My wife and I have been looking for a quality STOVETOP kettle that was a little better than the old kettles we had when we were children. We found there was a good selection of electric kettles (countertop), but not really a good selection of quality kettles that were made for stove top use.
We were both surprised to learn that this GLASS teapot/kettle can withstand instant temperature changes. Not that we would ever need to pour boiling water into a super cold (GLASS!) kettle, but...you CAN! I almost want to try it...but better not.
The addition of a stainless steel filter was a nice touch. We like to use a variety of different teas and herbal drinks, it's not pleasant to find a floating (something) when you take your first sip. It's also completely wash-able, so any particulates the Stainless Steel filter catches can be rinsed out easily.
Bringing back the old kettles we used to use - we don't need a gallon of hot water! This (2017 version of a tea pot) holds enough water for 2-3 people. It's just the right size, if one of you has a bigger cup, it has just the little extra water you need - but no waste!
I had a few questions about the kettle that were answered quickly and effectively. I feel that if I have any further questions I will be taken care of.
All in all a nice modern tea pot that should last my wife and I a long time. Oh, under $20? Can't go wrong really.
