Tea Kettle looks perfect and should last a very long time. Very happy with this item. This is exactly what I was looking for and works like a dream.
What material is this kettle made from? Cast iron. I returned it before using as the directions said there would be some offgassing kind of smell that would go away and the paint or whatever the black coating is was already chipping when I got it. I have two of these, both seem to grow this weird white rock like solid on the inside of the container... I'm wondering what it is? hope its non-toxic Not to worry at all - it's just a little lime/calcium build-up. Basically, your water has some trace minerals that are left behind after the water has evaporated. Just use some basic, generic vinegar to clean it up easily. It will fizz for a bit and dissolve the build-up. I hope that this helps! Lauren of Aiden's Hearth
