Q: My experience with tea kettles has not been the best. One of my tea kettles started rusting and chipping paint into the water and the handle of the other kettle broke. I would love some advice from other readers about what tea kettles work and last a long time. I am also thinking of maybe getting an electric kettle instead of a stovetop tea kettle so if anyone has advice about which is better, I'd love to hear it. Sent by Kathryn Editor: Kathryn, we love electric kettles here at The Kitchn! They heat water quickly and efficiently, and the more high-end models can even heat water to a specific temperature to match whatever you are brewing. Here are reviews of some of our favorite models, listed from least to most expensive:
