4 Tips to choosing the best tea kettle


If you are a tea lover, you know how important a tea kettle is. And while you want to be enjoying your tea, you want a kettle that serves its purpose well. That said, below are some helpful tips to consider when choosing a tea kettle.
Functionality
Do you want an electric tea kettle? Is the handle comfortable enough to carry to your patio? Is the kettle suitable for using on your stovetop? When it comes to functionality, almost everything goes into consideration. You want to buy a kettle that is functional to you and your household.
Price
Cheap is expensive. But also, that does not mean that you should spend a fortune on a tea kettle. First decide on what you want then proceed to compare prices from different stores and vendors. If you like a particular kettle, check how it is priced elsewhere to see if you can get a better deal. You don’t have to spend all the cash you had budgeted for, if you can get it at a better price. Also, if the kettle is too cheap then you might find yourself spending more in the future to replace it. The price of your kettle should be as good as its quality. You can check for reviews on different tea kettles then make a decision from there.
Volume of water it can hold
Are you looking for a family tea kettle or do you want a small one just for yourself? Different kettles are sized differently, and depending on how much tea you intend to cook, you need to check the volume of water it holds. If you often hold tea parties at your place or have a bigger family that loves tea, then you might need a relatively big tea kettle. On the other hand, if it is for you only, then a small one will be just fine!
Material it is made of
What kind of material do you want your kettle to be made of? Do you want a simple copper kettle or a sophisticated glass kettle? With regard to the type of material a tea kettle is made of, you will get a myriad of options to choose from. Research well before making the purchase. If you want a kettle that will last you a lifetime, then it boils down to the kind of material it is made of. In addition to lifespan, the kind of material used goes into determining other factors like price, which is another major consideration, among others.

Wrap Up
Choosing the best tea kettle does not have to be complicated or time consuming. Whether you are looking for something to compliment the rest of your kitchenware or to fit a specific function you want it to, there is always a perfect option for you. Also, while you don’t need to blow your cash on a kettle that does one thing only, the above tips are meant to help you make the right decision. A decision such as purchasing a tea kettle may look minor at the time, but down the road you will realize the many advantages it comes with.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
