This wiki has been updated 17 times since it was first published in December of 2018. If you drink a lot of tea, a good kettle is a necessity. There are plenty of options out there, from glass to enameled cast iron, but in terms of heat retention, durability, and style, stainless steel is hard to beat. It's easy to clean and resistant to corrosion, but, as with most metals, thorough drying after each use is important in order to prevent rust from forming. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.
