Inspired by classic Japanese teapots, Le Creuset's kettle re-creates their elegant shape in enameled steel. The spout has a thumb tab for easy opening, and the hinged nonslip handle locks in place for steady pouring. Carbon-steel kettle heats efficiently to reach the boiling point quickly. Durable porcelain enamel-glaze finish is easy to clean and resists chips, scratches and stains. Heat- and slip-resistant handle secures in place for safe pouring, and can flip down to either side. Whistles when the water reaches a rolling boil; whistle flips up for pouring. Ideal for use on any cooktop, including induction. 1.6-qt. cap. Made in Thailand.
