Recommendations for a Reliable, Long-Lasting Tea Kettle?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

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.
