This enamel- on-steel tea kettle will allow you to control the temperature of your water (vs. the microwave oven). For expert tea drinkers this is very import because the flavor of the tea is affected. Serving from a teakettle for either yourself or guests gives a nice presentation while keeping your remaining water warm. The lid is made of a heat tempered glass which allows you to see the progress of your boiling water and adds a sophisticated look. You can use this on any kind of stovetop. The fold down handle allows for easy and quick filling or cleaning.
The alert whistle is a harmonic hum sound (not a train whistle!) that lets you know when your water is boiling.
