Top 11 Best Stovestop Tea Kettle Buyer’s Guide and Reviews

How We Choose Our Ratings

There are two types of tea kettles we reviewed: whistling tea kettles, and pour-over kettles. Despite the differences between these two varieties, we found points of comparison to use to rate them against each other.

All of the kettles we reviewed are available on Amazon, where they are rated at least four stars. We also compiled product information and customer reviews from other sources, such as Consumer Reports. In addition, we sorted through all of the customer reviews to weed out the ones that were obviously fake or paid for by the seller.

Finally, we applied our own ratings to each product, based on the features, size, reliability, appearance, and popularity of the kettles. We ended up with twelve tea kettles that we are confident are the best models available.

Bellemain Extra Sturdy Whistling Tea Kettle

Rating:

Bellemain’s extra-sturdy tea kettle is a stainless steel, 2.6-liter whistling kettle that is dishwasher safe. The handle is designed to stay cool even when the water is boiling, and the whistle is loud enough that you’ll be able to hear it throughout the house.

Customers liked how heavy-duty this kettle is, and its wide base that heats water more quickly. Some customers were unhappy with how quickly the stainless steel will rust if you don’t wash and dry it after every use, especially along the seams. Customer service is very responsive and reached out to every negative reviewer to offer a refund.

Rating:

The Barista Warrior pour-over kettle is a 1.2-liter, stainless steel teapot with a built-in thermometer. It’s specifically designed for pour-over coffee and French press but also works well as a tea kettle. The kettle has a long, slender gooseneck spout without a whistle.

Some reviewers were happy about the relatively small size of the kettle as it’s perfect for one single large serving or two small servings. Others wished it was a little bigger so that they could boil more water at one time. The thermometer was great for customers who wanted precise water temperatures for specialty coffees and teas.

Some customers complained of rusting and leaking, as well as the handle or thermometer being cracked right out of the box. Customer service reached out to all of those customers to offer refunds and exchanges.

Rating:

The House of Coco’s stainless steel tea kettle is another 1.2-liter kettle with a gooseneck spout designed for pour-over coffee and tea. This model doesn’t come with a built-in thermometer, but otherwise, it’s very similar to the design of the Barista Warrior. The slim handle and spout give it a more elegant look than some of the other kettles on our list.

All of the customer reviews for this kettle were positive; there wasn’t a single 1 or 2-star rating on Amazon. The only issues customers had, were the handle getting hotter than advertised, and the lip around the rim of the opening being designed to curl under, which traps water and makes it hard to empty.

Though the House of Coco kettle is lacking the thermometer on the Barista Warrior, its low price and high reviews earned it some stars.

Rating:

The Triumphant Chef pour-over kettle is another stainless steel, gooseneck spout coffee and tea kettle with a 1.2-liter capacity. It looks and works almost identical to the Barista Warrior kettle.

This kettle is very lightweight, which is good for people who can’t hold heavy items, but it also makes it feel less sturdy. It conducts heat very well, but the handle stays cool, which makes it even easier to carry. There were very few negative reviews, which were almost exclusively complaints about the plastic handle being cracked. The Triumphant Chef pour-over kettle is everything they advertised it to be.

5

Willow & Everett Whistling Tea Kettle

Rating:

The Willow & Everett tea kettle is a 3-liter, stainless steel teapot with a classic whistle and a capsule bottom. It comes with a stainless steel tea infuser as well. The spout lever is cleverly attached to the handle, which is ergonomic and prevents you from burning your hands on the steam from the spout.

This kettle had nearly ten times more reviews than any of the others on our list. Customers raved about the free infuser, which they say they like even better than the ones you can get at specialty tea stores. The five-layer capsule bottom conducts heat quickly without boiling over.

Some customers had issues with rust, but one very dedicated customer support agent named Cody responded to every negative review to offer refunds and exchanges. The ergonomic design, free infuser, and popularity of the Willow & Everett whistling tea kettle deserved some good reviews.

Rating:

The Elan Collective pour-over kettle is a gooseneck teapot with a 1.2-liter capacity and stainless steel finish. It comes with a built-in thermometer, heat-resistant grip, and steam vents in the lid.

This kettle is well-designed and sturdy, and customers were impressed by how quickly it heats up and how cool the handle stays. One reviewer received a defective teapot with a broken thermometer, but customer service quickly replaced it. The steam vents made the kettle quiet, and the handle is ergonomic and easy to grip.

The Elan Collective pour-over kettle is a solid, no-frills pot with convenient features and a good reputation.

T-fal C76220 Whistling Tea Kettle

T-fal C76220 Specialty Stainless Steel Dishwasher Safe Whistling...
  • Heavy gauge polished stainless steel body
  • Large 3-Liter water capacity
  • Easy to hold heat resistant Bakelite handle

Rating:

T-Fal’s tea kettle is a large-capacity, whistling kettle with a satin finish. At 3 quarts, it’s the largest kettle on our list, though its ultra-thin base ensures that it boils water just as quickly as the smaller models.

Customers love the size of this kettle, which is great for families. The whistle is loud enough to get your attention from anywhere in your house, and the water heats up a lot faster than other kettles of the same size. The handle gets fairly hot, so you’ll need to use an oven mitt when handling it. The spout lever is also right over the spout opening, so you have to be careful not to burn yourself on the steam.

The T-Fal whistling tea kettle is a large, convenient model that heats up quickly and comes with 24/7 customer support.

Rating:

The Kitchen Kite stovetop-safe tea kettle is the only glass teapot on our list. Its capacity is about one quart, and it comes with a deep infuser that can be attached to the kettle to make loose-leaf tea. This kettle also comes with four matching glass teacups, and it’s dishwasher safe.

This tea set is a popular gift, both because it includes the infuser and teacups, and because of how attractive it is. Customers love how easy it is to clean in the dishwasher, as well as how great it looks sitting out in their kitchen. The only major complaints were about the handle getting too hot, the lack of a whistle, and how small it is.

The Kitchen Kite stovetop-safe kettle is a beautiful tea set that makes fantastic tea.

Rating:

The Wonder Sky pour-over tea kettle is a stainless steel gooseneck kettle with a thermometer built-in to the lid. It has a 1.2-liter capacity and comes with a heat-resistant silicone mat so you can transfer the kettle directly from the stovetop to your table.

Customers love the easy-read thermometer, as well as the included silicone coaster. The thermometer is very accurate so that you can brew specialty coffee and tea with precise temperatures. The stainless steel resists rust and corrosion even after many uses and washes.

Like many kettles, the handle isn’t as heat-resistant as the description would have you believe—you should always use an oven mitt while handling this kettle. While the Wonder Sky kettle is very similar to other pour-over kettles on our list, the multitude of happy customer reviews made it stand out.

Rating:

The Sotya stovetop tea kettle has a 2.75-quart capacity and a highly-reflective stainless steel body. It comes with a tea infuser, an extra-long spout lever, and a whistle. The multi-layered capsule bottom conducts heat efficiently to a fast boil. A removable heat-resistant glove can be placed on the handle after boiling to prevent you from burning your hands.

Customers were impressed by both the form and function of the Sotya kettle. The smudge-proof stainless steel surface doesn’t leave fingerprints, and the attached whistle is loud enough to be heard from anywhere in the house.

The tea infuser that comes with the kettle is made from the same stainless steel, and customers love it more than the fancy infusers they bought at specialty tea shops. The only complaint we found is that the heat-resistant glove can be challenging to get on and off every time you use the kettle.

Our main gripe with the Sotya stovetop tea kettle is the price; at $52.99, it’s significantly more expensive than the other kettles on our list. It may have been our top pick if it weren’t for that.

Rating:

The Pykal tea kettle comes in a gift box, making it a popular present for weddings and birthdays. Customers were pleasantly surprised by how genuinely heat-resistant the handle is, and they loved the push-button mechanism for the spout lever.

The whistle is loud enough that you can hear it from the next room, but not so loud it will disrupt other people in the house. In fact, the only issue customers brought up in their reviews was that the whistle wasn’t loud enough for them.

We couldn’t find a single negative thing to say about the Pykal whistling tea kettle, so we gave it our top spot and rated it 5 out of 5 stars.

get on and off every time you use the kettle.

Our main gripe with the Sotya stovetop tea kettle is the price; at $52.99, it’s significantly more expensive than the other kettles on our list. It may have been our top pick if it weren’t for that.

Buyer’s Guide

Tea kettles are a relatively small investment, so many customers don’t do any research before buying one. Not all tea kettles are created equally, though, and some are even made with toxic materials like Teflon and BPA.

All of the kettles we reviewed here are safe and non-toxic, and they make fantastic tea as well! Now that you know which features to look for, and which issues to avoid, you should be able to find the perfect tea kettle for your home and kitchen.
