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.

Readers, do you have any recommendations for reliable, long-lasting tea kettles, either stovetop or electric?
