Folks, if your tea kettle is all banged up, sad looking and has God knows what growing inside of it….maybe consider springing a few bucks to get a new one.
Here’s a good example, The Farberware Classic Series Teakettle. Looks good and that’s important for a teakettle since it’s on your stove as almost a decoration. And it’s functional..the whistle, the safe grip handle, the stainless steel construction. They aren’t too much at Kohl’s so check it out there or elsewhere on the web.
