About Copper Tea Kettles
When a guest stops by for a quick hello on a breezy autumn afternoon, you fill the handsome copper tea kettle with water and in no time, a pleasant whistle announces tea time. Copper is a smart choice for a tea kettle material, as it is among the best conductors of heat. Water therefore boils more quickly in a copper tea kettle. Some kettles made mostly from steel or other materials still take advantage of copper's conductivity by incorporating a copper bottom to absorb heat as quickly as possible. Meanwhile the attractive reddish glow of a copper tea kettle adds warmth to your decor just as its contents warm your body. The vast selection of kettles on eBay includes lovely designs both modern and traditional, made in the US, UK, Portugal, and beyond. There are brand new kettles as well as vintage and antique kettles. A kettle with an ornamental bird-shaped whistle is an adorable conversation-starter, while a kettle with a stay-cool plastic handle keeps the user's hand safe. Porcelain or other ceramic knobs and handles are also lovely accents on a copper kettle. Gooseneck kettles pour slowly and evenly, which is ideal for the pour-over method of coffee brewing.
