Kettle, meet . . . Kettle

February 28, 2011

You know how there's always something around your house that you always mean to replace (or fix) but never get around to it?  It stays as is, either because you can't find something to replace it with, or you just don't have the time to fix or replace it?  Well, for me, that something was my kettle.

Yellow Kettle
My old kettle was not purchased for its striking good looks or bubbly personality - it was purchased because I needed a kettle, and it was the cheapest I could find ( Gasp! Yes I admit it, I purchased something knowing full well it was ugly). Whatever looks it did have were unceremoniously diminished a year or so later when one day I neglected to close the whistler and then placed it on the stove.

You guessed it - I forgot all about the kettle, and without the whistle there was nothing to remind me to remove it when the water boiled.  I forgot the kettle so completely that all the water boiled away, and my kettle developed a slight black tinge around the base where the colour started to burn off.  As ugly as it was, I just couldn't bring myself to spend the money to replace it, so it has continued to grace my stove for quite some time in its diminished state.  Until now.
New Stainless Steel Kettle
Voilà!  My sexy new kettle.  Isn't it pretty?  I love the shape.  Plus, as a major bonus, it's not yellow.

    Where did you get this new kettle?

  2. Hello,
    I bought the kettle at Home Outfitters. I have also seen it at Kitchen Stuff Plus.
    Hope that helps!
