A true beauty. Inspired by the classic copper kettles of antiquity, this is a big, beautiful kettle indeed. Hammered copper isn't just gorgeous, it is also excellent for efficient heat transfer while the nickel-plated interior keeps the metals honest. The turned wood handles stay cool to the touch when kettle boils, and the pouring handle can be folded to the side for storage or filling (good news for those of us with shallow sinks). Easy to clean, inside and out, at 2 quarts this is more than ample for heating water for tea or manual-method coffee (or, really, for whatever hot-water needs pop up).
Take Care: The stunning copper exterior is unlacquered, allowing copper to achieve its traditional lived-in patina. If you want to maintain the shiny copper look, polish occasionally (we recommend dipping half a cut lemon in salt). Hand wash with mild soap only, please, and do not scrub with abrasives or soak. Due to the hand-made nature of this item, slight differences in finish are to be expected and celebrated.
Suitable for use on gas and electric stoves, excluding induction stoves.
