Key Features

Brushed stainless steel

We have reviewed many tea kettles and each and every one of them use stainless steel with a smoother finish. Some have even used the coating for better results. This a nonelectric Kettle with brushed stainless steel. This gives the steel much-needed longevity and hardness. However, the material is not 100% stainless steel. As a result, some might see rusting if you have not maintained it well.

Large bottom with uniform heat conduction

When the bottom of a Kettle is large the cooking or boiling area also becomes large even though volume remains the same. As the bottom part of the Kettle will have a high percentage of water, the boiling rate will be high. Further, the heat conductivity will be even. As a result of this, the water will not become hard. Soft boiled water is always better than hard-boiled water.

Built-in whistle and a silicon handle

OXO BREW Good Grips Classic Tea Kettle has a built-in whistle at the front end of the Kettle along with an elongated pouring beak. As the handle has silicon grip, it will be really easy to hold and pour the water. Even the weight is perfect as it does not feel heavy when the Kettle is filled with the water completely.


The design is very classic with a Brushed finish to give a royal look to the Kettle. Ergonomic kind of pouring beak with heat safe curved handle looks really good. The bottom is pretty flat and the sides have declining curve design. The design is good even though there is not even a single aspect glamorized in it.
