A good English kettle. A reader wrote in looking for a kettle for her kitchen. Best kettle that we've ever had is the Russell Hobbs traditional cordless kettle. Heavy, attractive, heats up quick, always works. Don't trust Americans in this category. Go with the Brits.
Holds 54 ounces, made of stainless steel with a 360 degree "swivel base" and an anti scaling thing that keeps it clean.
Available all over the place but we found it for $24 on eBay, for $99 at JL Hufford, and for $79 at CookingAppliances.com. MGR
