A boiling kettle has always been one of the most comforting things in a home kitchen. Of course, nowadays, you're unlikely to see a kettle hanging over the fire - unless you're camping. Today's kettle is likely to be a modern version of the old cast iron units but it still does a similar job. A mug of coffee or a cup of tea provides an essential start to the day for many of us, but boiling water can bring us so much more. The kettle heats it up fast, no matter which kind you choose.
Pick a stainless steel kettle to match your contemporary appliances. Choose a glass kettle to see exactly when the water comes to a boil. An electric kettle makes sense when you have available counter space. You can choose a corded model or a cordless unit. To save space, choose a whistling kettle that heats on the stove. Contemporary versions come in an amazing choice of designs. Yours will be ready and waiting whenever you say, “I’ll just put the kettle on for a cuppa!”
