I just have to let you all know about my most recent purchase. Now as you know if you've read my blog at all, I generally purchase almost everything used at thrift stores or yard sales. So when I actually buy something brand new, even something relatively cheap, I do tons of research read the reviews, and compare prices before I buy it.
My last tea-kettles have all been correll ware kinds found at yard sales. The problem is that even though I quite like them they are small so that they don't fill up my tea pot when I'm making tea. And they don't have a whistle so my eldest daughter who also loves tea, forgets about it and it goes dry and then shatters.
So I resolved to bite the bullet and buy a brand new whistling tea kettle. First I looked at what was in stores, but I wanted something old fashioned looking and also stainless steel inside and out. Then I looked online at wally world and target. And then finally I looked at Lehman's website since I had to order something else that only they carry.
I saw they had several tea-kettles at the same prices as even cheapo walmart! But I fell in love with the above tea kettle! Here is the description.
Our three generously sized tea kettles feature a distinctive two-tone whistle, not the shrill screech of an average tea-kettle The easy-clean stainless steel body helps keep water hot. Your choice of sizes; ideal for canning or a family gatherings.
- Easy clean stainless steel kettles
- Extra large pour spouts
- Plastic handle stays cool
- Made of 201 stainless steel
They come in three sizes and I got the one gallon. Ok, come on one gallon! And by the way that is the smallest size available, the biggest is two gallons. This would be perfect for when the electricity goes out and you need to heat large amounts of water. It is awesome and I love it, especially the whistle that is so cool. When I first got it I immediately tried it out and right before it started to whistle gather all the kids around to hear it. They have never heard a whistling tea-kettle before! It sounds just like a train, but of course not as loud. My eldest daughter wants to get one now for her hope chest!
