while cleaning it I felt a small rough patch. When I checked inside there was a 3mm circle where the enamel had either not been applied properly or had come off because of the intense heat (I ran the kettle at maximum power on my induction hob, including hitting the overpower button). Either way it was a rusty spot so I took it back for exchange to the distributor, but because they didn't have the model I got an online store credit for the retail price (which was good as paid 20 bucks but got an 80 dollar credit). Enamelled kettles, while looking nice aren't necessary, so I got a stainless one from Aldi and have been using that for about 4 years with no issues (of course, as it's stainless)

      It would be better if these guys used stainless steel under the enamel or maybe just enameled the outside, but clearly it's not so yes be careful of that. I always thought it was just me but since @deal junkie posted it seems more widespread. At least it has a lifetime warranty when I bought mine

    Probably cheaply made in China

    •  

      Like everything else?

      • +1 vote

        No, lots of things are well made in China. This probably isn't one of those.

  •  

    Price for white showing as $49.95 now- dang, must have just missed it.

  •  

    Had a circulon kettle before and within six months noticed the inside of it has small specs of rust. Didn't kept the warranty card and had to make a flower pot out of it. nice colours but not worth the price.

    I feel like picking one up and do some swings or Russian twists….
