Le Creuset Tea Kettle – Time For A Tea Break

le-creuset-tea-kettle Just like everything else Le Creuset make they also make beautifully styled enamel on steel tea kettles.

The Le Creuset Ogive 1.9 quart  tea kettle has a large easy to grip handle that extends well away from the kettle. This is great because it reduces the impact of heat on your hand.

After all the last thing you want when picking up a kettle is to get burnt.

This Le Creuset tea kettle has a snug fitting lid so you wont be troubled by spills.

This Le Creuset tea kettle is made from heavy gauge steel which is coated with a glossy enamel.

It has a unique locking handle that makes it ideal the kettle easy to lift, fill and pour from.

There are mixed comments about the whistle, some reviewers found that in some cases the whistle didn’t work properly and some say it is not loud enough, and then again there were others who had no complaints at all about the whistle.

So if you really want a whistling kettle that you can hear this may not be the kettle you need.

Krups Coffee Grinder Review: Krups Burr Coffee Grinder

krups-coffee-grinderThis grinder from Krups received very mixed reviews on the net with some loving it and others finding major problems with it. The main issue seems to surround the hopper getting jammed and problems with the motor racing. It involved the user having to bang or shake the grinder to get the beans to dislodge in order for it to start again.

A number of others indicated that the machine just gave up after a period of 6 months to a year.

What We Like

  • It has an amazing 17 settings that you can use to grind your coffee from fine to coarse.
  • The actual burr grinders are removable so it makes it easy to clean.
  • It looks good with its brushed stainless steel and black plastic finish.

What We Don’t Like

  • Because of the large number of negative reviews associated with this item and the obvious design faults this is not a product that we can recommend

Staub Red Tea Kettle – For One

staub-tea-kettleThere are times when you are home alone and just looking to relax with a nice hot cup of tea and you know a teabag just isn’t going to do it for you.

So many kettles come in sizes suitable for making many cups of tea, but when you are on your own you want a teapot just for you. And this red tea kettle from Staub fits the bill. This modern designed, square shaped teapot holds 0.5 qt.

The Staub – red tea kettle is made in France from cast iron with an enamel coating that ensures that the heat will be distributed even over the kettle. The stainless steel handles keep the lid secure and swing open when it is time for a refill.
Staub - Cast Iron Round Teapot/Kettle 1qt. (Red) - Home

Now I am sure you will get a lot of use from your Staub square red tea kettle in those quiet moments when you only need to make tea for one. However they also have a lovely round red tea kettle that holds one quart.

I like to drink a variety of teas and my favourites are white tea, darjeeling, and russian caravan. Each has its own particular flavor and I like to try different teas as each has its own particular benefit whether it be uplifting, calming or just a general pick me up.

Chantel Tea Kettle – Liverstrong

Loop KettleWell here is another great looking stylish tea kettle. I love the look of the Chantal Loop Teakettle which has a stylish, modern design with a handle that sweeps up and over the body. It has a nice rounded shape that is designed to heat quickly.

This teapot is ideal for anyone who needs a whistling kettle as it has a pleasant sounding whistle that will let you know that it is time to turn off the burner.

The body is made from durable heavy-gauge 18/10 stainless steel and the kettle is light enough for single handed filling and pouring.

A few people have had problems with the spout melting and another felt the handle gets to a little too warm. And although some people found the lid took some time to master, most people seemed happy with their purchase.

Oxo Tea Kettle Review: Oxo Pick Me Up Kettle

oxo-tea-kettleI really like the look of this kettle. It is stylish and comes in a range of colors to suit any kitchen. It also has a unique pouring spout that opens automatically when you tip the kettle to pour.

This Oxo tea kettle is made of stainless steel and is a nice size at 1.8qt. However, apart from that there is not much more we can positively say about this product.

Unfortunately some minor design flaws have resulted in a product that has caused a few problems for quite a few purchasers. The main issue appears to be around the pouring spout cover melting. Some reviewers experienced this problem from day one while others had the kettle for a few months before it melted.

Others also complained about the handle being hot to touch despite the fact that it is heat resistant.

It looks as though Oxo is working on the problems and it is most likely that they will be sorted eventually but in the meantime it is not a product that we can recommend.
